Category: selling a home (18)

HouseGraph130The Kansas City real estate market continues to show signs of recovery, and with low interest rates still available, I’m finding myself super busy with buyers. In fact, two buyers I’m working with put homes under contract just this week!

In statistics released last week, the National Association of Realtors reported existing-home sales near a 5-year high, with the housing market flirting with pre-bust growth. So, if you’re going to buy a home in the near future, you might want to consider doing so while you can still take advantage of the great rates!

And, if you’re planning to sell your home soon, take into account the low inventory currently available in the Kansas City area and think about moving your timeline up a bit to get on the market before it gets congested with competition.

If you want to learn more, or talk through a plan to meet your real estate goals, give me a call anytime at (913) 980-2434.

The real estate market in Kansas City has picked up pace, and with spring around the corner, we’ll soon be in what is traditionally one of the busiest seasons for buying and selling. If you’re shopping for a home in the Fairway area, add this 2-bedroom home to your list. And if you’re free on Sunday (Jan. 20), swing by! We’re hosting an open house at 5860 Granada Lane from 1 to 3 p.m. (Reece & Nichol’s website is currently down for maintenance, but you can view more details with MLS#1809738 on my mobile app)

When it comes to selling a home, first impressions really count. And with the market growing more competitive, it’s important to have your home in the best condition possible. For people planning to list this spring, I’d recommend you get started now. March will be here before you know it! Take a few minutes this week and walk through your home and make a list of projects that need attention. By making your list now, you can tackle a couple of projects each week, as your schedule allows, and spread out the budget for home improvements a bit. Check out this checklist from TLC of 10 things to do before you list to help you get started.

Luckily, we’re having a fairly mild winter. Take advantage when we have nicer days to get out and tidy up your yard and make exterior touch-ups. If you’ve lived in this area for any time at all, you know that there’s no telling what the weather will bring this spring, so if you can work ahead outdoors on nice winter days, go for it! Here’s a good list from MSN of 10 repairs to make before selling.

Paying attention to details like these can set your home apart from the competition and help you gain the most from your investment. If you would like help deciding where to put your focus before you go on the market, I’m happy to help. You can reach me any time at (913) 980-2434.
