A walk through a thriving sunflower field is the perfect way to mark the end of your summer. Many of our real estate agents make yearly trips to these golden fields all around the Wichita area, enjoying the blossoms and the other activities available at each location. Join them by heading out to one of the spots on the list below. 

  • Grinter's Sunflower Farm - 24154 Stillwell Rd., Lawrence, KS 66044
    With sunflowers as far as the eye can see, Grinter's Sunflower Farm is well worth the drive from Wichita. With the fields planted July 9th this year, sunflowers are expected to be in full bloom in early September. While professional photographs are known to schedule sessions here, the general public is welcome to snap pictures as well.

    Photo seekers are advised to come on a sunny day, about two hours after sunrise or before sunset. You're sure to be rewarded with some amazing pictures.

Hiring a Home Inspector - Buyers - J.P. Weigand & Sons, Inc.

Getting a home inspection is an important part of buying your home, as it lets you know of any potential problems and allows you to back out or renegotiate the contract if the issues are substantial. With so much riding on this step, however, you shouldn't hire just anyone to inspect your home. Here are seven important questions our real estate agents recommend asking your home inspector.

  1. What are your qualifications?
    Kansas does not require any licensing or certification to become a home inspector, so you'll need to do the footwork to ensure your inspector is qualified to do the job. Look for an inspector with certifications from a reputable source, such as the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI).

Closing Day - Sell a Home - J.P. Weigand & Sons, Inc.

When you bought your home, you probably had plenty of resources to tell you what to expect at closing, from first-time homebuyer counselors to agents to internet articles. But now that the shoe is on the other foot, you may have a rough time gathering the information you want about the closing process. Our real estate agents want to address all your questions and concerns. 

  • What is closing?
    The final step in executing a real estate transfer is closing. The process began when you accepted and returned the purchase agreement. Closing is the final deadline to complete the transaction, which was pre-set during the negotiation period. Both buyer and seller will sign the closing documents, and the buyer will take possession of the home. Both parties must comply with all requirements to ensure a smooth transition.
