Real Estate is the largest instrument of wealth in the world. As such, it has the power to transform the economic condition of individuals, families, businesses, communities, and countries, for better or for worse.
It should come as no surprise then, that buying and selling real estate are the most important investment decisions you will ever make. Like any decision, there are numerous variables that need to be addressed, researched, and taken into consideration before taking further action. That is why it is imperative that you always have access to clear, reliable, and up-to-date information from sources you can depend upon and trust.
An experienced real estate professional can provide you with these necessary resources and help guide you in making a decision that is right for you. Finding a qualified, knowledgeable agent that is committed to your satisfaction is an integral first step in the buying/selling process. I encourage all prospective clients to do a thorough investigation of potential agents before making any verbal agreements or signing any written contracts. Feel free to check my references page for a comprehensive list of certifications, reputable associates, and an increasing number of satisfied clients.
A devoted real estate professional will make every effort to ensure their client's experience is as smooth and painless as possible. So, whether you are seriously interested in getting into the real estate market, or simply just looking, I have included some informative and easy-to-use resources to help get you started:
My property information search feature allows you to gather additional information about one or more properties. Take a look around and see what is out there. You can use this tool to get a 360 degree street view of the home, compare home values of similar properties in the area, and even view a property value history report.
Do you have children or are you planning for some in the near future? Don't forget to research their educational possibilities. With my local school info feature, you have instant access to current information regarding local public, private, and charter schools.
Interested in a property but unsure whether or not you can afford it? No problem. I have included four common real estate calculators for you to effortlessly calculate different scenarios without ever having to call a lender.
These are just a few examples of the effortless, time-saving ways I propose we do business. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns about current listings, financing options, the market in general, or any other way I may be of service to you. I look forward to working with you and fulfilling all of your real estate needs.
Selling Your Home! Why Hire a REALTOR®; Studies show that home sellers who use a REALTOR® to represent them generally get a better price than those who sell the home themselves. REALTORS® are up-to-date on critical processes and can help keep you out of trouble. They can also help you get your home sold at the best price in the right time frame. Equally as important, REALTORS® add objectivity to an inherently emotional transaction: the sale of your home. Before Your Home Is Listed It's important to have your home in good showing condition before buyers start going through it. Here are some steps to take:
Touch up interior and exterior paint as needed.
Install new carpeting and flooring if it appears worn or dated.
Make sure the front is clean and spruced up - curb appeal will create a favorable first impression.
Trim bushes and plants as needed, and make sure the lawn is kept mowed and trimmed.
In autumn, rake the leaves; in winter, keep the snow shoveled.
Keep the interior clean, de cluttered and odor-free. Eliminate evidence of pets.
Curb Side Appeal see your home for the first time.
The Nose Knows eliminate any source of unpleasant order.
Minimize personal items such as family photos. You want buyers to see themselves living in the home.
Consider putting excess furniture and belongings in storage.
Now's the time to clean out the garage and basement and sell, give away or throw away items you don't need anymore.
Consider having a pre-listing inspection performed. Buyers will be hiring professional inspectors; here's your chance to address problems in advance.
Consider engaging a professional stager to give your home the right emotional appeal.
During the Listing Period of Your Overland Park Home When potential buyers visit your home, either be absent or make yourself as inconspicuous as possible.
Have fresh flowers in the entryway. It makes for a friendly introduction into your home.
If offers are made that don't match your hoped-for price, don't reject them offhand.
Pay attention to your agent's advice.
Consider dropping the price if several months go by with few or no offers, but if you and your agent have priced your home properly from the start, this shouldn't be necessary.
Don't get discouraged.
In buyer's markets, homes take longer to sell than during boom times.
Knowledge and experience are the keys to successfully financing in your Overland Park real estate transactions. Working as your agent, I can provide you with an enormous amount of valuable information. Such data, combined with my expertise, experience and training, can be an essential key to your success. One of the keys to making Your Overland Park home buying process easier and more understandable is planning. In doing so, you'll be able to anticipate requests from lenders, lawyers and a host of other professionals. Furthermore, planning will help you discover valuable shortcuts in the home buying process. 12 Steps to Financing Your New Overland Park Home
1. Find a lender. Ask friends, family or co-workers for referrals; speak with local real estate agents; search the Internet.
2. Fill out a loan application.
3. Get an estimate of closing costs from the lender you choose. By law, the lender is required to provide this statement to you within three days of receiving the loan application. Make sure to ask what type of loan program your lender has selected for you, including the rates, terms and any special information, such as prepayment penalties.
4. Compare costs, fees and terms of loans if you are working with more than one lender.
5. Negotiate fees. Sometimes you can negotiate the amount of fees or loan points (a point is 1 percent of the loan amount) the lender charges you.
6. Consider lowering your interest rate by paying more points. The relationship of interest rate to points paid is an inverse one; the more points you pay, the lower the interest rate.
7. Provide required documentation.
8. Pay any up-front fees. Sometimes the lender requires that the appraisal or processing fee be paid at the beginning.
9. Review loan papers. Approximately one week prior to closing, loan papers will be ready for your review. Make sure the loan matches the original quote you were given.
10. Sign your loan papers and your down payment funds into your account four to six days prior to closing of your Overland Park Home.
11. Bring a cashier's check for the down payment to the Title Company, Escrow Company or attorney handling the closing. The lender will send the title company a check for the loan amount.
12. Get ready to congratulate yourself! Once the transaction closes and you have signed off on all contingencies, you will receive a copy of the deed and a set of keys, and you then own your Overland Park home.
