We bought this run down Westbank property in As Is condition. The house had definitely seen better days. The roof had passed its useful life and when it rained outside it also rained inside. The decking had rotted out and the water had caused damage in the house. The old tenants had gone to jail and left behind a lot of junk in the house. All this is OK because we buy houses in ANY condition. You see, we are cash home buyers who flip properties and hold rentals for a living. A house like this doesn’t scare us and in fact excites us, as it represents a great project to restore the home to its former glory.
The home owner didn’t want to repair this property as it was going to take a lot of time and money and this wasn’t something they wanted to do. They preferred just to sell the house in As Is condition to an investor like us. Since we buy with cash it makes the process so much easier for the owner. Obviously getting finance approved for a property in this condition is very hard and more often than not the bank will refuse the financing (after 45 days of red tape and inspections). Since we don’t need any involvement from the banks it means the owner can have the house sold fast and move on with their lives.
The sale of this house was a real win-win situation. The owner was able to turn this unlivable property into fast cash and we were able to get another project to work on. If you know someone who has a house like this they want to sell tell them about Home Buyer Louisiana. We pride ourselves on being really easy to work with and making the process of selling a problem property really easy. We will only ever do a deal if everyone is smiling at the closing table so go out of our way to make sure you are happy. If we aren’t a good fit as a buyer for your house we will always try and give you some information that will help you understand your options and be able to find a good solution for your situation.
