I would look for a local fence contractor online. I tried putting one in by myself last summer and just about tied! it was way more work than I thought. I ended up hiring a contractor to finish it up for me because it was so much work! http://www.heartlandfencesystems.com/vinyl_privacy_styles.php... more
Every buyer has a different opinion, and it is difficult to say if you would recover the cost. Personally, I love granite countertops, and I would pay extra for them. I don't think this is an uncommon point-of-view either. They are more durable, easy to clean, aesthetically appealing than other materials. If it was me, I would go ahead and get the granite countertops.

I think that you could do a Google search to see what pawn shops are in Chanute. I think that you should also speak with family and friends to see who they would refer. Pawn shops can be a great place to find a large variety of different products. You can also loan money from a pawn shop, but it is at pretty steep interest rates.
You can ask for up to 9% of the purchase price of the home in most instances. Depending on the price of the home, as well as area specific closing costs, that may or may not be enough to cover all of your closing costs. And keep in mind that many sellers are unwilling to contribute that much. Your offer would need to be a strong one, or they would need to be extremely motivated. Good luck!... more

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local authorities with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
I would shop around for the best looking windows that are at least double pane. Brand doesnt matter much when they are new to a buyer. Just shop around and get the best deal you can. Consider only replacing the main windows that make the most sense for resale value. for example, small basement windows may not be worth it. either way they will help your home sell.... more
I'm personally of the opinion that the more lax you can be, the better. No one wants to be remembered as the landlord who kicks people out before they have a place to sleep. In a college town especially, those few weeks when contracts expire and new ones are made can be hard on the students. I try to be as lax as possible, within reason.
If you haven't had any lookers, the house is over-priced. If not priced correctly at first, the house will linger on the market. Buyers might perceive something is wrong with it.
Are you working with an experienced agent? If so, have her redo a market analysis. The market never remains static--it fluctuates over time. If not working with an agent, by all means, hire a good one who will do a market analysis & price your home to sell.... more
Hi Kim! I run a local rental guide in Lawrence called The Housing Hawk to help renters find apartments and houses in town. You can search the active listings on our website, or you can call/email me and tell me more about what you're looking for so I can send over a list of properties that meet your criteria. If we don't have anything listed on our website that works for you, I can also get in touch with the landlords and property managers who work with us to see if they have any properties that are coming available soon. Also worth mentioning - the service is free for renters.... more
