Tips to Sell a New Jersey House That Needs Work

Selling a house isn’t easy, especially if it’s not in tip-top shape. But, that also doesn’t mean that it’s impossible to sell it. If you find yourself in a financial pinch and can’t afford to repair or upgrade your house but need the money, then don’t worry. We can help you with that.

It’s not unusual for people to put off selling a property just because they can’t afford to have it fixed. While understandable, this is also a counterintuitive decision. A house that you don’t live in and doesn’t earn you money is a financial liability.

The truth is, it is possible to sell your house for a fair price, even if it’s not exactly in good condition. Of course, you can’t exactly sell it like you would a normal house, but the important bit is that you can.

Using these tips below, you can finally know the answer to your question, “how to sell my house fast New Jersey” and free yourself from the financial burden and stress of owning a property that’s not bringing you any money.

Try to Fix Something

You may not be able to fix everything, but at least try to fix something. Even a fresh coat of paint can go a long way in making your run-down property look better. Curb appeal is also something that you can do for cheap if you know what you’re doing since you can do it yourself. Other cheap things you can do to spruce up your place is patching up holes and cleaning up the carpets so they don’t look as old as they should be.

Find a Cash Buyer

This is perhaps the easiest way to sell your house as it is without doing any work and the best part is that it’s not that hard to find potential investors and buyers willing to buy your house to sell for profit down the line.

We buy houses cash NJ here at Cash Buyer New Jersey so you don’t have to worry about anything other than accepting our fairly priced offer.

Sell the Positives

Your house may not be the best-looking property on the market, but it’s not exactly the worst either. Find something appealing about your house and use it to make it more attractive. Is your property located near a great school? Maybe it’s near big companies who are always hiring? Does the house only need minor repairs?

By focusing on what’s good about your house, you can make it more attractive to buyers. But, be careful, and don’t lie. Lying won’t get you anywhere but trouble when it comes to selling a house.

Don’t Lie

Speaking of not lying, you should be 100% honest when talking to an interested buyer. Tell them what’s wrong with the house. If you can, tell them how to fix it or the possible repair costs.

By letting the buyer know everything there is to know, the two of you can come to an agreement about the price. Not to mention it helps you avoid a potential lawsuit in case the buyer finds out that you lied about something.

Don’t be Afraid to Advertise

You may not have as much money, but you can always advertise and call for offers. Let as many people as possible know that you’re selling your house and are willing to listen to any potential offer.

You can even pit multiple investors against each other this way and drive up the value of your home so you can squeeze a bit more money out of it.

Stage Your House

No, we’re not talking about hiring professional stages. That’s probably already out of the question. What’s not, though, is making your house look as appealing as possible.

Is a buyer coming? Clean up and make the house look good. If you’re creative enough, you can use an interior design software to show the buyer how good your house can look like with a bit of work.

Of course, if you want to save yourself the trouble, we buy houses cash NJ here at Cash Buyer New Jersey without asking you to make any repairs – we buy it as it is and let you decide on the closing date.

Ken from Cash Buyer NJ was a pleasure to deal with. I filled in and sent the online questionnaire, Ken called me ten... minutes later, we made an appointment and two hours later he was at my house. Ken did his due diligence and in two days we agreed on the price. The sale was as is so I only moved what I wanted and left the rest. The closing was completed on time. Ken is honest, and a gentleman who you can take at his word. The whole deal couldn't have gone smoother!read more

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 again.read 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 transaction.read 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
