Fix any maintenance issues
After a home has been lived in, chances are there are some fixes that will need to be made. In some scenarios, those fixes could be big and costly (but they will come back on the inspection report so it is best to *atleast* know about them upfront!) while others are affordable and easy. Leaky faucet? Fix it! Something so small and simple that goes untouched suggests poor house maintenance which can be a turn off. Fixing wonky drawers, cabinet hinges, and re-caulking suggest pride in ownership. In a buyer’s mind, if you didn’t let the little things go, your home for sale in Incline Village, NV won’t have as many major issues to be concerned about.
