Best Way To Sell Your House And Downsize In The Kansas City Metro Area
Do you have a house in the Kansas City metro area and are thinking of selling in the near future? Maybe you’re wondering what the best way to sell is.
Most people think that or assume that utilizing a real estate agent is the only way to sell. But more and more people are understanding that they also can call a home buying company that buys houses direct as well.
What House Selling Benefits Are Of Value To You?
Depending on your situation and really what is a value to you, will determine the best way for you to sell your house. If you are not in a hurry, if you want to absolutely maximize your value out of the house, which understandably just about everybody does, and you don’t mind getting the house in a show-ready, market-ready condition, needs no repairs or updates and you don’t mind the traditional way of selling a house, having people come through your house, things like that, then listing may be the best way to sell your house.
If that’s the case, I do work with agents that do a great job of marketing a house in a traditional manner. If on the other hand, you’re one of the people like I’ve worked with over the past 20 plus years as a home buyer, that puts value in just a very easy, straightforward way of selling a house without all those potential challenges of a traditional sale, then selling to a home buyer might be a great solution for you.
Why Home Owners Sell Their House To Home Downsizing Solutions
The reason that people sell to my company, the benefits that I can offer to them that make it an attractive alternative, is that especially in situations where maybe a person has owned a house for 20, 30, 40 plus years and maybe they haven’t done all the updating or repairs that could or should have been done to make or keep the house in a condition that is as good as possible, as market ready and showing the full potential of the house.
But if they have not done much updating or repairs for the house, maybe the kitchen and the bathroom and things like that are 20 or 30, 40 years old, maybe there’s old floor coverings, things like that, those are situations where it might be a benefit to sell to someone like my company and just sell the house as is so they don’t have to worry about any updates or repairs.
What Repairs & Updates Should Be Done To List And Sell A House
A lot of people ask me if they were to do updates or repairs, if maybe just paint and carpeting might be a good thing. And what I always tell them is, in my opinion, either do everything to bring the house up to its full potential, or don’t worry about doing anything because it never fails when just a few things are done to the house, that when regular buyers will come through the house, they’ll wonder why the other things aren’t done.
Besides the repairs and updating though, the benefits that we offer are that a person doesn’t have to worry about getting the house market ready to start with, keeping the house in show ready condition, dealing with last minute showings from agents and dealing with potential buyers, that even after they have an original or initial agreement with you as a seller, will have a whole house inspection and an appraisal for the lender.
Typically, especially if your house hasn’t been updated and isn’t in pristine condition, those inspections will bring up deficiencies in the house, which will give the potential buyer more reasons to renegotiate their agreement with you. So what you thought you were going to net from the transaction may change dramatically through the process of those inspections and the renegotiations.
Take The Things You Want – Leave The Stuff You Don’t
The other big benefit, a couple benefits is one, with us, you can take the things you want to take, leave the things you want to leave and we’ll take care of any of the stuff that is left in the house.
Move On YOUR Date Of Choice
If you are moving to a home or an apartment community that you know you’re going to move to, especially if you’re on a waiting list but you don’t know exactly whether it’s going to be 30 or 60 days from now that you can move in, we can still typically buy your house, but you can retain possession of the house until you’re ready to make that transition into your new home so that you only have to worry about moving once, and there’s no pressure to force you out of your existing home. We can be very flexible with those timeframes.
If those benefits are a value to you, we may certainly be a good option to just buy your house instead of a traditional route of marketing and listing your property.
