Are you hoping to sell your house for a quick, cash transaction but are worried that outdated decor might make it difficult? You’re in luck! Not only do we buy ugly houses in Jacksonville for cash, but we also have advice on how to get the transaction going. Here are our best tips.
Identify its “flipping” potential
Selling a less-than-beautiful house for cash might not be quite as difficult as you think. It all comes down to the kind of potential a home has to be “flipped” or updated and refurbished to bring it up to a like-new condition. If the foundation and basic structure are in good condition and the layout is workable, it’s okay if the home is otherwise a little on the ugly side. Things like old flooring, a cramped kitchen, or bad wallpaper are minor issues that we remedy all the time when we buy ugly houses in Jacksonville.
Know the difference between surface renovations and deep repairs
When beginning the selling process, make sure you know all the details about the home’s condition, so you can be honest and transparent with the buyer, which will ultimately speed up the process. When we buy ugly houses in Jacksonville, we appreciate knowing upfront if the home’s issues are just on the surface, or if serious structural repairs are needed. Waiting until inspection to learn that information will only slow down the process and lead to frustration on both sides.
Consider the cash you’re saving
When you sell a home for cash in its current condition, you may not get quite the same price for it as you would if you gave a it a bit of a face lift, staged it, and sold it through a real estate agent. However, it’s important to take into account the amount of cash you’re saving by selling your house for cash. By not paying realtor fees and other related expenses, and by not being obligated to spruce up the place to make it more appealing to buyers, you will be saving thousands of dollars! If you add it all up, the selling price should equal roughly what the house would have sold for on the traditional market, minus all of the associated costs. When we buy ugly houses in Jacksonville, though we always factor the condition of the home into our offer, we always offer a fair price that you can feel good about.
