I wanted to sell home Portland area and I wanted to do it fast.
It was left to me from a friend of mine when she passed away. I didn’t want to move into it because I already had a home that I really loved. I considered renting it out and talked to my husband about that.
He quickly shot down the thought and said there would be lots of maintenance we would need to do if someone else would move in there. After I thought about it a little more, I didn’t want to deal with any of this either. I started looking for ways to sell home Portland area.
First I contacted a real estate agency and the realtor that sold us the home we are in now. We told them we wanted to sell the home and wanted to get rid of it fast. We didn’t want to let it go and have to make a bunch of repairs on it from not living in it.
Winter was coming up and I always thought about the worst case scenarios like the pipes freezing up and having to have new plumbing put in the entire house.
The real estate agent said that some homes sell upon
listing them and others take awhile to sell.
I wanted to have the money by spring time and asked the realtor if they could give us a listing for the home and asked them what they thought we could get out of it.
She said that she would need to have an appraiser come and look at the home and also a home inspector to make sure there weren’t any major issues with it. I told her that was fine and made sure to meet up with her later that day to give her the key to the home.
The realtor called me back later in the evening to let me know both the appraiser and home inspector would be coming the next day. I was excited to see what they would tell me the house was worth. I had plans to use this money to pay down the mortgage on the home I am in now and also add a pool to the outside of it in spring.
When the realtor called me the next day
she told me she had some bad news.
She said the foundation of the home wasn’t stable and it also had termites which could cost lots of damage.
This is exactly what I didn’t want to happen and I just wanted to sell home Portland fast without having to do any work to it.
I looked at how to sell a house fast in Portland and that’s when I found a few different companies to come look at it and give me offers on the home. It wasn’t a hard choice to sell my house for cash to the highest offer.
I was just happy to get rid of it and not have to worry about the termites or the foundation in the home. I found out that one of the reasons for a lower offer than we expected was because of the foundation and pest control that would need to be done.
They said it would have to have a tent put around it to kill the termites before they could even list it for sale.
I was able to pay off some of my home loans and I saved some of the money to have a pool put in the following year. I love having a lower home payment and now a pool too.
