Don’t hide repairs- it’s best for the buyer to know what projects might lay ahead when purchasing your home
Buyers: You may think you’re looking at a freshly painted deck, room or even a great roof covered in snow. What you may be seeing are signs of a cover-up. Some sellers think a few coats of paint will mask damages. (i.e. wood rot, splintering, or water damage).
If the sellers mention that a structure has been recently painted; ask the home inspector to take a closer look to ensure that problems aren’t hiding in plain sight.
