Does 2016 New Years' Resolution = New Home?

Does your 2016 New Years' Resolutions include a new home?  

It's hard to believe we are half way through January already.  How are you coming on those New Year Resolutions? Making resolutions is easy - keeping them is the hard part.

Your New Home

The best way to keep a resolution is to make a plan. If one of your resolutions for 2016 is a new home = we need to talk NOW! With the extremely fast pace of the Kansas City real estate market, a proper plan is extremely important in the overall success of your resolution. And the market in Lee's Summit is different than the market in Overland Park, KS - or even Kansas City. Obviously, a plan for a buyer will be completely different than a plan for a seller.

Market statistics for December 2015 in the Kansas City area show a 27% decrease in inventory (homes available for sale) as compared to 2014. In Lee's Summit as in the entire metro, we are officially in a Seller's Market.

I start working with Sellers long before they are really ready to sell. I give them insight into what today's Lee's Summit buyer is looking for. We discuss which improvement will net the best return, and what simple changes can mean the difference between 5 showings and 50.

Buyers and sellers often want to wait until they have a deadline approaching.  My lease is up March 1st. I will get my tax refund on February 15th.  I want to keep my children in the same school until the end of the school year.

What most people do not realize is that there is a timeline involved in real estate as well.  How long will it take to sell that house - and to find a new one? How much time will it take from the date we go under contract until the day of close?  Did  you know that is 45-60 days??  Again, all reasons to call me NOW to start that plan.

Sending you wishes for a fantastic 2016.  And until we talk again... may every day be a blessing!
