5 Misconceptions People Have About Owning A House They Don’t Want In Phoenix

Owning a house you don’t want in Phoenix can hold you back in many ways. Learn how in our latest post!

Many people hold on to an unwanted property, not realizing what it is really costing them. Between the financial aspect, the frustrations, and the missed opportunity costs, owning the wrong home is likely setting you back in ways you haven’t even thought about. Below, we discuss 5 common misconceptions people have about owning the wrong real estate in Phoenix.

You Won’t Be Able To Find A Buyer

Many people who feel stuck or burdened by an unwanted house, hold on to it for longer than they should because they don’t think anyone else will want to buy it. However, there are typically investors and those looking for a fixer-upper who are looking for a property just like yours. As they say, one mans trash is another man’s treasure. Don’t assume you won’t get a great price for the property until you put yourself out there. You can start with a free, no-obligation offer from The Trusted Home Buyer!

You Won’t Be Able To Get A Great Price

If you aren’t a fan of the house yourself, you may believe others won’t be either. You may have convinced yourself that just because the house isn’t the prettiest on the block, that you won’t be able to get a good price. This, however, is not the case. When you find the right buyer for your home, they won’t try to nickel and dime you. Professional home buyers such as The Trusted Home Buyer will ALWAYS pay you a fair price no matter the condition of the property or the situation you are in.

One Day They’ll Fix It

So many people hold on to a property with the intent to fix it up, however, in the end, they never do. Instead, the basement will sit half-finished for another 5 years, the kitchen will remain dark and cramped, and the needed repairs will go undone. If you are really going to fix it, you would have already. If you are solely holding onto a property for what it maybe one day, you might want to find a house that is already what you are looking for in a home.

The Value Will Go Up

Sure, over time property values tend to rise, however, this isn’t always the case. When the markets are unstable, homeowners must be aware that there is potential for their property value to drop dramatically at any time. There isn’t anything worse than owning the wrong property, hoping the value will rise, only to find yourself with a property that is worth less than when you bought it. If you feel like you are stuck with the wrong house, the time to sell it is now!

They’ll Get Used To It

While you might get used to some of the problems, they will most likely just continue to drive you crazy. Frankly, that’s no way to live. Worrying about your property on a regular basis, paying for repairs, and dealing with problem after problem isn’t fun for anybody. While you might get used to some things, the question is, do you really want to? You don’t have to settle. You can liquidate your unwanted property, turn it into cash, and move-on to a house that makes more sense for your current situation.

If you own a house you aren’t completely satisfied with, don’t trick yourself into thinking it is what you should settle for. There is no rule that says you need to own the house forever.
