“No Time Like the Present”
for Home Repairs

One of the things I’ve repeatedly seen over the years is Sellers, in preparation for going on the market, finally tackle all the projects they put off while they lived in the home.

Like replacing an especially stained Living Room carpet; refinishing that horribly scratched hardwood floor in the Dining Room; and getting a handyman to fix all the broken sashes in the double-hung windows.

No sooner than all those projects are complete, than the owners will invariably: a) remark how much more pleasant their home is to live in; and b) kick themselves for not having done it earlier, for themselves, rather than for the benefit of the next owners.

So, if you happen to be in this category, here’s my advice: fix it — and enjoy it — now!
