Top 10 things to do before selling your home.

1- Make Repairs

Look inside the house, look for things like stained ceiling‘s, missing tiles, broken windows and doors, heavily scratched floors and other signs of neglect.

Make a list of everything you see and then decide which things you want to tackle.
