Sell Your Hillsboro Home Fast: Skip Repairs, Get Cash!

If you’ve fallen behind in your mortgage payment and may be facing foreclosure or you’re looking at a divorce and know you’re going to have to get sell your home fast in order to avoid tax implications, then you’re probably not only facing the stress of the financial situation that you are dealing with, but you’re also looking around your house and thinking of all of the things that you should repair in order to get the house prepared for a buyer.

It might be tempting to go over to Fleming Lumber, load up on some supplies, and get to work, whether or not you actually know what you’re doing. If people can build primitive homes out of dirt, then you probably think you can watch a few YouTube videos and channel your inner Ty Pennington.

Unfortunately, the reality is that almost every home improvement project you can undertake will lose you money. There are really only two things that you can do that will be worth the time, money, and effort to improve the appearance of your home:

  1. Paint the interior: This is about the only true home renovation project that returns over 100%, but only if you use a neutral shade throughout the house. You may think that bright fuschia and highlighter yellow are great colors, but most buyers do not.
  2. Clean the place thoroughly: You’d be amazed at how much a first impression can help raise the mental value of a house in a buyer’s eyes. Make the place spic and span. Get rid of all of the clutter. If you have to donate things, check out the Hillsboro resource page for charities you can contact.

Don’t Waste Time and Money on Repairs: Sell Your Hillsboro Home As-Is

The truth is that we, like many cash buyers of Hillsboro homes, would prefer to purchase a property as is.

Why is that?

There are a couple of reasons:

  • We know what subsequent buyers are going to look for in a house: We’ve bought 36 properties and sold 29 of them. We have a good idea of what sorts of renovations appeal to buyers and what sorts do not.
  • We can control the quality: You may be very handy, but unless you’re a professional carpenter or contractor, there’s a chance that we’re going to have to go back and redo all of the work that you did. It won’t raise the price that we pay you, and you’ll be out of pocket for the supplies that you purchased doing the repairs.
  • We have better relationships with contractors, so we can get a better price: If you call a random contractor, you’re probably not going to get their best and lowest price to do the work. We have relationships with them, and they know that we will keep going back to them if they give us good prices, so we get better prices. Think about how it works at the car dealer. You’ve never seen the car salesman and you’re never going to see him again. Why is he going to give you the rock bottom price? He’s not. It’s the same with contractors. Unless you already have the relationship built with them, you’re going to get the higher prices quoted to you, and you’re not going to be their priority, which leads to…
  • It is going to take time that you may not have: Remember, you want to sell your Hillsboro home fast. If you’re waiting around for the weekend to tackle all of these renovation and repair projects, that’s time that is burning. We already know that the time between missing a mortgage payment and being foreclosed on in Texas can be as short as five months. Every day counts. If you can sell your house as-is in 7 days, would you want them to wait around while you do your repair projects and potentially lose them as a buyer because they’ve found another property in the meantime?
