Ready to Sell? Now is the Time….Spring into Action!

When should I talk to a real estate agent about selling?

As soon as you start considering selling! When you begin to consider selling it begins an information gathering process to determine if it is a good time to sell.  Why do I want to move? It could be for more space, less space, new location, newer home or many other reasons.  When do I want to move? It may be based on a job change, school year or other factors.  But typically the biggest questions on whether you choose to move will be – How much will it cost? This involves finding out how much will I make on the sale of this home, how much will I have for the new home and how much are closing costs?  We can help explore and answer all these questions with you to determine if it may be a good time to sell.

Additionally if it looks like the time may be right for a move we can help also explore:

  • Preparing Your Home to Sell: In this seller’s market it is important to only do the items that will pay you back in increased return when you sell. We find many times that sellers want to do too much and spend too much that won’t gain them a return.
  • Staging Your Home to Sell: Advice on how to stage your home for sell including prepacking and furniture arrangement.  Our full service listing also includes having our stager come spend time on final details prior to listing.
  • Pricing Your Home to Sell: As a seller you get to determine the final listing price for your home, but Tina Marr, our Listing Specialist is also a certified Pricing Strategy Advisor and can help you strategically price based on your selling goals.

So when you start thinking about selling, give us a call for a no-obligation consultation.  We would love to sit down and help you decide if it’s the right time to sell now for your family or not.

Time for Spring Cleaning!

Completing larger cleaning tasks that you don’t normally do on a regular weekly or monthly basis is also known as Spring Cleaning! Bring out those brooms and cleaning supplies, time to show our homes some love as we dust off Winter and welcome Spring! Here are a few tips of things to not forget while Spring Cleaning:

  1. Clear as day….wash those windows! Whether you use windex and squeegee/cloth or water hose, give those windows in your home a good clean inside and out. You will be surprised by how many layers of dirt they accumulate over time, especially due to weather. Spray down the screens on the outside of the window as well to give your home that fresh clean and clear look.
  2. While doing that, don’t forget the blinds! It is a great idea to give your blinds a deep clean by cleaning each blade with a dusting cloth and even cleaning rag. If you can’t reach, don’t forget the ladder…..the blinds come up and down pretty easy but what a difference clean blinds will make with that clean window.
  3. Curtains need a good cleaning, too! If you are unable to wash and iron them in your own laundry room, most dry cleaners have options for curtains that will keep them looking nice but give them that fresh look. Many times after being touched or just hanging in a house over time, they collect dust rather quickly.
  4. Call in the carpet cleaner! Deep cleaning your carpets will help keep the carpets looking fresh and new. You can rent a carpet cleaning machine or get quotes from local carpet cleaning companies. Doing this once a year will help maintain your carpets to keep them looking the best they can and lift up any wear and tear.
  5. Have you checked those expiration dates? If not, now is a great time to check that refridgerator for any old food forgotten, giving the shelves and drawers a wipe down. Deep clean the fridge for a great Spring Cleaning task.

These are just a few great Spring Cleaning ideas to add to your list! Flip those ceiling fans in the opposite direction to ensure cool air is flowing throughout your home as you tackle these tasks that will leave you feeling accomplished and ready to take on this new season. Happy Spring Cleaning!

Commercial Growth in Prosper!!

Many of you have noticed the construction happening throughout Prosper and with this comes good news….commercial growth in Prosper is coming our way!

At the northeast corner of Preston Road and U.S. 380 in Prosper, construction is underway on the 1st phase of the $1 billion Gates of Prosper retail-anchored development. This first 93-acre phase will total about 300,000 square feet of retail space when complete. It is confirmed that developers will build a new Super Walmart with upgraded exterior finishes during this first phase, as seen in the picture above which was taken just today! Blue Star Land, who owns this northeast corner,  also owns the other two hard corners of Preston Road and U.S. 380, so we are sure to see more growth in this area.

Prosper is currently the 2nd fastest growing community in North Texas, so with that comes growth not only in residential but also commercial. Prosper residents welcome more retail opportunities closer to home and commercial growth will also help expand the tax base.

If you were waiting to move to Prosper until they had more retail, now is the time. Give us a call at 214-620-0411 to help you with this move. Now is a great time to become a part of a growing area, especially one that still lives as a Small Town, Big Heart.
