We Buy Damaged Houses As-Is
Selling a damaged house in a competitive market can be next to impossible. Many buyers or realtors may not even look at your house if they have to spend extra money fixing it. Some buyers may require you to fix the house before they sign the contract. Repairs can cost you thousands of dollars and delay selling your house.
Fortunately, there is a solution. Ernest Buys Homes can buy your house as-is. You make no repairs or upgrades. You don’t have to schedule an appraisal or inspection to get approval to sell the house. We can assess your property, make a fair offer, and close the sale quickly. Before you contact the realtor, call Ernest Buys Homes at and get a fast cash offer.

What is a Damaged House?
A damaged house is not the same as a house that has a few cosmetic issues. For instance, your house may need new flooring, a paint job, or a countertop replacement. While these upgrades will certainly make your house more sellable, they may not address deeper issues that can make it impossible to sell the property.
A damaged house has severe issues such as
- Structural damage throughout the house
- System damage such as plumbing or wiring
- State or local safety code violations
- Major roof damage
- Destruction from natural disaster, vandalism, or fire
- An outdated house that needs major upgrades
The two leading causes of damage are natural disasters and neglect. A home may have sustained serious damage from a tornado or flooding. Or, the house may have received little to no maintenance over the years. The bottom line is that the house is too old or too damaged to live in as-is. These types of properties are difficult to sell because it takes considerable effort and money to repair them.
What Are the Advantages of a Home Cash Offer?
There are several advantages to selling your damaged house for cash instead of attempting a traditional sale.
Sell Your House Faster
On average, it takes 60 to 90 days to sell a house the traditional way. That’s just the beginning. Home improvement projects can also take several weeks. Closing a sale can take up to 45 days. If you are trying to sell a damaged house, a cash sale can put you ahead of the process so that you can get rid of your property and move on.
Save Money in the Process
If you can’t afford to repair a damaged house, you probably can’t afford to fork over thousands of dollars in realtor commissions, closing costs, inspections, fees, repairs, and upgrades. A home cash sale allows you to sell your house fast without incurring selling expenses, particularly costs that would go to restoring your home.
Avoid the Hassle of a Normal Sale
Trying to sell your damaged house as-is can be stressful. When you sell your house as-is for cash, you avoid all the needless steps such as finding a realtor, listing the house, making repairs, showing the house, negotiating with buyers, and closing the sale. We simplify the process by eliminating all these steps. You sell your house and walk away with no strings attached.
