How Can I Sell Owner-Occupied Homes?

Table of Contents

So, how do you sell owner-occupied homes?

Well, it’s a lot easier when you work with professional closing companies and use the cash-buyer process. This works much more efficiently than anything you can expect selling an occupied house in the conventional real-estate market.

KC Property Guys Handles Everything When It’s Time to Sell Owner-Occupied Homes

When you work with us to sell an occupied home, you can count on a formal process, but a much more streamlined version. There is still a formal closing, which is not merely a hand-shake, a lawyer agreement, or something with a bunch of third parties involved. KC Property Guys basically does all of it for you, which is why it’s so convenient, yet still legitimate and reliable.

We do the inspections, make the offer, do the closing, rehab everything if necessary, and eventually sell it again. Our approach works for houses with current tenants, foreclosed homes, inherited homes, and an array of other complicated situations.

This Works Even with Owner Occupation

So, with an owner occupant, it works a lot like a normal process, just without all the headaches of renegotiating, multiple inspections, and other hassles. When we meet you in the home, do a walkthrough assessment, make you an offer, and establish a closing date (which can be days, weeks, or months). Then we work with closing companies (who we hire) and deal with them without bothering you with the bureaucratic details.

Best of all, this guarantees a clean title closing without the risk of someone backing out on the deal. That never happens with our method, whereas it’s very common in everyday real estate.

Way Simpler Closing Processes

We actually pay good money for that clean closing process, too, because it’s worth it to us for there to be a smooth transition. This makes it much simpler, safer, and the process has plenty of built-in warranties. It’s much more streamlined, and you can even stay in your house for a while after the sale.

Since the closing process goes through closing companies with professional closures, you don’t even need to be present if you don’t want to be there. That’s pretty common when there’s a property sale involving a recently divorced couple.

Some clients close the deal remotely through notaries, or even by signing off on it via email. For many folks who work with us, the only thing that matters is that they receive the funds wired to their banking account on the closing day. KC Property Guys makes that happen every time.

Just Watch Out for Scams or Bad Companies

As usual, the cash-buying endeavor only works if you take the time to identify a good buying company and avoid obvious scams. Here’s a few quick tips on how to steer clear of unscrupulous firms:

  • Avoid the ones who cannot demonstrate a clear buying process.
  • Never tolerate pushy buyers. This is just as true for selling a home in the traditional market as it is with cash buying.
  • You shouldn’t need to wire money to them to initiate the process. If they hit you with unexpected fees (for no rhyme or reason), then you’re probably dealing with a scammer.

Also, as a rule of thumb, only do business with companies and contractors who have clear and informative websites. They should also be able to show you their licensing, bonding, and evidence of positive consumer reviews.
