In order to sell a damaged house in Shawnee, you’ll need to be able to get in front of the right buyers. Many buyers are looking for a house they can move in to right away or rent out for investment. The idea of taking on a new property, that comes with damages, can seem very stressful and off-putting to many buyers. Your best bet will likely be finding the right investors who don’t mind taking on the damaged property. At kcmoHomeBuyer, we are very experienced in fixing up properties and are happy to help if you need to sell a damaged house in Shawnee.
Your Selling Options
Quite obviously, if your house is damaged, you can fix it. This is likely going to be your best choice if you want to sell it for a price that is competitive with others on the market.
That said, many people don’t want to spend a bunch of money on a property they are selling without any guarantee of a return. Plus, the average homeowner is hiring repair people out of the yellow pages and paying retail prices for those repairs, which can get very costly.
For many of the homes we buy, we take the time to fix all the major problems spending money on foundations, roofs and heating and cooling systems. Then we decide if we want to do all the cosmetic repairs or offer the home at a discount to a retail buyer who wants to put their own personal stamp on their next home.
Instead of spending money on repairs, you can choose to list your house as-is. While you may be offering it at a fair price, if your average retail buyer sees pictures making the house look bad, or sees that there are a number of repairs required in your property description, you might have some trouble getting enough attention to the property in order to sell it.
So when Listing As-Is, we highly recommend taking steps to get the home as clean and presentable as possible and getting it marketed to the buyers who are looking for fixer-upper properties. We have a ton of buyers looking for this type of property as we sell a lot of them. But the average listing agent may not.
When we have a home that is in a fairly sound and safe condition, we will often spend some money on a professional cleaning company and make a few minor repairs and then sell it to a handy homeowner who is looking for a way to build a little sweat equity into their next home.
Typically the fastest and easiest way to sell a damaged property is to get it in front of an investor or a direct buyer. If you choose to sell to kcmoHomeBuyer, we will buy as-is, potentially saving you thousands of dollars in repairs. Plus, we are able to close very quickly so you can easily sell your damaged home in the Shawnee area, and move on with your life!

How Much Do You Want To Spend Upfront?
If you have the cash upfront, you might consider fixing up the house and putting it on the market. This can require a good amount of time, and will not come with any guarantees. If you spend a fortune fixing a damaged property in Shawnee, there is no guarantee you will get it back.
And quite often we see sellers spend money on the wrong repairs or spend too much on renovations and not be able to get their money back when they sell.
Who Is Your Ideal Buyer?
Is it realistic to fix up the property and put it on the market? Do you honestly believe that you will be able to find buyers for your damaged property, willing to pay what you need? If so, and if you have the time to wait and find out, consider listing your Shawnee house. Or is the damage so severe that your ideal buyer would actually be an investor, with the means to fix up the property? Many investors, such as the team at kcmoHomeBuyer, thrive on fixing up old homes, and helping owners escape their damaged Shawnee properties!

“Closed on my Schedule”
I loved working with Scott and the team at kcmoHomeBuyer. I was downsizing my house and moving to something smaller. Timing was everything and since I am not handy doing all the little things the realtor wanted me to do was not going to happen. They made an acceptable offer for my house, even took the stuff that I could not move to my new place and closed on my schedule so the timing worked out.
