It’s a Buyers’ market and Buyers will have strong expectations right now…that Sellers will repair problems. Some Buyers may develop their itemized list down to re-caulking a tub, and Sellers should be ready to deal with this. Some Buyers are willing to negotiate but many are not. And the question for Sellers is this: If you choose not to repair that running toilet and the Buyer walks away from this transaction over that issue, will that be okay with you? I would say, don’t let that happen!
