Selling Real Estate in Kansas City in the SpringThe ideal time to try to sell a home is in the Spring, but what if your house is in terrible disrepair? Sometimes homeowners find themselves in a situation where they don’t know what course of action to take because of the condition of the property.  The Kansas City real estate market has been a hot seller’s market, but it may not feel like it if you list a house for sale that isn’t move-in ready.


It can be more difficult to sell a home that is in disrepair because the buyer may not be able to qualify for a FHA loan due to the poor condition of the property.  Also, if a buyer thinks the home is neglected they will wonder what is wrong with the home that they can’t see. Here are some suggestions of improvements to make before trying to sell your home:

  • Patch holes and cracks in walls and ceilings.
  • Replace worn or stained carpeting.
  • Repaint dark or marred walls with neutral paint (not white).
  • Replace broken windows and glass.
  • Repair the roof and replace missing shingles.
  • Change out dated light fixtures and update ceiling fans.
  • Replace worn or dated drapes and window coverings.
  • Fix code violations.
  • Repair leaky faucets.

If you don’t want to, or aren’t able to, make necessary home repairs before selling your property, there are buyers who will purchase homes in disrepair.  Real estate investors like Class Act Property Solutions are always searching for distressed properties to buy and renovate.  Discounting the sale price of your property may be a better option for you than making repairs that are needed to get the house in move-in ready condition for a retail buyer.

If you have a home in disrepair that you would like to try to sell this Spring without making any repairs, please contact Class Act Property Solutions.   We’ll come to your home, evaluate the condition of the property, and make you a fair offer to purchase the property.  Please call us today at 913-489-3699.
