House in need of repairs

Thinking of selling your Columbia, TN home? Are you considering that you should clean out or update your Columbia Home before you sell it? You might be tempted to jump in and start sprucing it up – fixing leaky faucets, painting the peeling trim, or even tackling a full-blown kitchen renovation. But hold on! Before you grab your toolbox and cleaning supplies, there’s something crucial you need to consider: who are you selling to?

OKAY, maybe the inside of your home doesn’t look like the photo above. But…

For many homeowners in Columbia, Tennessee the traditional route of listing with a realtor and waiting for offers might not be the best option. Don’t get me wrong, I have many friends who are great Real Estate Agents. But if you have lived in your home for 10, 15, 20 or more years you might need to invest in updating, major repairs, and other costly changes.

There is a better option especially if you:

  • Need a fast sale: Life throws curve balls, and sometimes you need to move quickly. Traditional listings can take weeks or even months to find a buyer. For those wanting to move into a 55+ community you may need to sell faster and for cash before the place your want it taken.
  • Don’t want the hassle of showings: Keeping your house spotless and constantly available for potential buyers can be a major headache. And having to quickly leave your home before the agent comes with another prospect can get old fast.
  • Want to avoid costly repairs: Renovations can be expensive, and there’s no guarantee they’ll add enough value to recoup your investment. When we sold our Minnesota home in 2022 we were required to replace the working septic system. That cost us nearly $30,000 and ruined our beautiful yard.
  • Have a home that needs work: If your house has cosmetic damage or outdated finishes, traditional buyers might not want to take on the job. If you don’t want to do it yourself you will need to find sub-contractors who will bring the design up to current standards.

Enter the Cash Buyer Advantage

If any of these scenarios sound familiar, selling your Columbia home for cash could be the perfect solution. Cash buyers, like Henry Buys House in Tennessee, are investors who specialize in buying houses quickly and “as-is.” This means:

  • No repairs needed: You can leave the replacement of heating and air conditioning systems, leaky faucets and chipped paint for someone else to handle.
  • Fast closings: Cash buyers close deals quickly, often in less than 30 days.
  • Pay No Sales Commissions: The commission structure for real estate agents is changing but, 6% is still an typical commission. For the sale of an average $350,000 home that is over $20,000 paid out of the proceeds of your sale.
  • No showings: No need to worry about keeping your house clean or accommodating potential buyers’ schedules.

Competitive offers: Cash buyers can offer competitive prices, even for homes that need work.
