Home outdated? Tens of thousands in repairs? We can help.
It may have been decades since you first moved into your house. You may have gotten married, had children, raised them, and now, they are out of the nest. You may see nothing wrong with continuing to live in your home, however, if you are an adventurous spirit, you may want more from life than simply staying in the same house as you continue to age. If you are one of these people, you may be wondering if you should sell your home or how much it might be worth in the market, especially if you have updated it since you moved in. Below, we share why you should sell your outdated home.
The foundation of your house ensures structural integrity. However, over time, water may seep in through the concrete and eventually weaken the foundation of your home. It is not unusual to experience uneven floors and jammed doors where the foundation has settled. Sometimes these are mere inconveniences and other times they can be serious problems where fixing them is required so your basement wall doesn’t collapse.
Foundation repairs are far from cheap. A compromised foundation may cost as little as a few thousand dollars up to $50,000 or more depending on the severity. Steel I-beams, wall anchors, and tie backs and cost easily $5,000 each and are typically spaced every 10 feet along the cracking wall. Instead of investing in such an expensive repair, if you plan on moving out, you can choose to sell your house and avoid this unprecedented repair altogether.
The world is always changing, and so is the construction landscape. Homes built in the last few years do not look like those made a few decades ago and building techniques and codes change change too.
If your home is old and you’d like to make some updates, the new codes may impact how you can remodel, repair or rebuild it. For example, if your home is old enough to have knob and tube wiring, if you do as much as open up the walls and take down the drywall, depending on the municipality, you may be required to rewire your entire house because the old electrical was exposed. That could be a quick $5-10,000 upgrade you weren’t expecting during your home remodeling project.
Lead Paint, Water or Mold Damage
Water and mold damage present major health risks. While it may not look like a big deal initially, these problems always need to be solved to prevent them from becoming bigger issues, especially if you or your family members suffer from respiratory problems.
Furthermore, lead paint is likely to be present in your home if it was built before 1978, when the federal government had not yet banned the substance. Well-covered lead paint may not be a problem, however, deteriorating lead-based paint is a hazard and requires special contractor and permitting.
Instead of engaging in extensive, expensive repairs, you might want to choose to sell your home instead.
Damage From Natural Disasters or Fires
Some states such as California, Florida, Colorado, North Carolina, and Louisiana are more prone to natural disasters such as floods and storms, or worse, devastating tornadoes and hurricanes. House fires can also cause significant damage both by the first itself and sometimes worse, the smoke.

Outdated Kitchens, Bathrooms, and Home Appliances Like HVAC
Updating your home to the current year standards is not easy feat. Besides picking out all the materials for the new design, you have to hire reliable contractors and often live through the remodeling process. Some people love these projects and some become nightmares when contractors no-show, projects are delayed, and you’re living in a home where the heat isn’t working and winter is coming.

- Does your bathroom have old purple tile and the sink to match? We’ve replaced that before.
