How to Sell Your Home As-Is in Florida

The process of selling a house as-is can be unfamiliar territory for home sellers but using an agent to sell your home as-is in the Treasure Coast of Florida is a process that we walk you through when you choose to list your home with us.

You can choose a home-buying company that will offer you all cash for your as-is home.

Or you could choose to list your as-is property with a Florida real estate agent like us.

Let us address common questions you as a home seller might be facing and shed light on the intricacies of selling your home as-is in Port St Lucie, Florida before you decide to work with a real estate agent like us.

How Does Selling Your Home As-Is Work?

Selling a house as-is in Florida essentially means offering the property in its current condition, without making any repairs or improvements.

This approach can be a lifeline for homeowners dealing with significant repair needs or those looking for a quick sale.

For example, one of our investors bought a listed home that was as-is.  It needed more than $50,000 in repairs.  The out-of-state homeowner was not ready to spend that kind of money or invest the time.  The homeowner listed the as-is house with a real estate agent.

Our investor used our team to submit an as-is purchase offer, which was accepted. The investor bought it as-is.

Like this homeowner, when you list your home with a Florida real estate agent, most purchase offers that you receive will be on a Florida “As-Is” Contract.   

You are not obligated for any repairs requested by the buyer, you are selling the house as-is. 

In our experience, many home sellers will choose to make some requested repairs to keep the contract moving toward closing, rather than lose time and more days on the market.

Our Casas De Walker real estate team understands that every home has a unique story, and we’re here to help you sell it in its current condition.

Can You Sell Your House As-Is in Florida?

Absolutely! Florida allows homeowners to sell their properties as-is. This flexibility is advantageous for those who want to streamline the selling process without the hassle of extensive renovations.

If you choose to list your home with a real estate agent team like Casas De Walker, you will find that we specialize in facilitating these transactions, ensuring a smooth and efficient experience for sellers.  Listing an as-is home will get you price and convenience over speed.

The professional home-buying companies who offer you cash and fast close will also accept your home as-is.  They offer convenience and speed, rather than the best price.

What is a Florida As-Is Real Estate Contract?

The as-is real estate contract in Florida is a legal document outlining the terms and conditions of selling a property without the seller making any repairs.

It’s a pre-printed offer to purchase that most real estate agent assisted transactions in Florida will use when making an offer on a home.

During the inspection period, a potential buyer’s inspector might find some items that suggest a repair is needed.  The buyer might ask you for some repairs.  The as-is purchase agreement is clear that you don’t have to fix anything.  However, the buyer has the right to cancel the agreement during that inspection period.

In our experience, we find that many of our home sellers, though under no obligation will accept some repair and credit negotiations to the satisfaction of buyer and seller.  This continues the transaction moving forward.

We have expertise in navigating these contracts, ensuring that your interests to sell your as-is home are protected throughout the transaction.

Should I List My Home With an Agent or Sell to a We Buy Houses Company?

This is a common dilemma for homeowners.

Listing your home with a real estate agent can provide exposure to a broader audience, but it often comes with the expectation of making repairs or days on the market for the right buyer to make an offer.  You will likely get the highest market price and the convenience of a guide walking you through the transaction.

On the other hand, selling to a “We Buy Houses” company offers a quick and hassle-free solution. They usually purchase your home as-is, cover all the closing costs, and close on a date of your choosing.   They give you speed and convenience.  You will not likely get the highest price that the open market will bring you.  It is also possible that your contract might be assigned to another buyer for thousands more. 

We have been on both sides of this question to sell a home as is.

We have gone the route of the cash-only home-buying company for two of our home sales in another state.  We choose speed and convenience, rather than the highest price. 

We have also listed homes for sale with real estate agents in another state to get the highest price.

Explore your options and decide what aligns best with your needs.
