Avoid massive home repairs
Oftentimes, homeowners want to sell their home, but are overwhelmed by the need for multiple repairs and have limited time and money. Homes demand constant maintenance and upkeep in order to maintain top value. When houses have not been updated in years, they require more repairs. A few basic repairs including fresh paint on the interior and exterior, a new roof, an updated kitchen, updated bathrooms, a new heating and air conditioning system, and new carpet and flooring can cost anywhere from $50,00 – $100,000. Hiring a reputable and licensed contractor is a huge undertaking, especially when you are on a time crunch. Add timelines and unexpected repairs (leaky pipes, water damage, termites) to the equation, and you’ve got yourself an expensive headache.

Now is the best time to sell your home that needs repairs. Are you in the position to spend thousands of dollars in home repairs, with no guarantee it will sell on the market? Can you say with certainty that you will sell your house for enough money to regain all you put in for repairs? Do you have the time to wait for the completion of the repairs while mortgage, utility, taxes, and insurance bills accrue? Home repairs need to be managed carefully, and may take anywhere from six months to over a year to complete. The market is unpredictable, and there is no telling what the market will look like in six months to a year. If the stars align perfectly, and all the repairs go according to plan, you may still face an appraisal issue. The appraisal needs to match or exceed the sales price, and that does not always happen. Do you want to worry about being stuck with a low appraisal price, and potential buyers wanting to renegotiate? Wouldn’t it be so much easier to simply sell your house ‘as-is’ and save yourself the hassle? You could potentially walk away with the same amount of money you would have had to invest in home repairs, but without the frustration. Let us deal with the costly, time-consuming repairs while you collect the cash value for your home.
