I own a home which is in a not so nice part of town. It's been empty for a few years and at this point I just want to get rid of it. Where do I?

start? House is a 3/1. Needs a roof. Do you recommend selling as-is?

First of all, have you had dit on the market with a REALTOR or FSBO? What have you done to try to sell it? Is the Yard maintained or overgrown? DO you want to put some money in it to try to sell it? I

You asked this question almost 5 months ago. You were given some good suggestions. I'm curious, have you had any success? Did you call a Realtor?

Trade it!!! Trades are not complicated, they just take a little extra work. But here is the magic formula:

House + Cash = land

The lazy way of finding a buyer is to advertise have an investment property will trade for vacant land, or lot. I have done many myself and financed many, many more trades for clients.

Questions to ask yourself. How does it compare to other homes like it in the area?
What price will I get as is vs fixing it? Are the repairs worth it?

Many questions:
Do you owe anything or a lot on it?
Is it worth anything?
Have you talked to a Realtor about it?
Why haven't you rented it out?
Is it habitable?
How about donating it to a church?
Do you need the money?
Do you owe property taxes on it?
Are there any liens on it?

Probably the first step would be to talk to a Realtor.

Good luck and may God bless

You don't say if it's been on the market? If it is on the market, talk to the agent about continuing to lower the price. If it hasn't been on the market, get a few agents opinions of whether it will be better to try and fix a few things before listing it. The better the condition, the more likely that more buyers can qualify for a home loan on it. You need to have professionals come and see if there is damage from a leaky roof to determine whether it is worthwhile to repair. Start by getting some realtors to view it and they will give you some advice about inspectors so that an evaluation can be made. Best, Terry Bell, Realtor, Santa Rosa, CA
