You may want to check with Bruce Brown of Prime Lending. He is the most knowledgeable, professional and friendly lender I've ever worked with.

5 Things to do Before Putting Your Home on the Market

Have a pre-sale home inspection.
Be proactive by arranging for a pre-sale home inspection. An inspector will be able to give you a good indication of the trouble areas that will stand out to potential buyers, and you’ll be able to make repairs before open houses begin.

Organize and clean.
Pare down clutter and pack up your least-used items, such as large blenders and other kitchen tools, out-of-season clothes, toys, and exercise equipment. Store items off-site or in boxes neatly arranged in the garage or basement. Clean the windows, carpets, walls, lighting fixtures, and baseboards to make the house shine.

Get replacement estimates.
Do you have big-ticket items that are worn our or will need to be replaced soon, such your roof or carpeting? Get estimates on how much it would cost to replace them, even if you don’t plan to do it yourself. The figures will help buyers determine if they can afford the home, and will be handy when negotiations begin.

Find your warranties.
Gather up the warranties, guarantees, and user manuals for the furnace, washer and dryer, dishwasher, and any other items that will remain with the house.

Spruce up the curb appeal.
Pretend you’re a buyer and stand outside of your home. As you approach the front door, what is your impression of the property? Do the lawn and bushes look neatly manicured? Is the address clearly visible? Are pretty flowers or plants framing the entrance? Is the walkway free from cracks and impediments?

North of the River Parks:
Macken Park in North Kansas City is one of the largest parks north of the river; shelters are available to be reserved for parties, tennis courts, and one mile walking trail for a lunch time walks, baseball diamonds and handball courts in addition to playground equipment. The park covers more than 10 acres.
English Landing Park in Parkville offers many of the same amenities as Macken Park and includes a walking trail which is next to the Missouri river. Quant boutique shops are nearby along with good restaurants in this small town by the river.
Penguin Park offers a huge playground and is always a hot spot for children under age 10. Many northlanders grew up going to this play ground and this spot has stayed a main attraction for decades. It is also close to Sherwood Estates an established home community which has maintained its reputation for quality living in the Northland.

When I want to know more about an area, I often go to to see what it tells me about a particular zip code. You might try that web site.

Every Builder is different. I think the first questions are, " Where do you want to live, What type of Property, What Price, Are you Pre-Qualified, how much money can you bring to the transaction without selling your old house, etc?? I have 33 years track record of helping meeting with this situation. Please email me. My website has a great search on the mls....
