Selling Your Home in Overland Park – List it Today…Sell it Tomorrow?
It seems to be a pattern for me – list your Overland Park home today and I’ll sell it tomorrow. I think I’m onto something good for everyone. Whether you have a house to sell in Overland Park, Lenexa, Olathe or elsewhere, the Kansas City Metro housing market is hopping.
57% of homes in Johnson County are selling in 60 days or less. While that’s good, being on the market for 60 days could be excruciating for some sellers. For example, my new listing in Lenexa, 14509 W. 83rd Place that came on the market Friday morning had a full day of showings on Friday and the weather was horrible – rainy, cold and wet. Let me tell you, there’s nothing worse than showing houses in the rain. Then on Saturday, it started all over again. The weather was perfect and I knew in my soul, the house would sell on Saturday. Every time the sellers started to come back home, they had another call that the house was going to be shown. We had about 8 showings on Saturday and one of the showings early Saturday morning actually made the offer. I went and met with the sellers on Saturday evening and asked them how they were – she told me that they were exhausted. After 2 days, they were ready for the home selling process to be over. I told them I could accommodate them because I had an offer in hand that I thought they would like. After sharing some wine and talking about their home selling experience, it was done and I put up the SOLD FAST sign since I had an advertised open house on Sunday. They were thrilled it was over so quickly. But selling the house is only the first step to get to closing. I always say selling the house is the easy part, getting to closing is where all the challenges come in to play. On Wednesday the buyers are doing their home inspections. That’s like someone cutting your heart out. Check out tomorrow’s blog post for the real dirt on home inspections and 4 things you need to know.
