I read an insightful post by Realtor and Blogger Joan Cox about how Buyers reward the Seller with a smooth transaction when all the deferred maintenance has been taken care of before the house has been put on the market, and wanted to share it on my blog here, too.

You can read the original post following this link:

When a Seller Prepares a Home for Sale - the Buyers will Reward the Seller

 

The author makes a very strong point, that if Sellers take care of deferred maintenance, before the house is on the market, the Buyers will reward the Seller with a smooth transaction.

Deferred maintenance is not liked by Buyers even in a strong Seller market.
