You will be pleasantly surprised that your very ugly, ill-maintained, and generally unattractive home can easily be sold for quick cash to the right investor - an investor who will tell you "we buy houses in any condition". That's right - there are actually investors nowadays who will buy any type of house, even those that would usually be rejected by conventional investors. This proves to be a great opportunity for people who want to get rid of their home (without resorting to arson to pick up some quick insurance money.) After all, no investor will say "we buy houses that are insurance risks" but you get the idea.
What types of houses would qualify for such a deal? Investors who specialize in buying such homes would tell you: "we buy houses that are considered too ugly to be sold" (perhaps because the original architect favored an outlandish or too trendy design for the home; or the present homeowner was overconfident about his home refurbishment skills and botched up the project); or which have not been adequately maintained; or do not have a market for them presently because buyers seem to favor other architectural styles for their future home. Whichever of these makes your investor eagerly approach you saying: "we buy houses!", then that is a good motivation to sell your home.
There are also many reasons why people want to sell their ugly and ill-maintained homes. One reason could be that they are just plain tired of the place and would like to live somewhere else. Another reason could be that they do not have enough money to make the place look better, so they would prefer to just sell it. Perhaps the homeowners are facing retirement so they need a home that requires less maintenance - for example, perhaps they will sell their family-style home and use the proceeds of the sale to buy a small comfy condominium unit that would suit their less demanding lifestyle. Others may just plain recognize a good deal like this when they see it and want to take advantage of the opportunity. Whichever of these is applicable to you, rest assured that there are investors who will really make you a cash offer for your less-than-desirable home because "we buy houses in any condition" is their mantra.
The investors have the necessary funding to be able to turn your Cinderella home into a livable and comfortable home that other people will want to make their own. The investor will invest into renovating your dilapidated residence, then compute how much the sale price would then need to be so that he can, in turn, sell the now-attractive home to buyers who can also spot a good deal when they see it. The advantage for such buyers is that the investor may offer a more affordable price for them, considering the house or real estate property has been lived in before. So for people who do not mind buying second-hand houses, condominium units, and real estate properties of any sort, this is the right kind of transaction for them to enter into.
When we say real estate properties, this does not by any means exclude raw pieces of land. On the contrary, land that does not have any properties standing on them are actually gold mines waiting for the right prospector to tap into their potential value. When the investor says "we buy houses of any kind", that is also inclusive of raw land. So do not hesitate to approach investors who can pay you cash money for your real estate properties, particularly if you have very compelling needs.
