8 Tips to Help You Sell a Vacant or Abandoned Home in the RGV

Selling a vacant or abandoned home can feel completely overwhelming to homeowners, especially if you live out of state, need to sell your house soon or simply don’t know where to start. It can be challenging to find a buyer who is willing to purchase a property that’s been sitting vacant for a while, as they are typically neglected or poorly maintained. However, the team at HB&B Investments specializes in buying homes in as-is conditions in an smooth, friendly and fair process.

This means that you don’t have to worry about making repairs, renovations or cleaning your property before selling it. Our team will take care of these so that you can focus on other matters. 

If you’re looking to sell a vacant or abandoned home in the RGV the traditional way, here are eight tips to help you out:

1. Get a professional appraisal

Before putting your property on the market, it’s important to get a professional appraisal. This will help you determine the fair market value of your home and ensure that you’re pricing it correctly if you opt to list it in the market.

2. Clean up the property

First impressions matter, so it’s essential to clean up the property before showing it to potential buyers. This includes removing any debris, cutting the grass and trimming the bushes. You’ll need to make repairs and possibly repaint or tile. 

3. Stage the home for potential buyers

If possible, stage the home to make it look more appealing to potential buyers. This can be as simple as adding some furniture and decor to make the space feel more welcoming. For better results, hire a professional stager, but keep in mind, this can be costly. 

4. Take high-quality photos of your property

When listing your property online, it’s important to take high-quality photos that showcase your home’s best features. This will help attract more potential buyers and increase your chances of selling quickly. Hire a professional photographer to capture interior and drone footage fo your home. 

5. List the property on multiple platforms

To reach as many potential buyers as possible, list your property on multiple platforms, such as Zillow, Trulia and Some agents include this in their marketing, while others may charge you an additional fee. 

6. Be flexible with showings

When selling a vacant or abandoned home, it’s important to be flexible with showings. This means being willing to show the property at different times of the day or on weekends. Without people in the house, showing it should be relatively easy. 

7. Consider working with a real estate agent

While selling a vacant or abandoned home on your own is possible, it can be challenging. Consider working with a (hybrid) real estate agent (we talk about that here) who has experience selling properties in your area.
