How much do you lose selling a house as-is?
How much you’ll lose selling as-is will vary significantly from home to home, but we can look at averages to give you an idea of the significance.
Curbio takes on projects of all sizes. From simple paint and repair projects to full rehabs, we do it all. Across our projects, we achieve an average return of 113% on project costs. For projects focused on basic repairs and touch-ups (between $5k-$10k), sellers average $5,578 in net profit. For refreshes (projects costing $15k-$50k), sellers average $32,480 in net profit. Finally, for renovations (projects that cost over $50k), sellers average $57,433 in net profit. No matter how you dice the numbers, the bottom line is that by listing as-is, you’re choosing to leave thousands of dollars on the closing table.
But when you sell a house as-is, you lose more than money. You’ll also lose time. A home sold as-is will attract less buyers, which means it will take longer to receive an offer worth accepting. Once the offer is accepted, you can generally expect to see more delays caused by the inspection. Best case scenario: a bad inspection can cost you the time it takes to tend to post-inspection, punchlist repairs. Worst case scenario: The inspection uncovers deal breakers that cause the buyers to pull their offer, ultimately requiring you to put the home back on the market and costing you weeks. Taking care of repairs after the inspection can cost time and stress. Of course, if you’re ever stuck in this situation, Curbio can help! We also tackle post-inspection repairs quickly to prevent delays to closing.
