Regardless of the circumstances, selling a home is never easy, particularly one in which you have lived for a long time and made many happy memories.
For Marian and Lyndell Stone it was a combination of leaving happy memories, desiring to downsize, and quite frankly, easing some of the burden of care and upkeep. “Lyndell was getting tired of mowing the lawn!” Marian laughed, “and we both thought it was time to find a place without as many stairs.”
The Stones spoke with a few realtors, but decided they preferred not to list with one and be subjected to prospective buyer appointments and Open Houses while still living there, or to have to undertake extensive renovations. They had read about KC Property Pros, and decided to give them a call.
“We were curious to see how the process would work and how much we would receive if we sold to KC Property Pros versus selling through a realtor, or selling it ourselves,” recalled Marian. “So we made an appointment.”
Never miss a local story.
Brandon Logan, owner of KC Property Pros, started the business in 2005 and has extensive real estate experience that allows him to realistically value the homes his company purchases. Brett Shelton, who joined him in 2009, possesses expertise in accounting and remodeling. Together, they are able to offer homeowners the best advice on how to sell their house, even if KC Property Pros isn’t their best option.
“Homeowners need a buyer they can trust – that’s us,” Logan said. “They don’t need a national company that just puts their house into a formula to make a low-ball offer. They need to sell but want someone to help them make the best decision. We offer honest solutions for local sellers.”
After touring a house, Logan usually makes an offer within 24 hours and since the company pays cash, the seller can avoid going through a more conventional selling process, and often close within as little as a week.
“We wanted a quick and easy sale,” Lyndell said, “and that is exactly what we got working with Brandon.”
KC Property Pros’ flexible options allowed the Stones to take their time to both downsize their belongings and find a place to live, even after closing escrow.
“We set the closing date and Brandon said if we were not ready then we could extend the date to suit ourselves,” Lyndell said. To that Marian added, “I loved my yard and hated to leave all my flowers, so Brandon said I could take any plants I wanted.”
If the home you want to sell needs repairs, KC Property Pros has the expertise to help with that as well.
“It’s very important to make the right repairs even if the repairs are only cosmetic,” Logan explained. “But repairs can be very expensive, especially if the seller does not have a background in construction or design.”
To that Shelton added, “Because we know the Kansas City area real estate market and local home values, we use our own local construction company to do the renovation, and all of the money generated by buying, renovating and reselling the homes stays in Kansas City. These advantages allow us to pay more than our competitors.”
Whether moving due to downsizing, a divorce, changing jobs, inheriting a property, or wanting something larger, KC Property Pros offers a variety of solutions for homeowners needing or wanting to sell, without going through the conventional home sale process.
Logan points out that his background as a real estate agent is especially helpful to homeowners.
“I have experience working with banks in a variety of situations,” he said, “including foreclosures and short sales. If you know someone going through hard times and about to lose their home, have them call me as soon as possible. We can help them avoid foreclosure and get them a fresh start in life.”
The Stones couldn’t be happier with their decision to sell their home with KC Property Pros. “Brandon is so easy-going and is such a nice person to work with,” said Marian. “We would recommend KC Property Pros to everyone who wants a quick and easy no hassle sale.”
