How to Sell an Ugly House In Less than a Month

“How do I sell my house?” is a fairly common question among homeowners who are looking to, either, get money for emergency purposes or for those who want to move to another area. But, perhaps a more common question is, “How do I sell an ugly house?”.


Let’s face it. Majority of the houses that you find listed on the MLS have been spruced up and repair to look nothing like they once did.


That leaves a very little market for an ugly house to be had.


But, make no mistake, you can still sell your house. Just don’t expect to get a lot of money out of it. The key here is to be as realistic as possible. However, that doesn’t mean that you won’t be getting a sizable amount out of your property, because you still can, and you can still sell your house in a few weeks time if you do it right.


For starters, you’ll want to work on cleaning and decluttering as much as possible. You can do this for little to no money. Curb appeal can also be improved for little cost.


Also, don’t even bother wasting your money on getting your house inspected. It just isn’t worth it. At least, on your part. Let the burden of inspecting and checking for problems fall onto the prospective buyers. This may eat at your selling price, but you won’t be recouping any of your inspection costs anyway. In fact, your selling price might go even lower after an inspection, because, in most states, you’ll be required to disclose every defect your house has that you are aware of. But, if you’re not aware of it, then there’s no harm done.


This isn’t to say that you should cover up anything or lie. You should still let buyers know what they’re getting themselves into.


It’s just that, given how little money that you’re already probably going to get from your ugly New Jersey house, you’re better off making having all the appropriate inspections done the responsibility of the buyer.


If you do everything right and legally and find a way to get it in sight of as many people as possible, you should be able to sell your ugly house in New Jersey in less than a month with little to no money spent on it.


These days, there are plenty of homeowners and bargain seekers who are willing to invest in an ugly house, either to live on them or to flip them for profit.

How Do I Sell an Ugly House Even Faster?

Listing is and will always be the traditional way to sell any home, ugly or not.


If you’re looking for something quicker, easier, and smoother, you can look for a cash buyer or real estate investor that buy houses for cash as-is.


As cash buyers, We buy houses NJ in any condition. You don’t have to worry anymore about looking for a buyer. We’ll buy your property off of you outright with minimal fuss or hassle involved.


By working with a cash buyer, you don’t need to worry about anything else. No more staging costs, real estate fees, and other financial setbacks. All you need to do is tell a cash buyer that your property is up for sale, and if you like what they’re offering for it, you can accept it and just wait for a couple of weeks for the deal to close.


Perhaps the best part about working with a cash buyer is that you can set the settlement date at a time most convenient to you, giving you the freedom to move on from your ugly house at your own pace.

Can't say enough about Ken and his team. This was the most seamless sale I made. I didn't have to deal with all the... nonsense that comes with selling your home. They bought my house as is, I didn't have to declutter and pay a broker commission. All in all great experience, will do business more

Selling my property too Ken was the best thing I did. Although I was skeptical at first I soon found out how... professional he was. Even though my closing contract was not standard because of the pendemic situation. He followed through on time with all the contract terms as promised. Thank you Ken for your professionalism.Alfredo Gread more

Ken was referred to us by someone who had sold their home thru Ken last year. From the first meeting to the last... transaction, Ken and his team were professional, efficient, easy to work with, and above all.... caring. Each seller's situation is different, and Ken truly understands that. We were treated with respect each time.Since we were in a time crunch situation, selling our home with a cash offer from Ken was the best decision we could have made. We were perfectly okay with getting slightly less money for our home as compared to selling it via an agent. But if you consider the money saved on agent commissions (both buyers and sellers), closing costs, repair costs, attorney fees, and most important of all... time and headache, you can't beat the option to sell your home with a guaranteed cash offer from a reputable buyer like Ken.My wife and I were very pleased with our experience with Ken. If you are in the market to sell your home fast for a cash offer, I highly recommend giving Ken a call!Best of luck!Vishread more

Amazing experience! Ken was upfront, quick and got the deal done in no time. Having done a number of real estate... transactions this was by far the easiest and smoothest. I would unconditionally recommend him to anyone looking for an easy, quick and fair more

Ken is a very professional individual from start to finish. As promised, he gave me a fair deal on my one of my... properties that was in rough shape. He was knowledgeable and responsive to my requests and as promised we didn't need to waste time with inspections and appraisals and we closed quickly. He made it painless as possible by having his crew handle the clean up. This was truly a quick and easy process but a professional individual. Thanks Ken!read more
