We get the question “why should I sell to you instead of using a realtor?” a lot. It’s a great question and one we are more than happy to answer. The average person when selling their home using a realtor pays out over $15,000 dollars of their own money of hidden costs. That is a lot of money to fork out when you are trying to sell your house cash Kansas City. There are a lot of hidden fees and costs that homeowners don’t consider when using realtors. One of them being real estate commissions which can be 6% of the sales price of your home. That’s 6% of your sales price that is going to someone else and not you.
Another hidden cost are photography fees which can sometimes add up to be $400 if you’re getting advanced aerial photography and video walkthroughs.
There are also staging fees which is on average over a thousand dollars. A realtor will often tell you that if your home looked a certain way that it will sell faster and so they want to use staging furniture. This will make you have to deal with the hassle of renting furniture and decor and all the costs that come with that.
Realtors will also often want you to make improvements to your home to let it sell for more and faster. They will want you to make aesthetic updates to add to the curb appeal of your house. That can include, painting the entire house, carpet replacement or carpet cleaning, landscaping, cleaning of windows, driveway, gutters, you name it. Sometimes they will want you to replace big ticket items like a roof or HVAC system. These things can be extremely expensive and cut the profit you make of selling your home.
