Siri, How do I Sell My House Fast in Kansas City?
Short answer: hire Dani Beyer Real Estate. 🙂 In all reality, if you’re wondering, “How do I sell my house fast in Kansas City?,” it’s certainly a possibility, but there are a lot of ways you can go about finding this answer incorrectly. So let us help you avoid some of those pitfalls and point you in the right direction.
You choose to call a number from one of those “We buy houses in cash” door knockers or signs that you see all over the city. Not that those companies aren’t legit, but it’s highly unlikely that you’re going to get top dollar for your home.
Most likely, you also won’t experience a very personable transaction. And potentially, you could be getting swindled. Many times, you’ll get an online “offer,” and then that number changes later in the process – after you’ve already committed your precious time and trust to it.
Now if you don’t value the best offer, a personable transaction or a trustworthy process, then by all means, knock yourself out with one of those sell fast, cash offer situations.
You’ve chosen to go the traditional real estate listing route, but you’re either working with the wrong realtor (here’s tips on choosing the right realtor) or you’re accepting the wrong offer.
If you’re working with the wrong realtor, it’s possible that they’ve either listed your home at the wrong price (too high or too low), and you’re not getting strong offers, OR, you’re getting offers but don’t have the right negotiation tactics to get you the strongest offer that suits your needs.
Stay with us – we’ll touch more on this topic.
If you’re thinking, “I’ve got to sell my house fast in Kansas City,” here’s how working with the right realtor will get you what you need.
List Your Home Correctly
If you and/or your realtor are just running with a Zestimate, you’re not pricing your home correctly. You need a realtor who knows the market both from a comp perspective and a local knowledge perspective. In a low-inventory market, like we’re still in, houses are priced differently than they were even three years ago.
Don’t just go through any home pricing website if you’re curious what you could list your home for. Go through a realtor you can trust. At Dani Beyer Real Estate, we have a free home value estimator tool that utilizes real agents pulling real comps in real time. And our clients’ home sales speak volumes for our accurate pricing skills. In fact, because of the competitive market, on average, our homes are selling for 106% over asking price.
Which brings us to our next point…
Choose the Right Offer
To many people, the right offer is all about the money. But if you’re wanting to sell your home quickly, you may have other factors that mean more to you than just the money. A shyster of a realtor will push you to take top dollar so their commission check is higher. At Dani Beyer Real Estate, our motivation is your happiness on the home sale journey.
If your goal is to sell your home fast, you’ll be wanting to check out cash offers that come without inspections and can close quickly. Or if you’re not receiving any cash offers, consider buyers who are willing to waive an inspection (so avoiding FHA or VA loans because inspections are required with these loans) or are happy to close quickly and have no contingencies. You may also want to consider an offer with a strong appraisal gap so that a potentially low appraisal won’t hold back the sale.
These are just a few examples of how working with the right realtor can keep you from making a big home selling mistake.
