If you have made the wise decision to sell your home to a home buying company, congratulations! You are getting a no-hassle home-selling experience that will most likely be over in a couple of weeks or less. In the meantime, here are some of the things you need to do to get your home ready to sell.
The first thing you absolutely must do is NOT make repairs! You might feel strange selling your home in a stake of disrepair, but you definitely shouldn’t lift a finger on fixing up your home. Whether the repair is minor or massive, don’t do it! If it was hard to believe your home buying company representative when they told you they would purchase your home as-is, it is time to let that fact sink in before you make the mistake of paying big money on repairs!
The second thing you should do to get ready to sell your home to a home buying company is to NOT do any remodels or upgrades. We get it–your home has to have all the bells and whistles for a conventional sale, but that’s not how it works in the home buying company world. What does that mean? It means that your orange shag carpet, pea-green linoleum, and laminate countertops can stay right where they are! No need to spend thousands of dollars having them replaced.
The final thing you really need to do to get your home ready is to NOT clean! Maybe you already went out and got enough sponges, scrubbers, and chemicals to clean an entire hospital, but take them back! You certainly aren’t going to need them! When you sell your home to a home buying company you don’t even have to lift a finger or break a single nail cleaning.
Hopefully, you understand by now that you don’t have to do a thing to get your home ready to sell to a home buying company. No cleaning, no remodeling, no upgrades, and no repairs. Instead, you get to spend your time and money getting ready for whatever new adventure is coming next!
