Compare: Selling An Independence House To An Investor vs. Listing With An Agent
Even in a seller’s market like the one we have in the Independence Area, it’s smart to look at your options and see what will actually help you best reach your goals with the sale of your house. The pros and cons between selling an Independence House to an Investor vs Listing with an Agent will vary by seller. While you may be able to get a higher “top line” sales price listing with a local Independence Area agent, that doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket or less headache.

Crunch The Numbers And See Which Way Works Better for You . . .
When you really sit down and crunch the numbers you start to see the real benefits that each way of selling your Independence house offers.
Yes, here at kcmoHomeBuyer we won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your house… but we also offer other benefits that going the traditional house sale route can’t offer.
Like . . .
From offer to close and cash in your hand in as little as 7 days
You can get rid of the headache of that property fast and avoid paying any more utility payments, tax payments, insurance payments, mortgage payments, you get the drill. If you list your house and wait 90+ days to close… you have to figure in all of the costs of holding that property during the time you have that property listed and are waiting for the property to close.
Right now with COVID causing delays the title company might need 10 days, but we work with them to get closing completed as quickly as possible

*An inspection contingency lets the buyer have time to do an inspection and back out of the sale or negotiate a new price if there are repairs that need to be done. If you can’t come to an agreement with the buyer, the buyer has the right to back out of the sale. Similar, a financing contingency gives the buyer the wiggle room to back out of the purchase if they can’t obtain a loan or if the home doesn’t appraise for the value that the bank needs to close the loan.
Here at kcmoHomeBuyer we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
