When you put your home up for sale it understandably receives considerable exposure from interested buyers. But given the current conditions of the real estate market, the competition is significantly difficult and potential buyers always have hundreds of properties to choose from. As such, if they find even a single issue in your home, they are likely to be driven away. What can you do in this regard? Have it pre-inspected! This will allow you to make repairs at a reasonable cost, and help avoid the dreaded eleventh hour negotiations.
