Sell Your House Fast As Is

Block image

Code violations are a common occurrence for many homeowners. Unfortunately, many code violations are incredibly problematic, especially when attempting to sell a home. To list a home on the traditional market, homeowners are often forced into making expensive repairs and renovations in order to meet strict city ordinances. Additionally, buyers are sometimes deterred from purchasing a home that has been subject to many code violations. OneStep Offer helps homeowners avoid the hassle of jumping through hoops in order to sell by purchasing a home “as-is”. With OneStep Offer, you can fast track the sale of your home, regardless of existing code violations.

What Does It Mean to Sell Your Home As-Is?

When you sell your home as-is, it means that you do not need to make any repairs or improvements on the home before you sell it. Selling “as is” removes the obligation from the seller to bring a home up to code before it can be sold. Since homes that are sold “as-is” will often require significant renovation, it is understood that typically, those homes are sold at a lower price because the buyer will complete the necessary repairs.
Homeowners sell their homes as-is for a variety of reasons including:

They do not have the money to make the needed repairs and updates to bring it up to code.

They do not have the time to invest in the home.

They simply may not want to deal with the aggravation.

What are the Most Common Code Violations That Hinder Home Sales?

Building codes pertain to the construction and occupancy of a home. They are put in place to protect the health and safety of those who spend time in or around the home, including residents, neighbors, and even passersby. Homes that do not come up to code can either be fixed before being placed on the market or sold as-is. These are the some of the most common code violations our clients encounter:
  • Sidewalk & Alley Clearance: Vegetation or structures that obstruct sidewalks or alleys are common code violations. In some instances these are resolved with simple fixes, however, these violations can result in a much more complicated nuisance for homeowners that require expensive maintenance or specialized removal.
  • Lead & Asbestos: Older homes (built before 1978) often have issues with toxic materials like lead and asbestos. In order to sell these homes, federal law requires special disclosure and a lengthy inspection process.
  • General Disrepair: Homes in general disrepair are one of the most common causes of code violations. General disrepair can include broken windows, missing paint, missing bricks in walls and chimneys, rotted wood, and crumbling stairs and patios. While these issues are common, they are a strong deterrent for many homebuyers in the general market. Unfortunately, repairing homes that have fallen into disrepair can be incredibly
    expensive for homeowners.
  • Unsafe Structures: While the literal code may vary depending on location, a home may be deemed an unsafe structure when it does not have adequate accessibility to exits or entrances, structures that may constitute a fire hazard or anything that may be dangerous to human life. This may include the structural layout of a home, as well as, electrical and plumbing systems.

What are the Most Expensive Home Repairs?

Home inspections have the potential to result in expensive yet necessary repairs. Houses that are in need of expensive repairs can be difficult to sell. This leads many homeowners to choose to sell their home as-is and forego the hassle of investing a great deal of time in money into it. These are the most expensive home repairs:

  • HVAC systems (heating and air) – Buyers want homes that have an up-to-date and properly maintained HVAC system. The price of an HVAC unit depends on the square footage of the home and can range anywhere from a couple of thousand dollars to over 10 grand.
  • Roof replacement – A damaged roof can leak which can cause structural damage to the home. The cost of a new roof depends on how big your home is and what kind of room you decide to install.
  • Foundation repairs – Foundation repairs can range from minor fixes to a complete overhaul. In order to meet code, this is not an optional repair.
  • Termite damage repair – Termites primarily feed on wood. A heavy or prolonged termite infestation of your home will compromise the structural integrity of your home.
