Are you considering buying, selling or renovating a fixer-upper home in Phoenix, AZ, Scottsdale or in a Historic Phoenix district? Look no further! I understand that this can be an exciting yet challenging endeavor, and I’m here to guide you every step of the way. First…

Why NOT to Sell Your Phoenix Fixer-Upper to a Wholesaler

Phoenix Fixer-Upper HomesIf you don’t want to tackle the project of renovating a property yourself, when selling a fixer-upper, it’s important to carefully consider your options and make informed decisions. While wholesalers may seem like a convenient choice, there are several reasons why selling to a wholesaler may not be the best route.

Wholesalers Play Money Games

I’ve been through so many scenarios where wholesalers are doing what they’re good at which involves getting you to sell your fixer for pennies on the dollar. Don’t let this happen!

Money Games Played by Wholesalers When Buying Fixer Uppers

Wholesalers play serious money games when it comes to buying fixer uppers. They know the ropes. And I know their ropes like the back of my hand. Yes, they will offer you cash and even pay your closing costs. They’ll convince you to bypass hiring a real estate agent telling you that will put more money in your pocket.

Well, that’s just not true. What they’re not telling you is the real market value of your property and will lowball you by tens of thousands of dollars. I see it all the time. So many sellers have left a substantial amount of money on the table by not knowing the true value of their fixer upper. I’ll let you know it’s true value.

Don’t Rush Selling Your Fixer

Don’t rush selling your fixer. If you’re in a hurry, that’s one thing. But don’t rush. Don’t play into desperation of not knowing how to sell these properties and then leave money on the table. It’s not necessary, especially when you can sell your fixer quickly and take home a lot more money by using a licensed agent with experience selling fixers than a wholesaler will offer you directly.

The Condition Doesn’t Matter When Selling Your Historic Phoenix Fixer-Upper

Buying and Selling Historic Phoenix Fixer-UppersNo matter the condition of your “fixer-upper” home, and it can be utterly terrible, choosing NOT to sell to a wholesaler will ultimately result in a higher net profit. It’s so important to get your home into the open market. This, I can guarantee!

Wholesalers Will Offer You a Significantly Lower Sale Price

Wholesalers typically aim to purchase properties at significantly discounted prices in order to resell them quickly for a profit.

This means that you may not receive the full market value for your fixer-upper. They have many tactics for this which I am very keen.

The Pitfalls of Selling to Wholesalers In or Outside Arizona

Many wholesalers, not all, often prioritize quantity over quality. They may not invest the time and resources needed to maximize the potential of your fixer-upper. They do this in order to make a quick buck while not nearly paying you what your fixer is actually worth.

Missed Opportunity for Higher Offers

By selling to a wholesaler, you may miss out on the opportunity to attract other investors who are willing to pay a higher price for a fixer. Instead, consider working with a reputable, licensed Realtor like Laura Boyajian, who specializes in fixer-uppers in Phoenix, AZ.

With my vast experience in selling fixers, I’ll market your property effectively, attract the right buyers. And, I’ll negotiate a fair price that reflects the true value of your fixer-upper. I will not let you leave money on the table by having you sell to a wholesaler.

Selling Your Historic Phoenix Fixer-Upper “As-Is” to Local Investors

For sellers who may be concerned about the condition of their fixer-upper and the challenges it may pose in the selling process, working with local investors provides viable solutions. Investors almost always pay all cash for properties and purchase them “as-is,” relieving sellers of the burden of making costly repairs or renovations.

This is particularly advantageous for those who are looking for a quick and hassle-free transaction. By selling to local investors, sellers can bypass the traditional market and find buyers who see the potential in their fixer-upper, allowing them to sell their property in its current condition and still receive a fair offer.

Local Investors Also Make Lowball Offers

Local investors, like wholesale investors, also try to pick up their properties for a serious discount. This is also at the seller’s financial peril. They, just like wholesale investors, will also lowball you and do everything possible to convince you what they’re offering is fair. It’s a serious money game here, too.

Shady Tactics

There are so many shady tactics, especially with wholesalers, but also the local investor.  However, the local investors sometimes tend to be a little easier to work with as they likely know the value of their finished product and are willing to pay more.

Don’t get me wrong, local investors play the money game, too. This is what all investors do for a living and they’ve mastered it. You just have to know the games they play, how they play it, but more importantly, how to not let them win so you can rightfully so keep more money in your pocket. This is where I come in.

Do You Own a Fixer-Upper Home In a Historic Phoenix District and Want to Maximize its Value for a Handsome Profit?

If you own an old home and want to maximize your investment by renovating it yourself for a profit, you’ll probably want and need guidance. Perhaps you’ve inherited a home and it needs a ton of work. Or, you’re new to the “flipper” business and want to know where to start. Or maybe, you’ve inherited the property which is in, or, going to probate, and you need guidance on how to sell a property in probate. Either way, I can help you.

Fix up & Sell Like Flippers Do

If you don’t want to sell to an flipper investor, you can do a lot of the work yourself with the help of contractors you need. Then, you can sell a remodeled fixer for a handsome profit, just like flippers do. I can help you achieve this from beginning to end. I’ve done it before with many, many clients who are not in the “flipper” business, and can absolutely help you, too.

Strategic Planning for Profitable Renovations For Your Historic Phoenix Fixer-Upper Home

When it comes to renovating your own fixer-upper to maximize your investment profits, the key is to start with a clear plan and budget in mind. I’ll guide you with all the numbers. For starters, I’ll price your home’s value as-is. Then, I’ll price it for what the finished product could sell for based on the scope of the remodel.

Enhancing Value Through Strategic Renovations

We’ll begin by assessing the property and identifying areas that require attention to increase its value. Together, we’ll prioritize projects that offer the highest return on investment, such as updating kitchens and bathrooms, addressing any and all plumbing and electrical issues, making sure the roof is good condition, improving curb appeal and addressing any other items to make an attractive final product in order to sell for maximum profit.

Adding Square Footage to a Historic Phoenix Fixer-Upper For Increased and Maximum Value

I’ve had many clients who inherited a historic home, or just an older home, that a family member lived in for years that’s seen little to no updates over the decades. These homes almost always have many outdated features and limited space.

When faced with such a property, one effective strategy to significantly increase its value is by adding square footage. By expanding the footprint of the home, you can not only modernize its layout but also attract a higher selling price in the end. Plus, knowing how to choose the proper period-appropriate décor that historic homebuyers love is very important. This, too, helps maximize returns.

They decided to work with me for counsel and referrals in order to renovate the property themselves. As a result, this helped them maximize their profit. They’re all extremely happy.

Figuring Out The End Price on Your Fixer Before Renovations Begin

In knowing how much remodeling your fixer will cost, I’ll help you figure out the end price even renovation starts. And, during the renovation, we’ll consistently revisit the numbers to make sure your profit numbers are on track because construction costs often change.

DIY and Expert Collaboration is a Recipe for Profitable Renovations

When renovating your fixer-upper, it’s beneficial to leverage your skills and resources to tackle DIY projects like painting, flooring installation, and landscaping. Each task you complete yourself helps save on labor costs and contributes to maximizing profits. By adopting a strategic approach to your renovation, combining DIY efforts with expert assistance where necessary, you can turn your property into a lucrative investment with substantial returns.

Roll Up Your Sleeves For Additional Profits

Taking on as much of the renovation work yourself allows you to add a personal touch. So, if you want to roll up your sleeves and pick up some tools, that will keep some money in your pocket. Moreover, this enhances the property’s appeal to potential buyers, ultimately increasing its value in the market.

Expert Guidance for Complex Fixer-Upper Home Projects

For more complex projects or tasks outside your expertise, don’t hesitate to seek guidance from experienced professionals. This ensures the work is done correctly and efficiently. As part of my service, I have a huge network of licensed contractors like plumbers, electricians, painters, handymen and women which I’ll connect you with for consultations and estimates. Additionally, I have many other resources you’ll find valuable.
