Amp Up Your Curb Appeal

While curb appeal is important all year round, it becomes a focal point in the spring and summer months. An important factor in selling your home is the curb appeal of your exterior. If you're interested in upping your curb appeal, check out the tips provided below, by the best real estate agent in Sunrise Beach, Missouri. To get your exterior ready to list your home for sale at the Lake of the Ozarks, contact us today!

To start your curb appeal efforts, take note of what you would like to improve. Stand at the edge of your property and look at your home, with buyers in mind. What would catch the eye of someone who is looking to buy a home? Many times, potential buyers will drive by a property, before deciding to schedule a showing. Curb appeal is a BIG DEAL - focus on ways to attract buyers into your home.

Keep the Yard Trimmed

It's imperative to the overall look of your home to keep the yard mowed on a regular basis. Along with mowing, ensure all twigs and leaves are picked up. Even though it's spring, there are still a few stray leaves that may remain from the winter months.

Add Some Color

Try to incorporate a pop of color into your curb appeal efforts. This can range anywhere from planting new spring flowers to adding a colorful statement piece, like a bird bath or large vase. Hanging baskets are another way to bring some color to the front porch (and get potential buyers to look up).

Think Exterior Lighting

If the outside of your home lacks lighting, think about adding some solar lights to your walkway. This can help give a clear vision of where buyers should walk, when they make their way to your front door for a showing. A light by the front door can also increase the safety factor, of those entering and exiting your home, after dark - an added bonus for buyers.

Tidy Up Your Space

A clean front yard is important to allow potential buyers to focus on the home, instead of other items on the lawn. If you have kids, ensure their play toys and items are picked up, after they are done playing with them. The last thing you want is your front yard to be cluttered with bikes, soccer balls, and other toys, when a buyer comes to look at your home.

Consider Shutters or Trim Work

If the exterior of your home could use a face lift, consider adding new trim along the edge or shutters to surround the windows. This can completely change the look of a home and give it a fresh, clean look. These items can help to give your home crisp and definite lines, to make it pop.

Make a Clear Path

If there is not a clear path up to your front door, it's time to create one. Whether you want to add a stepping stone side walk or create a walkway with landscape gravel, it's important to show potential buyers the path to the front door - after all, that's where you want them to look and be intrigued what's inside!

Add Prominent House Numbers

House numbers are a BIG DEAL, especially when buyers are looking to see if they have found the right home. If you don't already have a number on your home, it's time to add it. Try to find numbers that will stand out against the home's exterior.

With your new-found knowledge of improving your curb appeal, you're ready to start taking action.

"We enjoyed working with Bill because he is very patient and fun to work with. Most of all he has a lot of knowledge about the lake area and this made us feel safe when making our decisions. Because of this we wouldn't work with anyone else...." 

Jim & Mini Basque ~ Sunrise Beach, MO

"Allyn and I want to thank you and Sky for your very professional efforts to sell our vacation home at the Lake of the Ozarks. We have sold a number of homes over the years and have not had a better experience, even though we expected it would be more difficult to sell a vacation property. Your attention to detail and fast response helped to reduce our level of stress throughout the process. Please let us know if we can recommend you to anyone as we already have to our neighbors!"

- Michael J. Hoke ~ Sunrise Beach, MO

"We met Bill & Sky Johnson quite accidentally last summer as we purchased a boat from one of their friends. That purchase lead almost immediately to a beautiful home in the same area, and they acted as our realtor in the transaction. What professionals! They acted with integrity and ethics in all of their dealings with us, and were 200% customer service oriented. They are reliable, honest and fair in all of their personal and professional dealings....."

–Betsy Donnelly & Greg Pitts

"At all times I felt that Bill Jonhson was always perusing my interests in selecting the right home as well as in my corner in advising, negotiating and closing the deal. At no time did I feel that he was rushing to put me in anything and bring the deal to closure. I met him through a listing he had posted on the internet. He devoted most of three days narrowing potential property selections and driving me over long distances to review view them....." 

–Jim Russell ~ Camdenton, MO

"I had a great experience working with Bill at Eagles Nest Realty on our recent Osage Beach condo purchase. He was readily available with any and all questions and had some great insight in making our purchase go smoothly. It was truly a pleasure to work with him and meet and work with his wife as well. They are great folks and I would recommend them without hesitation."

Home Buying Tips for Spring

Wanting to start your home search? This is a great time of year to begin looking at different homes for sale at the Lake of the Ozarks. While starting your home search is an exciting adventure, there are a few things you should keep in mind. Provided below, by Eagle's Nest Realty, are some home buying tips, for all of the eager searchers out there!

Get Pre-Approved

Pre-approval is helpful in a few different ways. First of all, it gives you - the buyer - a pretty good idea of how much you can afford in a home. This can help to keep your search within your budget. On the other hand, a pre-approval letter shows your real estate agent and home sellers that you are serious about your real estate search & do have the funds to back up your offer.

View All Options

While it is not recommended to view all homes on the market in your area, it is helpful to see all of the options that meet your home requirements and are in your budget. This can help ensure you make the right choice for you and your family, after you see all of your options. Don't limit your search to a certain number, keep looking until you find the righ place!

Keep Search Realistic

It cannot be stressed enough to look IN your price range. There is nothing worse than falling in love with a home, that you simply cannot afford. Try to keep your search realistic, when looking at homes to tour.

Pay Attention To Neighborhood

Driving by a property you are interested in, at different times of the day, can be beneficial. This can help give you a pretty good idea of the regular traffic flow and noise levels. You don't want to fall in love and purchase a home, to later find out the neighborhood is not what you imagined.

Ask About Special Fees

It's important to know about any special fees that will apply to purchasing a home. From a homeowners association fee to neighborhood assessments, inquire about any costs that will be associated with the property.

Clarify Needs & Wants

Distinguish between your wants and needs. This can help your real estate agent more accurately find the right home for you and your family. It can also help you narrow down your search!

Make Sure You LOVE It

Buying a home is a MAJOR decision and it's important that you LOVE the property you are buying. While there may be a few features you want to change and make your own, you will want to be sure you like the home overall!
