Summer is a Great Time to Buy a Home

Summer arrives today with longer days and nicer weather.  It’s a great time to buy a home.  Here are some reasons to hit the dirt and start looking.

Inventory is typically higher at this time of year.  Although there might be more competition, there is also more inventory to find your dream home.  The busy market will also help if you have a home to sell.

Days are brighter later so there is more time after work to look at homes in the daylight with better weather and nicer landscaping.

School is out for the summer.  You’ll have more opportunity to bring the whole family to peruse the house so everyone can agree in a shorter amount of time.

It’s also a great time to make a move and get settled in before the kids start school in the fall, especially if it involves a new school change.

You can also check out the neighborhood and get a feel for the outside potential of the home while the weather is pleasant and the yard is at its best.

maintenance tips

Summer Yard Maintenance Tips

Summer is almost here and the spring real estate market is hot!  Now is a great time for summer maintenance on your yard and lawn to get your house ready for a summer sale!

It’s a great time to start weeding your lawn and flower beds before the weeds become established.  Pulling weeds after a rainstorm may be messy but wet weeds pull out very easily as opposed to a dry hard soil!

Pruning is also important at this time of year. Cut back all the dead branches to give more power to the plant.  It’s also a great time to prune any fruit trees and shrubs.

Cut the grass now before it gets too tall.  Do not cut it too short and take the time to sharpen your mower blades to start the season.  Follow up with a string trimmer to keep everything looking neat and clean.

Add mulch to all your flower beds.  Mulch helps keep the moisture in when it rains or you water.  There are all kinds of different mulches to choose from.

Use an edger on the sides of driveways and sidewalks! It leaves a crisp, clean look.

Fertilize your lawn and flower beds.  They will benefit from the boost after a long, cold winter.  There are many organic products to choose from that are safe for children and pets.

Think about your watering system now.  It’s better to water deeply and less often.

Brighten up your perennial garden with a few new additions or also some colorful annuals.  You can also add hanging baskets, pots and window boxes full of annuals to your house for a burst of color.

Summer Real Estate Market

Summer is fast approaching!  What can you do to be assure a successful real estate summer?

Keep up with technology! Technology is always changing and new apps are always popping up.  Keep up with the newest apps. Be familiar with the latest ways your clients are finding homes and looking on the web and be knowledgeable to help show your worth as their agent.

Also, don’t forget your older clients who are unfamiliar with technology and not comfortable using it. You may have to go old school and actually finalize transactions in person.  Older clients may prefer the personal touch but they are a great source of referrals.

Stay abreast of new builds and maybe find a builder or contractor who is willing to keep you in the loop and vice versa.  Helping clients find a new build they will love can be a win win for both of you.

Don’t forget to keep in touch with past clients.  A simple note or popby can help remind them why they worked with you in the first place.  They may be ready for another move or may know someone who is.

Finally, remember why you got into the real estate business in the first place.  Helping people find a home for their family or sell a house to move on is a huge decision in their life.  Being there to help guide them through the process with the least amount of stress possible is a huge part of being a realtor.  It can be an extremely rewarding experience for all the parties involved.
