“House maintenance can be a daunting prospect for homeowners, particularly when preparing to sell their property. Frequently, sellers underestimate the extent of necessary repairs hidden within their home’s structure, from the roof to the walls and foundation. Nevertheless, there are strategies for selling your home without shouldering all the associated risks and costs.”
Engaging a skilled inspector can provide you with valuable insights into potential repairs that might be needed. This allows you to investigate the current market rates for these necessary fixes. Subsequently, you have the option to sidestep handling the repairs personally when selling your house by incorporating an equitable credit into the sales contract, covering the estimated total repair expenses. Being well-informed about your property’s condition ensures you won’t be caught off guard by discovering its status and facing unreasonable repair credit demands from buyers during negotiations.
An alternative approach to steer clear of repairs when selling your house is to consider selling it in its current condition to cash buyers. Cash buyers don’t need to navigate the complexities of the loan approval process and have the flexibility to purchase properties in need of maintenance. However, the challenge with this approach lies in the fact that most buyers in the conventional market have set aside funds for their down payment and seek homes that are move-in ready. The majority of these buyers lack the additional time to wait for repair work to be completed or the extra funds necessary to undertake such projects.

Frequently Asked Question
Maybe you have a few questions. That’s okay; most people do. So here’s a quick question people ask us… along with our answers. If you still have a question, don’t hesitate to contact us (or give us a call) and we’ll be happy to answer it for you.
Q: How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: Real estate agents list properties and hope that someone will buy them. The agent shows the properties to prospective buyers and then take a percentage of the sale price if they find a buyer. Oftentimes, the agent’s commission is 3-6% of the sale price of your house (so if it’s a $100,000 house, you’ll pay between $3,000 – $6,000 in commissions to an agent). Agents provide a great service for those that can wait 3-6 months to sell and who don’t mind giving up some of that sale price to pay for the commissions. But that’s where we’re different: We’re not agents, we’re home buyers. Our company actually buys houses. We don’t list houses. Since we’re actually the one buying the house from you, and we pay with all cash… we can make a decision to buy your house within a couple of days (sometimes the same day). Again, we make our living by taking the risk to buy the house with our own cash, repair the house, and market it ourselves to find a buyer (which is the hard part in this market).
