Last, but not least, in the home improvements price tweaking category is to view your property the way your buyer’s home inspector will. Don’t wait until the home inspector gives your buyer the down and dirty of everything that needs to be repaired immediately. If your roof is about to go, own up to it and adjust your price. Similarly, if your Dutch Colonial’s foundation is beginning to crumble and the comp up the street is in mint or near-mint condition, own it now. It will look a lot better to your buyer to see you acknowledge what needs to be done and let them know the price has been adjusted accordingly, than to pray they don’t notice and have them feel betrayed when the building inspector spells it all out for them.
