Does Your House Need Work?
As years go by living in the same home you tend to become accustomed to the condition of the property. This happens a lot with the elderly who don’t want to spend the time or money in updating their property. There comes a time when the home owner has to eventually sell & now the home is outdated & run down. So what is the secret to selling a house that needs work?
First & foremost you can always remodel the home prior to sale. There is capital that would need to be invested & typically it will cost anywhere from $10,000-$15,000 for a light renovation. A lot of the population does not have 10-15k of money just lying around to update their outdated home when it comes time to sell. They also don’t want to be living in the home throughout the renovation process as it is messy & a headache.
So what are your other options for selling a house that needs work?
You can contact a local house buying company like CB Home Solutions! We buy property all the time that requires some sort of repair to get it up to market condition. When massive repairs are needed, you may not have that many options. It might be better to just get rid of the property instead of going through the renovation process. Our company has taken on projects that require repairs ranging from $5,000-$50,000. Nothing is to big or small & we have the contractors to get through anything.
What is considered to be massive repairs you may ask?
Well, it can be categorized into cosmetic, structural, or mechanical. Costmetic repairs would be considered kitchens, baths, flooring, paint, fixtures, etc. Even though these items are cosmetic, you can easily spend thoussands of dollars when updating them. Structural repairs would include removing walls, foundation repairs, roof, windows, siding, etc. And lastly, mechanical repairs would include furnace, A/C, Water Heater, plumbing, electrical, etc.
