How to Quickly Sell an Old House That Needs Work

Selling an old house that needs work can seem like a time-consuming, stressful, and expensive endeavor for many. However, for the many homeowners who value simplicity, speed, and certainty, they can save their valuable time and resources by turning to us! We’ll buy houses in any condition — and we mean any!

Selling a House in Bad Condition
Let’s say you have inherited a house that needs work, and are looking to get rid of it as soon as possible to avoid paying the mortgage and property taxes. Or maybe you are moving out of your “fixer-upper” with short notice, and need a quick influx of cash to jumpstart your relocation expenses. Whatever the circumstances, our team is here to lend a helping hand in times of distress, uncertainty, and extenuating circumstances.

If you do not have the time, money, or patience to make necessary repairs to the house whatsoever, you could sell it “as is” to us! This involves informing us of all the faults of the home, just as an inspector would. But don’t worry — we’ll foot the bill and make all the arrangements to make the necessary repairs, and you won’t have to incur the costs of any of it or manage the project on your own time. In the end, selling your home as-is, even if it’s quite the fixer-upper, is often the easiest way to sell fast.

Selling a House with Code Violations
Traditional buyers may fall in love with your home’s tasteful crown molding or wainscoting, but all the vintage charm in the world won’t save you from a code violation. This may seem like a huge red flag that seriously hurts your chances of getting any worthwhile return on investment. However, hearing that your house isn’t up to code doesn’t necessarily mean you’re doomed never to sell your home. When selling a house with code violations, you’ve got a few options moving forward — most streamlined of which is selling your home to us as is!

Even if your house has code violations, our approach still applies — we’ll survey your property and present you with a fair offer that reflects any violations you fear may hurt your home’s chances on the open market or via traditional real estate channels. But unlike going through an agent or a realty group, we partner with you in the fact that, sometimes, time is genuinely of the essence. With us, you’ll be able to close quickly!
