The Advantages of Selling Your House “As Is”

When you’ve decided to sell your house, you may be tempted to just put it on the market right away to see if anyone will make you an offer “as is.” It used to be that potential buyers would look beyond the surface appearance and “see the possibilities.” Sadly, those days are gone. Today’s buyers want to move in with little or no repairs or cosmetics required.



“But maybe someone will make me an offer,” you think. “What have I got to lose?”

The risk is that you do 20 showings and get no offers. Word spreads like wildfire in the realtor community. It’s hard to come back from a bad first impression.

The most successful realtors will tell you to get your house in tip top condition before putting it on the market. But there’s a problem. The average house requires $40,000 of repairs and upgrades in order to command the highest possible price. Even though most repairs and upgrades will raise the market value enough to cover the costs, the question is whether you want to spend the time and money.

Here’s one alternative to consider. Homestead Road will buy your house “as is,” right away, so you can avoid all the expense and headaches of fixing it up yourself.  When you consider the cost of repairs and upgrades, the monthly payments for the six months to complete the rehab, and the realtor’s commission, the Homestead Road offer will be close to a wash. Click here to find out what it’s like to sell your house to Homestead Road.

If you want to sell your house “as is,” Homestead Road has a good solution for you.
