As we all adapt to these changing ways of life, people are wondering if everything has just stopped? The answer is no.

Please reach out to kcmoHomeBuyer today at (816) 408-3600.

Can you still sell your house during the coronavirus pandemic?

Absolutely! There are still tons of houses being sold, both on the traditional market and with direct home buyers. Buyers usually go online to search for homes, and right now they have more time to do it! Websites like Facebook and Zillow have reported increases in traffic as people are spending more time at home.
We have noticed that many people who don’t need to sell a house have pulled their homes off the market and are waiting until this is all over.  But there are still people looking for a home to purchase.

What if I need to sell right away?

This will depend on you and how you want to work it.  Right now many buyers, including us here at kcmoHomeBuyer, are out looking at vacant houses for sale.  But homes that are occupied, buyers are asking to see photos or video walk-throughs before coming out.  And if you can do that for us, we can work through the situation and find a way to view work with you while still practicing safe social distancing.

Can kcmoHomeBuyer help me with my house in Overland Park with everything going on?

First, let’s hop on a call to discuss your selling goals and your situation. We can talk on the phone, have a Zoom call, meet up on a Google Hangout, or Facetime, whatever is the easiest for you. We can even do a property walk-through with you via video conference! All of this can be done from the comfort of your home without having to come in contact with anyone or go anywhere. No matter what is going on out there, we are still able to serve you, determine the value of your house, and help you sell it quickly.

Should I wait for the Coronavirus to be over before trying to sell my house?

No! Right now is a great time to sell because there is less competition! Many people are holding off, however, there are still people out there who are ready to buy your house right now! Buyers are hungry for properties, and yours might be the one that will catch their eye. By getting the selling process started right now, it ensures you’ll be able to sell faster than those who wait.

Can I stay in the house until this is all over?

Yes! You may be hesitant to sell right now because you don’t want to find somewhere else to live during all of this. If you need to stay in the home until this has subsided, we are more than happy to work with you. We are very flexible in our process and can work with you on closing now or in the future.  Whatever it takes to make it easy for you to sell your house during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Tips From the CDC

While we want to serve our community the best we can through all of this, we also want people to remain safe and vigilant. The CDC is continuously updating its information to help keep people protected from this awful virus. If you do have people in your home to take a look around.  Please take steps to sanitize all areas that they might touch and after they leave, do so again.  Have them walk through quickly while staying a safe distance and then have all conversations on the phone.

If you have had to deal with the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic, either from being infected or not being able to work, we understand you have had a difficult time and working through a home sale can make things even more stressful.  We are here for you and are prepared to help you with any challenging situation you may be facing. Please reach out to us at any time. (816) 408-3600
