Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last few months, you probably know that now is a great time to sell your home in Overland Park. Why?
- There is limited inventory especially in houses under $450,000
- It’s summer and a perfect time to relocate before school starts
- Houses are bringing tens of thousands of dollars over market value
- It just makes good sense if you are anticipating a move in the near future
I’ve been talking to my clients who have been in their homes for a number of years to see if now would be a great time for them to sell. I have found that most people aren’t motivated by the thought of selling their home for $30,000-$50,000 over what it’s worth.
On the other hand, I have other clients who can’t wait to sell their home in Overland Park for an overinflated price. It’s like winning the lottery. They know full well, that this market isn’t going to last forever. And they are stepping up to get in on the free money while it lasts.
To Sell Your Home in Overland Park, Do You Need to Prepare It?
This is a tricky question that everyone has their own opinion about. I will answer the question as a Home Stager. The better your house looks and the more emotional buyers become over your house, the more money you will get. That will never change. And that’s exactly why I started Overland Park Home Staging back in 2006. Buying a home is an emotional experience and people will always be able to justify what they just did when they know they overpaid for your house.
Once they see themselves living in your house, shopping in your neighborhood, and their kids attending that elementary school that’s within walking distance from the house, they are hooked. Money doesn’t matter anymore.
Problems with the Real Estate Market
The biggest problem with the Overland Park real estate market is choosing the right offer. Which offer is going to stay together and end up actually closing? There are so many variables that go into the winning offer. It’s not just about the price. Here are other things to consider:
- Are the buyers fully approved or just prequalified?
- Does their lender have a good track record of closing transactions and on time?
- Is the buyer’s agent knowledgeable, available and a good problem solver?
- What happens if your house doesn’t appraise?
