Who wants to get out and look at homes in the rain? You do.
In the Kansas City Metro, May is a great time to check out potential homes for so many reasons….
1. More people are starting to list their homes for the summer sales so the selection/inventory is much better
2. You’ve got more light in the evening after work to schedule showings.
3. It rains ALOT. A Kansas City May is the stress test of gutters, downspouts and waterproofed basements.
Stop by a home the day after one of these monsoons and walk right down into that basement. See how it held up after the rain. If you can’t see the moisture/water, do you smell it? Wet basements have that dank smell so follow your nose.
If you can’t make it over after a big rain, don’t worry. The seller’s disclosure has very specific questions regarding water so pay attention to that section.
As always, if there is anything I can do to help, feel free to reach out.
