Many people in Hawaii wonder how to sell their fixer-upper houses. Here in Oahu (Honolulu County), there is a wide variety of houses from mega-mansions to major fixer-uppers. At one end of the street, you can have a beautifully renovated home just waiting to grace the cover of a magazine. On the other is a house showing years of termite damage, ground settling and a cracked foundation, peeling paint, and a leaky roof. Anyone who has lived here knows that both exist side by side.
When it comes time to sell, there’s no question that a house with major problems — or even moderate problems — will likely be more difficult to sell than a renovated home that passes inspection with flying colors. Even if you lower the price, you still eliminate buyers getting certain loan types if the house has big problems, ex. electric, plumbing, settling, and/or roof issues.
And eliminating potential buyers likely means more time on the market until you sell. What can you do to avoid getting stuck with your fixer-upper?
How to Sell Your Fixer Upper House
If your fixer-upper house is causing you trouble, if you can no longer afford the repairs or maintenance, or if you need to sell and get some cash, then you need to understand your options.
And the best option to sell your fixer-upper house is by selling your house for CASH.
Cash buyers don’t have to pass any bank appraisal requirements, jump through hoops or deal with any red tape. A cash buyer can buy your house quickly — sometimes in 10 days or less.
The first step is to figure out how much you need from the sale. The next step is to contact a cash buyer — LIKE US.
