We bought this inherited house that had been vacant for a long time. The house had been gutted and there were lots of belongings left behind. As you probably know houses don’t age well in Louisiana when they are left vacant. Termites had moved in and were causing damage (And they weren’t paying rent). The windows had been smashed by kids in the neighborhood. The owners had kept the house boarded up tightly as obviously there is liability exposure if some of those kids were to get in the house and hurt themselves. The house pretty much needed everything done to it and would require a couple of dumpsters of trash removal before we could even see everything in the house.
While the house is obviously very far from being ready for a homeowner to purchase it, we are ok with buying houses like this. We buy houses in ANY condition as we have the network of rehabbers to be able to flip these type of houses. We buy in As Is condition which makes it really easy for people to sell a house like this. The key to being able to buy problem properties like this is that we are cash home buyers, so don’t need the banks to approve financing and do bank inspections and appraisals. The other benefit of working with a cash buyer is that you can sell your house fast as there isn’t a lot of red tape to get through. We do close with title attorneys but they can normally clear the title in 1 to 2 weeks so you can get paid quickly.
If you have a house like this that needs a lot of repairs then reach out to us to see if we would be a good buyer for your property. We are always happy to give advice so even if we don’t end up being your buyer we will make sure you feel more empowered by knowing more house selling solutions.
