Whenever you’re selling a property the two most important factors to consider is the time and money. Some say time is money, but I digress….. Because property values tend to rise, if you were to wait long enough you may be able to get a higher price for your home. But you may be waiting a long, long time.
For those that need to sell their homes quickly, it usually comes at the cost of selling for a lower price. And who will buy it? Well fret not. There are companies such as ours, Green Sparrow Properties. We specialize in buying homes quickly to help out homeowners who need to sell fast. Sometimes, the house is in really bad shape and isn’t suitable to sell on the open market. We love to buy those types of homes as well.
How Do We Buy Ugly Houses in Kansas City Cash Buyers Work?
Finding a reputable cash home buyer can seem like a challenging task, but an online search will pull up several such companies and investors around the Kansas City area that can pay cash for your home. There are several things to keep in mind when evaluating these companies though.
Before you keep reading, if you’re unfamiliar with how the process of working with a cash home buyer such as us works, please take a look at our FAQ page, and visit “How it Works” at the top of the page.
Price vs. Time- Which One is More Important
As you might imagine, selling your home for top dollar very quickly is not easy. You will generally get a higher price by trying to sell your home on the MLS, otherwise known as the open market or traditional way. But this only works well if your home is in relatively good condition. You may have to wait 3-6 months in order to find a buyer, complete the transaction, and get your money. And during this time, you will likely have people coming in and out of your house routinely.
Also, keep in mind that real estate agents charge a commission of around 6% to sell the home. Is it worth it to you to wait 3-6 months, and pay 6% right off the top to sell your home?
Another option is to sell the home to a local house buyer such as Green Sparrow Properties. We will get some information over the phone to determine whether your property is a good fit for our process. Next, we’ll have someone come to the property to evaluate how much repairs are needed, and what those will cost, as well as how long that repair will take. We also have to make a small profit as investors and so factor that into the cost of the home. When we subtract all of those costs from the fixed up market value of the home we make an offer. And due to all of those costs, the offers tend to be below market value.
But the benefit to you as a homeowner is that we close very quickly. We can get cash in your pocket in as little as 7 days. We also don’t mind making repairs, dealing with tenants. So if selling very quickly with very little hassle is more important than getting every single dollar that you can out of the property you can either fill out the form here….or call us at 816-800-9238.
We like to make sure that our sellers understand all of their options. We encourage people we work with to take our offer and shop it around to other companies as well. We likely won’t be the highest……and we won’t be the lowest….. but you know that when you work with us, that we will follow through on exactly what we say we’re going to do.
How Much Hassle do You Want to Deal With?
Another fantastic benefit of working with us is that we take care of the entire sales process from start to finish. You don’t need to worry about marketing the property, dealing with agents, and doing a bunch of showings on the home.
Since we, along with our investor partners, buy the home directly from you in as-is condition, there’s no need to worry about staging the home, cleaning it up, or removing any unwanted items. You have to do that when going with a traditional agent, and it can truly be a ton of work!
Especially if the house needs some (or a lot) of work!
We are local Kansas City house buyers who specialize in buying distressed properties. If the home is in disrepair, we will pay for all of the repairs out of our own pocket once we purchase the home from you.
You don’t even need to worry about any complicated paperwork. We will get all of the paperwork ready for you with the help of a neutral third party closing agent of your choosing. This is typically done at a title company. If you don’t know of one specifically, we are more than happy to recommend one that we’ve used for years. And we will handle all of the costs at the title company as well!
Basically, we give you a flat cash price (or call us today at 816-800-9238) that will equal dollars in your pocket, minus any mortgages that you owe. If it’s a great fit….we will handle everything!
