A home takes a lot of wear and tear and at some point it may be time to say goodbye to the home as you know it. When your home passes the point of “fixing” it may be time to tear it down and build a new home in its place. So what do you do when you need to sell your “teardown” house?
When you’re ready to sell your teardown house, you may find it easier to find a buyer than you think. Because your home needs to be torn down selling it on the market is not going to be your best option, yet you may find that buyers will approach you first. Often times builders will send you postcards or letters asking to buy your home. You may have just tossed them in the past, but now it’s time you call that number. Builders are always on the lookout for teardown properties, especially if it’s in a great neighborhood. If you’re not getting postcards drive around your neighborhood and look for new construction homes in the area. They’re easy to spot because they’ll have the builders sign out in front. Give the builder a call and schedule a consultation. Selling to a builder is great because unlike a traditional buyer, builders can buy your home for cash and close quickly. And the best part… you don’t have to do any work, the buy the home as-is no matter how many problems it may have.
