Prepping your home for sale is an investment of time, energy and (of course) money. These may be resources that you do not have easily at your disposal, for any number of reasons. Did you know, though, that you don’t necessarily have to prepare your home at all, in order to sell it?
What does it mean?
Selling your home “as-is” means exactly what it sounds like—your home is “delivered” with no repairs, renovations, replacements, or any boost of façade. The buyer uses the property as an investment, meaning they are willing to carry out any necessary repairs and construction themselves. This allows freedom on their part to create the space they need for the purposes they have in mind, and allows you to exit your home without the financial stresses of fixing everything pre-sale (or even pre-viewing!)
Why would that be necessary?
So why not go through the normal process of repairing and preparing your home for viewing? Sometimes, you simply don’t have the means or the time. Financial struggles can back a home seller into a corner, requiring fast transactions for the best possible outcome. Damages to your home can make selling it incredibly difficult, as average buyers usually seek homes that do not require major fixes, or homes that they know are at risk of those damages occurring again in the future (such as from fire or flooding or environmental factors). If your property has any of these issues, from financial restraints to major damages, to simple time crunches, selling your home as it stands provides an easy avenue out of the stressful and drawn out processes of real estate.
