"A Dozen (or so) Quick Fixes & Short-cuts for Preparing a Home For Sale"     Crusty stove burner plates. FIX: Replacements are cheap and look good for showings; keep the old crusty ones to switch out before cooking!   Worn out or dated cabinet pulls. FIX: If replacing the cabinet pulls in the kitchen but not in a secondary bathroom, re-use the less-worn old kitchen pulls in the bathroom!   Dingy bathroom floor tile grout. FIX: Use a scrub brush and Comet—it’ll look as close as it can to new again!   Scratched or worn wood trim and cabinetry. FIX: Forget the temporary fix of Old English Scratch Cover.

Earlier this month, a Zillow user in the Lees Summit Missouri area asked how adding a 4th bedroom would affect the value of his home. Question: We have a finished basement with full bath and full kitchen and own entry. Our house sits on 10 acres and is 3300 square feet. We can add  a fourth bedroom with egress doing the work ourselves for about $3000 and use a space that is unused. Will this add value? Team Gipple Response: Value can be expressed a couple different ways- A sheer increase in property value as reflected on an appraisal OR increased value in terms of the marketability of your home should you sell it.  Of course, an appraisal is very statistic-driven, looking at such features of a home as neighborhood sales data, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, finished square footage, et...

Recently, a Zillow user in the Lees Summit MO area asked what steps are needed to get a home ready to sell. Question: I need advice from a seller agent about getting my house ready to sell. Team Gipple Response: In today's real estate market we have two choices- appeal to buyers who are out for a "deal" (competing with distressed sales, such as short sales and foreclosures) or appeal to buyers who want a reasonably priced move-in ready home that has been well maintained.  Buyers looking for a deal will be motivated by nothing other than the price of the house.  Buyers that are in the market for a move-in ready home have very high expectations and usually several homes to choose from, so it's critical you partner with your agent to get the home in top condition and focus your marketing e...

A Zillow user, preparing to sell her home, recently inquired about finding the value of their real estate in the Lee's Summit, MO area. Question: We would like to know what our house is worth in this present market.  I'd like to get that online if possible.  Please advise.   Team Gipple Response:   You have several options: There are many online real estate sites that can give you an estimate of value.  I've found these sites, much like tax assessments, are based on a few data points such as sq footage, number of bedrooms, neighborhood sales data.  In the matter of my own home, I found the estimates to be extremely low. You could hire a local real estate appraiser.  They will establish market value of your home based on a very complete comparison of your home vs. similar homes that have...
