In Houston there are over 20,000 structural fires every year.
Experiencing a house fire can change your life in more ways than one. If you find yourself in this unenviable situation, Fit Acquisitions can help discuss your options. Fit Acquisitions has experience purchasing fire damaged properties, so if you decide to sell, Fit Acquisitions can buy your property as is and make the process as easy as possible.
There are many reasons you may choose to sell a fire damaged home, including the time and expense it takes to restore a fire damaged property to its original condition. In addition to the inconvenience of choosing between living in a construction zone or being displaced while your home is being restored, a fire damaged home can contain health hazards, including toxic materials. There may also be water damage from the water used to extinguish the fire. Consequently, the costs of repairing and cleaning a home after a fire are high, along with the cost of hiring a general contractor who can navigate the process of inspections and construction permits, which can also delay the process of restoring a home. Finally, after experiencing a fire, you may simply want to move out and move on as quickly as possible.
Whether or not you decide to sell your home, you will need to file an insurance claim, the proceeds of which can either be used to help you fix your damaged home or to help pay for a new home. Although every insurance claim is unique as it depends on the insurance company in question, there are a few general rules. It is best to file the claim as soon as possible, and to keep detailed records of the damage done to the property because of the fire. The insurance company will then be able to evaluate your claim and the damage and tell you how much they will give you. In some circumstances, while the insurance claim is being processed, you may be able to request an advance payment on the claim to cover immediate needs such as somewhere to stay and replacing necessary items that were damaged.

You may need a professional cash home buyer who can buy the property in as-is condition and has experiencing purchasing and repairing fire damaged homes.
