We bought this house a few months ago. The owners hadn’t looked after it well and had some financial issues and needed to sell the house fast. We actually closed on the house in 7 days and allowed the owners to stay there an extra 30 days as they needed the money and time to move. We bought the house in As Is condition and agreed that they could leave behind the stuff they didn’t want and that they didn’t have to clean. When we got the keys there was a fair amount to clean up. They had a dog and they had chewed a lot of wood in the house and tore up the backyard. We fixed the wood and laid new sod in the backyard. The house needed a full paint job and while we were able to save the flooring although it needed a thorough cleaning.
The owners smoked in the house and the smell was very strong. Usually painting will get rid of the smell but in this case it wasn’t enough. We had to get an ozone machine to clear the air over a couple of days. It took us about 6 weeks to get the house ready and we are really pleased with the results. Within 2 weeks of listing the house for rent we found a really nice family to move in and enjoy the house. We love win-win-win deals like this. The sellers were really happy to be able to sell the house so fast and not have to move straight away, we were really happy to have a new rental in our portfolio and our renters are really happy to have a great place to live.
