Wth any older home, those are definitely good questions to think about when selling it. With a home of that age and the price range it is in, you may have a good possibility of having buyers going through an FHA loan to purchase the home. With fuses, I have heard that as long as the fuses are covered properly in a box and the wires are done properly as well, that may not be an issue, so you may be okay there. Although these days, it is better to have an updated home electrically with the electronics age we are in. With the asbestos issue, what other people have mentioned is good to make sure the pipes are wrapped properly so it is not to be disturbed since because of the hazardous nature of the material, removing it will be an expensive cost. I live in a home built in 1904 and my husband's family has updated it since the 1980s, but there will always be something to fix on it, like the windows and doors, roof, etc. I wish you well on the sale of your home and the choice you decide to make with those repairs.
