My sister was telling me one day that she was
interested in a home that was going to be auctioned off.
I wanted to see what it looked like now because I could remember driving by it as a kid. I could remember it always looking nice and being big. I wondered if it had been improved since I had seen it.
She told me the website she found it on and I went to look at the pictures of it.
I absolutely loved it and told her that she should definitely bid on the home. While I was on the website, I searched around for other properties in the area that were going to be auctioned off.
I knew people that talked about getting homes cheap at auctions like these and my husband and I had talked about buying a rental property so we could make some extra money.
I found a few homes in the area that were going to be auctioned off and one of them was along the river. It looked like it needed a good bit of work done to it and we wouldn’t be able to see it until the day of the auction.
I showed my husband this home I found and asked him if he wanted to go to the auction for it. We had money in our savings that we could use to pay for it if the price was right. He said we could look at it and I told him when the auction was.
The day of the auction came and we went and looked at the home.
We were able to walk through it to see all the work that needed done. We agreed that we would be able to fix it up and rent it out. Depending on how cheap we could get it, we both thought it would be a great option.
There was only a few other people there that were interested in the home and after seeing it one of them was no longer interested. This left us and another person to bid on it.
We were so excited to get this home for a great price to fix up and rent out. We ended up bidding it up to $14,000 and that’s what we paid in cash for it. We would need to put more into it to fix it up, but this price was really great.
We started working on the home and it seemed like as soon as we fixed one thing, the next project was even bigger. We put it off for awhile and then decided that we were in over our heads with the work that needed to be done. I wanted to sell this house and sell it fast.
I went online and searched sell my home now Portland.
I wanted to find a company that would buy it up quickly. I had heard about these companies and thought it would be the best way to get rid of it rather than selling it as is to a buyer.
I found a few companies when I searched this and decided to give them a call to see what they could tell me. I found a company and was able to sell my home now Portland with ease.
They were able to complete the whole transaction within just a few days and take this home off of our hands. They paid us cash for the home and I was thankful I was able to sell my home now Portland area.
