A few years ago I had a small kitchen fire occur that completely wrecked one of the walls.
Around the time I was looking at purchasing another home.
I didn’t want to invest cash into getting that house back to normal. The fire disfigurement was pretty bad and I would have needed to contact a builder, plumbing, electrician and consult a Heating, Ventilation, and A/C tech. Instead I just obtained my other house and ignored the fire disfigurement one. Eventually I started worrying about it being condemned. Houses don’t get better with age after all. I started talking to real estate agents about selling it. They all said the same thing. I needed to repair the fire disfigurement before it hit the market. I had to do a bunch of work and invest in a locale I no longer wanted. I also had to fork over real estate gees and closing costs when the end result happened. No thank you. So I researched Jacksinville, Florida real estate clients that specified cash for house deals. I found a northeast Florida real estate buyer that was willing to take my fire disfigurement house off my hands. The girl didn’t have me do any work at all. I could just sell my fire disfigurement house fast for cash. I just got a price point, signed, and then handed over the papers. It was self-explanatory. Since I didn’t need the cash that bad, anything I got felt like a bonus. I am genuinely cheerful that I got away with doing no work after that fire.
