What Are My Options

Do you have a home that you would like to sell, but it needs extensive repairs, is outdated, unsafe, or has substantial structural defects? This can be a daunting task leaving the homeowner feeling overwhelmed, not knowing where to start or what is the best way to sell the home.

In this article, we will talk about your three options and how to choose the one that is best for you based upon your financial resources, skill set, and time frame.

Time to do Some Homework

Before you begin to explore the three options, you have a little homework to do first. These include identifying what repairs need to be done, creating a rough estimate of how much it will cost, and calculating the amount of time it will take contractors to complete the work. If you do not have the ability or time to do this first step, you can hire a home inspector to inspect your home. The inspector will provide you with a detailed list of deficient items and recommended upgrades. Most inspectors can also provide you with a cost estimate and time frame to complete the repairs or refer you to someone who can. It is extremely important that you spend the time on this first step and be as realistic as possible. After you feel confident with your budget and time estimates, we recommend you add at least two weeks to the time frame and an additional 10% to the cost. There are always problems, delays, and additional expense — always.

Now that you have completed your homework and have the information to make an informed decision, let’s look at your options:
