The decision to sell your home can be pretty daunting, and once you finally decide to put your home on the market, there are many details to take care of to turn your living space into a showplace. Try to remember what you were looking for when you were a home buyer. What caught your eye…and what turned you off?
Staging a home is more about the presentation of it as far as its overall appearance and design.—not so much the functionality or mechanical aspects like the roof or the plumbing( but those are important too!). In short, you need to look at your home through the eyes of a buyer.
You’ve done all your research. You’ve shopped around. At last, you’ve found your dream home. The only problem: the seller’s price is above your ideal price range. This can be by far the most difficult stage in the home buying process—the negotiation stage. No need to fear, however. This is one area where an experienced agent can help you get the best deal.
If you think moving to a new home is stressful for you, try looking at it from the point of view of your pet. They see you packing boxes and suitcases and immediately they know something is getting ready to happen. Since they can’t ask you what’s going on, it’s your job to make them feel at ease throughout the process.
Whether you’re ready to buy your very first home or are just looking for a change, there are a few things home buyers should look for, as well as some red flags that could keep you from making the wrong choice.

There’s something about the end of one year and the beginning of another that causes many home owners to want to unload and re-organize their space. Maybe you’re getting ready to sell, or you may have just moved into your dream home. Either way, the New Year is a good time to take a look at what you have and decide what needs to go.
The holidays are the best time of year! Remember a few safety tips and enjoy family and friends.
Fireplaces can really make your home warm and welcoming for guests, so get them ready for the season. They should be cleaned every year, preferably before you build your first fire. Keep the flue open while burning, and dispose of ashes in a metal container once they’ve cooled down.
Contrary to popular belief, selling your home during the holiday season isn’t necessarily a negative thing. You can make the busy-ness and festive nature of this time of year work to your advantage to showcase the best features of your home.
With all the activity crammed into the end of the year, many sellers will decide to postpone putting their homes on the market until mid-January or early spring. This could be the best time for you to dive in knowing there’s less competition. Add to that this fact: people shopping for a new home during the holiday season are usually serious shoppers.
