When you are determined to sell your home and move on to a new chapter in your life, the slightest hiccup can make it seem like everything is falling apart. But what if you have a massive, unexpected incident occur during this process, like if a family member is diagnosed with an illness, you have a sudden loss of income, or another similar situation that makes it hard to gather the finances to fund repairs for a “market-ready” home. Fortunately, you have options, and there are times when you do not need to repair a severely damaged home before selling.

How Is This Possible?

Believe us, we know it sounds crazy. It is common knowledge that to sell your home for a good price, it needs to be in good shape. But, in all honesty, when you are in the midst of a tragedy or a life-altering event and need to get the home off of your hands, sometimes you have no choice. The good news is that there are companies willing to buy a home in any condition, regardless of severe damage. This could include structural problems, mold infestations, necessary mechanical repairs, and others. D&R Home Solutions, Inc. is one of those companies, and our goal is to get you out of a draining mortgage as quickly as possible in order to move on or deal with an unpredicted circumstance.

Why Would I Do This?

It would be a lie to say that selling your home this way would get you the most comparable price to a fully repaired, upgraded home. But, if no significant, necessary upgrades are needed as advised by a realtor or home inspector, would you really be able to recoup your investment? Again, factor in that you would be struggling to come up with the cost to cover such repairs on an already tight budget. It is all about the timeline coming into play. With companies like D&R Home Solutions, your home can be purchased in any condition; you would not have to lift a finger in order to prepare it for potential buyers to view — you would not even have to clean it before you leave. The traditional selling process can take months; why waste time when you could unload your home in a matter of days with a decent payoff at the end of it?
