I am going to give you The!! biggest tip you will ever need to know regarding water shut of valves and how to stop leaks.
Open the valve all of the way and then BACK IT OFF 1/4 to 1/2 turn. The slight closure will make no difference to the flow but will make a huge difference to the wear pattern that is set up. Now many years later when you turn the valve, the leak will not be at the full open position and chances are very good that it will either not leak or by opening it full, the leak will stop. It's that easy.
It doesn't matter what you do as a seller, you will get screwed over.
