For many homeowners the thought of selling a fixer upper property seems like a difficult and time-consuming task. While this is true for some cases here at Venture One Realty we are here to help. We can assist you in selling your fixer upper property with some tips so you can sell quickly and for a fair price.
Fix Up Your Property to Showcase its Potential
Does your property needs major repairs or is it going into foreclosure? If so then this means that they probably want to sell the property fast. So instead of spending months on a total remodel, you should take some small steps to make it more visually appealing. This can help potential buyers see the property in a better light. You will want to clean up as much as possible and make cosmetic fixes if possible. This is when you will want to showcase the property’s potential.
Learn The Value Of Your Home
To you as the selling home owner you probably think that your home is worth a certain amount, but do you know for sure?
When it comes to the value of your home you need to factor in the necessary repairs and upgrades that the home will require. With all of these calculations you might find that the actual value of your property today might be much less than you had originally thought. It is important to note that you should not expect to get retail prices for a house that needs repairs.
Understanding the value of your home will help you sell the fixer upper for the most suitable price. You can then decide whether you would like to increase the value by making a few upgrades, as mentioned above.
Don’t Appear Desperate To Sell
It is likely that potential buyers are going to approach you with some low-ball offers. If you are wanting to sell fast, then this can sound enticing but if you can, you’ll want to stand firm until you are able to get a fair and realistic offer on your house. Do not think that you have to jump at the first offer presented to you unless this is your only choice. If you don’t appear desperate to sell your fixer upper, then you will get a better offer.
Sell Your Fixer Upper to an Investor
Selling your distressed property to a professional buyer, will save you time and money. A professional investor is looking for homes just like yours, that show a lot of potential. These kinds of properties are perfect for their portfolio, and will likely help you to sell your fixer upper fast.
