Truth is, selling your house when it is in a poor condition isn’t as hard as you think. If you’re in a difficult financial situation and can’t even think about how to sell your home that is unsightly because you think you need to fix it up first… Don’t despair.
Maybe your house is decades old and you haven’t been able to afford much- needed structural and cosmetic repairs. You know the roof is in dire need of replacement or the foundation is cracking.
Old, worn and dirty carpet? Does the kitchen scream 1970s avocado green and harvest gold?
Maybe it was a great neighborhood 20 years ago, but now the area is full of dilapidated houses, including yours. Or perhaps you owned a rental property with tenants that caused costly damage.
If you turn to a real estate agent, you’re likely to be met with ardent requests to make major repairs and sink in money you don’t have to make your house presentable to would-be buyers. If you do convince a real estate agent to list your house “as-is”, it’s likely to sit unsold as buyers don’t even give it a second thought when they drive up or see the picture on the Internet.
But there’s no need to feel stuck. We Teach Houses will make “selling your house” easy, quick, and painless.
We Teach Houses begins by looking at your house, gathering area data and then, in most cases, will offer a free estimate.
If you decide to proceed, there’s a good chance we’ll buy your house just as it is. You won’t have to delay your stressful situation or make any costly repairs that might be needed and you won’t have to worry about making more mortgage payments on your house. What’s more, you won’t have to worry about lengthy closing time.
We’ll start by determining the value of your home. We’ll come up with the price based on what it would be worth AFTER repairs are completed.
Some of the most common repairs that are factored in for houses that are in a rough shape are carpet replacement, walls and trim painted, fixtures updated, gutters cleaned and painted, exterior painted, landscaping, HVAC repairs, foundation repairs, and kitchen and bathroom updates.
We then deduct the cost of repairs, holding/selling costs, and profit. Once we gather the required information, we’ll meet with you and view your home. From there, we’ll discuss your options. If we’re able to help you, we’ll discuss price, the contract, and the closing date. Then you can walk away minus a house and with a check-in your pocket.
We Teach Houses will not only show you how to sell your less-than-beautiful home but, it will be much cheaper than using a real estate agent. Choosing a real estate agent is always expensive. Costs associated with a real estate agent generally include commissions and sales discounts. They also include title, closing, and survey costs. Lastly, they include holding costs (taxes, insurance, yard maintenance, mortgage payment, utilities). Holding costs span over the average six to nine months that the house is on the market.
