30 Jun Anyone ever sold a home “as is?” What does that mean to you?
My mother passed back in February, and my brother and I are trying to sell the home. However, we’re conflicted on how to approach it. He wants to sell it “as is,” but I think we need to empty the place and put a couple thousand into it so that it might sell quicker.
The house is about 20 years old and in relatively good shape. My brother seems to think that if we leave the furniture in it and not worry about some of those spots that need to be painted or patched. I’m kind of leaning the other way. Get stuff out. Replace the carpet. Patch and paint.
We’re not terribly concerned about the price. We’re more concerned about running out of money for the mortgage.
