What if a Home Buyer wants you to show them a GROSS house?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Godzyk Real Estate Services NH License 033394

Showing homes is not all peaches and cream. Some buyers do not have Champagne wishes and caviar dreams. Some want the bad, the ugly, mold and fleas. Did I really read that you must be asking? YES, here in the Manchester NH area there are many Investors who call on me, to find them the best deals.

 

What are the best deals? Simply put homes in the worst condition. Those that need the most work have the fewer buyers looking at them. Therefore foreclosures, bank owned and estate sales are many of the homes we target. The buyer inspect the home, make a quick list of what the repair costs are. They make their best cash offer as is without any contingencies. 

 

The goal is to buy, fix and list the repaired home back with me to sell. Turning coal into diamonds per say. 

 

I LOVE working with investors, contractors and cash buyers. I work with those on their first deal and those that have done 100's over 20 years.

 

I also take precautions, having a breathing mask, a flash light and bug spray for those pesky fleas. 

 

 

 Perhaps the MOST IMPORTANT message is to share with every consumer that my philosophy is simple, provide more personal and professional service to guide my clients through each step of the buying or selling process. All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest. Those that hire me, find a dedication like no other.

Scott- I'm glad to hear that you take precautions when going into these houses. I've always said that there is a buyer for every home.

There is usually a buyer for every house, as long as the price is right for condition.  I remember entering one house with white slacks in late spring.  I looked down and my pants had turned charcoal grey.  A cloud of fleas had hopped aboard the moment I had entered.  Add to it, there was a significant mold problem in a partially deconstructed bathroom, and I swore that house would never sell.  However, it did, in relatively short time.  But, at considerably less than the same house in that neighborhood would sell for in good condition.

Myrl Jeffcoat I can usually smell the mold when you open the door, but the fleas usually dont know until they attack. I am wondering how to ward them of just in case the home does have fleas. I ran out like a crazy man, but can say, dont put hand sanitizer on flea bites,

I wish i could James Dray , but i sell them as fast as i get them, so a risk i have to take, but pre cautions come with them.
