Top 5 Blunders in Selling your Sandpiper Lakeland FL Home

 

Top 5 Blunders in Selling your Sandpiper Lakeland FL Home

 

If you are putting a Sandpiper Lakeland FL home for sale, you want to ensure that the house is in excellent condition. You don't want the buyers backing out of the deal just because they have seen major problems with the house.

 

Here are the top 5 blunders that can sabotage a successful sale:

 

The wall is cracked

Wall cracks may be due to different reasons, but one thing is for sure, it spells poor foundation. It can indicate that the house is shifting on its foundation. It might mean that your Sandpiper Lakeland FL home is sinking in the ground due to poor soil conditions.

 

The Electrical System is Obsolete

Electrical problems do not just indicate an expensive repair but may also mean a safety threat. Upgrading the system to meet local building codes and to provide enough juice to run your appliances can get expensive.  In order to upgrade your electrical system you need to run new wires and cable through finished walls and ceilings.  Electrical systems that are obsolete can pose threats for fire, shock or even electrocution.

 

The Septic Isn't Draining

It is expensive to replace a septic system so be sure that yours is working just fine. No buyer would want an expensive headache in the future.

 

Mold

The presence of molds does not just poses aesthetic issues but health issues as well, many people are allergic to mold. It can also indicate bigger problems like roof leaks or plumbing leaks in the walls.

 

Sagging roof

The roof is one of the foundations of a good Sandpiper Lakeland FL home for sale. A sagging or problematic roof is expensive to reconstruct.

 

Before selling your home, it is important that you inspect your own house and do some repairs. This will help your home appraiser higher and sell quickly.
