We bought this Fire Damaged Property in Baton Rouge

Lots of people ask us if they can sell a fire damaged house. We buy fire damaged houses in Greater New Orleans, Baton Rouge and the North Shore. Just like this fire damaged house that we bought in Baton Rouge. The good thing was that the house was insured so the seller was able to get a check from his insurance and sell the house in as is condition to us for cash.

You can see the video of our founder Aussie Steve showing the house and talking about the situation. You can also read the video transcript below.

“Hey guys, it’s Aussie Steve here from Home Buyer Louisiana. We buy houses in any condition in Louisiana. I’m here at a house we’re purchasing today; I’m literally just about to go to the closing. So, we’re in Baton Rouge. The owner reached out to us. They’ve owned the house for about 20 years. Unfortunately, there was a fire, so quite a lot of damage to the property. It’s really unfortunate for the owner. They were ready to move on and wanted to sell the house. Obviously, it’s in very bad shape, so it has to be sold to an investor like us who’s happy to take on a project like this.

Let me show you around. Fire damage obviously makes it a big renovation. You need to remediate the damage of smoke as well as the fire. So, this is mainly smoke damage here. It’s not really where the actual fire burned, but you can see it’s going to need a lot of work. Very, very unfortunate. I feel really bad for the seller; no one wants this, particularly a house here.

You can see here’s more where the fire actually was. I know, sorry, it’s dark because obviously, no power, but this is where the fire was. The rest of it is mostly smoke damage. So yeah, look, we hate to see things like this. It’s obviously very tragic to lose your home in this way. But you know, when that happens, the best we can do is help you move on. We will buy a house like this; we will bring it back to its former glory. This house is salvageable. Sometimes a fire might mean it needs to be demoed and rebuilt, which we would do too. But this is salvageable, but it’s going to take a lot. We really have to touch everything in this property. But we’re glad to make a cash offer for the seller. They’re going to be able to move on, for new beginnings. So, you know, that’s really all we can achieve after a tragic event like this.

So guys, if you know anyone selling a house, it doesn’t have to be fire-damaged; it doesn’t need to be this bad, but we will buy houses this bad. But we’ll also buy houses that are just rundown, you know, got tenants in place. If your house is beautiful, if your house is ready for a homeowner, then I wouldn’t sell it to us. You want to sell it through a realtor, find a homeowner, someone that’s going to live there and use bank financing. The sale will take a little bit longer, but they’ll pay more; they’ll use bank financing. You’ll need to go through inspections; you need to make sure that all the details are right. But you know, if it’s in that condition, sell it to them. But if you have something that needs work, it’s not ready for that homeowner, it’s going to get beat up during the inspection period, then someone like us is a great cash house buyer. We don’t mind those issues; we’d like to fix them up and have value. So reach out to us; probably the best place is to go to our website, You’ll see lots of information about selling a home in any condition. Speak to one of our team or Arione in our office; we’ll chat to you about your property and learn what the story is. And then we’ll see if we can make an offer that works for you. And if we can’t, that’s totally fine. If we can, we’re glad to help out. Thanks, guys.”
