repairs-checklistOnce you have decided to have Bonnie help you sell your house—but before we put it on the market—you will need to go through your house to check for any possible repairs. Depending on the condition of your home, you may only have a couple of necessary repairs or a long, expansive list.

Repairs should be completed to appeal to potential buyers, who expect to tour a clean, damage-free house. These are different from work orders, which would have to be completed before a sale can be finalized to meet safety regulations and contract conditions.

Here is a list of potential repairs you may need to consider if you want to increase your chances of appealing to the most buyers.
