Is This a Good Time to Buy a House in Overland Park?
Last Sunday’s open house proved to me that there are plenty of buyers looking for good houses to buy. To have 20+ parties come through a Sunday open house was an all time record for me. It was a cold day, the Chiefs were playing in San Diego and yet there were lots of people that came out to see my house for sale. There were 3 open houses within a block of each other that day and I asked everyone that came through how mine compared to the others. I wanted to know what all of these buyers wanted in a home. This was the overall concensus:
- They liked the floor plan of my home the best
- My house had the best kitchen of the three (yippee)
- Mine was the cleanest – nothing to do here but move in
That affirms what all buyers want in the home they buy:
- A great floor plan
- An awesome kitchen
- Clean and turn-key ready with nothing to do
If you are considering selling anytime in the near future, please let me know. I have many ready, willing and able buyers who would like to buy a house soon – maybe yours.
What I really discovered was that most of the buyers I talked to had no idea what the next step would be once they found the home they wanted to buy.
