Fast Selling Rehab Houses – Springfield Massachusetts

Gorgeous Home For Sale in Springfield MA

 

Here is a recent completed renovation that we sold very fast….. before we even had to list it for sale on the MLS!!94 Warrenton_401

This is a 4 bedroom 2 full bath cape style home located in Springfield Massachusetts that we did a full rehab on.

 

 

Improvements included all new plumbing, new electric, all new heating system, brand new kitchen, 2 completely renovated full baths, some new siding. We added some additional square footage by finishing off a rear porch into additional living space. The finished porch is now open to the kitchen and makes a nice dining room.

We added a full bath on the second floor to go along with 2 large bedrooms.

The team did a great job getting this property fixed up and ready for sale.

Here are the photos of the completed home:

 

 

This one came out great.

We used a different color in the bedrooms; it’s more of a grey tone, as opposed to the usual Tan……… I like it.

What do you think??

Selling Your House With Pets

Pets can be a problem when it comes to showing, selling a home.

If you’ve sold a home, you probably have your “short-notice showing” drill in place. Hopefully you’re keeping the house relatively clean and neat during the sales process, so all you need to do is straighten, gather the family, and decide on the nearest ice cream place or entertainment venue to kill an hour or so.

For veteran sellers, it’s no big deal.

But one thing that is often overlooked, and can often be a big deal, is what to do with the furrier members of your family during a showing. Sure, a Sunday drive can be just as much fun with the family dog in the car, but what if you’re at work? What if your dog weighs 100 pounds and takes up two of the kids’ seats? What if you have a cat that would sooner take a bath than get in the car?

It can be a problem because,as this article from homebuying.about.com points out, everybody loves pets except for the home buyer who may be looking at purchasing your house.

While we let that harsh reality settle in, let’s talk about what to do about it.

The article’s top solution? Prepare yourself.

Have the animals live somewhere else while you’re relocating.

Yeah, we know. But think about it. It’s not always practical or convenient to you to get them out of the house while it’s being shown. It’s not fair or healthy to your beloved pets to throw them in a basement, yard or other confined space during the showing, either (and, if they have fear or anxiety about the situation, it’s not good for your house).

But would a family member or friend agree to take them on for a limited amount of time? Is it economically feasible to board them for an open-ended amount of time? It’s something you should think about.

In the meantime, you can make some pet-related fixes to the house; waxing and polishing floors, cleaning baseboards and under furniture (even the least-sheddy of pets leave some trace), and getting rid of odors and stains (think around doors, litter boxes, beds and food bowls).

This won’t be the most popular solution but, as the article says, if you want top dollar for your house, you’ll at least consider it.

Consider that the nuclear option, but clearly there are other ways. If you’re able to keep up on having the house clean and eliminating evidence of the animals, you can always have a trusted neighbor come get them and take them for a walk ahead of the showing. At the bare minimum, according to the article, you should put the animal in a size-appropriate crate and clearly mark it “Dog/Cat Inside: Please do not disturb.”

Another practical tip, from the experts at Zillow.com Check your local laws and see if disclosing pet presence is required in your area. It often is. Some buyers will appreciate knowing because of allergy concerns. Best case scenario, you’ve done such a good job cleaning up after your pets, they’ll be impressed by your housekeeping skills!

One other tip: Just because your house is spotless doesn’t mean it’s odorless. You may have lived with a particular pet’s odor for so long that you simply don’t notice it. Bring in a neighbor or honest friend and ask them to tell you if they smell your pets in your showing-ready house. If they still do, consider a professional cleaning of carpets and furniture. An article from HowStuffWorks states that undetected pet odor or damage can take up to $30,000 off the value of a home. Can you afford a deep-cleaning for that?

Here at Hampden Homebuyers we don’t mind if you are selling your house and it is full of pets. As a matter of fact, we recently bought a home that was vacant for 5 years and had a family of raccoons living inside!

You could send your pet off to live with family and friends while you try to sell your home, but this doesn’t seem pratictical. If you would like to sell your house quickly in “as-is” condition to a buyer that doesn’t mind if you have pets, then give us a call at 413-248-SELL or fill out our “Sell Your House Now” form on our website to get the process started.

Selling a Vacant Springfield Area Home

Selling a Vacant Springfield / Chicopee Home

Sell a House Springfield MA

Selling a Vacant Home

So you’ve got an extra house in the Springfield, Chicopee, Holyoke area. It’s vacant, taking up your time and energy, but for what? Will you be renting it out or perhaps putting it on the market? Whatever your decision will be, you’ll most definitely be spending some big money in preparations.

Renters require a certain amount of time, energy and patience and having the house up to a “rental satisfaction” will mean making sure everything is in working order. Selling a house will take even more attention as now you are not only considering the renters, you have to consider your realtor and what they would want you to do to get it into sale shape, the home inspection company, who will tell you every tiny thing that needs fixing and the new buyer who might insist on a new roof or new carpets before they make an offer. There are plenty of things to consider.

Your vacant house can also be subject to vandalism, pest infestation, dry rot, overgrown vegetation, insurance cancelation etc. Without proper maintenance, even a nice home can become subject to a multitude of problems. Owning a vacant house can be a headache on so many levels.

So now you’ve decided that the vacant home needs to go, but you don’t want to spend a ton of money out of your pocket. So why not consider a cash sale. We buy houses, vacant homes, lots and land with no money out of your pocket. We even take care of the garbage. Hampden Homebuyers LLC has been buying homes in the Springfield metro area for over 10 years with a stellar reputation in the community. We pay cash for vacant homes, buy them as-is and can close within 2 weeks. Fill out our sell fast form at www.HampdenHomebuyers.com and see what we can do for you today!

You can see that the house was completely engulfed in trees!!!!!!

 

 

We had our tree crew over there working to clear it all out. Below is some of the progress we made.

Do You Need To Sell Your House?

You’ve tried to sell your house but are running into roadblocks.  You probably even tried calling a real estate agent. Sometimes selling a house the traditional way with a real estate agent is simply not the best for everyone.  As you know, there can be lots of pitfalls when selling a house the agent route, including: having to clean up and repair the property so it shows well, finding an agent who you trust and who can deliver on their promise (selling your house quickly), signing a contract that binds you to an agent for a certain term, the piles of paperwork you have to sign, shuffling paperwork back and forth from buyer –> to agent –> to you… and back.

The biggest issue with trying to sell with a real estate agent or selling it yourself is often times retail buyers will tie up a home for weeks and pull out on the deal at the last second… or have their bank loan fall through.

It can all add stress, months to the process, and in the end after paying the agent fees, you may or may not be ahead of the game.

At Hampden Homebuyers we work differently.  We will provide you a fair all-cash offer on your house within 24 hours of submitting the short property info form below and can close when you want to closeIf the house is in terrible shape and you don’t want to (or can’t) fix it up… NO problem, we’ll deal with it for you.  If you need to get something done quickly, we can close in as little as 7 days because we buy houses with cash and don’t have to rely on traditional bank financing.

In short…

No matter the condition of your house – your situation – or timeframe… 

Our goal is to help make your life easier and to get out from under that property that’s
stressing you out… while still paying a fast, fair, and honest price for your house.
