“Homes that sold in the first 4 weeks average 1% above listing price, compared to homes that sold later average 5% or more below list price.”
-National Association of Realtors
A client owned an investment property in which the tenant had abandoned the home mid-winter, and since the electric and gas account was in the tenant’s name, they canceled it and left the property unattended. Unfortunately the pipes burst, followed by warmer weather which resulted in a mold issue by the time the owners discovered the problem.
The owner originally listed the property for sale “as-is” at the price they “needed” in order to avoid a big loss, but it would not sell. They were caught in the middle between needing more than it would sell for in as-is condition, but far lower than it would sell for in repaired condition. In addition to very bad timing of the incident, the damage was extensive enough that the owners did not have enough extra cash to pay out of pocket to get the repairs done. They could not obtain regular financing due to the poor condition of the property. They were uninterested in the high cost of alternative financing for such a short period of time.
We were able to solve the problem by lending them the necessary funds at low cost and obtaining contractor pricing on labor to make the repairs. We managed the entire process on their behalf and got the property sold for them at the highest price on record at that time for a house of its kind in their neighborhood.
How much of a difference did this really make? It was significant.
As-Is Listing Price: $196,572
Actual Repairs: $30,750
Actual Sales Price: $299,900
Gross Sales Price Difference: $103,328
Gross Sales Proceeds Less Repairs: $72,578
Keep in mind, this customer was unable to sell the property in as-is condition without taking a loss, and that wasn’t an option for them. Instead, they were able to turn a loss into $72,578 in gross proceeds. The question becomes, would you leverage $30,750 to make $72,578? In case you don’t have a calculator handy, that’s 42.36% return on investment. I think for most people it’s a resounding yes, especially if you can do it with no money out of pocket. That’s the kind of plan we work to put together for you.
This case study is meant to demonstrate that we can handle large jobs, but in most cases, they’re small jobs and small amounts of money leveraged to make a large difference in sales price and net proceeds for the seller.
