4 Unconventional Ways to Sell Your House in Kansas City

Do you need to sell your house in Kansas City? When most people consider selling a home they initially think to: agent and get the home listed on the MLS. However, this is not the only way to sell a home and there are situations in which this approach is not the best.

Agents are by far the The most common way to sell a home, but they are not always the most flexible. An agent is a good choice if you have a lot of time and money to sell your home. Also, you need to consider whether or not the home is in pristine condition for listing. If not, you also need to consider everything it will take to get your Kansas City home ready to put on the market. 

We’ll discuss four unconventional ways to sell your house in Kansas City 

Owner Finance

Owner financing is a lucrative yet unconventional way to sell your house in Kansas City. Owner financing can be a complicated topic, but don’t worry, we’re here to walk you through all of your options and the process. One way to owner finance a home is to do a seller carry. Simply put this is when the seller agrees to finance the property for the buyer. Just like a bank. They can finance the entire purchase price or simply a portion of it. The main reason that the seller would want to do this is to avoid a large tax bill by selling their home. Again, we can help you navigate seller financing, so please don’t hesitate to give us a call if the sounds of interest to you.

Rent with an Option

Renting the home with a contract for an option to buy at the end of a given period, typically two years is a very creative, unconventional way to sell your house in Kansas City. This is also known as rent to own or a lease option. In exchange for allowing the buyer to do a rent to own, you can charge a premium on rent and even set the purchase price higher than the market value. Homes usually appreciate and so you should be covered in this situation.


One more unconventional way for you to sell your house in Kansas City is an FSBO listing or for sale by owner. This home sales method is attractive to homeowners who seek to avoid paying high real estate commissions. Regrettably, only about 10 percent of FSBO sellers are successful and have wasted valuable time with their property lingering on the Kansas City market. Often this is because of inexperience with marketing real estate and dealing with the negotiations without injecting personal emotions. Homes that have been on the market for a long time rarely sell at current market values.

Direct Sale

Direct sales to a company like Green Sparrow Properties are an additional unconventional way to sell your house in Kansas City, with which most homeowners are unfamiliar. Professional buyers have the power of cash backing them, meaning that closing is only mere days or weeks away.  A professional buyer will take the time to listen to your needs and will even compare what you would likely receive from a conventional sale with a real estate agent so that you can compare your options. With none of the hoops of listing to jump through, no showings, and no inspections to pass, a direct sale means your house will sell as-is. A professional buyer like those at Green Sparrow Properties handles everything for you. You don’t even have to clean before you leave. You can even pick the closing date.
