Owned by husband and wife team Jon and Stacy Bichelmeyer, Archway Homes buys homes in any condition: pretty houses needing little to no repair, houses needing everything repaired from leaking roofs to bad foundations, cluttered houses, or houses in need of cosmetic updating. And they do it quickly without the often painful and stressful selling process.
Having the ability to sell quickly to an established and reputable company is the perfect solution for those who need to move because of illness, being transferred and can’t wait for a traditional selling process, facing foreclosure or other financial difficulties, an inherited house, or anyone who has a difficult home to sell.
With a new roof, HVAC system and other improvements, 31 years of memories, and a very minimal mortgage payment, Pat Timson had no reason to sell her home. Even when her husband died, she planned to stay put.
She read an article in the Kansas City Star about Archway buying houses. She thought, “Well, I am not interested in selling now,” but threw it in a drawer and kept it. Later she thought, ‘What do I have to lose to give them a call?’”
After talking and visiting with Stacy and Jon, Timson learned more about their buying process and how they make everything so simple. “We have lived in the community for almost 50 years, and I’ve been buying houses, fixing them up and selling to homeowners in the metro area for over 20 years,” said Jon, who is a third-generation real estate investor. “My sellers and buyers know that I’m a local business owner, not a national franchise or out or town investor.”
Archway Homes provides a no-obligation offer within 24 hours, can pay cash and close within three days or on a future date of the seller’s choice, and there are no fees or commissions to pay.”
“Jon was extremely patient with me,” Timson said. “He understood that I was going through some pretty hard times within a month of my husband passing, and he sat and listened to me. I felt no pressure at all to sell my house. No pressure at all.”
Before making a decision, Timson also contacted a real estate agent for a second opinion about listing and selling her home. “But I decided to go through Jon because they pay all closing costs, and there are no inspectors. He went through and inspected the house himself and said everything was fine, so it was much easier, and I didn’t have to worry about making arrangements with other people who would probably have me do some updates.”
According to Stacy, the latter is a common issue many sellers face. “For example, a buyer offers them a price, then brings in an inspector, partner, or appraiser, and the offer gets chipped away through continual renegotiation by the buyer,” Stacy explained. “The seller feels like they have no choice but to continue with that buyer. The same happens with retail buyers who throw in seller paid closing costs, required repairs, and continually delay the closing. That’s not how we operate. Sellers want a smooth transaction, and our experience has given us the ability to remove the hassles for the seller by doing all the work ourselves after the contract is signed.”
Timson reiterated numerous times how grateful she was to Jon for always taking her calls, answering questions, and listening to any concerns. “I know he realized that a lot of these things my husband probably took care of. But he was always very patient, understood that I needed a little guidance, and was happy to give it to me.”
“Our goal is to serve the seller and make the process simple and easy,” Stacy said. “Selling a property can be a stressful process and it is our job to remove the obstacles and complications. With us, selling your house as-is never felt this good!”
