Beauty in the eye of the beholder: Ugly Houses


It seems that everywhere you turn there are companies who advertise buying ugly houses. These messages offer too quickly buy any house, regardless of the  condition. The problem is that their offers are often significantly below market  value.  

If you’re a seller whose home needs some attention, you might think these  companies are your only option. Some of the offers sound attractive; quick sale,  all cash, no commissions, and no fees. But before you do anything, it’s worth your time to call the Ebersole & Kelley Real Estate Team now for a  second opinion.  

3 Reasons to Call  The Ebersole & Kelley Real Estate Team Now:

  1. Free Advice – The real estate agent will not charge you anything to simply  come look at your home.
  2. Your House Might Not Be that Ugly – You may be surprised to find that  your home is actually quite marketable. A few years ago, a 1950s mid-century  modern home would have been considered a tear-down. Now, these ranch  homes command top dollar and are in very short supply.  
  3. A Path Forward – If your home does have some issues, the agent can offer  some ideas about moving forward. They can suggest local contractors, like Port City Paint a professional in Wilmington, NC area to  provide repair/upgrade services or market what you perceive to be an ugly house to investors that might still offer  significantly higher prices than the quick-sale guys.  

Even outdated houses sell. We are in a seller’s market in almost every part of the  country. Selling your home has a large financial impact on you and your family. 

Don’t make assumptions about value, reach out to Tammy Ebersole or Carissa Kelley at Ebersole & Kelley Real Estate Team today, and make  sure you understand all your options so you can get the best offer possible.  Our goal is to offer an unparalleled level of service to our highly respected clients.
