Selling a house takes a lot of work by both the homeowner and Realtor. Since buying a property is a pretty big investment for anyone, the seller should expect total scrutiny from each potential buyer which is exactly what you would do too if you were in their position, right? So if you are planning on selling your home, here are some of the “red flags” from an article in hollandsentinel.com that property buyers are advised to look out for:

10. Additions – Older homes with new additions or remodeling may not cause concern but be aware of floor plans and over investing. Incomplete construction or incomplete restoration can change the value of the property.

11. Poor construction or condition – Check the quality of building materials and workmanship like miter joints, door frames, mop boards, consistency in plastering, woodwork, and painting. Also, check major parts like the roof, off-brand HVAC systems, support beams and equipment operation.

Can you imagine a house in poor condition in Holland? Not even the beautiful daffodils that bloomed earlier this summer which they are so famous for would help make their homes more appealing to potential buyers.
