Are you thinking, “How to sell my property fast in Kansas City?” Then this article is for you!
Selling a property can be a stressful and time-consuming process. In fact, one of the hardest parts of selling a property is the waiting game. Selling property the traditional way by listing with an agent and putting it on the MLS can take 3-6 months!
There are some cheap, easy, and simple ways to increase how quickly the home sells, and for how much.
How to Sell My Property Fast in Kansas City Tip #1: Make it Look Nice
Just like with people, potential buyers home impressions are formed in the first few minutes of seeing the property. That is why it is important to increase the curb appeal. This can be as extensive as painting the house and hiring a landscaping company, or it can be as simple as cleaning up the yard, pulling weeds, and putting down some mulch.
I recommend buying a few bags of mulch in a complementary color (black or brown is best for most homes; choose red for brick homes). Simply spread the mulch around the trees and the front bushes in front of the house. This simple improvement will cost less than $50 but can add thousands to the sales price.
Next, make sure that the inside of the home is neat, tidy and clean. If you don’t have the time to clean the home yourself, consider hiring a cleaning company. In Kansas City, you can get a deep cleaning on the home for around $100. Once the home is cleaned, make an extra effort to ensure that the home stays clean until it is sold.
Finally, you may want to consider “staging” the property. This refers to putting furniture and decorations in the home that highlight the space. This is often done with modern styles and requires a keen eye for design. There are companies that will stage the property for you for showings or just photos.
How to Sell My Property Fast in Kansas City Tip #2: Improve or Upgrade the Property
Making repairs to a property that you are looking to sell can be as cheap or expensive as you would like. It is important to not over-improve the property, however. Take some time to research what kind of repairs will attract buyers, and what kind of repairs will increase the value of the home. Don’t put personal touches or improvements that appeal only to you.
Updating bathrooms and kitchens will always help the property to sell for more and to sell more quickly. Replacing old appliances with newer stainless steel appliances can do the same. To get cheaper appliances, go to your local home improvement store and ask them for any “scratch and dent” appliances. These have cosmetic defects that are many times unnoticeable and they are sold at steep discounts.

How to Sell My Property Fast in Kansas City Tip #3: Remove Personal Items and Polarizing Items
When a buyer walks into the home, you want them to start imagining themselves living in the home. It is best to remove pictures of yourself and your family. Also, remove any holiday decorations or religious items as well.
Lastly, remove any clutter from the home. This helps the home to look fresh, clean and open. It also helps the buyer to begin imaging where they will put all of their stuff!
These tips will help you sell your home quickly and for top dollar. If you would rather just walk away from the property and sell it “as-is”, we can help. You don’t need to do any of the above, and you can even leave all unwanted items in the home. We are happy to take on all of these projects.
We would love to make you a quick, no-obligation cash offer for your home.
