Thinking of downsizing your house?

There can benefits to downsizing.

There are many reasons that downsizing may be right for you. You may have too much space now that the kids have left the house, or you’re retiring, or the payments have become overwhelming. One advantage of downsizing is less responsibility. A smaller home means less to care for. Cleaning, repairs, and yard work can be more manageable and less costly in a smaller house.

Ready to start a new chapter when you retire?

When it’s time to scale back from working, you may want to put less time, money, and effort into your house. Downsizing can help you do just that. Or maybe you’re ready for a complete change of scenery—the cool mountains and coastlines of the Northwest, the forests of Vermont, the warm and dry climates of New Mexico, or the easy lifestyle of the Southeastern beaches.

We Buy Ugly Houses® can buy your home exactly “as is,” no repairs or cleaning needed, and we pay all cash and close fast—in as little as three weeks, or later, if that’s convenient for you.

Downsizing the family home means downsizing responsibilities.

It’s simple—less home means less to care for. Cleaning, repairs, yard work, furniture can all get much simpler and less costly when you move to a smaller home.

Wondering when should you downsize your house? And how you’ll ever sell the one you’re in?

As we mentioned earlier, downsizing can be brought on by financial concerns, an empty nest, retirement or other factors. As welcome as the lifestyle change might be, making it a reality has a potentially major obstacle—selling your present house.

You’ve probably been through this before—making long-postponed repairs, cleaning like never before, hiring a real estate agent, clearing out of the house to make way for showings, leaving it on the market for an uncertain period of time—it can be a lot of upfront cost and take weeks or months.

We Buy Ugly Houses® can buy your home exactly as it is, no repairs or cleaning needed, and we pay all cash and close fast—in as little as three weeks or when it works for you. Plus, we don’t charge commissions, and we pay typical closing costs. Think of all the time and money that can save you. There’s no easier or quicker way to sell your house and get on with the next chapter in your life.

We’ll even buy it with the furniture and contents you want to leave behind so you don’t have to pack up and move them.

It won’t cost you any money and only about an hour or so of your time to find out how much cash we’ll pay you for your house. And you’ll be under no obligation to accept our offer, so you have nothing to lose but a house that’s standing between you and the life you want to enjoy.

Helping Mary and Coach find a smaller house for a better life.

How we sped up the downsizing process.

For 35 years, Mary and Coach enjoyed their family house, where they brought up their kids. When their children had kids of their own and moved to a different city, they began to consider the idea of selling their treasured house and moving closer to their kids and grandkids.

That house was full of love and memories. However, it also had a lot of maintenance and space they no longer needed. When they decided to exchange the memories of their past life for a future with their family, it was still hard to leave their house. But we made the sale easy.

One visit, a cash offer, a closing.

Mary and Coach met with their local We Buy Ugly Houses® property specialist who made a fair, all-cash offer on the first visit to the house. They accepted and signed the contract that day.

Mary said, “They made the process very easy and stress-free, working with our situation. They even changed the initial escrow date to accommodate the purchase of our new house in the Phoenix area.”

Mary and Coach appreciated that they were in good hands from the very beginning with buyers they could trust. They didn’t have to repair or clean anything, pay us a commission, or pay the typical closing costs. They didn’t even have to move anything in the house they no longer wanted. We Buy Ugly Houses® can take care of that, too.
