When preparing your house for sale, go in the attic and see if there are any buckets!  Don't leave any buckets in the attic!  Why?  because after the house is sold the buyer will have the home inspected.  When the inspector sees a bucket they ASSUME it is up there to catch drips from a roof leak.  So then it appears to the buyer they you were 'hiding' issues from them!  And they also assume it's a roofing issue!!!  There is no reason to have a bucket in the attic so be sure to check out your attic before putting your house up for sale!!!  Hear Pat's take on this topic!
