Real Estate Agents Sell Ugly Houses, Too!

 So, you’ve decided you want to sell your house.  You know it qualifies as one of those “ugly houses,” but you don’t want to do any work to your home.  You especially don’t want to do major repairs or updates like replacing all the windows with broken seals.

You may think that means real estate agents will not want to list your home for sale.  Think again. Brooklyn real estate agents sell ugly houses, too!

Here’s what you should expect if you have an ugly house that you don’t want to make improvements to:

  • A lower price:  Maybe you don’t have the time, energy, money or know how to make improvements to your home.  That doesn’t mean it won’t sell, it just means the price has to be low enough to convince a buyer that it’s worth the time and money they’ll have to spend to get it into shape.  An experienced Brooklyn real estate agent can do the necessary research to come up with the right price to get your home sold.
  • A smaller number of potential buyers:  In today’s market, most homebuyers are looking for that perfect home.  The one they can move in to without doing any work.  Since your home doesn’t fit that description, you’ll lose those homebuyers.   Typically, homes like this will sell to Brooklyn  real estate investors or buyers who enjoy fixing up houses.
  • A longer time on the market:  Because of the smaller number of potential buyers, it may take a bit longer to sell your home.  Because of the lower price, you’ll probably have several lookers, but getting someone to purchase it will most likely take longer than normal.

Don’t say you’re going to sell your house someday, when you get all the repairs and upgrades completed, if you know in your heart that isn’t reality.  Sometimes it’s worth taking a lower price and moving on.

Whether your home is gorgeous, ugly or somewhere in between, I can help you get it sold.  Give me  a call today at (718) 253-9600 ext .206 or email me at charles@brooklynrealestatesales.com for more information.
