Sell Your Chattanooga House With Tornado Damage
Tornadoes can cause immense amounts of damage and devastation. Having a home hit by a tornado can be a very traumatic experience, and it takes a while to get back to life feeling “normal” again. Some people choose to rebuild and others want to start over somewhere else. Whatever you do, we hope you get back a space to call home as soon as possible.
If you decide to sell your home that was damaged by a tornado, you need to make sure you know what you’re getting yourself in to.
We buy houses in Chattanooga, even ones with tornado or storm damage. We buy 100% As-Is and won’t ask you to make any repairs. Not sure about selling to New Horizon? Let’s take a look at what exactly you may be up against when selling your home in Chattanooga damaged by a storm.
What Do I Do After My Home Is Damaged By A Tornado?
If you have homeowner’s insurance, the very first thing you need to do is call your insurance company and start a claim. If the storm caused significant damage, your insurance company will likely be getting a lot of claims. You want to be at the top of the list. Be sure to take lots of pictures to document all the damage, but do not enter the house if it is unsafe.
Getting your claim check quickly will allow you to be able to move forward with whatever you plan to do. If you want to sell your tornado damaged property, you have two main options. You can repair the home and list it on the open market or you can sell it “As-Is.”
Should I Fix My Tornado Damaged House Before Selling?
The benefit of using the insurance money to repair your tornado damaged house is that it will greatly increase your buyer pool as well as get you a higher sales price. The downside is that it may take some time to finish the repairs. After all the repairs are done, you’ll still need to list it on the market and go through the selling process of offers, counter-offers, inspections, appraisals, etc.
Many homeowners who have already been displaced don’t want to wait that long before they can finally sell and get back to normal. So what do you do if you don’t want to wait that long to sell your home hit by a tornado?
How Do I Sell My Tornado Damaged House As-Is?
In many cases, it can be faster and easier to keep the insurance money and sell the house “As-Is” (be sure to pay off the mortgage if there is one). The combined proceeds of doing this can often equal what the house would have sold for at full market value without any tornado damage. This is often the best scenario as it can allow you to buy a new home and start your new life much faster.
The first step in selling your home “As-Is” will be to find the right buyer who is willing to take on the risk. Homes hit by tornadoes can have extensive damage and be difficult to repair, but there are home buyers who specialize in these type of situations. The great thing about selling your house “As-Is” is that you don’t have to fix anything. The buyer takes on all the risk.
