What is it like to use the fast-cash approach to sell a home in foreclosure?

Foreclosure circumstances can be very difficult for the homeowner, but there’s light at the end of the tunnel if you’re willing to leverage property’s equity. We can show you how that’s done, with the least amount of financial and emotional stress possible.

How to Sell a Home in Foreclosure – Kansas Properties

Everything we do to help clients in this area depends on whether you’re in Kansas or Missouri, but it is possible to sell your home in foreclosure conditions. Homeowners can do this pre-foreclosure and sometimes after the foreclosure (depending on your location).

In Kansas, the state courts regulate foreclosures. There are a lot of motions and court appointments that have to occur, and it takes considerably longer than in Missouri. Before COVID, you could have done all of it within six to 12 months, but now it can take as long as 1 ½ years to fulfill every requirement.

During that time, you have the absolute right, as the title holder, to sell that house. There’s also a “redemption period” that allows you to sell your house, based on how much of your mortgage you’ve paid. This is regardless of who closes the deal (either via direct sale or through third parties).

Missouri Foreclosure Sales Happen Much Faster

In Missouri, the entire process occurs ahead of time, and you need to be ready because everything moves much quicker. The entire foreclosure process can finish within as little as 30 days, so you may not have much time. You can still sell the house, but you must do so within that time frame (not just a contract or agreement, but a firm closing on the house).

This makes dealing with a realtor almost impossible. You can, however, accomplish this within 10 to 12 business days, if you work with KC Property Guys. There may be competitors who advertise the ability to do this within three days, but it’s not realistic with proper underwriting. We can get it done within a couple weeks, so you can meet the foreclosure deadline with a fast sale with us.

You have a better chance working with a realtor in Kansas. In fact, some of our closing companies and realtors are quite proficient at handling property sales during foreclosure. Regardless of the route you choose, we can help you explore all your options during a pending foreclosure.

Selling Your House Quickly to Avoid Foreclosure

Then again, there are also steps you can take to avoid the problem altogether. Don’t forget to check out our previous article where we focused on ways to avoid foreclosure by selling your house quickly. This includes options like making a short sale or selling to a cash investor (our specialty).

Foreclosure is not the only crisis we handle. We also assist clients trying to avoid bankruptcy by using the equity in their home to satisfy lenders. Again, none of these solutions are “one-size-fits-all,” but it’s great to have some flexibility rather than face the full wrath of lenders and debt collectors alone.
