Greater Baton Rouge’s Home Appraiser with Accurate Valuations Group LLC, Bill Cobb, shares Tara-Nicholle Nelson’s insight, “4 property flaws that will block offers this summer”
I quote a small section of article below,

In my experience, there’s one fundamental truth about house hunting: You can never fully escape the haters. That’s right. The haters. The only way to live a 100 percent hater-free life is to never stick your neck out, and never do anything, because, as the saying goes, you simply cannot please all of the people all of the time.
And this is particularly true with real estate and putting your listings on the market – because homes, locations, aesthetics and such are so much a matter of personal preference, some people will find something to criticize about even the most perfectly staged, priciest properties on the market.
As a listing agent, your job is not to try to make your listings be all things to all people – but you do want it to appeal to enough buyers that you get one great offer . That said, you don’t want your listing to be the house that nearly every buyer and broker sees, rolls their eyes at and utters the same few, predictable, deal-killing criticisms.
Fortunately, what is predictable is avoidable.
Unfortunately, many of the things that make a listing susceptible to haters are issues on the seller’s side of the property preparation responsibilities.”
