It’s been on the market and just won’t sell. It needs costly repairs and you don’t have the time or money to invest. It was passed down to you and it’s become a burden. It was an investment and it’s not making a profit.
There are so many reasons you may find yourself in possession of an unwanted house. So how do you get rid of it? First of all, don’t sweat it, you’re not alone. Secondly, we’ve got a couple ideas to help you move on from that property.
Donate to a Charity
If you are in a dire circumstances and need to rid yourself of a property but you’ve got a heart of gold, this is a great option for you. First you need to find the right charity. You want to make sure your home (however unwanted) will actually go to a reputable charity. Websites like CharityWatch will help you see how an organization actually uses their donations. Once you feel good about your chosen charity, donate your home! You’ll also likely get a substantial tax deduction. The process can take as much as a month or more so it’s important to factor in the expenses that occur in the waiting period.
Sell to an Investor or Traditional Buyer
Listen, just because you don’t want to donate your home doesn’t mean you don’t have a heart of gold. You just want make some cash on your unwanted property and there is nothing wrong with that. So now you have to decide which route to go, traditional or investor. If you think you can make a sizeable profit after realtor fees and commissions, then that could be your best option. However, if you know your property is a little more high maintenance, then an investor could be a better option. If the home is a rental and you no longer want to be a landlord, if you’ve inherited a property you don’t want, if you are going through a divorce, or you’d just like the cash as quickly as possible then a direct buyer is a great route!
Selling to an investor allows you to skip all the annoying and time consuming aspects of selling. You won’t have to worry about repairing anything, cleaning anything, paying commissions or even sales falling through. Instead, you’ll go straight from giving information about your property, to receiving a no-obligation offer, to closing in a matter of days! It’s really that easy. And just like that you’re unwanted property can turn into cash.
