What if my house needs work?

Do I need to do any repairs or clean-up before you come to look at my house?


If we get to the point where CincyBuyer is coming to have a look at your house in person, relax!

Remember, we buy houses in 'as-is' condition, which means we are trained to see the potential in any property --- whether it needs minor clean-up & repairs or major renovations.

So, when we are coming to view your property, the last thing on your mind should be repairs or clean-up.

We have our own teams of clean-up specialists, as well as contractors for everything from light paint jobs to total overhauls & major renovations.


What Are You Checking For When I Sell My House As Is?

Our main purpose for viewing your house will be to examine the property's foundation, structure, and major systems:

  • electric,
  • plumbing,
  • furnace,
  • roof,
  • etc.

The cleanliness (or messiness) of the property will not affect our ability to examine these key factors.

Plus, any clean-up you're considering would have little to no effect on how we perceive the major structural & systemic elements of the property.

Any repairs you may be thinking about are unlikely to "pay for themselves" in terms of an increase in our offered price (if they'd increase it at all).

In other words: we buy houses 'as-is' ... so feel free to leave your house 'as-is.'

The only thing you need to worry about is taking everything from the house you personally would like to keep. Everything else, you can leave to us.
