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.
We didn’t have to finish cleaning out the house, we didn’t have to make any repairs, and no more going to mow the yard.
We got a letter from Kim about Dad’s house a few months ago after one of our garage sales. Her son Scott called us back, asked a few questions, looked at our house, and made an offer. My brothers had been trying to fix it up to sell for almost a year . . . that was not going well. We took Scott’s offer, he made the process very easy and convenient, we could even sign things via email. We didn’t have to finish cleaning out the house, we didn’t have to make any repairs, and no more going to mow the yard.
I highly recommend giving Kim or Scott a call, you will be glad you did.
