“Help! I’m Trying To Figure Out How To Sell My House Fast In Kansas City“
5 Tips For Home Sellers
If you own a house in Kansas City and are wanting to sell the property quickly, read on for 5 helpful tips to do just that!
Tip #1 – Skip The Fix-Up
One thing that delays homeowners more than any others is waiting on getting the property fixed up before putting it on the market. Real estate agents, with the best intentions, often advise sellers to do repairs as that can help the home sell quickly for more money. But it sells quickly only after the repairs are made, which can take a while. And the larger the renovation, the longer the sale is delayed.
Tip #2 – Forget Retail
In real estate lingo, selling a property “on market” means listing it with a real estate agent and selling it to a “retail buyer”, or someone who wants to live in the home themselves. However, retail buyers can be difficult to work with in the sales process, and can often delay closing for quite a while! To sell quickly, you’re better off working directly with a house buying company.
Tip #3 – Gather Your Data
Sometimes buyers request lots of different information form a homeowner, and gathering that info can be a time consuming process. This might include information such as when the HVAC unit was installed or when the roof was last shingled, etc. By having all of the relevant property information in one place, ideally electronically, you can expedite the sales process.
Tip #4 – Bypass The Agent
Agents are motivated to sell you home for the most money (bigger commissions), and in fact obligated to do so because of fiduciary responsibility (fancy word for doing what’s in the best financial interest of their clients). Of course this is important, but agents may sometimes delay the process to hold out for better offers. Bypassing an agent and selling directly to a buyer, such as a buyer like us at Green Sparrow Properties will help you to sell your house faster.
