Finally ready to move to your next house, but need to sell the one you’re living in now? Maybe you need to move quickly due to a job change or to move out of state to help family. Maybe you’re just ready to stop paying higher taxes and you’re considering leaving the state sooner rather than later. By selling your house on the MLS, you may have to wait around quite a long time to get the right offer and wait for a buyer’s financing to finally close the deal. Waiting for a long selling process can mean you miss out on the next home you need or want to purchase. It could also cost you a lot more money in the long run. If you need to sell your house quickly in order to purchase your next home, and you’re looking for a hassle-free way to sell, you should know you have choices in how you sell your existing house. Selling one house can be stressful enough, but if you must sell quickly in order to line up the purchase of your next house, the number of moving parts in these real estate transactions can be overwhelming and downright impossible to get lined up. What if you could avoid the difficulties that come along with selling AND buying at the same time? We buy houses fast in Chicago, so homeowners can sell quickly and move on to their future. Find out how selling directly to Kendall Partners could be the solution you need.
We Buy Houses Fast in Chicago – We Will Close
Did you know that when a homeowner lists a house, there is no guarantee the house will sell quickly? In fact, there no guarantee the house will sell at all! Most homeowner who hire and agent to list their home or list it ‘for sale by owner’ hope they will have offers very quickly. But the reality is, the longer a house sits on the market, the more likely potential buyers will assume something is wrong with the house and decide to pass by it altogether. When buyers are looking for a house, if they see the house has been on the market for over 30 days, the assumption is there is something wrong with the house. Sellers find that the longer their house sits on the market, the more price drops they will have to make — all the while holding costs continue to accrue and it’s possible that the opportunity to close on the next new house may also slip away.

We Buy Houses Fast in Chicago – Cash For Homes
When you are selling your house using a traditional real estate sales process, your buyer is almost always using financing. This means you are waiting for the time it takes the buyer’s lender to underwrite and approve the loan. Depending on what loan product your buyer is using, this could mean there are additional inspections and repairs required for approval – meaning more time and money for repairs. This also means you may get as close as a few days away from the closing date only to find out your buyer did not qualify for their loan after all. As the seller, you will almost always be left with the short end of that situation, since when you re-list your house the next round of potential buyers will question why the house fell out of contract. Again, the assumption is that there is something wrong with the house itself and the buyers cancelled the deal over it.
Selling your house directly to Kendall Partners – your trusted local cash homebuyer – means your closing will not fall through due to problems with buyer financing.

We simply purchase your house directly from you, closing and taking title to the property, and we buy your house with cash.

We Buy Houses in Chicago – No Repairs Needed
Every house needs work before selling it but did you know that you can spend anywhere from $4,000 – $7,000 to prepare your home for a traditional real estate sale on the MLS? It can cost a lot of money just to clean a house out, stage it, install carpet and paint, have a handyman make some minor repairs, and spruce up the exterior to improve curb appeal. But what if you need some larger projection done? What if you need a new roof, driveway repairs, a new furnace and A/C, or your kitchen and baths haven’t been updated in decades? Most homeowners haven’t had the time to keep up with the wear and tear a house takes. Most homes need wall patch and paint touch ups, or tile and grout repair in the bathrooms. But if you have let these small repairs go undone for too long, they become major projects.
So what if you need to sell and buy a new house at the same time, but your existing house needs some more serious work than you can do on your own? What if it needs a new roof, driveway repairs, a new furnace and A/C, or the kitchen and baths haven’t been updated in decades? A traditional buyer will expect the roof, windows, driveway, and HVAC systems to work whether they are new or old, so when you replace these items they don’t really add much value to your house. However, if they are not functional they will definitely reduce the value of your house to a retail buyer. If you haven’t addressed these large ticket items, then you can expect them to cost you when you go to sell your house to a retail buyer.

We Buy Houses in Chicago – On Your Timeline
Lining up the sale of ONE house is tough enough, but when you have to line up the sale of your house with the purchase of another while the family buying your old house has to also line up the sale of theirs to purchase yours can be especially tricky! With the sequence of transfer of several houses comes a sequence of financing transactions that have to line up. This also means several agents, several buying and selling parties, several attorneys, lenders, and possibly also title companies…. it’s easy to see why selling a house in the traditional way can send your timeline into a tailspin! Not to mention the difficulty of communicating with all the parties involved! All it takes is one party to have a delay to through off the entire selling and buying process. Maybe you aren’t able to come up with a contingency plan that will allow you to live somewhere if the buy and sell transactions don’t happen at the exact same time. This is when you need flexibility – who wants to scramble to find a place for your family to stay while you’re between transactions?

We Care About Our Sellers’ Needs. We’re experienced in property evaluation, and we work with sellers to help them find the right solution for their needs. Now matter why a homeowner must sell, we are compassionate and professional in the way we approach each conversation. We listen to our sellers, why they need to sell, and what goals they want to accomplish through selling us their house. When our sellers are overwhelmed with the circumstances that led up to the need to sell quickly, or just with the condition of the property and complexity of a traditional home sale process, we’re here to listen and guide the seller through to a solution that will help.
Fair, Proven, Transparent, Hassle-Free Process. We use a simple home selling process to make the task of selling easy! Our sellers skip the expense, time, and energy needed to sell a house in the traditional way. When we speak with our sellers, we can conduct a short 15-20 minutes inspection and have them a written offer within 24 hours. We use a simple, one-page contract which clearly states the selling price, the purchase date, and that we pay standard closing fees. No legalese, no fine print. Because we close with cash, there’s no waiting on our financing and no risk of financing falling through. Paperwork can even be completed electronically – we’ve had out-of-state sellers who have completed their entire process without having to be physically present at the house or at closing.
Investors and wholesalers are NOT the same. Kendall Partners is not a wholesaler. Wholesalers will never close on your house. The goal of a wholesaler is to sign a conditional contract with you for your house, then look for a 3rd party who will buy your house for a higher amount. The wholesaler may then ‘assign’ the contract to that 3rd party, who purchases your house and pays the wholesaler a fee. The wholesaler never actually closes on the house, never really buys it from you, and never owns the house at all. Many wholesalers advertise as if they are cash home buyers but they aren’t. This leaves uncertainty for the seller — what happens if the wholesaler can’t find a 3rd party buyer for your house? They could back out of the deal, leaving the seller to have to look for another buyer. Furthermore, what if you could sell directly to their buyer, who is an investor? You may be able to sell your house for more when you sell directly to an investor since the wholesaler’s fee is then avoided altogether!
We Help Sellers Save Money on the Sale of a House. Our sellers save money on the advertising, marketing, and repairs required to sell a house using a real estate agent. Our sellers don’t have the expense of cleaning out a house, making repairs, completing rehab or hiring a contractor to do it for them, keeping up on regular maintenance, staging and photos, giving into inspection repairs or repair credits at a retail buyer’s request, or realtor commissions — all of which will undoubtedly add up to thousands of dollars out of a seller’s profits. Our sellers skip the hassle of constant showings, open houses, and the cleaning that goes along with preparing for those showings and open houses. Lastly, our sellers save on real estate transaction fees at closing as well as holding costs including property taxes, insurance, and utilities which continue to add up as long as the house remains unsold. A burdensome property can cost a lot to own, and it can also cost a lot to sell! The good news is, it doesn’t have to. We buy houses fast in Chicago, we help our sellers save money when they need to sell.
