Find The Right Realtor

If your home was damaged in a fire, struck by lightning, or has suffered some other electrical mishap, the chances are high that there’s significant damage and a lot more damage than what can be seen on the surface.

After your fire or another disaster, you probably had an insurance agent and other professionals come out to evaluate your property to see how extensive the damage is. The damage may be so expansive that it’s uninhabitable for the time being.

Regardless of how extensive the damage is or what your situation is, you already know the areas of concern. If you believe the damage is too much for you to fix or afford, it might be time to look into a realtor.

But what kind of realtor will give you a fair price on the overall value of your house without charging you a ridiculous commission fee?

At Bill Buys Houses, we, along with a few select other realtors, don’t charge commission fees and work to get you the highest possible price for your property. When you come to us, we’ll take a tour of your property to evaluate the damage with our own eyes, and we’ll take the information your insurance agent or contractor described and use that as part of our decision-making.

From there, we’ll give you a great offer and see if it works for you. Contact us to learn more about our services and see if we’re the right realtor for you.

Get More Than One Free Estimate

Bill Buys Houses offers the best offers and fairest evaluations out of any realtor in our niche or in a traditional manner. Even so, when conducting business of any kind, especially in your home, it’s best to get more than one quote or offer.

When exploring offers from different real estate companies and looking for the best company, you should never have to pay for their offer or estimate. If you’ve hit hard times and want to sell your home as-is or with minimal repairs, you shouldn’t have to pay commission fees or get charged for an offer.

You’ll find no commissions, a free quote, and a fair, competitive offer at Bill Buys Houses!

Decide If You Can Or Want To Make Any Improvements

One of the hardest decisions to make when a fire has damaged your home is whether or not you want to make full repairs or even small repairs. The chances are high that you’re struggling to recover and may not have the funds to make repairs or even seek a traditional real estate agent.

If you’re strapped for money and need cash in a fast transaction so you can get back on your feet, then Bill Buys Houses is perfect for you. We’ll buy your house as-is, no matter how extensive your fire damage is, and complete your cash transaction typically within one week.

Get Started With The Sale Process

Another thing to consider when selling your home after it’s been damaged in fire is how the sales process works with your specific real estate company.

The company in question should work with you to establish a schedule that works best for you so the transaction goes at your pace and works for your needs. You’re picking up the pieces of your life and need to find a company that understands what you’re going through.

You’ll find that with Bill Buys Houses!

Reasons To Sell A Fire-Damaged Home As-Is

If you are unsure about selling your fire-damaged home, there are some benefits to doing so. Selling a home as-is can be a fairly simple process that will get you cash in hand in about a week.

Here are a few reasons why you might want to sell your home for cash after a fire.

Financial Condition

If you are unable or unwilling to make the necessary repairs to the home, selling it as-is can get you some of your money back without the stress of dealing with repairs.

Emotional Distress

A home damaged in a fire causes a lot of emotional distress. The trauma of watching your home burn can be difficult to overcome, and sometimes, selling your home as-is can give you a sense of closure and reduce the stress of managing repairs.

Health Concerns

Sometimes, fires can expose harmful substances, like mold or asbestos. If your home has asbestos, it might be a better idea to sell as-is.

Time Constraints

Trying to sell your home as-is can take a while, which means you’re waiting around for weeks or months waiting for someone to take an interest. If you are under a time constraint, selling your fire-damaged home as-is can get you cash in hand and out from under the stress of repairs.

Selling your home for cash offers a much quicker process!

Clean Slate

If you wish to start over after losing a home, selling your fire-damaged home for cash can help you accomplish that goal. With the money from your home sale, you can put a down payment on a new home or purchase the items you need for your new home.
