We may think that in order to sell our home, a couple
repairs and touch up will do the work. But what we are not thinking about is
all the in depth problems our homes may carry. We tend to look over the
in-detail problems of a home and go for the cosmetic cover up. This not only
can be a long term problem for the buyer, it may cause your home price to
decrease if these problems are noticed.
Here are 3 things that may be killing your home price, so
taking a second look would not hurt…
Mold – It is not necessarily visible, but there
usually is dampness in walls, ceilings and floors. Usually, where there is dampness,
there is mold growing. Getting rid of mold is costly, preventing it is a lot
more in expensive.
Stigma Property – Homes that have been scenes of
murder, suicide or even ghost. As a seller it is better to disclose all history
of a home, and although you may lose a buyer or two, it is better than ending
up in court for not disclosing information.
Lead Paint – Leaded paint was banned in the United
State on 1978 according to CDC.
Any home built before this year is most likely to have lead paint. For the most
part, these homes have been re-painted with non-lead paint. It would be best to
make sure your walls.There are many other things you
can inspect to assure your home follows safety regulations and is up to date
with them. Prevent your home value from dropping.
