Selling A Washington Home With Fire Damage

Navigating the process of selling a house after a fire

It can be difficult to sell a Washington house that has been damaged by fire.

Not only do you have to deal with the emotional stress of the fire itself, but also with the financial loss it may have caused. However, there are ways to maximize your profits when selling a fire damaged house.

The first step is to assess the damage. Hire a professional home inspector or contractor to determine the extent of the damage and what repairs are needed. It is important to get an accurate estimate of the repair costs, as this will help you determine the value of your property.

Once you have a good understanding of the repair costs, it’s time to consider your options. You can either make the necessary repairs before selling the house, or sell it as-is to a cash home buyer who specializes in buying fire damaged properties. Selling the house as-is may be a more attractive option if you do not have the financial means to make the necessary repairs.

Frequently asked questions

An all-cash deal enables us to buy your home without financing. To close, we typically transfer funds electronically or with a cashier’s check.

Because a lender isn’t involved, we’re able to keep closing timelines brief. Once we’re under contract, the sale can close in as fast as a week — just enough time for the title and escrow companies to clear any liens, etc.  

We look at the location of the property, the current condition, and values of comparable houses sold in the area recently.

There is absolutely no obligation for you. Once you tell us a bit about your property and situation, we’ll make you an all-cash offer that’s fair for you and fair for us. From there, it’s 100% your decision on whether or not you’d like to sell your house to us.
