Should you sell your home as-is or remodel?

Avoid costly repairs by selling your home “as is” today

Selling a home "as is" can provide you with a quick and easy sale, without the hassle of repairs. If you are looking for a quick and easy way to sell your home, consider selling it "as is".

Not only is this a great option for those who want to avoid costly repairs or lengthy renovations, but you’ll also be freed from the burden of

  • Researching and interviewing contractors,

  • Dealing with missed deadlines and price hikes,

  • And investing in expensive repairs that may not even be worth the cost.

Instead, you can choose to put your money towards a new home that fits your needs and lifestyle. So if you're looking for a stress-free way to sell your home, consider selling it "as is".

Difference Between Selling and Repairing:

For most families selling a home as-is is better than repairing it when the house is in bad condition and would need a lot of money to be fixed (and that’s hoping the price quoted is actually the price and doesn’t require “unexpected” expenses,” which it usually does). Selling can let the family move on to start a new life with fewer burdens. It also helps them save up money for things that they may need in the future.

On the other hand, repairing the house can take a lot of time and money as well. Not to mention, it can also be stressful for the family members. If the repair costs are too high, then it might not be worth fixing the house. We’ve seen on average homeowners usually spend 55% MORE than expected for repairs, and those repairs typically take an average of 4 months LONGER than expected.

There is certainly an upside to renovating your home and bringing it to market, as you have an opportunity to sell the house for “more”. However, at the end of the day, it’s important to consider the net gain…

As the cost of labor and materials continue to increase, and the availability of contractors and skilled labor decreases, it takes longer and costs more to renovate than ever before.

It’s also important to consider YOUR time, the cost to hold the house, and whether or not you want to use YOUR time to make all of that happen. It can be very overwhelming.

Depending on the state of your home, and the amount of personal time you have to commit to the project, a large percentage of homeowners would be better served selling their home AS IS versus spending more time and money on repairs.
