If you’re currently considering selling your property, I’m sure that you’re considering who and how to sell your property. Should you work with an investor, or a real estate agent? Our blog post below discusses advantages of working with an investor in Kansas City…
When it comes to selling your Kansas City house, you generally have 3 options. First, you can work with a realtor/agent who will list your home and try and find a buyer for you. Second, you can market the property and try to find a buyer yourself. And lastly, you can work with an investor who will be able to buy the house directly from you… and fast. Here are the advantages of selling to an investor…
Key Advantages Of Selling To An Investor Over A Traditional Buyer In Kansas City: Speed
In order to sell to a traditional buyer, that buyer has to be found by the agent… which is a process that can take months. This is especially true for properties that need a little TLC. Even when a buyer is found, the home may fall out of closing and go back on the market causing further delays. Fortunately, you don’t have to wait that long. When you sell to a real estate investor, they can close fast – often in as a little as a week or two. The time may vary depending on the investor. Since they are buyers, and there’s no searching… you already know who they are so you can sell quickly!
A huge benefit of a quick sale is that you don’t have to worry about bills and taxes continuing to hit your pocketbook while you wait to sell. This can save your hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars!
Key Advantages Of Selling To An Investor Over A Traditional Buyer In Kansas City: No Repairs
Not every single property is in HGTV condition, perfectly staged and ready for a showing. That’s okay, it happens. But when you sell to a traditional buyer, you’ll probably have to pay out-of-pocket to fix up the property and clean it before a traditional buyer will even look at your house. In fact, many agents will refuse to list a home that isn’t in great condition or has some issues such as a smell or too dirty. But most investors such as Green Sparrow Properties will buy the property in “as-is” condition, saving you the time, money and hassle of fixing and cleaning up the home yourself!
And if the repairs are really extensive, you won’t have to deal with a contractor, either. Yes, the investor may ask for a small discount on the selling price since THEY are covering the repairs instead of you, but this is a small price to pay to sell quickly and without all the hassle.
Key Advantages Of Selling To An Investor Over A Traditional Buyer In Kansas City: No Guessing
This is perhaps the biggest problem of them all: When you sell to a traditional buyer, you’re really hoping that they will be able to pay the price that you want. Even when the property is under contract for a great price, you still have to deal with inspections, financing contingencies, and negotiations which can take a long time. The final price may be much lower than what you originally thought which is, of course, less than ideal. But when you sell to an investor there is no second guessing. You know exactly what the investor will pay right away! You’re not obligated to accept their offer, but this gives you an idea of your properties worth and can only help you moving forward.
While there are many choices you have when selling your property, and selling to an investor isn’t the right choice for everyone, it might be right for you.
