Sell the House on the Open Market
Trying to sell a house on the open market can be a time consuming and difficult task, trying to sell a hoarder’s house can be nearly impossible. In today’s world, most buyers begin their search by looking at interior and exterior pictures of the home online and it will most likely be impossible for you to take good pictures when the house is crammed full of stuff. You must overcome the busy lifestyle of the average buyer who is looking for homes that are in tip-top shape – they do not have the time or interest in buying a major repair project.
Another thing to keep in mind is that FHA, VA and most traditional lenders cannot loan on a property that fails an inspection. Realistically, if you want to sell the home the traditional method, you will need to clean, repair and upgrade the home.
