Seller Tip #5: Make Repairs
It is important to evaluate your home to make sure everything is in good working condition. The home inspector will test everything and it is a great idea to fix anything before your home even hits the market, this will set you up for a smooth transaction!
Here is a list of some of the things home inspectors check for:
Sprinklers in working condition and not leaking
Fencing and gates in good condition
Stucco/siding in good condition. Note: This is extremely important if you have any dry rot in your siding! This is a must fix!
All light in working order: Easy fix to replace lightbulbsJ
Roof and gutters in good condition
Garage door in working order
All appliances in working order
Heat and AC in working order
All plumbing is in working order and no leaks
Smoke detectors in working order

You could always hire a home inspector beforehand and fix everything on the report to give you even more of a head start, and buyers love it!
