Has your home suffered damage from a fire? If so, you may be weighing the options available to you. The severity of the damage will strongly influence your decision, as lesser amounts of damage might allow you to continue living in the home while other levels of damage might require vacating the home temporarily while repairs are made. If that is the case, you may then want to consider a different option – selling your fire damaged house in St Louis as-is. FasterHouse specializes in these types of sales, giving you an appealing alternative in this situation.
Repair from fire and smoke damage can cost anywhere from $700 to $65,000, according to HomeAdvisor.com. Your homeowner’s insurance should cover most if not all of the repair costs, but the time needed to process the payment may vary based on your provider.
Paying for repairs is not the only time-sensitive issue you will face when dealing with fire damage in your home. The time required to make the repairs as well could be problematic. You may be looking at several months to repair the damage done, and as noted earlier, your home may be uninhabitable during the time needed to make the repairs.
An as-is sale may provide the solution you are looking for. If you are not familiar with as-is home sales, the concept is quite simple. In a traditional home selling process, you will have the home you are selling inspected, the inspector will note anything that needs to be fixed, and your buyer might also demand that certain issues are addressed before closing the purchase. Or they may be willing to make a concession in paying a lower price if repairs are not made.
But in an as-is sale, you will not haggle over what does or does not need to be fixed. You will not need to hire an inspector to review the premises. And you will not need to worry that some repair issue will make the home unsellable.
We will send one of our local home-buying experts to view your home. After checking out the premises, we will use our knowledge of the St Louis housing market to provide you with our best offer – one that is not contingent on repairs being made, even in the case of smoke and fire damage.
