Trying to sell your South Carolina house with code violations?

Ugh.

Maybe you can’t list your house on the MLS because it’s in disrepair and you’re probably ALSO worried about getting fined for code violations…

Here’s what you should do…

Estimate Repair Costs — If you plan to sell the house and can’t afford to make all the repairs yourself, then it will be necessary to factor in the cost of those damages and deduct that from the selling price. Buyers usually won’t want to purchase the property for market value unless it’s in market condition.

Fix The Small Stuff — You might want to try and do some of the repairs yourself. With code violations, selling to a typical buyer with a bank loan won’t be possible. So if you want to sell the traditional way, it’s imperative to do some fixing up or hire a contractor to do it for you.

Have The House Cleaned — It’s almost impossible to sell a house on today’s market if it isn’t sparkly clean. Most buyers expect clean, staged homes when viewing houses. So, get rid of all trash, fix code violations, leave utilities up and running, and maybe even hire a professional home stager.

OR Work With a Professional Home Buyer — If all of that sounds like too much work, you might consider working with a professional home buyer in South Carolina. Companies like our own can buy your house as-is for cash and close in as little as two weeks. We’ll deal with the code violations AND put money in your pocket.
