I did and boy did i get ripped off . I was selling my house and had a sign up and they stopped by. they were the only ones that stopped by. My house was in a neighborhood that was going to hell. To make a long story short i got 20,000.00 for a 60,000.00. Well they went to redesigning it and sold it for 90,000.00. In a ratty neighborhood who would pay 90,000.00? I was so p---- i never drove in that neighborhood again. And will never again. They are crooks and I hope they get what is coming to them.

They are reliable. They screw you, but they are honest about it.

They will pay you 60% of the appraised value of your house, in cash. They can close in a week. If you do not have enough equity to sell it that low you can not utilize their "service".

"we buy ugly houses"-have any of you done business with "the ugly house people"? i`m thinking of selling.

My house needs some repair work-nothing drastic, but more than i can take on myself. is it best to hire someone to do the work or try to sell "as is"? i`m located in minneapolis, minnesota.

They prey on homeowners who have not kept their homes in good repair. it's a rip off. you would be better off fixing your home up yourself and selling it.

They will probably come in with a pretty low offer based on their pricing models. You could go with a discount broker, but they won't do much more than list it for you.

Find a good, aggressive agent and price it very competitively is my only advice.

I am considering calling that "We buy Ugly Houses" company to sell my house. Has anyone ever used them before?

Is it worth it?

They will low-ball you.

I used to be a real estate agent in Kansas City metro, and I have relatives that are investors. They will want to "flip" your house.

They will offer you very little, put some work into it (fresh paint, cosmetic work, new fixtures and carpet), and then charge the next guy thousands more than it is worth.

It is because of the real estate market being over-saturated with people like that that the real estate bubble burst a couple of years ago, resulting in increased bankruptcies and foreclosures.

So be careful.

Get your house appraised. Run some comps (house comparisons with similar features, etc.)

I don't know where you live or what your current house is like, but I could run some comps for you if you want.

Has anyone ever heard of the " We buy ugly houses" people? How does that work?

I know they say they give you retail minus what it would cost to renovate, but what is retail, is that what I paid or how muc hits worth now?

These places all advertise that they buy the house for more money, but in point of fact you will be lucky if they offer more than sixty percent of market value. That's just the way it is. Unless you're less than thirty days from losing the property, try offering it for sale at 80 to 90 percent of market value. Talk to a good listing agent. Even in this market, you should get offers.
