We’re already taking listing appointments for spring. You read that right! The demand for inventory across the Kansas City market provides a great opportunity for people thinking about moving. Many of our clients have experienced the benefit of a sellers’ market throughout 2017 where homes are selling quickly and at good prices. And, quite of few of these sellers received multiple offers and/or sold over list price! With similar market conditions expected in 2018, we’re already taking calls and making appointments with clients who want to get a jump on the spring market.
Typically by this time in November, we’re seeing market activity taper off. But signs of holiday decline aren’t showing as early this year. In fact, homes are still coming on the market, even with Thanksgiving just two weeks away! This in and of itself is an indicator of the need for more listings. The buyer demand is there and it’s strong. Winter is a smart time to take advantage of time indoors to get your home ready to be ahead of spring competition!
Prepare Your Home to Sell Now and Be First to Market!
Our listing appointments generally take about an hour, and there is no prep work required on your part. There is also no commitment required from you. We will bring recent market data from your surrounding area to discuss pricing nearby to so you can determine if a move in 2018 makes good financial sense for you. We will also ask for a tour of your home so you can share any special features or updates you have made to the property. This is important for two reasons. One, it helps us determine where you home ranks in value compared to your neighbors for strategic pricing. Two, it lays the foundation for a pre-listing checklist of items that need to be addressed before your home is staged and photographed to market.
We have a solid grasp on what area buyers are looking for and can use that insight to ensure your home is in top condition to list. You never get a second chance to make a first impression, and it’s our job to make sure that impression is the very best it can be!
If you have a particular agent on our team you’d like to invite to your home for a listing appointment, you can find individual contact information here. Otherwise, you can reach us anytime at 913.402.2599 or [email protected] and we’ll assign your appointment to an agent who is very familiar with your neighborhood and surrounding area. We are excited for what’s to come in 2018!
