Let’s Take a Look…

Whether your home is a few years or many decades old, its physical condition is going to be a significant factor in the sales process. Below are a few questions that can help you to determine whether you should sell your home ‘as is’ or fix it up before placing it up for sale.

Have You Had A Home Inspection?

A great first step is before selling your home is to book an inspection by a licensed home inspector. This will provide you with a full list of minor and major issues with your home. If your only issues are small, minor ones then it is worth your time to patch them up before you sell. However, if you are facing costly repairs such as a roof replacement or foundation repair, you will have some thinking to do.

Can You Afford Renovation And Repair Costs?

Speaking of costly repairs, can you afford to invest the funds necessary to fix up your house? Depending on the inspection results, you may be on the hook for thousands of dollars in renovation costs. If you do not have the money, then you may be forced to sell as is.

Keep in mind that there are loans and other financial products designed to help homeowners like you with home renovations. Be sure to check in with your bank or mortgage lender to see if you qualify.

How Fast Do You Need To Sell?

Another question you will need to answer is: how fast do you need to get the home sold? If you are in a rush because you have to move or switch jobs, then you may need to sell the house as is. However, if time is on your side, then it might be worth waiting until your renovations or repairs are complete.

What Does Your Agent Recommend?

Finally, what course of action does your real estate agent recommend taking? If the repairs needed are minor, or the market is hot enough that buyers might overlook any issues, then your agent might suggest selling as is. Conversely, if the market is moving slowly, then it might be worth investing the time needed to fix things up.

    When I inherited a house from my parents I didn't know what to do... I was devastated with the tragic loss of my Mother dying and left with a house in disarray and payments for a mortgage I was supposed to takeover. I did not have the finances available to be able to handle this type of burden and so when I called Unlimited Cash Buyers they solved my situation for me very quickly. The team was very empathetic to my situation and easy to work with. Not once did I feel pressured throughout the whole transaction. I would highly recommend Unlimited Cash Buyers!!

    Facing foreclosure was a scary and overwhelming part of my life. My future was uncertain and I didn't want to end up with a foreclosure on my credit report that would stick with me for 7 years... Unlimited Cash Buyers came right in and caught me up on my arrears to save me from foreclosure and then took the hassle of my house of my hands. It feels like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders! Thanks again Unlimited Cash Buyers!
