Frequently Asked Questions
First, we will have a conversation about what you can do to prepare your home for sale and the right pricing. After everything is ready, we’ll send out a professional photographer to take photos of your home. Once we get the photos back, we’ll post your home on the MLS and other real estate websites, such as Zillow, Trulia, and others. As offers are received, we’ll let you know and talk about the pros and cons of each offer.
As you prepare to put your home on the market, there are improvements you can make – some small, some big – that will help you appeal to homebuyers and maximize the price you get for your home. And some existing home features can be a major selling point.
According to the National Association of REALTORS® latest profile of homebuyers and sellers, buyers plan to occupy their homes for the next 15 years. They want homes that offer the room, flexibility and comfort they anticipate they will need in the upcoming years. Energy efficient appliances, windows, and systems in the home are important; today’s homebuyer is looking for a sustainable and affordable home with manageable operating costs.
A study by The National Association of Home Builders found that buyers are interested in saving on square footage, but they want a gracious and casual ambiance. Buyers would prefer to maximize square footage with smaller formal rooms and larger family room and kitchen areas.
Other must-have features buyers are looking for include:
- Separate laundry room • Exterior lighting for both curb appeal and safety
- Ceiling fans
- Patio and outdoor living space
- Hardwood floors
- Storage space in the garage
- Eat-in kitchen
- First-floor master bedroom
Additionally, a survey of home builders by Pro Builder showed that excess has given way to practicality for home buyers. They want spaces that are focused on function rather than ‘keeping up appearances’. Open floor plans, flexible spaces, smarter storage, and a focus on multigenerational living are shaping the homes of the future
We have two options for listing a home for sale. Option one is this standard real estate listing. Optio two is a flat-rate option that is significantly less than the standard real estate commission. The services provided are the exact same, except with the flat rate option, you pay our fees upfront when you hire our brokerage instead of paying after closing.
** Please note that these services are currently only available in the greater Kansas city area. Most of our other services are available throughout Kansas and Missouri and we are looking to example our listing services into new markets in the future.
