5 Tips For Selling A Florida Rundown Property

Are you feeling stuck with an old and rundown house? At Sunshine State Buyers, we understand how owning a damaged or out-dated property can be stressful, expensive, and, of course, incredibly frustrating.

That’s why we want to help you evaluate your selling options so you can find out which selling method will be the right decision for you and your family.

Determine Which Repairs Are The Most Cost-Effective

Remember, you don’t have to fix absolutely everything to sell your run-down house in Miami. You might be surprised just how much of an impact a few aesthetic repairs can make. A fresh coat of paint can make a considerable difference!

NOTE: You will still be required to disclose everything that is wrong with the property. However, you will generate more interest from potential buyers by improving the initial look of the home.

Highlight The Property’s Potential

Your property’s potential is what will motivate buyers to make you an offer. That’s why it’s so important to help buyers obtain a real understanding of the buildings potential.

Is the view fantastic? Does the house have a spacious (albeit overgrown) backyard? Is there a loft space that could be renovated?

You can even have designs made up to help inspire potential buyers. Try to take the focus off the current condition the property is in and help people invision what could be a worthwhile investment.

List Your House AS-IS

If there is too much work to do or you don’t want to spend the time and money fixing it up, you can always list the house AS-IS. Though it’s important to remember that you might not find a buyer on the open market that quickly.

Typically anyone searching the MLS for a new home is looking for a move-in ready home – not an extensive year-long renovation project. If you do decide to list, make sure you market your home to the right audience. At Sunshine State Buyers, we can help you determine who this would be.

Utilize Staging & Professional Photography

When your house is old and run-down, your listing photos probably won’t be much to look at. A thorough cleaning, the use of some staged items, and the assistance of a professional photographer can make even the most run-down space seem more appealing.

A good rule of thumb is to take one photo of each room, focus on the attractive aspects of the home and list the issues that need fixing in the description. Once you’ve got people through the door, you can use this opportunity to highlight what the house could be after renovating.

Work With A Direct Buyer

A professional home buyer will be able to buy your house AS-IS. Not all buyers are the same, but when you work with a company like Sunshine State Buyers, you will be able to sell fast without any commissions, or repairs.

We can fix up the property (often for a more cost-effective price than you would be able to alone), allowing us to make you an excellent offer for your unwanted house in Miami.
