I’m here at a property we closed on last Friday. It’s a new property, we’re on the West Bank of Jefferson Parish. We’re in Westwego. The seller had reached out to us, it’s actually her grandmother’s house. It took some damage during hurricane Ida, and they were looking to sell it. I will show you around, and you will see that it’s not ready to be sold to a homeowner. It’s dated, and has suffered a lot of damage from Ida. So, they just wanted a cash offer and wanted to sell the house in as is condition. We paid them what they were after, and now, the property is ours.

It actually was full of a lot of belongings, but we cleared it out on the day of closing. The kitchen needs to be redone, the roof came out, there was water all over the floor. It was quite scary and traumatic for them, because the grandmother and her niece were at home when the house got damaged by Ida. The roof in her niece’s bedroom actually came off due to the hurricane.

The grandma has moved in with one of their relatives, so they wanted to sell it, as is for cash. We’ve cleaned up the property, and we will get the roof fixed tomorrow, so it doesn’t get more damaged. Then we’d rehab the property so it’s ready for a new owner to move in.

It’s a win-win for everyone. The seller is happy to sell it as is, for cash, we’re really happy to get a project we can sink our teeth into, the new home owner or potential tenant will love moving into the renovated property.

So, if you have a house you want to sell, and you don’t want to repair. It could be hurricane damage or dated, reach out to us on our website, Homebuyerlouisiana.com or give us a call. We have a lot of information, articles, and contents on there, check them out. Or you could give us a call, we are always happy to speak and tell you what a cash offer might look like.
