With the real estate market’s recent emphasis on curb appeal, it ought to come as no surprise that your home’s appearance is a major selling point. Even if you have serious repairs that need to be made, those issues could be forgiven by an eager buyer if your home is gorgeous enough. But what if your home is not only unappealing but actually downright ugly?
Potential buyers are looking for houses that are move-in ready and don’t require a whole lot of work. If you can’t afford to make certain improvements or renovations, you might feel completely out of luck. How can you get rid of an ugly house that no one wants to buy? Here are a few ways you can get your unwanted property off your hands even if it’s the ugliest house on the block.
Don’t hide the flaws
Your first instinct when you want to sell your house may be to hide the problems your property has. However, it’s better that potential buyers know about the property’s flaws even before they read the disclosure form. The reason for this is because your property’s flaws are going to come to light at some point during the selling process and if you wait too long you’re essentially wasting both your time and the time of the buyer if they’re not interested. By being upfront with the flaws of your property, you’re more likely to find potential buyers who are fine with those issues. Home investors like Philly Home Investor are more than happy to buy ugly houses from sellers who want to get rid of them.
Be realistic with your pricing
A recipe for emotional and financial disaster is to hold out the hope that your property is going to sell for top dollar. With up to 143,105 U.S. properties facing foreclosure in the past quarter alone, it’s understandable to want to sell your house for the highest price possible. But if your property isn’t in the best shape, trying to get it to sell for top dollar will only make your property sit on the market for a longer period. Houses that sit on the market and regularly lower their prices in an effort to find any potential buyers actually end up lowering their value because buyers start to think something’s wrong with the house.
That said, if you’re trying to sell your house fast, it’s essential to make sure you’re not playing around with the price. You need to have your home realistically evaluated so you can set a realistic and competitive price that will get your home off the market. Home investors like Philly Home Investors can evaluate your home for you and give you a cash offer for your property that’s fair with no additional costs or hidden fees.
