There are many reasons why you should sell to an investor in Kansas City as opposed to an iBuyer. As a local home buyer, we would love to help you with your unwanted property in Kansas City! Get in touch with us today to find out what we can do for you!
There are a number of corporations getting into the business of buying homes. However, the majority of these corporations are just trying to make a quick buck off of someone who is desperate to sell their home. Working with a local and professional home buyer will give you the same fast results, but with a much more personalized experience.
Most people would rather work with a person that they know and trust, and not some massive faceless corporation. I know that I do! When you work with Green Sparrow Properties, or can have a personal relationship with your home buyer who will guide you through the process. We will listen to your selling goals, time frame, and help you with anything you need to make the selling process go as smoothly as possible. We are committed to helping you through the process and can provide creative solutions to make things easy for you.
Many iBuyers out there are buying nationwide. They are looking for the best deals and if it isn’t what they want, they will just move onto the next person. When you work with a local investor, such as Green Sparrow Properties, you’ll be able to work with someone who really knows the local market. We will be able to get you a more accurate price as we know the local market, construction and labor markets, etc. You won’t have to worry about getting a blanket offer on our property sight unseen. A local and professional buyer will also have numerous local vendors in their contact list, making the process even more efficient and low-cost. We know a great title company, contractor, or cleaning service, and you’ll be able to benefit from these associations.
iBuyers charge a fee for their services whereas working with a local investment company such as Green Sparrow Properties does not. When you work with an iBuyer, expect to pay a fee of anywhere from 7.5-11.5%! Unfortunately, many people have been lured in in the past with a high sales price offer, only to realize down the road that they are keeping substantially less of this money themselves. This can even be a substantial deduction from the offer price which was likely low to begin with.
A local home buyer with the right motives cares greatly about their community and the people in it. At Green Sparrow Properties, it is our goal to help people out of difficult situations and with difficult properties. We will take the time to listen to your selling goals and help you determine if they are realistic or not. As a small business, our reputation is critical. At the end of the day, we want to be able to put a smile on someone’s face because we were able to get them out of a difficult situation with a difficult property. We have a reputation to uphold and we will go out of our way to make sure home sellers in Kansas City have a positive experience.
When calculating the cost of the needed repairs, iBuyers are known to nickel and dime their clients. Small and petty repairs are often factored into the iBuyer’s offer, reducing the price further and further. When you choose to sell your house directly to Green Sparrow Properties, we will adjust our offer price based on major repairs only. Small and unnecessary repairs won’t even be considered when we are putting our offer together. We love doing major repairs and so will usually go over those small things as a matter of course anyways.
iBuyers are getting a lot of attention, but based on many studies and experiences we have heard about, the process isn’t as beneficial as it may seem.
