When is Spring in Real Estate?

By
Real Estate Agent with North Kansas City Real Estate, Reece and Nichols Residential

Spring starts early in real estate!  I'm already working with buyers and sellers that are preparing to buy or sell in spring!

If you are planning on selling your home in the spring, now is a great time to get busy making a to-do list of things you need to accomplish before your home is ready for the market.

I'm sure you've heard the expression you only have one chance to make a great first impression.  That not only applies when you are trying to get a job, but also when you are selling your home.

Curb Appeal = First Impression

If you have your home on the market and someone drives up and their first impression isn't good... unfortunately I've had buyers say, "I'm not going in."  That's not good. 

You don't want them welcomed by chipping paint, leaves from last fall in the yard, un-manicured bushes or screens hanging off the window.  And you certainly don't want it to appear you are growing a crop of maple trees in your gutters!  If this is what welcomes your prospective buyers, their first impression is going to be YUCK!

Get those leaves from last fall bagged up, touch up that trip around the windows, and give those shrubs a little haircut.

Another important point to focus on is your front door.  Spruce it up whether it be with a fresh coat of paint or a shiny new door knob... make it look inviting!

Another good thing to do is wash those windows, inside and out! Sparkly, crystal clear clean windows are important!

We have some days here in Kansas City where the weather is tolerable to be outside in the winter, so sit down and make yourself a Seller's To-Do list of things that will help your home sell quickly

I have real difficulty in getting them to wash windows. I usually have to use a service. Do you do windows?

I have really nice windows that tilt in, so it's easy for my husband and I to do them (yes my husband helps me and ALL my girlfriends already want me to clone him)... So your answer is, YES I do windows.  But if you have difficulty getting into the Windex scene, I'm sure one of the area house cleaning companies would do it for a fee.
