Selling a House As-Is

What Does ‘Sold As-Is’ Mean?

Sellers list their homes for sale as-is when they don’t want to do any repairs before closing. It means there are no guarantees from the seller that everything’s in working condition, and they’re not required to provide a Seller’s Disclosure.

What should you not fix when selling a house?

Your Do-Not-Fix list

Is it bad to sell your house as is?

Selling a house as-is isn’t necessarily bad or good. It does come with potential upsides and downsides:

Pros

  • A faster path to closing – Rather than waiting for repairs to be finished, you can immediately put your house up for sale. Assuming your buyer has the funds (or access to a loan), you’ll be able to speed to the finish line.
  • Fewer costs to sell – While some sellers pay to stage their homes and budget extra money for upgrades to make a property look perfect, selling a house as-is means less pressure on your bank account.

Cons

  • Lower selling price – You’ll save money on the front end by skipping the repairs, but an as-is listing could attract bargain-hungry buyers or investors looking for a serious deal.
  • Fewer interested buyers – If you’re selling your house as-is, you might not get a big crowd or lots of interest, depending on how hot your market is. The “as-is” designation can be a red flag and cause some buyers to assume there’s something dreadfully wrong with the home.
  • Potential challenges with securing a mortgage on the buyer’s end – The buyer will no doubt pay for a home inspection, and if they’re looking for approval for a mortgage, most lenders will insist that a home not have structural, safety or health issues before they can lend money on it. Even if the buyer wants the property, the lender needs to sign off, too.
