🍁Take Pride In Your Home This Fall🍁

With fall officially upon us, now is the time to focus on your curb appeal. Whether you plan to sell your home at the Lake of the Ozarks or simply want to spice up your property, curb appeal can help you achieve just that! As your trusted real estate agents in Sunrise Beach, MO, we've provided some helpful ways to improve your curb appeal this fall. Take a look below to learn more!

Rake the Leaves

While it may be a bit early for too many leaves to be falling, try to keep up with the ones that do. This will help save you from an entire day of lawn cleanup once they all start to fall. A few minutes here and there can save you a TON of time in the long run, when it comes to raking leaves.

Add Fall Flowers

Try to add a touch of color to your fall curb appeal this autumn. A fall flower can do just that! Add a wide assortment of planted or potted mums around your home in order to easily add a pop of color. Spice up your curb appeal with fall-inspired plants and flowers - it will make a big difference in the appearance of your home!

Wash Your Exterior

It's that time of year again! After all the bugs leave marks and mildew starts to grow on your exterior during the summer, it's time to wash it off for a clean start. Take this opportunity to powerwash or hand wash the exterior of your home. Don't forget the windows! Many times bugs are drawn to the light inside your home when it is dark and will leave residue on your windows.

Tame the Lawn

As the temperature drops, it's still important to keep up with your grass maintenance. While it may seem weird to mow the lawn during the cooler months, it's an easy way to improve the appearance of your property. It really shows you care about your home and take pride in your space.

Double Check Your Exterior Lighting

As the sun sets sooner and sooner, it may be time to invest in exterior lights for your space. Ensure your porch or front door light works properly. Also consider adding landscape lighting up your walkway or around your landscape. This can help others see the hard work you put in for your curb appeal AND helps potential buyers find their way to your front door for a showing!

Now that you know some of these easy and inexpensive ways to highlight your property, you're ready to get started! Take it one step at a time and accomplish these outdoor tasks to improve your fall curb appeal. If you are amping up your space to impress future buyers, contact Eagle's Nest Realty today. We'd be pleased to help you list your Lake of the Ozarks home for sale.

Easy Ways to Entice Potential Buyers

The home selling process may seem overwhelming, but it doesn't have to be! Whether you're ready to upgrade to a bigger space or are simply looking for a fresh start, a home sale at the Lake of the Ozarks should be a low-stress situation. Your trusted real estate agents in Sunrise Beach, MO are here to help you through the selling process successfully. Below you can find a few easy ways to entice potential buyers to act on your property!

Offer to Pay Closing Costs

Closing costs are expenses over and above the price of the property in a real estate transaction. They typically include loan origination fees, appraisal fees, title searches, title insurance, surveys, taxes, and deed recording fees. If you are serious about selling your home, you can entice potential buyers by offering to pay all closing costs. This can help alleviate additional costs for buyers as they make a decision as to which home they will purchase. It can help your property rank higher on their list, if they get the added savings of no closing costs.

Include Appliances in the Sale

Appliances can be a large added expense for a home buyer. Often times sellers will include these items in the sale of the home. Leaving appliances with the home not only helps to alleviate the hassle of moving heavy items, it is a great way to entice buyers to choose your property. Many times appliances are bought to fit the home and can be tricky to get into a new space. Refrigerator, stove/oven, dishwasher, trash compactor, and even a washing machine and dryer are all items that can be included in the sale of your home.

Sell Your Home Furnished

If you have no need for your current furniture, you can save yourself a load of moving work and list your home for sale as fully or partially furnished. Especially first time home buyers are interested in this type of home because they likely don't have their own furniture yet. It's a great way to help potential buyers save money and help attract them to your property. In addition to enticing buyers, another perk is you don't have to move the furniture into your new space!

Sell Your Home Fast!

Are you ready to sell your home at the Lake of the Ozarks? Now that you've learned more about some ways to entice buyers to act quickly, you're ready to get started! Contact our team of Lake of the Ozarks real estate agents to list your home for sale. We look forward to helping you complete the sale of your home and help you find the right place for you and your family. Give Eagle's Nest Realty a call at 573-374-0769 today!

What You Need for a Home Loan

Buying a home is a major step in many people's lives. While it is an exciting time and a big accomplishment, it can also be a bit intimidating to enter the real estate market. The first step to buying a home at the Lake of the Ozarks is to get pre-approved for a home loan. This step can help you establish your information with a lender and get a rough estimate of what you can afford in a home. Eagle's Nest Realty has dedicated this week's blog to show you exactly what documentation will be needed to start the home loan approval process.

W-2 & 1099 Forms

W-2 forms are required for all people on the loan for the past two years. This can help to prove your income and helps the lender figure out how much of a home payment you can afford. If you own a business, a profit and loss statement or 1099 form will be needed, as well.

Recent Paycheck Stubs

Your most recent paycheck stubs will need to be presented for your mortgage loan. This helps to show that you do have a steady stream of income and can prove how much money you make, giving your lender a good idea of how much of a payment you will be able to handle.

Most Recent Tax Return Statement

Your lender will need to compare your tax return statement to a transcript from the IRS to ensure there is no fraudulent activity taking place with your income. All pages and schedules of tax returns from anyone on the home loan will be required.

List of Debits & Assets

A debt-to-income ratio will need to be conducted with your debts and assets. This shows what money you have coming in compared to debts that need to be paid off. Anyone on the home loan will need to provide this information for the lender to get a solid idea of what home loan amount you can handle.

Proof of Rent or Mortgage Payments

Your current housing situation will need to be analysed. Whether you rent or own, canceled checks may be requested from your mortgage lender. This helps to show how much you are currently paying, which is a factor in how much you can afford for your new property.

Now that you've seen what documents are required to get approved from a mortgage company, you're ready to start gathering these papers. A pre-approval for a home loan can help you in a number of ways. From getting a jump start on the loan process to knowing exactly how much you can afford in a home, it's the best way to go when buying a house. Once you get a pre-approval letter from your mortgage lender, you're ready to start your home search at the Lake of the Ozarks. Contact our team of expert real estate agents in Sunrise Beach, MO to get searching today!
