Best Offer OKC, an experienced local cash home-buying company based in Oklahoma City, is advising property owners on the best way to get an offer on a fire-damaged home.
According to statistics from the Insurance Information Institute, in 2021, fires caused over $44 billion in property damage across the country. Oklahoma is particularly susceptible to frequent wildfires, with more than 7,800 recorded wildfires in 2021, that threaten properties near areas of vegetation. Professional restorers try their best to salvage as much of the original structure of a fire-damaged home as possible, but it is not always feasible to rebuild with what is left. They use their experience to assess the integrity of the surviving framing and then move through the rooms of the house using crowbars or hand tools to remove the unrecoverable parts of the home.
Fire-damaged homes are very expensive to restore as they almost always require a complete rebuild depending on several factors such as the size of the fire and how far it was able to spread. Moreover, homeowners also suffer significant losses when their precious belongings get destroyed in the engulfing flames. Depending on the classification of the fire, Class A or Class B, builders charge different rates to clean and rebuild a property. Homeowners may be able to get recompensated to some extent by their insurance company if their policy includes the requisite coverage.
The spokesperson for Best Offer OKC, Alex Wentland explains why selling a fire-damaged home might be the right option for some property owners. He says, “If the fire-damaged property is not your primary residence then it may not make fiscal sense to spend all the money required to repair or rebuild it. For example, repairing a 1,500-square-foot house will cost you upwards of $16,000 and for a complete rebuild, you can expect to pay around $50 per square foot. You also have to find a reliable structural engineer, acquire all the building and demolition permits, and wait for a few weeks, or even a few months, for the work to complete. It becomes a time and money investment that you might not be ready to undertake, especially when you have access to cash home buyers like me and Ellen who will offer you fair value for your fire-damaged home without requiring any repairs. It is a great way to capitalize on your property assets and use the money from our fast all-cash offer for other ventures. So, if you have a fire-damaged property in the state, call us today. We buy houses Oklahoma City residents want to move on from.”
