Last time we talked about sprucing up your home for sale (or your own enjoyment) by staging. In this issue, let’s discuss the more “structural” aspects of your home. As you’re probably aware, your home will require an inspection as part of a sale transaction. Even if you plan to rent or even stay in your home, these same elements are important maintenance items. Typically when we are going through our home, we don’t notice obvious problems because we’re around them every day. Then when we go to sell or rent, suddenly there’s a huge overwhelming laundry list of problems to deal with. Or, if you plan to stay in your home, you don’t notice a problem until something breaks and there’s a crisis.
