How to Sell a Code Violated House or One That’s In Need of Major Repairs

If your property needs repairs, you may have experienced that it is much harder to sell in this market. Sometimes it can even be impossible to find a buyer, because lenders will not approve a loan on a property that needs excessive repairs or is not to code.

And more often than not, buyers are simply picky, because they have so many properties to choose from if they are qualified to buy.

When you don’t have the means or the time to fix the property before putting it on the market, it can become unmarketable. With lending standards as tight as they are, if you have even so much as a broken door knob, you may be trying to market the unmarketable.

In some cases, if the city or county red-tags the house you can be subject to fines or even lose the property altogether if you don’t take care of the problems.

If you are in that situation, don’t despair – you are not alone! Let your fixup be our burden. We are in a position to pay cash for your property and deal with any repairs after we close and you got your money. Why not get started today and see if your property can qualify for our buying criteria!

We buy houses no matter the condition or circumstance.

Discover How You Can Sell Your Home Even If:


Q: Can you sell a house with code violations?

A: Technically you can, as long as there are no clear code violations that present any danger to the home. However, the chance of selling a house with code violations in the open market is as narrow as it gets. There are a lot of fresh properties listed and a buyer won’t invite hassles in 99 times out of 100.

However, we’ve got your back. Here at Victor Bravo, we buy houses with code violations and take care of them later by ourselves. The hassle’s on us, you get paid and run with your money.


Q: Can you sell a house with unpermitted work?

A: Unpermitted work struggle is real. On average, at random, 30 to 40 percent of the listed houses have some form of unpermitted work which scares away many potential buyers. You can skip the hassles of getting retroactive permits and renovating your house if you do business with us, though, because we’ll buy it as is.


Q: Can you sell a house with problems?

A: Yes, on paper, you can. But the chances of it getting sold are so narrow. On top of that, even if you manage to sell it, you’ll be getting a lot less amount of money than deserved, because the buyer will take advantage of your situation - it is what it is.

Consider Victor Bravo if you don’t want to be taken advantage of.
