Realtor post-showing comments
Had a showing right away and buying agent post-showing claims that "not maintained well, too many work to be done". Set aside poor English.
A house is ONLY two years old, after closing from builder took my time to do all 30-90 day small fixups with builder before renting it out. The house WAS tenanted 1.5 years ONLY.
After tenants were out replaced carpet and put a new hardwood floors throughout. Repainted the entire house.
My realtor is somehow making this feedback a big deal as if we BETTER take into considerations prospective buyers comments.
I feel this to be bit unfair. Yes the house WILL show some usage marks, it is NOT brand new never lived in, so would you expect ABSOLUTE zero wear and tear on the house?
I am really puzzled.
I went through the house again what can be replaced those minor things here and there and in my mind calculated what it costs on the market to have it done (I am currently doing my basement in another home I own so kind of know the current costs). And all these minor things that I could find replaced, repainted (say i didn't repaint exterior front porch columns, that has a little paint chipped, yes that can be painted) fixed etc still won't amount more than few thousand dollars. It is really puzzling what stops prospective buyer to make an offer having in mind this (substract and make an offer if you are interested) instead of just making comments that "your house isn't maintained well and needs lots of work".
