Asked by KibKib, Berkeley, CA • Mon May 19, 2008
Has anyone had their selling-Realtor handle subcontracting of medium-level repair, renovation, and staging before a sale (e.g. major pest, sewer, kitchen, bath, staging)? I would like to sell my central Berkeley home this summer, and the speed and simplicity of this solution is attractive. They claim turnaround time of one month. However, I would like to get a sanity check on whether this approach has worked for anyone.
Are there pitfalls I should look out for?
I've already had one round of house inspections by independent service folks (facilitated by my Realtor), and I am inclined to get additional estimates on the pricey stuff (30k of pest) .
Also, what sale-condition is standard for a Central Berkeley home? (My house is located midway between North Berkeley and Downtown Bart). Does it need to be squeaky clean? Will 15k of outstanding pest deter buyers?
Thanks for any advice!
