Is the idea of selling your home giving you a giant headache when you consider the long list of improvements needed before you can even go to market?
Before you begin an overhaul of your property and bring in painters or contractors, you may wish to consider another option: selling your home as-is.
And here’s why:
YOU MAY SAVE A BUNDLE OF MONEY
There is no doubt that making repairs to your home can be a burden on your bank account, but that’s not all. Deciding which repairs to make is stressful, hiring the proper tradespeople can be difficult and time-consuming resulting in a delay bringing your home to the market.
But you may not have to go through all that hassle. Clean up your property, tuck away clutter and make your home feel comfortable and livable. The rest is up to the new owner to decide!
YOU CAN PRICE YOUR HOUSE TO SELL—FAST!
Because you haven’t invested substantial money in home improvements, an as-is home sale can be priced to sell quickly. Many homebuyers are attracted to the concept of a lower starting price for a home and an enticing sales price can entice more buyers to see the home which may help you to get it sold faster.
LET A BUYER MAKE YOUR HOME THEIR OWN
Truthfully, most buyers have a vision of their unique dream home. Chances are high that buyers may change out the flooring that you just spent thousands to install. Because there is a good chance that buyers may wish to make changes to the home, keeping money in their pockets on the sales prices allow them enough wiggle room to complete those renovations to their own taste and style.
