Be it car, house or body - deferred maintenance will get you every time!

Last Monday night as I was leaving a local store my turn signals quit.  They were fine when I drove to the store.

The next morning I go out to see if any of the other lights were malfunctioning and it was a miracle – the signals were working again!

And they worked fine until Saturday night when they quit again.  Then yesterday morning – back again.  I know it is probably a short somewhere.

I will get the problem fixed I told myself.

As I was driving to an appointment I realized my car was very similar to many houses I have seen through the years - pesky little items that don't effect function but they start to add up when the buyer does a home inspection!

If you are getting ready to put your house on the market, think about the little things that have been “acting up” through the years.

Maybe it is time to tackle that deferred maintenance!  Enough said!
