Protecting Your Home From Water Damage

Image
July 29th is Rain Day - and if you've looked at the forecast, right now they're predicting a week's worth of potential thunderstorms. While your home may not be at risk of water damage from the rain (though, it's completely possible), sometimes your home needs protection from issues within. Water damage is a very real issue and one that no homeowner wants to deal with, so here are a few things to keep in mind as you protect your home.

Check the Roof One of the biggest issues a homeowner can run into is roof issues. Whether it has major issues or just small leaks - both can cause severe water damage in your home. Whether you're buying a new home in Colorado Springs, or you are maintaining your current home - it's always a good idea to have your roof inspected. Especially if you suspect that there may already be some issues. Inspecting and repairing your roof can also be a great investment that you can reap the rewards of when you sell a Colorado Springs home.

Why Isn't My Home Selling?

Image
This is a common question among people who are trying to sell a home. Right now, we are in a seller's market, so we really don't have enough homes on the market for the buyers. However, if you home is still on the market - there's probably a really clear reason why. The MacGuire Team knows how stressful it can be to sell your home, not to mention the process of having to find another at the same time. Here are a few reasons you can use to evaluate why your home may not be selling as quickly as you hoped and how we can help you make some adjustments.

The Price. This can be one of the hardest parts of selling a Colorado Springs home. Setting the price correctly can make or break your chances of selling quickly. While today's buyers may not be educated about the exact value of your home, you are competing with websites like Zillow and Trulia that will tell a buyer what home's in the area are worth - and that sets the standard. That doesn't mean they are correct, bu…
