Look over these tips to learn the best way for you to sell a fire damaged house in Oklahoma and get the best deal possible.


Don’t Wait

I know the last thing you want to do after a house fire is figure out how to sell it. But the longer you let your house sit before selling, so many other things can go wrong. People can break in and live there, causing more damage in the long run. 


If someone is living in an empty house, they have to figure out a way to stay warm because there is no electricity, meaning no heat. Chances are they will start a fire inside the house, which could cause another damaging house fire.


Additional Damages

Weather is another factor that can cause even more damage to your home. When it rains, everything will get wet and moldy, which could cause health issues. Heavy winds can rip off pieces of the house that are already holding on by a thread. Snow can cause pipes to freeze and crack, making plumbing a massive danger to fix.


Animals are also a major thing to consider getting into your house after a fire. If animals move in, they can chew on wires, wood, and just about anything they can find to sink their teeth into. This can end up causing yet another fire if the animals chew through the right wires.


The City’s Bad Side

Your house can end up on the city’s watch list. Chances are the city already knows about the fire, and they will send inspectors to assess the damage. If it is deemed unsafe, you will need to fix it. If you don’t fix it, they will take matters into their own hands and fic it for you with a very hefty price tag. If the house sits unsafe for too long, the city can also tear it down on their own time and bill you for it as well.


Insurance Claim

If you hold homeowner’s insurance, it is likely that the company is already preparing to write you a check for damages. However, insurance companies will try to pay you the absolute minimum to get the situation over with as quick as they can. The process can still take several months to finalize.
