The number one question asked when a seller is ready to market their home is: What are buyers looking for? 

Here is answer # 1 in my blog series of "How to Market Your Home". 

People don't want to buy a home that needs new siding or a new roof or it has a lot of work that needs to be done in the house before it's livable. YES, these can be expensive things to fix, but chances are a bank won't approve the mortgage for your buyer unless these things are fixed anyway.

You'd be surprised how many buyers won't buy a home simply because it needs a fresh coat of paint on the walls, or there's an "ugly carpet" in it, or there is something in the home that the owner thought was fabulous but really, to anyone else, looks like an eyesore or will take a lot of work to undo.  Stay tuned for my next post on "How to Market Your Home".
