Tips for Selling A Damaged Home in South Jersey

Thinking of selling a damaged home in South Jersey, but worried about the process? Have no fear! Well, first of all, make sure you have insurance on your home, in case there is further damage, or an injury involved. Then, give us a call! Property Buyer Connect buys homes in South Jersey that have been damaged, partially burnt, you name it. A damaged home may turn off most retail buyers, or buyers with agents, but investors are usually up for the challenge. Here are some tips when selling your damaged South Jersey home. 

Sell A Damaged Home “As-Is”

As-is is a term used by the real estate community to advertise a property that is sold just the way it is. You do not wish to make any repairs and will not reply to any inspections. This leaves it up to the buyer to completely do their own due diligence. It is buyer-beware. This takes the pressure off you. 

Disclose As Much As Possible 

In New Jersey / South Jersey, you are legally obligated to disclose what you know is wrong with your home to a potential buyer. Also, being upfront with the buyer creates a good relationship to build from. The buyer will appreciate knowing everything they need to take care of and can adjust their price and expectations accordingly. 

Clean As Best You Can

Sure, you may have a ceiling cave-in from a roof leak, but that doesn’t mean that the rest of your house must be messy! The less stuff that is in a home, the better it looks generally. Also, any stuff you leave there will need to be removed by someone that needs to get paid. So less stuff = less expense for the buyer which means more money in your pocket. Anything that you can do to limit the damage done to your property is helpful. 

Don’t Put A Damaged Home “On The Market” Yourself

You are just asking for liability and headaches by trying to advertise the property yourself and find a seller. There are plenty of homes in South Jersey for people to choose from, and you really have to do some convincing to someone to buy a damaged home. Leave it to the pros.
