Home Selling Options

Selling the house – the family’s largest asset – is generally the first thing families will consider when determining how to pay for their loved one’s care.

It seems to be the simplest option but is often the most emotional part of the transition journey.  The average American home contains well over 300,000 items of sentimental value. Families can spend months going through ‘the stuff’ before they even address the condition of the house itself.

Once You've Decided to Sell You Have Options

Option 1: 

Certified Buyer

(7 to 30 Days)
Cash Buyer, As-Is Buyer,
Senior Transition Buyer

This option can save families valuable time, money, and resources since there is no need to clear out the house or "prepare" it to be sold.  This option can also free up funds faster when compared to a traditional Realtor listing sales process.

Option 2: 

Family Member

(30-60 Days)
Buy or Rent

If all family members are in agreement and the family member has the means, this could be a feasible option. However, the family member may not be able to get financing to buy it.  Plus if your loved one is working Medicaid or Veterans Benefits the increased cash in the bank or rental income could affect eligibility.

Option 3: 


(90-180 Days)
Traditional Listing
Traditional Buyer

If the home is newer or recently updated this can be a good option to sell the house in a timely manner for the most money.  But this comes at the cost of getting the home ready, marketing, and the worry of the inspections repairs, appraisals, and the buyer not qualifying for a loan.

Option 4: 


(60-90 Days)
Out of State
Internet-Based Buyer

New option in the last five years.  You submit your property online and receive back an offer based on a computer-generated model.  The computer crunches numbers to make an offer that may be slightly lower or slightly higher than what you might see on sites like Zillow.  Then you provide detail about the house, photos or video and they may make an inspection.  Their offer may go down in the process.

Which Option is Right for Your Family?

The right option for you is going to depend a whole lot on time and the condition of the property.  If you have a lot of time to figure things out and get the property ready, a Realtor or For Sale by Owner might be the option you would take.  Or if your loved one's home is newer or recently updated and they have already gone through the process of paring down their stuff, the Realtor route might be best.

If the home if the typical average "forever" home that the senior has lived in for years, then your family may need a lot more time to get the home "ready".  The time that your family may not have to devote.

By the time a family is thinking about long-term care, their loved one’s health is usually declining and their need for care is becoming increasingly urgent. The sooner that you can get your loved one transitioned into care, the safer they’ll be. Waiting for the house to sell before taking that next step can cause delays in getting your loved one the care they need.

Your most important consideration should always be how soon your loved one needs to access care.

I highly recommend.

We got a letter from Kim about Dad’s house a few months ago after one of our garage sales. Her son Scott called us back, asked a few questions, looked our house and made an offer. My brothers had been trying to fix it up to sell for almost a year . . . that was not going well. We took Scotts offer, he made the process very easy and convenient, we could even sign things via email. We didn’t have to finish cleaning out the house, we didn’t have to make any repairs and no more going to mow the yard.

I highly recommend giving Kim or Scott a call, you will be glad you did.

On top of the process every step of the way!

Great experience.  I was selling my fathers house. Very glad he sent a letter.  The house was dirty, it was stinky, it was packed with junk.  I just didn’t want to deal with it.  

I called Scott as well as several of the ads I found on google for people who buy houses.  Scott was great, he showed up when he said he would, he listened to what I had to say. He made me an offer and left it with me so I could “sleep on it”, which gave me time to review if with my brother.

Scott was on top of the process every step of the way, making sure I was informed and knew what was going on and when we had some paperwork issues at the title company, helped me work through that as well.

If you want a hassle free sale, give Scott and kcmoHomeBuyer a call.

Fantastic Experience . . .

..Scott was great working me through the entire process. His patience, availability and willingness to answer my questions were greatly appreciated.


“Closed on my Schedule”

I loved working with Scott and the team at kcmoHomeBuyer. I was downsizing my house and moving to something smaller. Timing was everything and since I am not handy doing all the little things the realtor wanted me to do was not going to happen. They made an acceptable offer for my house, even took the stuff that I could not move to my new place and closed on my schedule so the timing worked out.

Like Doing Business with a Trusted Friend!

From the very beginning, I could tell he (Donald Tucker) was honest. He empathized with what we were going through and how hard it was to let our family home go. He stayed on top of things as they occurred and it felt like doing business with a trusted friend. He was very reassuring and explained every step of the process. Thank you so much.


“Fair Price”

“We received a fair price for our mother’s house. We were very relieved because we had so much emotional attachment to the house that it would have been hard for us to sell in a typical manner. ” If you are on the fence about selling a house to kcmoHomeBuyer . . .”Do it, you won’t be sorry!”


My experience with this company was just totally amazing. I am very thankful for contacting this company.

If you want to sell your home, please contact Scott Tucker at  My experience with this company was just totally amazing.  Hassle-free no agent fees, costly inspection repairs, no open house days, no never-ending potential buyers who want to deduct this and that from the asking price.  Scott Tucker gave me a very fair price for my home.  Also, after I agreed to a closing date, I needed an extension date and they agreed to my time frame.  Scott Tucker was awesome to work with from start to closing, with no hidden fees.  I am very thankful for contacting this company.  Thanks again from Nadine T.


Glad we Called

We had inherited Mom and Dad’s house a few years ago and had decided to rent it out. But being a landlord was not the best choice for us as it was a never-ending battle to keep it rented, keep the rent coming in and to fix it up every time that didn’t work. We were fed up and ready to be done with the whole situation. We called Scott at kcmoHomeBuyer and he was able to talk us through the situation on the phone, meet us at the house and make us an offer. We didn’t have to fix a thing, he took all the junk the last tenant left, and we closed a couple of weeks later.

Glad we called.

If you need to sell, no matter the situation, please, don’t hesitate to call.

I was in a probate/estate sale situation. My father passed away with no will. I had to go to court just to be named the administrator. I didn’t know what to do or who to call. I heard about KcmoHomebuyer and gave them a call. I met Scott at my father’s house. He was very, very sincere and helpful. I was pleased with his offer and as they say, the rest is history. If you need to sell, no matter the situation, please, don’t hesitate to call Scott at KcmoHomebuyer. You will not regret it. Thank you so much, Scott!!


Lifted an enormous burden.

Selling the house closed a long chapter in my life and lifted an enormous burden. Every week I spent at the house either cleaning, keeping up on maintenance, or keeping up the lawn. This was in addition to taking care of my own home. Now I have more time to spend with my kids watching their sporting events and more time with my mom!



I liked the fact that I wasn’t penalized or felt pressure for not getting everything cleaned out of the house. There was over 40 years and three families’ worth of treasure stored in the house, making me feel that the challenge of cleaning it was going to be impossible. I did what I could and you never hesitated in telling me that it’s ok to leave the rest behind.



This was a great experience. Scott paid us our asking price, and we closed in less than 30 days. It doesn’t get better or easier than this!



Words cannot express how Kim’s hard work has affected my family. After a death in my family, I was left with a home out of state that had been abandoned and no banks would even claim the loan! Kim helped me figure out how to determine ownership, what to do about the taxes, and how to clear up the loan status so the property could be sold. She helped me through the process every step of the way, despite my frazzled mindset after losing a loved one. There is no one better, she’s simply the best!
