You’ve heard me advocate for a while now for people to use realtors when they are buying or selling their home. As much as you think you can sell your home without any help, you can wind up leaving a ton of money on the table. One of the most important scenarios for a seller to have a realtor in their corner is if large home improvements are needed.
If you have foundation issues, or any major home repair that this article details, it’s critical that you get help from a professional to determine the answer to the big question.
