4 Ways To Sell a Fixer-Upper Property in Durham

Are you ready to sell a run-down property now? We’ll cover 4 ways to sell a fixer-upper property, giving you the know-how, pros, and cons of all of these ways.

Traditional Listing

In general, buyers are looking for homes that are readily available. These are usually found on the traditional estate agent listings. Such advertising focuses heavily on aesthetics and not on the potentials of a house in repair. Furthermore, estate agents have utilised the ease and reach of advertising on the internet. Your house in need of repair will now be competing with 100s of listings, thus not getting the attention it deserves. To add to this, an estate agent will also charge a hefty fee to sell your property. Keep in mind your profit margin will be lowered due to the high costs of the services of an estate agent.

Fix it Up

Television has made it look incredibly easy to ‘flip it’. But the reality is that there are many potential risks involved which require extensive knowledge in construction. If you don’t have the background knowledge and understanding of the potential risks, you are setting yourself up for disaster. Depending on the number of renovations and repairs, you could be paying a lot to bring your property up to standard. These renovations and repairs include foundation, plumbing, cooling and heating systems, and structural issues. When hiring professionals for these areas it’s not as easy as shopping online. It will take time and some trail and error to find a professional that you are happy with. Let’s not forget the red tape and project management involved!

Sell on Your Own 

Time goes by quickly when you are trying to sell a derelict property, especially when your monthly overheads continue to add up. Selling a dilapidated property on your own or via the use of an estate agent can take a long time. You would need to read up no how to best market your fixer-upper to potential buyers. Marketing expenses has to also be taken into account along with understanding what to price it at. Keep in mind you may have to deal with inexperienced buyers, which leads to a confusing and long-winding process for the both of you. Because of this your profits based on the set price will continue to decline. Sadly, many potential buyers end up backing out of such deals. This is especially worrisome when you have plans which rely on the funds from the sale. This can be catastrophic when you take into account the time and money spent along with the missed opportunities of other potential buyers.
