Selling a house in Wichita Kansas is not as easy as it seems. There are more hurdles that a homeowner faces than I can even describe in this post. What makes selling your house so difficult is that the people that are supposed to help you end up hiding a lot of useful information from you. Most Realtors don’t have the skills necessary to actually sell a house themselves. So what do they end up doing? They end up leaving you with a lot of the work and a lot of the fees.
Harmony Home Buyer is here with 3 tips to help you navigate the complicated process of selling a house in Wichita, KS.
Tip #1 – Get Your House Ready for Sale
We know your house is probably beautiful, and that you may love the way it looks. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s going to attract buyers in the way that you want it to. The fact is that some buyers just have different tastes than you, and it may turn them off of buying the house if they think that they’re going to have to do more remodeling than their budget will allow. So you end up having to become an interior designer and create an environment that buyers walk into where they don’t want to leave. That’s not an easy task for anybody, and we haven’t even talked about the more serious issues like plumbing problems, electricity problems, water damage, mold. So .while just trying to get the presentation right is hard enough, imagine having to do your own plumbing, your own electricity work, and also become a mold expert. It’s not going to happen. But what what will happen is that you will try to close on a deal and these problems will inevitably come up and buyers are going to ask for mold experts and plumbers and they’re going to want all these little things fixed before they close on a deal the whole thing can become a nightmare very quick.
And the real nightmare begins when you start adding up the numbers. Because every little thing you do to your house to get it sold is eating into your total profits. Now you’re not only negotiating with buyers, but you’re also negotiating with contractors who can probably see you’re in a tight situation, and will most likely take advantage of you and up the cost of materials and labor to fix your home – because they know that you HAVE to have it done. So, consider heavily about whether or not you actually want to put the time effort and money into remodeling your own home for traditional sale. Just ask yourself, is it worth it?
Trust us, we’ve seen some great deals go down the drain because a homeowner tried to do their own remodeling. And instead of fixing a problem, they end up either making the problem worse or making three other problems. You don’t want to go down that road if you don’t have to.
Now let us be fair, if you think that you can sell your house and get the most profit out of it by going the traditional way, and doing all the remodeling and staging yourself, then you should. Sometimes that really is your best option.
But many times it’s not and that’s where a professional home buyer comes in.
If you’re selling a house in Wichita, KS that’s not in the condition to sell, and you don’t have the skills to get it up to par yourself, consider coming to a professional home buyer. We’ve never seen a house so bad that we couldn’t that we couldn’t take it off someones hands and fix it ourselves.
Just take a look at how we turned what looked like and abandoned shack into the sleek, modern abode that makes buyers jump to an offer.
We’re professionals and this is what we do and if you want a fast quick simple and easy solution selling with a professional home buyer may be your best shot.
Tip #2 – Sell at the Right Price
How do you know how much your house is worth? Sure, the tax office is going to give you an appraisal and that’s probably close, but they’re appraisals usually aren’t what the house will actually sell for. You could go to Zillow End see what they say but again those are just estimations and it’s really important do you list your house at the right price. Listing your house too high too high can definitely turn off buyers. A buyer may come along thinking they found the perfect home and then realize that there is just isn’t enough room in their budget for that price point; and they may not feel like negotiating either. So, is it a good idea to just list a few thousand under the appraisal price?
NO WAY. Because then you just end up leaving money on the table. This is why it is so important to reach out to a professional who knows how to aggregate all the different appraisal prices and combine their knowledge of the current market to get you the exact dollar amount that will both entice buyers into buying your home in Wichita, Kansas and also earn you the highest profit.
This is easier said than done, and I’m sure your first instinct is to run to a real estate agent. But here’s what you need to expect if you go to a real estate agent. First off, if you’re selling the traditional way. it’s going to take at least a week before you get a quote back from the buyer. And secondly, realtors are going to do whatever they can to get the highest margin for themselves on that sale. that’s just how realtors make a living, so why wouldn’t they? trying to sell at the highest price may end up needing you the most profit in the end, or alternatively, as we’ve seen many many times, you could end up sitting on your house for months and months waiting to for it to sell.
Professional home buyers will typically give you a quote on a house in under 24 hours. If you go to www.HarmonyHomeBuyer.com and fill out our form- expect to get a quote back that afternoon.

Tip #3 – Close on the Right Timeline
When selling a house in Wichita,KS- especially in this record low housing inventory, you need to be efficient and careful when planning the timeline on which you are going to sell your house in Wichita, KS. Here’s an insider tip; you are GOING to sell your house NO MATTER WHAT. The market is just too good for sellers right now. The problem is trying to sell your house in Wichita and be able to quickly move into your new dream home.
If you sell your home too quickly, and your listing agent hasn’t closed the deal before your buying agent, you may be left in between homes. Now, you may think that this is what your real estate agent is going to handle, but in reality most real estate agents are working with many other clients, and are not 100% dedicated to your timeline. If they have a deal closing on the same week with a bigger profit margin for them, your agent may not find the time to get you into your dream home.
This is why in recent years professional home buyers have become so prevalent. Because they offer what traditional homebuyers can’t- they buy houses as-is. And because they buy houses as-is, they skip the long and stressful process of trying to negotiate offers.
