Sellers quite often hope they can ignore a problem with their home. They don't want to go to the expense of doing the necessary repair.
The problem is, the buyer isn't going to want to deal with that problem either. If they do accept the fact that they will have to make the repair, they will reduce their offer to cover the cost.
Recently I consulted on a home where the seal on the window of a sliding door was gone. The pane was fogged up. The seller was hoping the weather would be good and the fogging would not show while he was on the market.
With all the competition on the market today, sellers cannot afford to ignore a problem. Buyers will simply move on to the next house with no issues to deal with.
Make that last investment in your home so that you can succeed and move on with your life.
