Life isn't always the way we plan it and while you are happily living in your Geist Waterfront home, something could happen where you need to sell it quickly. We are entering that time of the year where homes for sale in Geist may be sitting a little bit longer. There typically are not as many buyers as in the Spring, but the good news is almost all of them are serious buyers!
So if you are not currently thinking about selling, here are a few tips to do "just in case".
- Take pictures of your backyard and front yard now with the beautiful Fall colors as a backdrop against the water. Finding out that you have to sell in January makes getting an appealing picture to put on the internet challenging.
- Do maintenance on your home now. For example, November is a great month to think about getting your ducts cleaned or checking for cracks and gaps by your windows or doors. If you have a lot of landscaping, this is the time to split your hostas too.
- Make a list today of the things that need to be done in your home such as painting, replacing carpeting, etc. Making a list now is going to be far more thoughtful and complete than trying to do that when the stress of moving hits.
