Most people know what a realtor is and have pre-determined ideas or have experiences about what they do for you, as a seller. On the other hand, some sellers might not know what to expect when working with a professional home buyer in Raytown, Missouri. Sellers can expect a professional homebuyer to provide simple, stress-free transactions.
Professional home buyers in Raytown, Missouri typically close faster than traditional home buyers, and usually in paying full at closing. Traditional home purchases usually require qualifications from banks, mortgage underwriting time, property inspection time and the buyer may not end up qualifying in the end. There are also normally no commissions paid to a buyer’s or seller’s agent which means thousands of dollars in savings. The usual commission is 3% per side, so if you sell your home for $300,000, you would have to pay $18,000 in commissions alone! Professional home buyers also may not charge transaction fees; if they do, they are extremely low in comparison to the commission or closing costs you would have to pay otherwise. They also provide mail-away closings which is a wonderful thing for out of state owners.
Purchasing Homes As-Is
Professional home buyers in Missouri will usually purchase homes as-is. As a seller, this means you do not have to worry about repairs before closing or any other additional expenses you were not planning on. There are some companies that do not require inspections which makes it a truly as-is transaction.
But as-is can mean a lot more than no repairs. Often, especially for out of state owners who might be selling a house they inherited, they don’t have the time to spend clearing out all the stuff from the house and this is where the professional home buyer comes in. They take the house and the stuff or at least most of the stuff and work to find ways to get it all removed, repurposed, donated, sold or in some cases thrown away.
When you decide to use a professional home buyer in Raytown, Missouri, you will not have to worry about going through a roller coaster of emotions. There are no frustrating, middle-of-dinner phone calls asking if you are available to show your home. You don’t have to worry about leaving your home spotless every day before heading to work, just in case there is a showing while you’re gone. You don’t have to worry about possibly running into a buyer’s agent or their clients or dealing with them asking you questions that you really shouldn’t answer anyway. You also don’t have to worry about buyers arguing with you over which furniture you are taking and what you are leaving.
Move Out Time
Professional home buyers are in it for the investment. They are not expecting to move into the home on a particular day. Most home buyers will structure a transaction with a closing and move out time frame that fits your needs. This is extremely helpful, especially with such quick closing timeframes. Also, you may not even have to clean the home when you leave. You can simply pack your personal items and furniture you want to keep and leave the rest, just let us know what you plan to leave when we come to take a look.

NOT PENALIZED FOR NOT GETTING EVERYTHING CLEANED OUT OF THE HOUSE
I liked the fact that I wasn’t penalized or felt pressure for not getting everything cleaned out of the house. There was over 40 years and three families’ worth of treasure stored in the house, making me feel that the challenge of cleaning it was going to be impossible. I did what I could and you never hesitated in telling me that it’s ok to leave the rest behind.
