When you sell your house in Kansas City and beyond, it’s important to consider all of your available options. It’s not necessary to hire a real estate agent, have your house listed for 6+ months, spend a ton of money on repairs, house showings, and more – just to get the listing live. It is true that traditional selling methods work for some homeowners, we want to help you learn about all of your selling options so that you can make the best decision that will ultimately help you reach your goals.
We have put together the table below to show you some of the differences between hiring a real estate agent vs. selling your house directly to a cash home buying company like us. If you have any questions or would like to chat, give us a call at
|Hiring A Real Estate Agent|
|Commissions / Fees:||Most home sellers, like you, will pay their agent around 6% in agent commissions.||$0 – We never charge a commission!|
|Who Pays Closing Costs?||On average, your closing costs will run between 1-3% depending upon your property.||$0 – We cover the closing costs for you!|
|Inspection & Financing Contingency*:||This is required by most banks, which causes a large amount of home sales to fall through.||Not required!|
|Appraisal Needed:||This is also required by most banks before they will fund the loan, assuming the appraisal comes back okay.||Not required!|
|Average Days Until Sold:||Many factors come into play here, but most homes sit on the market for well over 100 days!||We’ll make you a near immediate cash offer for your home.|
|Number of Showings?||Unknown, but you will need to keep the house ready for more showings until it closes.||1 – Just us to do our walkthrough and discuss our offer with you.|
|Closing Date:||The escrow and closing process can take on average 1-2 months after you accept the buyers offer.||We can close in just a few days!|
|Who Pays For Repairs?||This is something that you will often negotiate after the inspections have been completed. You usually end up paying many of the repair costs.||We’ll cover all of the repairs and costs associated with them, so you can sell your house as is.|
*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 Two Hands Homes, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal!
How Will The Numbers Add Up For You?
It is important that you explore and understand all of your home selling options before making a commitment. Not everyone has the time, money, or energy to go through the listing process and everything that comes with it. It can be expensive (as you learned from above), often takes months, and is usually prone to delays or other problems in the process. If you are looking for a fast, transparent, and fair way to sell your house in Kansas City and beyond, then we would love to work with you!
We encourage you to check out our “How It Works” page to learn how we make our offers and what is involved with the offer process. Once you factor in the time you will save, the savings from repairs and constant showings, and the hassle of negotiating with several buyers – we know that you will see that selling to us may be a better option for you. Here are a few more benefits of selling your KC home to us, that we would like you to consider.
A Fast Sale Can Save You Thousands Of Dollars!
How much are you spending right now and each month to own your house? When you sell your house quickly to a company like ours, you’ll no longer have to pay taxes, insurance, utilities, or the always increasing property taxes. The hassles, expense, and burden of routine maintenance and repairs to your property will go away too. If you happen to have a mortgage that is or has become unaffordable, that will go away too when you sell your house to us. All of these things can add up to thousands of dollars … and this becomes even more expensive while your house sits listed on the MLS with a real estate agent for a long period of time.
Sell Your Kansas City House Without Cleaning, Showings, or Repairs
We all know the obnoxious routine … when you list your house on the MLS with an agent, then you’ll need to get the house ready to be seen by countless other people. This often means breaking out your hammer for the repairs that need to be made, deep cleaning throughout the whole house, rearranging your personal belongings, staging the house, taking photos, and much more to put your house in the best possible light for the listing.
Others have told us that spending money on a house that you would rather sell is counterintuitive and often does not provide the return on the money spent that they had hoped for. You as the house seller do take on a certain amount of risk when you spend money on your house prior to selling it, especially since there is NO guarantee that your house will sell or that you’ll get the price you are asking for (and to cover your additional out of pocket expenses from prior to listing).
Sell Your House Without Any Fees Or Commissions
When you work with us at Two Hands Homes, you don’t need to worry about any fees or commissions. We do not charge fees or commissions when you sell your house to us. Beyond the commissions and fees, there are often other costs that you would incur with an agent, including repairs, marketing costs, staging, photography, drone footage, closing costs, insurance, and much more. All of these things can add us fast! Contact us now to see how we can help you save a ton of money by buying your house from you.
