What kind of houses do we buy?
The first question in every home seller’s mind is “Can I sell my house? Who would want to buy it?”. Each home has its own list of unique problems and special additions to make it a one of a kind.
With the consumers market being primarily mass-produced copies of the same prototype over and over; it is an understandable worry that your home may not appeal to a wide variety of buyers in the local area.
Too bad it is not cheaper to ship an entire house across the country, that would help expand your potential market dramatically. Nonetheless, knowing who your idea buyer can help you find them and move on with your life that much faster.
So, we are going to talk about each of the different types of houses and properties we are more than willing to happily purchase, and which situations may be better suited for sale to someone else, but do not worry, we will point you in the right direction for that scenario as well. These will be general concepts of many common housing situations and will surely vary to some degree in every house in the world. That is okay, we are here to help!
Houses in need of Repair Around Louisville KY
Does your home need some repairs? Or maybe a lot more than some repairs? The kind of property that might be better off tearing down and rebuilding rather than attempting to repair the current structure of the house. That is perfect! We love to buy houses in need of repair, minor or major.
The largest portion of homes we purchase are those in need of more repairs than the current homeowner can afford to make on the property, or more than he/she is willing to. To help with this common problem, we recommend no repairing your property whatsoever.
The troubles of repairing a house before selling can obviously be an overwhelming amount of stress and financial strain. This is not to mention the fact of all the time it takes to properly repairs many projects that are likely to be out of the scope of your ‘Average Joe’. So, let us look at the flip side.
Let us put into consideration the concept of just not repairing the property whatsoever. No contractors to deal with on a daily or weekly basis. No personal elbow grease, withering down upon the mind’s patience minute after minute. And with the utmost importance, no money to be shoveled into a dying investment.
This is all a very real concept that happens more than one might think. Selling a home without committing to any repairs at all and selling it just how it is right now, in its present condition is called selling a property AS-IS; Or selling a property exactly as it is.
No renovations, no repairs, no negotiations under the basis of lack of repairs made to the property. It is literally the simplest and easiest way to do it. The trick is just to know who to sell a house as-is to. The run of the mill retail home buyer is not going to have the money make repairs and will not be likely to qualify for a loan from a banking institution for a property in need of excess repairs.
This is perfectly where we come in with open arms and a smile. We have the funds to buy your house in any condition and make all the repairs necessary, so you do not have to. The present funds available means no banks to deal with and no real estate agents to tack on extra fees.
All this turns into a quick and easy process to sell your home fast with no money out of pocket from you. So do not stress about what condition your home is in. Do not live in a rundown house that has crashed down from a ‘home’ to a working self-prison of shame and worry. You have found a potential buyer right here and now. We want to help you.
Housing with debt still owed on it
Chances are that your mortgage is most likely the largest single recurring bill on your checkbook every month. When life takes a turn for the worse, the mortgage can become a stressful part of your life that may have once needed to be put to the side to take care of more important things, like family issues.
The solution to these problems are often simple across the nation. A few maxed-out credit cards followed by a second or even third mortgage. Sooner or later, it is a weekly juggling act just to make ends meet with no end in sight. Working to live has become your life and stress has become your native language.
For sure debt on a home can pile up quick and make your entire life a restless grind to pay bills, all the while surviving on the cheapest lifestyle manageable. Majority of people can push through eating ramen noodles three times a day and never leaving the house except for work for a few weeks; but these things stack on to each other over time.
At what point is this interest growing debt crushing you to the point that the only options are bankruptcy or selling the house? If bankruptcy becomes the route walked, finding another place to live could possibly become another struggle because of the lack of funds and absolutely destroyed credit.
Selling the property seems to be the better answer but the amount owed on the property is more than anyone is going to be willing to pay on a property in this present condition. That is where you are wrong. We love helping people, its why we are in this business.
Often, we can purchase your home, get you out of any and all debt associated with the property, and give your enough cash to make sure you are able to move into another place to live. The end results equal your stress and debt causing it are completely relieved. No bankruptcy must be filled.
Your life can pick up where it left off before it was twisted into stress, tension, and debt. You deserve the right to less stress. You deserve the right to live your life! Not something that is feasible with euphoric-less crushing debt guiding every move to a funnel of depression and homelessness. So Yes, we can buy your house with debt attached and knowing we are changing your life for the better makes it a win-win for us and you!
Empty Lots or Unused Land
We buy houses Louisville KY and you do not have a house, just some blank land in any random location. That is okay. We are happy to buy lots and lands that seem to have no value to you. As the property sits there unused year after year, you still must pay property taxes on it and you have no use for it.
Throw that wasteland money-pit away, or rather sell it to us. The grass does not have to cut for us. Landscaping is not an issue and the neighboring areas are not in the least concerning for us. We will buy it in any random condition and in any location.
Does it have a civilized village of rabbit raccoons that kill humans and pets on site? Not a problem we can not handle. We will still be happy to buy it. If you think there is some situation worse than that, that could deter us from being willing to purchase your property? We invite you to challenge us with such an obstacle. It is called an obstacle here on purpose because obstacles are meant to be overcome and will be conquered.
Retail Value Homes
A retail value home is a house that is well established and for the general market. These homes are commonly in perfect condition. All the appliances are updated in the last few years. Flooring and walls are without stains or imperfections in any way.
The roof has been replaced in the last ten years or less. Water heaters, furnace, and central air units are hooked up and have been replaced in the last five years. These kinds of homes are all around in perfect condition and need absolutely no repairs prior to a buyer moving in.
The price of these homes should reflect the pristine condition and upkeep of the property. No liens or debt is associated to the house or property whatsoever. Marketing presence is highly competitive among retail buyers in the market.
Retail value homes are typically in nice neighborhoods with wonderful access to the nicest schools and easily assessable to the marketplaces of the city or at least close enough to a major interstate to make any commute to the nearest attraction of the corresponding genre within a few minutes drive.
Yes, the retail value homes for sale are the ‘cream of the crop’. These are the homes that everyone wants and are always priced well above what the home would be worth without even one of these characteristics.
For all those reasons, the owner and seller of such a perfect home does not need our help. Flocks of motivated buyers will flood the streets and consume your communication with screams of pleads to please sell your home to them and not the next guy.
We are in the business of helping people, not buying homes from those who do not need our help. Since our business does not include purchasing homes for ourselves to live in, there is no reason to purchase a retail value home. This is very unfortunate because the homes in this category are absolutely stunning to attend a viewing for and are truly are treasure for each person that passes by at any given moment.
To the retail value home sellers, we wish you the best of luck on getting the maximum sell value for your home and we are happy that things are going so well for you. If you are choosing to downsize for whatever reason and which to take your remaining revenue to purchase addition properties to create an income producing stream of income, we can help with that. There is always something we can help with because that is all we do, and we would not have it any other way.
So, you have a home that is not really a home but just some house you happen to own for some reason or another. It is a house that has sat around for years without being touched, looked at, or even thought about. These abandoned houses still have owners, but the owners do not deal with it very often.
Going years at a time without such a property even so much as coming up in conversation can leave the property at hand with a lot of unexpected and unknown issues. Normally the house is in desperate need of repairs after the years of neglect. Sometimes the water lines may freeze and bust with the only notification being the increased water bill from mass amounts of leaking water.
Abandoned homes still must have the property taxes paid on them every year. The bills associated with the property comes in waves whenever it is finally visited. The longer the timeframe of being abandoned the more likely the condition is to be dramatically different and higher influx of cost to repair to a livable standard for even the most flexible of tenants. Sooner or later the house must go. The money pit cannot sit around forever without great financial consequences.
This is where we come in. We are happy to purchase your abandoned home no matter how long it has been since it was last seen or how bad the condition is. Throughout our experiences, we have seen what was described as a perfect home be a complete surprise to the owner on site.
An unknown leak in the roof has caused the entire interior of the house to be rotten and molded. Ridden with mice, termites, and other pests. Obstacles that come with abandoned houses are not match for our innovative team of problem-solving warriors. No matter how recently or how long ago the home has been abandoned to become a random house, we are happy to help rid you of this parasite on your life.
I have never met someone who was ecstatically excited about inheriting a home. Usually inheriting a property means that someone close to you has passed away. That close family member or friend can never be replaced, and a house will not fill the void.
Most of the time an inherited home as sentimental value and can be painful to see in person after a love one’s passing. For all these reasons I and saddened by each person I come in contact with owning a recently inherited home. Our first question is always “How are you doing?”.
The house at hand can wait until after we make sure that you are in a well enough mental state to make a conscious decision on what you would like to do with the home. Anyone who hears that you recently inherited a home and does not have a concern for your wellbeing above all else does not deserve to have a conversation with and is not needed in your life.
Just wanted to make sure you, the reader, is aware of our standards and morals. With all that being said, the pain with having an inherited property is one that is wanted to be relieved immediately. We will purchase the home as fast as you would like.
You will be given has much time as you need to get any belongings desired out of the household and we will dispose of anything you do not want to take. The cleanup, repairs, and maintenance are all on us. It is the least we can do in a troubling time like this. I am sorry for your loss and I hope we can help in any way we can.
Tenants or Squatters
Houses are made for a singular purpose, to live in. Maybe that is the homeowner, a tenant, or a squatter; Someone usually lives in the property. Whoever decides to live in the home at hand, we have a solution for. Homeowners being the easiest because they are very aware and deciding to move out of the home. Any case can be solved with swift action that can benefit most or all parties involved. We prefer and strive to come with a solution that is a ‘win’ for all parties involved if at all possible. As you will hear again and again, we are in the business of helping people. Buying houses is just how we found out to do that.
Tenants are commonly under contract within the home and pay rent on a monthly basis. A well-mannered tenant is a bonus in most cases, not a problem. The tenant can usually stay right where they are and should be disturbed as little as possible. These law-abiding citizens deserve our gratitude as much as you, the seller, does. Anything less is absolutely unacceptable. A conversation with the tenant is a common practice if it is okay with them. Being the person(s) that have been living in the household, they have an insight to the condition of the property that the owner and seller is unlikely to be able to match. Having a tenant living in the house you want to sell is not a problem at all. We are still happy to buy your home, just like any other.
Squatters are a more complicated situation. Having a squatter living in your home or on your property can be frustrating and make the situation seem to have no solution. Often, squatters are homeless individuals or groups with little information given. The squatter(s) may be confrontational and skittish to conversation with anyone at the house at hand, especially you the seller and the police. Squatters often destroy the property and have a disregard for the value or condition of the home. My upbringing has taught me to try the best solution for the squatters, yourself, and myself first. If the squatter is willing to talk, we can offer him/her a variety of solutions to help them out of their situation. A squatter did end up there because he/she just wanted to live rent free and decided to just find the find uninhabited house and move in. No, usually it is a much more complex scenario involving immense hardship and a terrible streak of luck paired with a few poor life decisions. We will attempt to help them if possible and willing conversation can ensue. Although these situations can often lead to other solutions, we are aware of the necessary steps to have your property become squatter free. Squatters are just one more obstacle for us. Not a reason to not buy your home. We can take care of any problems caused by unwanted ‘guests’ and still purchase your house in no time.
With tenant or squatters, we are still happy to buy your home. We will take every unique situation into careful consideration to guarantee an optimal solution. In a nutshell, yes, we buy houses with tenants. Yes, we buy houses with a squatter or squatters. Yes, we want to buy your home, and yes, we are happy to make sure the situation turns out as best as possible for all parties involved.
