This is the story of Willie Roberson, who sold his property to 4 Brothers Buy Houses without having even one single in-person showing. Willie had a property that he had lived in or rented out for 30 years. The property wasn’t in great shape, but Willie wasn’t interested in having more repairs or expensive renovations. He was either going to sell the property or keep renting it out. 4 Brothers Buy Houses provided Willie with the perfect opportunity to sell his property without having to deal with real estate agents or showcasing the property to dozens of prospective buyers. Here is his story.
Willie Owned His Property For 30 Years
Willie had owned his Bouie property on Congressional Court for three decades. For the first 20 years, Willie lived in the property. After moving out, he decided to rent it out, and had been doing so for the past 10 years. The property started off in good condition, but it wore down over the years. Willie didn’t want to invest in costly repairs and renovations. That was fine for renting the property out, but he knew that if he wanted to do a traditional home sale, those would probably be a requirement to get buyer interest.
After Seeing An Ad On TV, Willie Decided To Reach Out
After his latest tenants moved out, Willie decided he wanted to sell if possible. He saw an ad on TV for 4 Brothers Buy Houses, and decided to make the call. Willie called on January 14th and talked to the 4 Brothers Buy Houses team. He got all of his questions about the sale answered via email and was ready to move forward with the sale.
Willie Was Able To Sell His Property Without An In-Person Showing
After the initial call on January 14th, it only took 10 more days for the sale agreement to be finalized. Both parties signed the agreement on January 24th, and title work went smoothly after that. Closing was finished on February 11th, less than a month after Willie’s initial call to 4 Brothers Buy Houses. Willie never had to have an in-person showing–he sent 4 Brothers Buy Houses photos of the property and that was all they needed.

Looking to paint your home? Maybe you just want to improve your property’s aesthetic. Maybe you want to improve your curb appeal for prospective buyers. Maybe the paint in your property is getting old and peeling. Either way, there are some things that you need to think about before you get started on the paint job. You need to consider whether you can paint the property on your own, how the current paint is holding up, and whether you’ll be doing the painting on the interior or the exterior. Here is a closer look at what you need to be thinking about.
Can You Paint The Property By Yourself?
This all comes down to the size and scale of the job. If you are painting a single room, or even just a few rooms in your property, you may be able to complete the entire project on your own. But if you want to paint the entire inside of your house, it may be better to call a professional painting company to work with you. The same goes for if you want to paint the exterior of your home. Exteriors tend to be more complicated because of the sheer size and because being outside exposes the paint to the elements. Going it alone may be cheaper, but if the job is large, it can cost you in the long run.
How Is The Current Paint Job Holding Up?
If your current paint is peeling, you may need to do significant prep work in order to get the surfaces ready. This may also require professional help if you don’t have the right tools, since you don’t want to damage the walls or have an uneven paint job. But if you are working on a new property where the paint is smooth and the surfaces are even, then you may be able to go it alone and handle painting by yourself.
Interior vs. Exterior Painting
When you are painting on the interior of your home, you don’t have to worry about the elements. That means no worrying about rain or wind or debris. When you are painting on the exterior of your home, those are all things that you need to be aware of. That is why exterior painting jobs often require professional help. Most times, individuals don’t have the knowledge or resources to keep their exterior paint safe from the elements. It is much easier for individuals to handle painting the interior of their properties.
Painting your property can be strenuous work. Especially in the summer months when the outside heat can take a toll on your body. If you don’t want to put in the work to paint your property, that doesn’t mean you can’t sell your home. You don’t have to hire a costly painting company either. You can sell your property to 4 Brothers Buy Houses for cash. Contact us today and we’ll provide you with a free, no obligation quote. You can sell at the time that works for you and your family.

Gardening can actually be a really great way to spend the spring and summer months. You get to be in the sun and get some exercise in while creating a beautiful landscape. There’s a wide range of personal benefits to starting a garden, but there are financial benefits as well. Homes with attractive gardens have higher curb appeal, and owners find that more prospective buyers are interested in their properties. Starting a garden isn’t for everyone, but it can be a great way to merge a hobby with the goal of selling your property at a higher valuation.
Gardens Can Improve Curb Appeal And Increase Interest In Your Property
Curb appeal is crucial when it comes to selling your property. If your home isn’t attractive from the curb, prospective buyers will keep driving. Since so much of the homebuying process is done online these days, you’ll need to make sure that you have attractive outdoor shots of your property. Having a beautiful garden in those shots can make your property that much more attractive to prospective buyers. You could work with a landscaping company, but you could also handle the gardening yourself and save some money.
Gardening Can Be A Great Hobby In The Spring And Summer Months
One of the reasons you may want to take up gardening may not even be about the financial reward of selling your home. You may just want to start a new hobby during the spring and summer months. Gardening is great for families because they get to plant something and see it grow over time. It also takes hard work–pulling out weeds and making sure that the mulch is replaced when need be. You may find yourself even growing fruits and vegetables to eat for later in the year.
You Can Establish An Outdoor Leisure Area
Gardens can be scenic for your outdoor leisure area. Make sure that your garden is visible from your patio, so that you can enjoy the view during the warm summer months. You may want to think about investing in some outdoor furniture so that you can drink some lemonade and read a book while the day goes by. The good thing is that outdoor leisure living spaces are increasingly popular with homebuyers as well.
Interested in selling your property but don’t want to go through all of the work to improve your curb appeal? If you aren’t interested in gardening to get your property ready for sale, don’t worry about it. You can still sell your property without learning how to plant new flowers outside. 4 Brothers Buy Houses will purchase your property cash. We’ll provide you with a free, no obligation quote. You won’t have to work with a real estate agent or deal with showcasing your property to prospective buyers who may or may not be interested. Call us today and get started selling your property on your terms.

The summer is almost here, and that means that if you are interested in selling your property you’ll need to start getting prepared. Summer is one of the busiest seasons for home sales because of the great weather, and because it is when most people take off from work. Selling in the summer months comes with a lot of competition from other sellers, so you’ll need to get your property ready to stand out from the crowd. Here is how you can do just that.
Think About Doing Maintenance In The Summer
During the summer months, you can get a wide range of deals and discounts on maintenance. That is because most maintenance is done during the winter months. Think about things like having your HVAC system, your plumbing, cleaning carpets, and even your gutters.
Keep Your AC Units Running Smoothly
Your air conditioner is key to staying cool during the summer months. If you are getting ready to sell, the last thing you need is your home to be extra hot during an open house with prospective buyers. Invest in a new AC system or repair your current one during the summer.
Start Thinking About Pest Control
Pests–especially insects–can really be a nuisance during the summer when it is warm. If you are worried about pests, you may want to think about spraying the outside of your home or making sure that windows and doors are sealed. If the problem is serious, you may need to call an exterminator to make sure that you don’t get an infestation that gets out of hand.
Keep The Grass And Shrubs Trimmed
Making sure that your grass and shrubs are trimmed is the best way to make sure that your property’s curb appeal stays where it needs to be. When the grass doesn’t get cut, prospective buyers are much less likely to stop and take a look. Make sure that you don’t let your yard grow out of control. That means either regularly doing the trimming yourself or hiring a landscaping company to do the work for you.
Getting your property ready for the summer months can take weeks. And handling any of the necessary repairs can get expensive rather quickly. These are all things that real estate agents will push you to do if you are looking to sell. If you aren’t interested in working on your yard or getting your air conditioner back up to speed, then you may want to think about selling your property to 4 Brothers Buy Houses. With 4 Brothers Buy Houses, you can sell your property without going through the frustration of the traditional sales process. We’ll provide you with a free, no obligation quote so that you can sell on your own timeline. Contact us today and we can get to work.

We’re in the middle of the spring, and that means focusing on spring cleaning and maintenance. This is especially key for those families who are looking to sell their properties in the coming months. You want to make sure that your property is looking top notch, and that starts with how you spruce up your home after the snow and sleet of the winter. Spring is the season for renewal, so here is how you can get your home back to feeling like it is full of vibrance and life:
Keep Both Sides Of The Windows Washed
Keeping your windows free of marks and smudges can actually go a long way towards improving your home’s appeal. Luckily, cleaning your windows is easy. You can make a solution with just water and vinegar. You can apply the solution to the interior and exterior of your windows and then rub it down with a sponge or cloth.
Consider Having The Carpets Deep Cleaned
Vacuuming is nice, but it doesn’t get all of the debris out of your carpet. Doing a deep cleaning once a year is great to make sure all of the spills, debris, and dust are fully removed from your carpet. You can either work with a carpet cleaning company or rent a carpet cleaner locally to get the clean your carpet deserves.
Check The Roof For Potential Damage From The Winter
Roof damage can get very expensive very fast. And it is most likely to occur during the winter months. Make sure that your roof doesn’t have any issues after the winter by getting a ladder and during a visual inspection. If you can’t do that safely, you may want to call a roofing company to do an inspection for you.
Brush Off Your Outdoor Furniture
This is the time to get your outdoor furniture ready to be used again. The winter months are over and the snow is gone. Getting your front porch and patio ready to be living spaces again is key for not only your own leisure during the spring and summer months, but also for increasing your property’s value for prospective buyers. Potential buyers want to see if your property has spaces that they can enjoy during the warm months, and patios can really attract buyers.
Not looking forward to handling spring cleaning this year? Don’t want to work on maintenance after those long winter months? Still want to sell your property without going through all of the hard work and expense? You are in luck. 4 Brothers Buy Houses will purchase your property for cash. You don’t need to hire a real estate agent or go through a lengthy showcasing process. We’ll come by your property and provide you with a free, no obligation quote.
