The Cost of Ownership: What Your Milwaukee Property Is Really Costing You

Selling a house isn’t an easy decision. In the end, you did spend many nice years living on your property. However, once you learn the cost of ownership, you might make a decision more quickly.

Have you found yourself holding a property that you are now looking to sell? Your property is quite literally holding you as well. The expenses involved could prevent you from moving forward with your dreams. As time passes, it’s important to understand the true cost of ownership.  Your home is likely one of the largest investments you will make and when it comes time to sell, there are many factors to take into consideration. You’ve likely invested even more money than expected for any necessary rehab and staging to list your home. Only to find the ongoing costs involved in holding the property are killing you! Not to mention the hassle of living your life around the showing appointments and having your time wasted by unqualified buyers, low ball offers, and people just looking to get ideas for their own home!

End The Costs

Everyone has probably heard the wonderful stories about a house getting listed and then sold the same day, or even in just a few hours. The reality is a bit different, as a lot of properties end up waiting on the market for months, sometimes even years. And in most cases, the final sale price gets lower the longer the house stays on the market. This will also increase the amount of repairs that is needed, which will further increase your cost of ownership.

One of the ways to prevent your property from becoming a pile of unexpected risk and expenses is to sell your Milwaukee house to Sparks Property Investors LLC. We can help you stop the long wait and anticipation of offers and buy your unwanted Milwaukee property.

What Owning A House Is Costing You

The financial responsibility of keeping a home on the market can be devastating as time passes. Costs involved include mortgage, insurance, and taxes. A great number of factors can influence the bottom line on these numbers, including variable interest rates, time of ownership, and market changes which can affect the equity you had hoped to realize on your Milwaukee property. 

Utilities, upkeep, and maintenance are ongoing; most especially when your home is on the market and are of utmost importance to attract buyers. These same costs of ownership can also drown you in unexpected expenses. This is especially true as homes age. 

Circumstances change. A new job or some unforeseen opportunity may force you to move prior to your home selling, leaving you to cover unexpected costs of ownership. You’ll need to hire professionals to maintain your Milwaukee property from a distance, in addition to covering all of the costs of two properties. Someone should regularly check on the property in this event to catch any new issues, including theft by someone you’ve entrusted or maintenance issues such as leaks, etc. before they turn into even larger disasters. 


When your home is sitting empty, it can become an attractive target. Vandals and thieves are just another possibility of increasing your cost of ownership.

Considering all of the variables in the financial markets, the housing market, the costs and risks of maintaining an empty home and life changes that can contribute to the bottom line, these factors can severely deplete what you earn on your investment, let alone unexpected repairs or outright theft or vandalism. It’s clear to see that time truly is of the essence. You can be sure time passing equals more costs to you.

Relieving you of the financial responsibility and risks. We’re here to help you sell your house fast!
