Selling Directly To Home Offer KC vs. Listing With Us
Before you make a decision about how to sell your home, you should first be aware that you have options. No matter what your goals are, we are certain we have a solution that will work for you! You might be able to get a higher final sale price by listing, however, a fast and direct sale can save you time and money upfront. This may be more lucrative in the long run.
Here’s how some of the numbers will stack up:
|Listing Your House||A Direct Sale to Home Offer KC|
|Commissions / Fees:||Approximately 6% of the final sale price is paid by the seller||Zero commissions. It is a direct sale|
|Who Pays Closing Costs?:||You can expect about 2% of the final sale price to go towards closing costs||We pay all costs.|
|Inspection & Financing Contingency*:||Yes. And you must be prepared as sales often fall through||None. We buy as-is. And because we are paying without using financing, no contingency is needed|
|Appraisal Needed:||Yes. Most lenders will require an appraisal.||No. We don’t require an appraisal be done when we purchase directly!|
|Days Until Sold:||Unknown. Average of 39+ days on the market, with an additional 30 or so while financing is processed.||Immediate offer.|
|Number of Showings:||Varies.||1 (Just Us)|
|Closing Date:||30-60 +/- days after you accept an offer.||On the day you choose… in as little as 7 days.|
|Who Pays For Repairs?:||Negotiated between buyer and seller.||We do.|
These are just a few things to consider…
In addition, you will need to think about the urgency in which you wish to move or sell. Do you want to keep paying bills on a house while you are waiting for it to sell?
If you have the time to commit, some cash upfront for repairs and upgrades and the patience to wait for an unknown buyer, listing your home has the potential to get you a higher final sale price. But always remember, there are n guarantees when you list. You will not know when an offer will come in, or if you will get an amount close to your asking price. A direct offer will likely be less than what listing will get you, but once you factor in out of pocket costs to list, bills while you are waiting and finally commissions and fees, you might find a direct sale puts MORE money in your pocket when all is said and done!

*An inspection contingency allows the buyer time for an inspection and the ability to back out of the sale if results aren’t favorable. Similarly, 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 in order to close the loan. (Because we buy as-is, and don’t use bank financing, you will not need to worry about these things when selling direct!)
