If you are trying to sell your home, and haven’t had much luck because it needs repairs, this article is written for you! Selling a home that needs repairs can be a long, time-consuming process. There is a good chance that the home doesn’t even sell. The problem is that selling a home that is damaged or needs repairs makes it hard for buyers to even be interested, as they know the work they will have to put into it.

By this point, you are probably asking yourself a few questions. Will my home even sell? Am I going to have to make the repairs myself to sell it? How much will this cost? We will go over the process and help answer some of your questions. Homes that are ugly can be a huge burden, but making repairs may not be necessary. Here are some suggestions on how to sell a home that needs repairs.

Determine the Value of Your Home

Since your home needs some TLC, determine if making the repairs or renovations is something worth doing. Potential buyers will overestimate the amount of money they will need to put into a home to fix it up. So keep in mind buyers will only be willing to pay so much for their efforts. If your home needs a lot of work it may be hard to incentivize a buyer to move into a home that is not in move in ready condition. 

When it comes to selling your home without making repairs, these are your options.

Sell by Owner

Selling your home by owner is the route everyone wants to take. After all you will get the most money in the end, right? The answer is NO! Unfortunately, even selling on your own will put you out a lot of money and time. Here are some of the advantages and disadvantages to sell by owner.


  • Avoid realtor fees
