Is it time to sell your house? Possibly helping sell mom’s House As-Is? Or perhaps dad’s house?
Has the house been it been sitting empty for a little while? Maybe as mom or day recovers from their latest ailment? You know it’s just a matter of time before she has to either hire in-home care, move in with you or ultimately move into some sort of senior living community.
When the time comes, that you need to sell your house in Kansas City or sell mom’s house we have some things for you to consider.
For homes that need updates, remodeling, or total rehabbing, standard real estate sales listings are not necessarily the best option to sell for a fair price. Some homeowners are not financially or physically able to carry out the necessary work to compete on the Kansas City market. And if you are helping a loved one with their home, on top of dealing with your normal daily lives, you may not have the time to do what it takes to get the home ready to be sold.
And if you are contemplating senior housing, you are looking at all the many expensive costs associated with senior housing, and selling the home to either pay for that care or selling the home and exhausting the funds helps you get the government to step up and help you pay.
If this sounds like some of the things you have been considering, then selling the home as-is makes a great solution for you and your loved one. Not only does it save you the time of cleanout and fix up, but also all the time of listing, the hassle of showings, dealing with negotiations, waiting to find the buyer, waiting for the buyer’s loan process, or even spending cash out of pocket to help the buyers qualify for their mortgage loans.
Let’s take a look at five reasons you may want to sell your house as-is in Kansas City.
Yes, I get it, when we buy your house for cash we don’t pay full retail. We do buy at a discount over what the rock star realtor in your area might be able to sell the home for. But remember to get the rock star home prices you need a rock star home, costing time and money on preparing the home for showings. Many realtors want the home (1) cleaned out, (2) repairs made, and (3) at least professionally cleaned, if not (4) updated and (5) staged. This is a great reason to sell your house as-is in Kansas City to an experienced professional buyer like those at kcmoHomeBuyer. You won’t have to concern yourself with any cosmetic fixes, such as painting or modernizing appliances or the interior. And you certainly won’t have to worry about cleaning out all the contents or making the home sparkling clean.
Saving time is a motivating reason to sell your house as-is in Kansas City to a direct buyer, like kcmoHomeBuyer, especially if you are looking at a home that you grew up in that mom or dad had neglected for a for the most part over the last 20 years. For sellers that face weeks or months of going through things, cleaning up things, and living through all the emotions that entail, selling the home as-is can resolve the problem of time pressures of traveling back and forth between the properties.
When you work with a direct buyer like kcmoHomeBuyer, you can stop worrying about making repairs which is another reason to sell your house as-is in Kansas City. What unknown problems the inspection might reveal won’t be keeping you up at night anymore. You might know of a few small issues that Mom or Dad just had not gotten around to fixing. But you might not know about some of the major issues that were caused by those minor issues.
And another thing to consider right now is the SEVERE shortage of qualified professionals to actually make the repairs and the supply shortage of many of the items they need to make any repairs and updates. This can cost you months, or sell the home as-is fairly quickly.
Saving the commission that real estate agents take from the profits at closing is an excellent reason to sell your house as-is in Kansas City to an experienced professional buyer like those at kcmoHomeBuyer. With a direct sale, there are no hidden fees or expensive surprises waiting for you at the closing, either. The amount offered is what you will receive in cash through a direct sale.
Consider you list the house with a Realtor if you can find one that will let you list it as-is, with all the stuff. You get real estate investor offers, probably similar to what we as cash buyers might offer, but because it’s listed you need to then pay your real estate agent 5% to 10% in commission, plus quite often a $300 to $500 additional administrative fee for them to pay their assistant, what’s up with that?
No Buyers Backing Out
Often, regular buyers who are working through a real estate agent will insist on contingencies, even with as-is properties, that will allow them to back out of deals upon learning of serious problems found during the inspection. If they are buying the house to live in, planning on building sweat equity with a fixer-upper, if they are getting a loan, their lender might require significant repair or back out of the loan.
So another reason you might want to sell your house as-is in Kansas City to a direct buyer like kcmoHomeBuyer is that you will have a guaranteed closing date. Direct buyers completely understand what is involved with buying a home in as-is condition and are willing to take on the risks.
Here at kcmohomebuyer, we assess the condition of the home and have seen just about everything so we know what things cost. That allows us to give you a solid, cash offer, that you can count on to close. We are not going to change our minds at inspections and because we are paying cash, our lender is not going to back out at the last minute either.
No Holding Costs
Bearing the costs of an extra home that no one is living in is a huge motivating reason to sell your house as-is in Kansas City an experienced professional buyer like Kim & Don here at kcmoHomeBuyer. And if you are helping Mom or Dad sell their home, each and every month it sits there empty costs you or them several $100 in utilities, in maintenance and upkeep, in taxes, and in insurance. And speaking of insurance, if the home has been vacant for more than 30 days, Mom or Dad’s old insurance policy may not be any good, so please if you get nothing out of this article, and you have a vacant house, please consult with your insurance agent to make sure you are covered.
You’ve probably sold a few houses in your day and are all too familiar with the expenses of maintaining getting it ready to sell, maintaining it through the process, and even living through the process.
