Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and when it comes to houses, it all depends on what you are looking for. I have always been afraid to use the whole houses that are UGLY Moniker in my marketing for fear that someone needing to sell an ugly, distressed house just wouldn’t understand the blatant use of the term. Aside from that I am not affiliated with the Company that does advertise the term and that would be a copyright infringement.
My name is Peter Westbrook and I am a local cash home buyer and in my years of experience, I have come to realize that the term is used to describe more than just the physical condition of the houses in question.

So what is an Ugly House?
I think that the answer is exactly what most people expect. My definition of ugly includes homes that are in disrepair, homes with serious deferred maintenance or structural issues, and homes that keep homeowners hostage in ugly circumstances. This most often occurs when:
- Houses are in undesirable areas or in high crime neighborhoods
- Houses that are inherited by Out of State out of area relatives
- Houses that have suffered damage from fire, water, etc.
- Houses that have suffered from renter abuse
- Houses that have had no maintenance in years
- Houses that have had Non-Permitted Additions or unfinished additions
- Houses that were owned by Hoarders
- Houses that have damaged foundations
- Houses that are no longer convenient for homeowners, job relocation
- Houses with memories for a homeowner, such as death or divorce
- Houses with negative mortgage financing terms or high interest rates
- Houses with high payments or upside down mortgage balances
- Houses that cause any other type of distress to a homeowner
Most people that need to sell their run down houses in Stockton are held hostage by a house that by all standards in real estate is NOT Marketable.
If you are a homeowner of a distressed house that needs repairs, you have a challenge because if you call a real estate agent, most will not understand the specific market niche that your house fits in because it does not fit their template of selling pretty houses. When a distressed or Ugly house comes along, they have no specific training to deal with it, and in most cases they either call me, (the local cash house buyer) or they sign a listing agreement with you to try and sell the house. Either way, remember that the seller pays the commission whenever a real estate agent is involved.
In my experience, it is difficult to sell anything without the proper tools, especially if you are marketing it to the wrong home buying audience. When you consider that 95% of today’s buyers in the Stockton real estate market want a house that is in “move-in ready condition”, the big question is… will your house just sit?
We all know the drill… You call a Realtor and they will want you to make all kinds of repairs, updates and improvements all of which can and will cost you thousands of dollars. It’s understandable, they want to sell the house and they want it in a condition that it will sell fast. If your house sits, there are no commissions.
- they will want a listing agreement to sell the house (usually 6 months)
- they will want a 6% commission
- they will want to parade buyers through your house and nit- pick everything that is wrong
- they will want you to make as many repairs as they can talk you into (money is no object)
- They will want you update the house
- they will want you to put new flooring into the house
- they will want you to landscape the house
- It’s a long list
If you need to sell your house fast, 6 months is anything but fast. That equates to a lot of other holding cost and out of pocket expenses when you add to that cost, the average number of days it takes to sell a house, what are your chances of getting “top dollar” for your house even if market prices continue to rise?
