Will the buyer see the defects?

When a buyer comes looking.

Will they see the beauty of the house or all the small imperfections?


Many things that turn buyers off are little things.

Missing or broken switch plates.

Bad weather striping on the doors.

Window wells that are stained from being wet.


These are all small issues that can easily be taken care of.

These are normal maintenance.


If these issues are prevalent...the buyer wonders how the big things are.
