Now that the long, long winter is finally coming to an end, it is time to start thinking about spring. When I think of spring I think of home buying/selling season. In Johnson County Kansas the spring home selling season is the most important. With so many young children in school many home buyers & sellers don't want to move while the kids are in school or want to move before the start of the next school year.
If you have been considering selling your Johnson County Kansas home, you might want to start getting your ducks in a row. Long gone are the days of just putting a sign in the yard and calling your home for sale.
Buyer's are pickier than ever and with all of the choices available to them, why shouldn't they be. Seller's would be wise to start interviewing realtor's early and too use their advise to get their home in tip top selling shape.
Today's buyers will consider everything about your house. Some things to pay careful attention to are:
- Carpeting- Does it need to be cleaned or replaced?
- Roof- Shake roofs last on average 15 years- How old is yours?
- Furnace & A/C- when was the last time it was serviced?
- Wallpaper- nothing turns buyers off more than outdated wallpaper
- Paint- Nothing picks up a room like a fresh coat of paint
- Stuff- Do you have too much in your house? Clean up, clean out
If you are going to sell this spring, a few extra weeks of preperation will make a big difference. That difference might mean thousands of dollars to your bottom line and that what it is all about. Need Help? That 's what we are here for.
