How to Get Your Home Ready to Sell to a Home Buying Company

Selling your home can be a major ordeal. It takes both time and money to get things ready to sell, and a concerted effort is generally required to find a buyer. However, there are ways to greatly simplify the process. The most effective way is to sell your home to a home buying company. If you think that might be the right fit for you, here’s what you will need to do to get your home ready to sell.


Conventional sales mean lots of repairs. In fact, on average, homeowners have to take care of 21 repairs before selling their homes. If you know about damage to your home and fail to disclose it you can be in serious legal trouble. However, disclosing damages tends to scare typical buyers away, especially if they are significant. Besides, anything in disrepair is bound to come up at the buyer’s home inspection and will need to be addressed anyway. On the other hand, home buying companies will purchase your home as-is. This means that you don’t have to lift a finger or spend a penny on repairs. 


If your home has gone a while without a facelift, you will likely need to do a few updates before selling. Today’s buyers tend to want all of the modern upgrades, from stone countertops to hardwood floors. Unfortunately, updates spell MONEY! If you don’t have the cash on hand to fix things up to the finicky tastes of prospective buyers, you could be going up a creek without a paddle. Thankfully, home buying companies don’t care a whistle about all the modern updates. They will purchase your home exactly as it is, laminate countertops and shag carpet included!


Of course, all sales require a perfectly clean home at the very least, right? Actually, home buying companies don’t even require that much. They won’t bat an eye at dust, dirt, and grime. Even mold, fire damage, clutter, and debris aren’t a problem for these stoic companies. So save your scrubber and broom for your next house–they won’t be needed now!

It’s the goal of the home buying company to make your sale and move as easy as possible on you. That is why you have to do absolutely nothing to get your home ready to sell to one. No repairs, no updates, not even any cleaning. So sit back, relax, and let us take care of all the work for you!
