Update an old Home or Sell As-Is?

Whether you’re a rehabber, wholesaler, cash home buyer or just a homeowner looking to fix up their house, taking on a remodeling job can be difficult. As Cash Home Buyers, we’ve been updating and remodeling homes for over 15 years. Over the years we’ve seen just about everything from easy “patch and paint” rehabs to complete “tear downs”.

If you’re a homeowner and you own an old outdated property, you may be thinking about remodeling it before your sell it. I’d think twice before wasting your money on fixing and updating a home just to place it on the market and hope for a sale.

The professionals at Ligon Cash Home Buyers are experienced and specialize in updating and rehabbing outdated and damaged homes. We have a team of professionals that can handle any unforeseen issue we’re faced with. However as a homeowner once you begin opening walls and exposing issues your chance of selling the home without a full rehab quickly declines.

Buyers don’t want a home that they have immediately work on, and rehabbers prefer to start their own rehab, not take on another persons headache. So if you’re not an experienced rehabber I’d recommend you Sell the home As-Is to a Cash Home Buyer.

Some of the issues you may encounter are:

  1. Permit issues

  2. Electrical issues and code violations

  3. Plumbing issues and code violations

  4. Foundation issues and structural concerns

  5. Old and outdated construction that needs to be brought up to code

That’s just to name a few. Once you add in the repair costs, Realtor commissions and hold time, you can walk away with a lot less than selling the home now as-is.

Here’s a recent home we bought As-Is and remodeled.


This home had several unforeseen issues that would have been a real problem for an inexperienced homeowner. However for the professionals at Ligon Cash Home Buyers it was just another day at the office. We’re very good at our job and we love what we do!
