3 Misconceptions People Have About Selling Their Kansas City Homes in 2022

The methods for selling a home have changed a lot in the past few years. Old beliefs about what is required to sell a house have become obsolete. So read on as we explore three of these lingering misconceptions people have about selling their Kansas City homes in 2022. 

Prep Work and Repairs 

One of the people’s misconceptions about selling their Kansas City homes in 2022 is that you have to spend money to make money. Some sellers prefer to avoid the inconvenience of keeping their home picture perfect. In contrast, others do not have the time, desire, or financial means to do the painting, updating, and all of the work involved to bring a top market dollar for their property. Other home sellers are concerned about the cost of repairs.

Alternatively, there are direct buyers, like the Tuckers at kcmoHomeBuyer, who are cash buyers who purchase homes in as-is condition. At kcmoHomeBuyer, we provide you with a fair cash offer for your home. So, whether your property is new or like new, or has become run down, at kcmoHomeBuyer, we can discuss your needs and your options so you can compare our fast, fair cash offer with a listing option from our sister company that lists properties. Then you can decide.

We’ll lay out how much you’d profit from a traditional listing vs. all of the numbers used to reach our offer, which you’ll agree is fair. 

You Must List To Sell

Another one of the misconceptions people have about selling their Kansas City homes in 2022 is that their only option is either listing with a Realtor or listing on the real estate market themselves as a for sale by owner property.  Many homeowners consider selling as an FSBO to save the real estate commissions.

Some sellers prefer to work with a professional, direct buyer like Kim Tucker from kcmoHomeBuyer, to ensure that they’re not going to face any legal repercussions from the sale or disclosure laws.  With our full-service team of professionals on call, we can and will buy your home directly, and we never charge commissions. There are no hidden fees in the offer we provide, we can even cover your closing costs if that is the best option for you.

Keep in mind we’ve been buying with fast cash offers since 2000 and have the funding ready to go so we can close fast.

The Selling Process is Slow

Another one of the misconceptions people have about selling their Kansas City homes in 2022 is that they will have to wait months before they close, even if they sell reasonably quickly.

Some sellers are willing to pay for the convenience of speed that direct buyers like those at kcmoHomeBuyer offer as an alternative. At kcmoHomeBuyer, we are professional investors who have a solution for all types of real-world problems. For example, a job relocation costs a fortune in holding costs as you wait out the traditional listing process and wait for a buyer and then go through the hassles of loan approvals with no end date in sight. At kcmoHomeBuyer, we provide a fast, guaranteed closing date, typically within weeks, that can be at a date that coincides with your plans for moving. 

The bottom line is that the Tuckers at kcmoHomeBuyer live and work here in Kansas City, and we care about our neighbors; our goal is to make a deal you’ll feel good about long after leaving the closing table. At kcmoHomeBuyer, our policy is full transparency; we take the time to explain the process step-by-step. Why not talk to one of our team at kcmoHomeBuyer about any hurdles standing in the way of your sale and find out how a direct sale offers solutions. You can rest assured that your direct buyer from kcmoHomeBuyer will listen to your concerns and answer any of your questions to your satisfaction. Contact kcmoHomeBuyer at (816) 408-3600.
