Do you need to sell a house that needs a retaining wall, but you are waiting until you get things “fixed up”? Many of the sellers we talk to want to sell, but they have been told that until they make the necessary repairs that they just can’t sell it. This could not be further from the truth.
We bought the house below over at 12713 E 62nd Court in Kansas City Missouri. Here we had your typical repairs: replace the roof, replace the furnace and air, paint inside and out, replace the carpeting, etc. But we had an unusual repair in that we had to replace most of the driveway, many of the sidewalks, rebuild the deck and we had to rebuild the back yard as the railroad tie retaining wall was sliding down the hill.
We had to remove the old wall and we replaced it with those giant concrete blocks that are used in retaining walls.
NOT PENALIZED FOR NOT GETTING EVERYTHING CLEANED OUT OF THE HOUSE
I liked the fact that I wasn’t penalized or felt pressure for not getting everything cleaned out of the house. There was over 40 years and three families’ worth of treasure stored in the house, making me feel that the challenge of cleaning it was going to be impossible. I did what I could and you never hesitated in telling me that it’s ok to leave the rest behind.
