Mastering the Art of Selling Damaged Property: 3 Proven Strategies

Description automatically generated

Are you sitting on a damaged property that’s seen better days? Maybe it’s a fixer-upper that got stuck halfway through the renovation. Other properties may simply be suffering from old age and neglect. If you’re scratching your head, wondering how to get that property off your hands, you’re not alone. This study shows that over 12% of homes sold in the U.S. in 2023 had significant issues. From structural damage to cosmetic imperfections, selling a property that’s in rough shape is still possible.

Here are three effective strategies you can use to sell a damaged property quickly and for a high amount.

  1. Network with Investors

One of the fastest ways to sell a damaged property is by targeting the right kind of buyers – the investors. These buyers are often real estate investors or house flippers who see potential where others see disaster. They’re looking for projects that allow them to buy low, make repairs, and sell high for a profit.

However, these buyers are not always easy to find in the open market. They don’t usually peruse traditional real estate listings. Instead, they rely on personal contacts, professional networks, or specific platforms that cater to their needs. Therefore, taking the time to network with these investors can significantly increase your chances of selling the property.

You can tap into this market by attending real estate investment meetings in your area, joining online investor forums, and connecting with local real estate agents who work with investors. Alternatively, you could consider selling the property at a real estate auction, where investors are often on the lookout for their next project. 

Engaging directly with investors not only provides a quicker selling process, but it also offers the opportunity to sell the property at a competitive price. Investors understand the value behind a fixer-upper and are often willing to negotiate a fair deal based on the potential they see. Therefore, networking with this specific group can turn your damaged property into a sought-after investment.

  1.  Price it Right

The first thing a potential buyer notices about your property is the price. A perfect price point can turn a damaged property into a golden opportunity in the eyes of buyers. Setting the right price involves a mix of market research and understanding buyer psychology. 

Buyers looking for damaged properties are often investors or house flippers, on the hunt for a good deal. These buyers are attracted to the idea of investing in something undervalued that they can repair and resell for profit. Hence, pricing your property a bit lower than the market average for similar but non-damaged properties can create a sense of urgency and perceived value. This strategy, combined with transparency about the home’s condition, can attract these savvy buyers.

  1. Promote “As-Is” Sales: A Win-Win Situation

When selling a damaged property, you might want to consider promoting it “as-is.” This method can be an attractive option for both buyers and sellers. 

For sellers, this option offers relief from the financial burden of repairs and renovations. For buyers, it gives them the freedom to customize the property according to their preferences. They can remodel, renovate, and redecorate at will, turning the property into their dream home or a profitable flip. Promoting this mutual advantage can be an excellent tool for engagement and persuasion.

Turning Damage into Dollars

Selling a damaged property doesn’t have to be a Herculean task. With the right strategies and understanding of buyer psychology, you can turn what seems like a liability into a hot property. Remember, it’s all about how you price, present, and promote the property. These proven tactics can attract the right kind of home buyers, creating a sense of urgency and maximizing your return. And who knows, your “damaged property” might just turn into someone’s dream project.

  • Existing home sales surged 14.5% month-over-month in February, ending the year-long streak of declines and jumping by the largest monthly percentage in three years. Compared to February 2020, the median existing-home sales price decreased 0.2% to $363,000.
  • Mortgage application submissions increased a composite 3% during the week ending 3/17. Refinance submissions increased 5% while purchase submissions rose 2%.
  • The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) voted to hike the benchmark interest rate another 0.25% and hinted at just one more quarter-point hike. The markets saw an indication of an upcoming Fed pivot in Fed Chair Powell’s press conference comments, causing a sharp downward trend in mortgage rates.
  • Continuing jobless claims increased more than expected during the week ending 3/11 – rising by 14,000 to reach a level of 1,694,000. Initial jobless claims fell by 1,000 despite a predicted increase, dropping to a level of 191,000 during the week ending 3/18.

Brian Meidam:

EXPERTISE: Got an Uncle Sam Hangover? Want to save up to 37% in income taxes?! Brian can help you with structuring your real estate deals using your Self-Directed IRA. He can also teach you about IRA strategies for massive account growth and building generational wealth.


Let’s be real…you could care less about my profile.  What you do care about is WIIFM (What’s In It For Me)! To legitimize myself (sorry, I was told I had to 😊) let me tell you in a couple of sentences about the stuff you really don’t care about anyway and then we can move on to the stuff you care about:

I’ve done a crap ton of real estate deals since 2005.  I wholesale, rehab and flip, have a rental portfolio, I lend money locally, we do short sales, blah…blah…blah!

Now on to the important stuff:

I got tired of Uncle Sam acting like my business partner and taking 40% of everything I made when he did nothing. That seemed crazy to me – so I had to figured out a better way to do this, and I want to share it with you and help you structure your real estate deals in a way that will help you keep what you earn so you can build the long-term wealth that you deserve.. 

So maybe you’re currently in the shoes I was previously wearing…you’re making money in real estate and you’re paying a bunch in income taxes and you’re tired of it. You’re making your Uncle Sam rich and he takes zero risk and pockets a big chunk of your annual income. What if I could show you some strategies that have saved me $100’s of thousands of dollars of taxes?

Or how about this…you’ve been in the game for a while and you keep saying “I’ll start saving for retirement next year” …well next year(s) have come and gone and you haven’t saved jack!  You’re behind the 8-ball and forgot about that whole savings thing. What if I could teach you some strategies to catch up using real estate?

Or maybe you have a bunch of cash to work with in your self-directed account but have no idea how to put it to work for you? Or maybe you’re an active real estate investor, but only have $500 in a self-directed Roth. You’re just starting out putting a few bucks aside, but you know it’s important. What if I could teach you strategies to grow that $500 into $100,000 in 12-months?

Listen, I ain’t no attorney. And I ain’t providing legal advice. I’m providing advice on how to grow your wealth by a crap ton (yes…my word of the week). The problem here is that this information is worth much more than the hourly rate I’m charging – I typically charge a flat fee for the value I’m bringing to the table. You see the rate listed below for an hour and some of you may cringe, while others “get it” and know that their net worth will grow massively with a little investment. I hope you “get it”.

RATE:  $500/hr, 1-hr minimum. MONEY BACK GUARANTEE: You’ll save more than twice the amount you paid me in taxes on your next flip.

Debra Tuttle Hayes, Esq.


  • Landing investment properties at sheriff sales and other not commonly known auctions
  • The residential foreclosure cycle – identifying the high percentage window for direct buy
  • Obtaining private funding for auction purchases and other buys
  • Using your self-directed IRA for your real estate business and other tax-savings tips.


Can’t believe I’ve been in the real estate arena for 35 years. Time really does fly. My start was as an attorney representing banks in home foreclosures, then commercial foreclosures, added general business litigation and then real estate transactional work. After that, I took a 180-degree turn from court work to design and lead a statewide non-profit that did foreclosure mediations under the court system during the Great Recession. As foreclosures levels got back to normal, I left that position and 100% invested in real estate:  first buy was at a Waukesha foreclosure sale – all in at $613,000. My partner and I came out in the black on that one, although we learned that big capital investment also means potentially big risk. We went on the buy 3-5 properties per year to flip or wholesale.

When foreclosure volume began to diminish, the pivot was to private lending to our fellow real estate investor colleagues. As the has business grown, the focus expanded to figure out how to keep more of what was coming in by learning and understanding legitimate techniques to enjoy tax efficiency (i.e., pay only those income taxes that are required). 

Over the years, many people have shared their knowledge, ideas, and gems of wisdom, and I am grateful. In turn, if I can be of service to you, I am happy to do it.

    • Pathway for investor: close your purchase with a hard money loan and we can use a 30-year fixed DSCR product to help you refinance out of the hard money once you complete your project. We have products that allow you to close on your refinance with NEW appraised values before the hard money payoff is due at 6 months.
  • Bank statement loans: if self-employed, uses gross business deposits over 12-months, applies an expense factor, and then we will use that gross business income for mortgage qualification. Can be used on primary, second homes, and investment properties.


Another closed deal from Captain Save A Home LLC, one of Wisconsin and Milwaukee’s top professional home buyers. This deal was 2 single family homes next to each other, on one lot, located in the Brewer’s Hill neighborhood of Milwaukee, WI 53212. Both properties needed foundation/basement repairs which is not an issue since we have incredible foundation contractors and we buy houses as is, with no repairs necessary. Not every real estate deal is easy and at the last minute, the out of state hard money lender, who throughout the transaction was difficult to work with, backed out at the last minute. It pays to have purposeful and meaningful local connections and we know a lot of local hard money lenders that are honest, dependable and fair. It pays to be honorable in business and earn the trust and respect of your local real estate investor community as it helps when challenges arise.
