    Sell Your Vacant House To Us

    Some may describe leaving a house vacant as obscene and wasteful. While others believe it harbors a lot of crimes. Besides criminals, another set of people who seek shelter in vacant homes is squatters. Sometime in 2018, a developer won a court case claiming ownership of an abandoned Sydney house relying on squatters’ rights.  Shortly after, he made a windfall off the house when he sold it for $1.4 Million. Yep! You read that right.

    Maybe having squatters on your property isn’t as harmless as you thought! The worst part is getting rid of them isn’t a walk in the park. If you plan to sell your vacant home with squatters, we’ll buy it. Squatters can be a lot to handle. But luckily for you, we thrive on complicated housing situations. True to our words, we’ll help you “sell my house fast” unconditionally.

    Risks of selling a squattered property

    Before deciding on a home-selling method for your squatter house, you should understand the risks. Four main risk factors loom while selling such houses.

    An abandoned house often has cosmetic or structural issues. But with squatters camping there, the condition has probably escalated. Squatter houses are often a den for drug dealings, unhygienic, vandalized, and littered with rubbish. To sell the house on the open market, you may have to bear the cost of a professional cleaner and repairs.

    Yes, a section of the law serves as the light at the end of a tunnel for squatters. You may be shocked to realize squatters have some rights– but yes, they do.  So, there’s a slight possibility that the squatter has a right to claim your house according to the adverse possession law. Not a desirable situation, hun? That is more reason you should act fast. Consult a real estate expert to ensure your home is either free from squatters or not claimable by the same.

    Squatter houses aren’t 100% safe until sanitary and security measures have been taken. A squatter could feel threatened during an unexpected showing and attack a prospective buyer. Besides, cleaning after a squatter could expose you to health issues due to poor hygiene. 

    That’s why you have to take precautions before selling a squattered home. Adequate preventive measures can protect you from getting sued for personal injury caused on your property! 

    You are liable to disclose any information that could affect a prospective buyer’s decision to buy. Whether it’s about squatters or any other thing. However, disclosure laws differ in different jurisdictions. We suggest you familiarize yourself with the law’s position on disclosure in California.

    We’ve established that a squatter property is prone to damage. What happens if the property gets more damaged just before closing? Who bears the responsibility? Depending on the level of damage and the home selling option, such an occurrence can end the deal or affect the price. We Buy Houses California For Cash buys houses as-is, regardless of the condition. Hence, we always negotiate based on what we can see. New damage doesn’t invalidate our deal! We know just how to handle such situations. But the chances of this happening are slim because we’ll buy your home within a week! In no time, the squatters will be our problem– not yours.

    A cash home buyer is just one of the selling options available to a homeowner with squatters. If you are planning to sell a squatter home, you may consider these home-selling options:

    This has got to be one of the most exhausting options. Although challenging, you can evict squatters with the help of law enforcement agents. But good luck with the mess they left behind and the maintenance troubles. That’s an entirely different ball game. You’d incur expenses on trash removal and dumpsters. That’s besides the structural and cosmetic repairs the house probably requires. Moreover, the environment might require some pest control and intense yard work. 

    Some real estate agents provide concierge services for hoarder houses and homes in terrible conditions. They fund the cleaning and repairs and rely on getting additional commissions for the expenses. This is a more hassle-free option, but it could be agonizingly slow. Another major catch is that only a few realtors offer concierge services.
