Determine whether it’s the right time to sell.

There are several factors to consider and some important questions to ask yourself. What’s the current market like? Do changing circumstances mean your house doesn’t fit your lifestyle? Can you no longer afford the mortgage or the upkeep?

Decide how to sell your house.

There are three main ways to sell your house. You can go the traditional route and list it with a real estate agent, or you can sell it yourself, which is a process called for sale by owner (FSBO). The third option is to sell to a cash home buyer like We Buy Ugly Houses.

Prepare your house for sale.

Check your house for areas that may need improvements or repairs. Decide what renovations or changes you want to make, and which ones fit your budget. If certain repairs or updates are too costly or time-consuming, consider selling your house “as is” to We Buy Ugly Houses.
