You might be thinking about listing your house. The traditional route for selling a house is to find a real estate agent, do a ton of work to get your house ready for showings, and wait. This method works well for a lot of people! It does involve waiting to find the right buyer, and can take months in some markets and some situations. When you list and sell your house through a real estate agent, you’ll also be paying certain fees and commissions for their services (they handle the marketing, the showings, and do their best to target buyers in your area.)
What do you do in situations where the neighborhood might not be as safe as it used to be, where a house has fallen into disrepair, or properties nearby have been abandoned? The value of your home may have fallen. You might not attract buyers if you go the traditional route.
What happens to a city that was founded in 1682? Well, some neighborhoods get older. Some houses get run down. It just happens! If you own a home in one of these neighborhoods, you might feel like you’ll never be able to sell. You’ll never be able to make all of the repairs.
