It is true that if you plan to sell your damaged house, you are in for an uphill climb. However, that is only true in certain situations. For instance, if you plan to put your house on the market and hire a realtor or do a For Sale by Owner (FSBO), your house could stay on the market indefinitely. Finding an interested buyer is next to impossible.
One of the reasons for this is that, like people, properties develop reputations. Once the word gets out that the property is damaged, realtors won’t even look at the house, much less show it to a prospective buyer. The good news is that no matter how damaged your house is, you can still sell it. A local home buyer in Kansas City can buy your house as-is. You can sell your house fast for cash.
When hiring a real estate agent, the agent works on your behalf to find a buyer for the property. The Realtor does all the marketing and negotiation necessary to sell the damaged property. A real estate agent helps you set a realistic asking price and advises you on the repairs necessary to attract a buyer. However, when you work with a realtor, you’ll pay them six percent of your profit in addition to paying for all closing costs and repairs. Plus, you are responsible for preparing your house for showings.
If you think that selling a damaged house is hard under a realtor, it is twice as hard to sell it yourself. With an FSBO sale, you avoid realtor commissions. You also have more control over marketing the house and setting the price. However, you also assume all selling responsibilities. Plus, you still must pay for all repairs and closing costs. You’ll also need to be a skilled negotiator when haggling with buyers who already have you at a disadvantage since your house is damaged.
A local home buyer will look at your property, make a quick offer, and pay a healthy percentage of the property value. You pay for no closing costs, realtor commissions, or repairs. The buyer purchases the property as-is. While it is true that you may lose a little money on the house, you may come out ahead by avoiding expensive repairs and upgrades to the house.
Did you know that, on average, it takes 60 to 90 days to list and sell your house on the market if you go through a real estate agent? You could also pay for considerable out-of-pocket expenses while spending countless hours getting your house ready to sell. Consider these common expenses associated with a traditional house sale:
|Listing costs||Marketing costs|
|Realtor commissions||Appraisals and inspections|
|Taxes and title transfers||Closing costs|
You may not have considered how much it takes to repair or renovate your home. If you must replace the roof, windows, plumbing, AC, or electrical system, you could spend thousands of dollars before the inspector approves the sale of your home. In the end, you may need to ask yourself, “Is it worth it?”
