Why Buy Ugly Houses?

Maybe you have seen the advertisements for a company that buys ugly houses.

Do you ever ask why a real estate company would buy ugly houses?

Alpha Dog Investments buys houses in any condition, so we don’t call the houses we buy ugly. Every house has some value to us.

The types of houses we buy that may be considered ugly are categorized in different ways by our company.

Your house is valuable to us! We solve real estate problems and our company is interested in each of these houses.

The Fixer Upper House

This type of house may actually look nice cosmetically, but when you look closer, it needs some repairs before it is ready to be marketed to the typical buyer for full retail price. The fixer upper may need a lot of small items repaired. Maybe a handyman tried making some improvements here and there, but didn’t do a good job.

The Outdated House

The outdated house may be properly maintained, very clean, and looks great. The house may even have a new roof, new furnace, new hot water heater and new carpet.

But it has outdated features, such as old style kitchen cabinets, undesirable bathroom tile colors, old lighting fixtures, cheap looking contractor grade door knobs, etc. In order for this house to fetch the highest retail price on the open market to the typical buyer, it must be renovated with updated features.

Distressed House in Disrepair

This is a house with neglected maintenance.

It usually has not be maintained for years and may have structural problems, missing pipes, faulty electric lines, holes in walls, broken or boarded up windows, and other issues such as fire, flooding, or foundation damage.

Some may even believe this type of house should be demolished but our company can normally salvage this type of house and bring it back to life with a full renovation.

The Financially Distressed House

This house may be in great condition but the owners are distressed financially. This house may soon suffer from lack of maintenance.

The owners may not be able to keep up with the mortgage payments. It’s possible that the house will go into foreclosure unless the owners can avoid it with a lender approved short sale.
