2. How important is the condition of my property to its sale?
The answer to this
question depends upon your priorities. Are you hoping to extract the maximum
sale price for your home? If so, condition and appearance can both be very
important. If, however, you've let "deferred maintenance" catch up
with you, your priorities may be different. You may wish to sell your home in
"as is" condition, allowing its buyer to repair/replace items as
she/he sees fit. In this case, your ultimate sale price will be less than what
the same buyer would be willing to pay for your home in mint condition.
