Have you ever thought about selling a house as is in the Reno area, but don’t know where to start? Why not sell your house as is? People often think that they need to fix up their house before selling. That is not the case at all. If you’re thinking of selling a house as is in the Reno area, you’ll want to read this blog post all the way to the end.
Selling a house is already stressful enough, but when you add the house needing repairs and renovations, it makes things even more difficult and stressful. So the things that you will need to know to get your house sold are right here in this blog.
Let’s get started.
For Sale By Owner (FSBO)
You can use this approach to sell your house. There are plenty of websites that will allow you to list your home to attract a buyer either here in the Reno area, or surrounding states. Craigslist is a widely know website where you can list your house, and many people do not only in the Reno area, but all over the country. With a few pictures, a description, great title, and a phone number or email address you can have your house in front of buyers in no time. Or you can take an old-school approach and list your house for sale in the newspaper classifieds. Or if you can find a radio classifieds that may yield a buyer (believe it or not, there is at least one radio station that does broadcast a “trading post”, and they are out of Fallon). You can save money on commissions this way, but you may have to wait for the right buyer to come along after weeding through all the “tire-kickers”.
List the House with a Real Estate Agent
You can list your house with a real estate agent. When selling a house that needs renovations or repairs with an agent can put your home in front of more buyers than trying to sell the home yourself. The agent has access to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and anyone that is looking for a house will see yours. One of the drawbacks to selling a house as is on the open market, many buyers are looking for homes that are in move in ready condition. So you may have to fix the problems or lower the price of your house before it is sold.
Selling a House as is to a Professional Home Buyer
This is another option when selling your house as is. Most home buying companies in the area will buy your house. Those companies specialize in purchasing homes and fixing them up and either reselling them or holding them as rental properties. If you don’t want to or can’t make the repairs or renovations that the home needs, you should look into selling to a home buying company here in the Reno area. Selling a house that needs repairs or renovations to cash home buyer you will save time and money because they don’t charge any commissions or fees, and they can close quickly. The one drawback is you are not going to get what your neighbor sold their house for is perfect condition. The home buying company you work with will factor in all the repair costs, holding costs, and any other costs if they sell, and give a cash offer for the home.
We understand that selling a house in your particular situation can be some times embarrassing, or hard to let go. It doesn’t have to be.
