Selling To People First Home Buyers vs. Listing With A Local Missouri Agent
Even in a sellers market like MO, it’s smart to look at your options and see what will actually help you best reach your goals with the sale of your house. While you may be able to get a higher “top line” sales price listing with a local St. Louis agent, that doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket or less headache. Dive into the details below to compare your options.

Work The Numbers And See Which Way Helps You Get What You Want…
When you really work the numbers you start to see the real benefits that each way of selling your Missouri house offers.
Yes, here at People First Home Buyers we cannot always pay full retail value for your house, though sometimes we can NET you the same or even MORE… but we also offer other benefits that going the traditional house sale route can’t offer. Intangible things such as closing on your timeline, knowing what you’re getting up front, and moving assistance.
From offer to close and cash in your hand in as little as 7 days
You can get rid of the headache of that property fast and avoid paying any more utility payments, tax payments, insurance payments, mortgage payments, you get the drill. If you list your house and wait 90+ days to close… you have to figure in all of the costs of holding that property during the time you have that property listed and are waiting for the property to close.
Don’t worry about fixing anything up or cleaning your house again and again for buyer after buyer
How many times do you feel like dragging your family out of the house so a potential buyer can come see it? How many potential buyers before you get an offer? How many offers before you get one that actually closes? We don’t care how dirty your house is (we’ve seen worse!) or how many repairs are needed (a complete fixer? great! we love projects)... we’d like to make an offer on your house. When we make an offer, you can be confident that it’s going to close. This saves you time and money that you can keep in your pocket.
Custom offers to fit your family
We not only stand out from a tradition sale, but we also stand out from other home buyers. We have several methods to purchase houses; from making an all-cash offer, to our Mortgage Relief Service where WE MAKE YOUR PAYMENTS until your house sells, short sale, or even our Flip Partnership Program, where we bring the experience and resources to renovate and SHARE THE PROFIT with you!
Don’t worry about paying those pesky closing fees (we’ve got you covered)
Because we are a full-service professional home buyer here in Missouri, we make it easy for you. We pay for all of the closing costs. What we offer you is what you get (of course minus any mortgage payoff or other encumbrances on the property). Pretty refreshing eh?
So when you add up the time you could save by working with People First Home Buyers, the no-hassle experience, and the money you’ll save on commissions, fees, and holding costs while you wait to sell the traditional route… for many area home owners selling to a professional house buyer is the best viable option.

*An inspection contingency lets the buyer have time to do an inspection and back out of the sale or negotiate a new price if there are repairs that need to be done. If you can’t come to an agreement with the buyer, the buyer has the right to back out of the sale. Similar, a financing contingency gives the buyer the wiggle room to back out of the purchase if they can’t obtain a loan or if the home doesn’t appraise for the value that the bank needs to close the loan.
Here at People First Home Buyers we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
