Old electrical panels: Buyers will want it "up to code". Get bids from multiple electricians to try and get a reduced repair quote, or offer an amount as a credit in lieu of repair at closing.

Ripped window screens: Window screens will wear out over time, but tears should be taken seriously. Either replace them before listing or offer a credit at closing.

Kitchen walls: Many people prefer open kitchens. If you think your kitchen walls make if feel cramped and that's stalling your sale, consider opening it up yourself

Small closets: There ins't much you can to to ease these concerns, but try to make your closet look roomier by de-cluttering.
