Real Estate and the Goldilocks Effect

What does real estate and the Goldilocks Effect have in common when selling your home in Overland Park? I always say, selling your home is simple – it’s just not easy. Everything has to be “just right.”

Another Happy Seller

As my Happy Seller, Gayle Krieger said,”selling your home is a mindset.”

“We were looking for a Realtor that had experience and also did home staging. Our daughter found Melinda on the internet. I contacted Melinda initially to visit with us and look at our house to see what improvements to do for selling our home.

From our first visit we knew Melinda was the Realtor for us. She gave us some recommendations of improvements to do. The first thing was to get a mindset that we are selling a house not our home. When we were ready to list we called Melinda. She staged our home and told us she would sell it the first weekend. My husband was not a believer in being able to accomplish that. We sold for asking price the first weekend! He is now a believer!”

Melinda was very prompt in answering emails, texts and phone calls. We were moving out of state. Melinda called Realtors in our new location and interviewed them. She found us a great Realtor to buy our next home. We really appreciated that. We highly recommend Melinda.”

Is Your House for Sale Just Right?

Gayle and Jerry’s house had the Goldilocks effect. When their house came on the market, everything was “just right.” While I didn’t have to do much, I brought in some accessories to freshen up their look by staging and styling their home so it would appeal to the largest number of buyers. I stopped by the garden center on the way to their house and picked out a perfect arrangement that was “just right” to dress up their front porch.

Real Estate and the Goldilocks Effect

People always tell me I’m very stylish. My reply is, “if I can’t style myself, how can I style your home?” It’s all in the presentation – arranging and accessorizing your home until it’s “just right.” By focusing on your home, getting it “just right” and having a marketing plan that works, I’m able to sell my homes within 3 days of coming on the market. That creates very Happy Sellers!

While I know I can’t help everyone, the sellers I have helped have had great success. It starts with their mindset and my ability to create their Goldilocks Effect – making sure everything is “just right.” Remember, you have one chance to make a first impression when selling your home in Overland Park. Is your house “just right?”

How to Sell Your Home in Overland Park

There is always a lot of discussion around how to sell your home in Overland Park. Several years ago, Fortune Magazine, published an article about the only 3 things that mattered when selling your home.

Only 3 things? There are so many things to consider when selling your home. But at the end of the day, they all fit into 3 categories and the only 3 things that matter are:

1. The list price

2. The way your home looks

3. The Realtor you choose

These are the only 3 things that matter when it comes down to how to sell your home in Overland Park. Everything else is in the details.

Pricing Your Home to Sell

The list price – above all else, you’ve got to price your home correctly. I don’t care whether it’s a seller’s market, buyer’s market or balanced market. The right price is going to get buyers into your home and get it sold if you follow the next 2 steps.

Staging Your Home to Attract the Most Buyers

The way your home looks is huge. Your home for sale has to look amazing. After all, selling your home starts with proper preparation and ends with a fabulous presentation of the finished result. Great home staging in my book often raises the price by a good $5,000 -$10,000. But don’t expect more money if your home doesn’t look fabulous. A great looking house gets buyers more emotional, makes them fall in love and willingly pay you more money for it. That’s when you can negotiate your price way up!

The way you live in your home and the way you sell your house are two very different ways. Having your house on the market is not the time to slack off. You must be on your very best game 24/7 before and during all showings. Buyers are looking for the Goldilocks Effect in the house they are going to buy. Don’t be the reason they won’t be generous with their offer – if they make one. The right look will always get you the right offer.

Choosing the Right Realtor

Your Realtor controls the entire process of how to sell your home in Overland Park. They are the most important person in the equation. It’s their decision what happens and when. From the right price to the right look, your Realtor is running the show. Be sure to ask lots of questions. Choose someone who is getting the results you want. Don’t choose them because they have the biggest team of agents. It only takes one agent to sell your home…the one who is paying attention and making it happen. Your results will be determined by the Realtor you choose. Choose carefully! Your Realtor will make you thousands or cost you thousands. You decide.

How to Sell Your Home in Overland Park
