We recently received a call from one of our clients that was interested in putting her home on the market. The home had been a rental for about 20 years but was still in relatively good condition. One of her friends indicated to her that she should sell the property "as-is" so she would not have to worry about fixing any repairs, etc to the home. She asked me if I thought this was a good idea and I said buyers can look at this one of two ways. First, when a home is being advertised for sale in "as-is" condition some buyers believe that the home will need a lot of work which the owner is not willing to do. I have to admit when I hear that phrase I often wonder myself if there are any repairs that need to be made. There is another set of buyers that just realize that there may not be a lot wrong with the home but the owner doesn't want to deal with any repair requests and that's why they are selling it as-is. My client asked me for my recommendation if she sell it in this manner and this is what I told her.
I recommended that since the home is in good condition I would not advertise the home being sold as-is. I said that it is a very hot market right now and you can almost get away with telling people it's as-is and most buyers would not think twice about it since they are eager to buy a home. I explained that the word as-is is not really necessary since you can verbally tell buyers that the owner is not willing to do any repairs if any come up. With that being said there is a case for this phrase to be used and many sellers use this when selling a home. The Carlsbad real estate market like other beach towns here in Southern California has very low inventory so buyers are willing to put up with a lot just to get the home. Just because you see a home being advertised in this manner don't automatically assume that there are a lot of repairs needed. We always recommend talking with your real estate agent to see if they can find out what repairs if any need to be made. We have gathered the current list of Carlsbad homes that are being advertised in being sold in as-is condition. Please contact any of our local agents for more information on any of these properties at 760-710-0268.
