It might be surprising to learn that, in one survey, 20% of people listed this as the biggest challenge to owning a home.
In some cases, the electrical wiring doesn’t allow for power to part of the home… in other cases, the wiring is downright dangerous.
So, what should you do if your house has bad electrical wiring?
Here are a few ideas…
Get an Electrical Inspection — Electrical wiring problems are not something to try to fix on your own. Hire a professional to inspect the home and identify the source of the problem. This usually will cost about $200.
Hire a Licensed Electrician — Once the problem has been identified, a licensed electrician can fix the wiring in the home. But this is pretty spendy. Unfortunately, electrical rewiring can cost upwards of $8,000 to $15,000.
Prepare The Home For Selling — Before selling the home, it’ll also be necessary to repair anything else that’s broken, update appliances, and even hire someone to stage the inside. MLS buyers today are pretty picky.
Or Sell To a Professional Homebuyer — If that all sounds like too much money and too much hassle, then you might consider selling to a professional homebuyer like ourselves.
