Sell your home now as-is. Quick Closing. No repairs.
Selling a house as-is in a stress-free way
The process of selling your property may be a source of discomfort. It implies managing so many things that you are always at risk of getting bogged down. But the stress peaks when your house is in poor condition and needs repairs or remodeling. That’s when selling your home as-is in Orange County can be a wise option.
Let us close this deal for you! The Bald Brothers Team can facilitate the purchase your home off-market or sell it on the open market, regardless of its condition. Selling a house that needs repairs is never a nuisance with our team, whether you’re selling an unfinished, awfully shabby, inhabitable, or other unkept property. Our specialists will do their due diligence to offer a reasonable price for your house or condo.
We’ve successfully closed homes that had unfinished remodels, broken windows, fire damage, pet and urine stains and feces throughout, mold and extensive water damage, slab cracks, leaky roofs, mystery odors, dead landscaping, plumbing issues, unpermitted work, and more. You name, we’ve seen it and we’ve sold it.
Selling my house as-is: Know your options
The real estate market can be mysterious because it is always changing, and selling a house that looks like nobody has been living there for decades can be overwhelming. But if you think, “Should I sell my home as-is or get it renovated first?” you should realize you are not limited to just making cosmetic repairs only. There may be more work that needs to be done if you start the renovation process, only to discover significant and costly repairs.
If you inherited the property and it’s in poor condition, it’s helpful to know that you are responsible for any of the work you do on the home prior to selling. If you’d prefer not to renovate the home you’ve inherited and decide to sell it as-is, this limits your liability and may be the best option for you.
With The Bald Brothers Team, you can choose from off-market and open-market selling options. Both of these options can be great, but the key is that you will always have the support provided by Aaron and Todd who will walk you through each process.
The open market option is a selling strategy of choice for those who are looking for:
Higher prices for their properties
Lots of views
If you opt to sell a home as-is in Orange County with this option, get ready to have buyers flock to your property for showings. If that sounds like a problem, consider going for an off-market deal with the Bald Brothers Team.
An off-market deal is an excellent idea if you want to:
Keep your deal private
Get cash for your property (cash is paid for most off-market properties)
Close the deal ASAP
Want minimal attention and limited visitors
The benefits of going off-market are obvious, but the money is lower than what you may potentially be paid with an on-market deal. If you need more time to decide, explore both options in detail with our specialists. We will evaluate your situation and the desired price to recommend a win-win solution.
However you choose to sell your home, we hope you choose the Bald Brothers Team to handle the sale. Our process of selling allows you, the homeowner, to do as little or as much as you want. If you live out of the area, we can handle everything from A to Z, including maintaining the property, securing the property, and selling it. You don’t have to travel to California to sell your home either. We handle everything by phone, email, and with digital signatures to save you time, money, and hassle.
Selling a house as-is in Orange County is as simple as dialing 833-305-BALD (2253)! Note, that’s 8-3-3 (not 800). We look forward to working with you.
