Although renting out a townhouse can be a lucrative endeavor, sometimes the work involved just gets to be too much and you want to get it off your hands. Unfortunately, most of the time this involves cleaning the townhouse out and renovating it, both of which can be very costly. Amanda had a townhouse in Burke, VA that she had plans to renovate, but would rather have sold it as-is.
In early August, Amanda reached out and let us know that she had a rental property she was trying to sell. She informed us that she had plans to renovate, and was currently getting quotes for all of the work. However, she believed the repairs would add up to around $25,000 when all was said and done.She told us the amount that she wanted for the property and agreed that the price she wanted sounded fair. We set up an appointment that was convenient for her to inspect the home.
She met us a week later to let us view the property.
After completing our walkthrough, we determined that the repairs would actually be around the $40,000 level, and made her our official offer. She decided that it wasn’t enough and would explore her other options. We informed her that our offer still stood, and she should contact us again if she changed her mind or if anything else changed on her end.
A few days later she emailed us again with a lowered price, but was still a bit too pricey. We gave her our top dollar offer given the cost of the repairs that we would have to perform, and gave her a few more days to think about it – we never pressure sellers to sell. She then contacted us and said she would accept the offer. We immediately got started on obtaining the title and proper paperwork, and sent her the contract. She signed and sent it back, and about a week later we had purchased her townhouse.
