Selling To Busy Beaver Homes vs. Listing With A Local MO Agent

Even in a seller’s market like MO, it’s a good idea to look at your options and see what will actually benefit you the most. While it’s true that you may be able to get a higher sales price listing with a local Kansas City agent, that doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket or less headache. Check out the details below to compare your options.

Look At The Numbers And See What Benefits You

When you dive into the pros and cons you really start to see the benefits that each option offers.

At Busy Beaver Homes we won’t be able to offer you full market value for your house… but we do offer other benefits that the traditional house sale route can’t offer.

For example…

From offer to close and cash in your hands in as little as 5 days

Avoid the headache of selling your home and avoid paying any more payments on utilities, taxes, insurance, mortgage, and repairs. If you list your house and it takes 90+ days to close… you have to include all of the costs incurred during that time as well.

Don’t worry about fixing anything up or cleaning the house every time a buyer comes to see it

We don’t care how dirty your house is. I guarantee you we’ve seen worse! We don’t care how many repairs are needed. If it’s a complete fixer, great! That’s even better! All we want is the opportunity to make an offer on your house. This saves you time and money that you can keep in your pocket.

We Cover Closings Costs Too

Because we are a full-service professional home buyer here in MO, we go above and beyond to make things easy for you. We pay for all of the closing costs, including escrow, title, and transfer fees. The price we offer you is what you get (of course minus any mortgage payoff or other encumbrances on the property). Pretty simple, right?

When you account for the time you would save by working with Busy Beaver Homes, add in the no-hassle experience, and the all money you’ll save on commissions, fees, and holding costs while you wait to sell the traditional route, we are the best viable option for many sellers.

It doesn’t hurt to see what we are able to offer you

Just fill out the short form below or give us a call at 816-226-6797! Our process is easy and you can close on whatever day you’d like. You have nothing to lose by getting an offer (no obligations – no pressure). If you list with a real estate agent, you could potentially lose thousands of dollars or months of your time by not at least looking into whether we may be the best option for you and requesting your FREE house offer by filling out the form below.

*An inspection contingency gives the buyer a time frame 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. 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 at the purchase price. At Busy Beaver Homes we don’t do inspections, so what we offer is what you get.

At Busy Beaver Homes, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
