Price, location and neighborhood, though largely out of your control, all top the list of features that buyers are attracted to. Outside of those, though, the condition of the property is the next most important aspect a buyer will consider. And unlike those items first mentioned, the condition of your property is something that you can affect. To make the most impact and have an edge over the competition, condition can make all the difference.
A house in great condition will attract more solid buyers—that is, serious motivated and qualified buyers. Fixer-uppers can attract more risky buyers – those with less secure funding.
