5 Reasons You Should Work With An Investor Instead of An Agent To Sell Your Kansas City House

It’s time to sell your house. You keep asking yourself if you should hire an agent to sell your house in Kansas City, Missouri. Do you want to pay commissions? How long are you willing to wait for the house to receive an offer? How long will it take to close? What sort of repairs will you have to make? Are you available to show your house with 24-hour notice, or less? 

No Property Showings

If you decide to sell your house directly to a professional house buyer in Kansas City, you don’t need to worry about going through a long, drawn-out, emotional rollercoaster. There are no frustrating, middle-of-dinner phone calls asking if you are available to show your house. You don’t have to worry about possibly running into a buyer’s agent or their clients or dealing with them asking you questions that you really shouldn’t answer anyway. It is a simple and straightforward process, the way things should be.

No Commissions or Fees

Real estate agents are paid based on a percentage of the sale price of your house. If you do not use an agent, there will be no commissions paid to a buyer’s or seller’s agent. Often times this is a flat 6% of the price of your house, which can equal many thousands of dollars in savings! The usual commission is 3% per side, so if you sell your house for $400,000, you would have to pay $24,000 out of your proceeds in commissions alone, along with the traditional seller’s closing fees and other possible transaction fees to the closing agent and the real estate agents office. Real estate investors typically do not charge commission or transaction fees, and if they do, it is extremely low in comparison. We don’t charge any fees or commissions whatsoever. The price we negotiate is the price you get to keep minus taxes.

Waiting Time Frame

Real estate agents have access to the multiple listing service, or MLS, which allows your property to be found in searches for certain features of a property. This may sound great, but how long will it sit on the market? How fast will you receive offers?

Real estate investors and other home buyers have an extensive network of investor friends, colleagues and partners. So if a property doesn’t fit what we’re looking for, we can still likely get the thing sold for you pretty darn quickly. And whether we buy it or our partner does, this means a very limited waiting time for an offer. Also, when you sell your house in Kansas City, Missouri directly to house buyers, they will typically close faster than traditional buyers, and usually pay full in cash. Traditional house purchases usually require qualifications from banks, mortgage underwriting time, property inspection and the buyer may not end up qualifying in the end. 

Inspections & Repairs

Professional house buyers in Missouri will usually purchase houses as-is. This means that you won’t have to worry about fixing up your house, hiring contractors, shelling out the money for repairs, and on and on. When you use a real estate agent, the buyer’s agent will almost always order an inspection of the property. If they find something wrong with the property structure, they may require you to fix it out of pocket before the property closes. We are well-capitalized and will bear the burden of that risk on our end to make things easy for you!

You Have Time

When you work with an investor instead of an agent to sell your Kansas City house, you will likely have time after the closing to move out. When you work with an agent in Kansas City, you are normally expected to vacate the house on or before the day of closing since the property 

When you sell to us, you don’t have to worry about cleaning up after you move out or make any repairs. We buy your property as-is and will give you time to find your new house!
