Step Three: Make Repairs Ahead of Time
A long list of necessary repairs is a major put-off for most buyers, who may decide to move on rather than deal with the headache of fixing up the home.
If you got your pre-sale inspection from step two, you should have your list of needed repairs handy and ready to start. We recommend doing as many repairs yourself as possible, and then hiring a contractor to complete the rest.
If you are unsure who to call to repair your home, the BCS Dream Team can provide a list of reputable and highly regarded local vendors in the Bryan / College Station area that we recommend. Even though we narrow down your search for you, we still encourage you to contact each contractor and ask for references and make sure that you are comfortable with the integrity and experience of the contractor you choose.
If you decide not to make major repairs beforehand, hire a reputable professional to provide cost estimates that you can provide to potential buyers to put their mind at ease.
