Selling a Home in the Kansas City area

When it comes time to sell your house, I know you want the process to be as smooth as possible. As a Reece & Nichols agent, I know how to market your home in the Kansas City area, and nationally, for a faster sale – at the best possible price! Follow these guidelines when you are considering listing your home:

Find Your Home’s Value. I will provide you with a detailed report that tells you what homes in your area are selling for. This will help in determining the best price for your home in the current market.

2) Prepare Your Home. There are usually simple things that you can repair or clean that will maximize your home’s exterior curb appeal and interior charm. I can help you focus your effort on the things that will help your home sell faster.

3) Marketing! Together we will create a marketing plan to get the maximum exposure for your home in the Kansas City real estate market, plus strong national and global exposure through our relationships with HomeServices of America, Leading Real Estate Companies of the World and Relo National Home Search. I will explain to you the marketing methods being used, and guide you through the process of buyer showings for your home.

4) Accepting an Offer. Together we will consider – and negotiate – purchase offers on your home. Once you accept an offer, we will work with the buyer’s agent to schedule a closing date and time.

5) Completing the Sale. I will guide you through the completion of the sales transaction - from an offer, to the contract, to a smooth closing. I will provide all necessary documents and paperwork, and make sure all negotiations are handled smoothly with the buyer’s agent.

6) Time to Move! Start packing and begin your move. Notify your phone and utility companies, post office, newspaper and magazine subscriptions, friends and family of your move. If you are moving out the Kansas City area, the Reece & Nichols Relocation team and I can help make your transition to a new area as easy as possible, including referring you to a reputable sales associate in your new area.
