How Do You Go About Selling a House That Needs Repairs?
So your here, probably wondering ….
“Are there important repairs to make before selling a house? How should I go about selling my house that needs major repairs?
Many homeowners struggle with these same questions when considering to selling a home that needs repair. There are plenty of solutions that come to most people’s minds. First, you could pay to fix all the major repairs (expensive) and have a real estate agent whine that you still haven’t updated it well enough (darn millennials). You could, of course, try to talk to a Jacksonville real estate agent to sell it as-is. Or, you could just eat the loss, pay to have it torn down, and sell the lot. Let’s look at all the options or hassles below to decide on your best move to make.
Hire an Expert – or Go DIY – to Handle the Repairs
Let’s look at the first idea. If your house needs major repairs like a new roof ($12-15K), a plumbing overhaul ($6k), new wiring throughout ($7k), foundation repair(+$25k) or new ductwork for a updated HVAC system ($3k), you’re looking at a lot of money ($$$$$).
And, even if you go ahead and spend the money, the costs of repairs can easily eclipse any profit you stand to make for the sale. Worse yet, it could put you in the hole – and you’d have to take out a loan to pay for the repairs.
And, then, there are real estate agents. Most of them don’t want to bother with selling houses without all the modern bells and whistles. So, to meet most of their demands, you’d have to lay out even more cash.
Quartz countertops. The whole interior painted in today’s trendiest color. Recessed lighting everywhere. Money you probably don’t have – or want to spend on repairing something you don’t plan to live in.
You could lose your shirt – and then some. Unless the house is worth a heck of a lot of money, it’s usually not a wise investment of your life’s savings. Or your time, if you go the DIY route.
Have a Real Estate Agent Sell Your House As-Is
There might be some Jacksonville-area real estate agents who will try to sell your house as-is. However, properties that need major roof, electrical, foundation, plumbing or AC repairs typically don’t qualify for conventional or government financing (That’s a major sticking point).
That problem puts you in a double bind. Most people won’t be able to buy your house for cash. If they can’t get a loan, they can’t buy your house. Unless a potential buyer has the cash to buy and repair your house, you’re out of luck.
And — those buyers who can pay cash won’t want to tie up their money in repairs, so they’ll be likely to move on to a more move-in ready home. Unfortunately, whatever agent you hire will be more than happy to show them such a home.
Tear Down Those Walls
Finally, if the costs of repairs or the hassle of selling a home in poor repair exceed what you can afford or more than what the property is worth, you can always tear down the house and sell the lot. However, that option, too, costs money.
Tear-down costs aren’t cheap. In fact, the money you’ll make from selling the lot sometimes won’t even cover the costs of knocking down the house.
