If you plan to add your residence to the housing market soon, now may be a good time to list any unwanted items online. In fact, there are many reasons to sell furniture, decorations or other unwanted items online prior to listing your residence, and these reasons include:

1. You can eliminate clutter from your home.

Excess items may take up lots of space in your residence. As a result, these items may make your home appear small and cluttered.

By listing excess items online, you can give these items a new home. Then, you should have no trouble showing off the true size and beauty of your residence to prospective buyers once you list your house.

2. You can improve your home's overall appearance.

In addition to taking up space in your home, unwanted items may collect dust over time. These items therefore may make your residence look messy and dirty.

On the other hand, selling your unwanted items online gives you an opportunity to transform your home from drab to fab. You can clean items to improve their appearance and showcase them to dozens of prospective buyers online. At the same time, you can clean your residence from top to bottom and ensure your residence is show-ready as soon as you list it.

3. You can earn extra cash.

Selling a home may prove to be costly, particularly for those who need to invest in property repairs or upgrades. Thankfully, listing excess items online allows you to earn extra cash that you can allocate toward the home selling process.

Clearly, there are many reasons to sell items online before you list your house. If you start listing items online today, you may be able to move one step closer to kicking off the property selling journey.

As you get ready to sell your house, you may want to consult with a real estate agent too. If you have a real estate agent at your side, you can receive extensive support from the moment you list your home to the moment you finalize your house sale.

A real estate agent is a home selling expert who will craft a personalized property selling strategy for you. Then, you and your real estate agent can work together to put your plan into action.

Typically, a real estate agent will showcase your residence to potential buyers and keep you up to date with any buyer feedback. If you receive an offer to purchase your home, a real estate agent can provide a recommendation about whether to accept, reject or counter this proposal. And if you approve an offer to purchase, a real estate agent will help you navigate the final stages of the home selling cycle.

When it comes to selling a home and achieving the best possible results, it is crucial to employ a real estate agent. Because if you have a top-notch real estate agent at your disposal, you can boost the likelihood of enjoying a seamless property selling experience.

You've moved into your vintage home with grand plans to update it as you go. Some renovations must wait for your budget to improve. But here are some budget-wise ways to update the family room and move your home in the direction you want by giving your fireplace an update or upgrading your mantel.

Freshen the fireplace

Arguably the focal point of any living space, a complete fireplace renovation may be part of your overall plan, but meanwhile, give it a fresher look with one of these ideas.

  • Add a screen. Fireplace screens come in a plethora of styles, sizes, shapes, and metals. Dress up the room with a lattice-style or painted fan screen.
  • Change out the mantel. If you long for a more rustic look, replace your thinner mantel with a thick, rough-cut plank. Or, pick up a vintage mantel at your local antique store. For a truly updated look, go mantel-free and hang a substantial piece of art above.
  • Paint the brick and surround in contrasting colors. Make certain only to paint with heat-rated preparations near the firebox. Try gray walls, pewter on the brick with black on the surround. Or use various shades of warm taupe with bronze or copper. If the metal surround is removable, itís easier to use spray paint for excellent results.
  • Resurface with tile. A fine herringbone or hexagon mosaic pattern adds interest, or hand-crafted or painted tiles create a distinctive focal point. For a very modern look, consider basket weave or vertical tiles. But, to give your home a historical aspect, consider narrow subway tiles with a subtle glaze.

Turn it into Art

If you donít burn fires your fireplace, consider turning it into a display for your collection of brass candlesticks, a floral arrangement, or a grouping of urns and vases. Prepare the fireplace for non-use: To reduce heat loss, make sure to turn off the gas, then close the damper. Place a section of fiberglass or foam insulation the width and depth of the opening into the flue. Paint a piece of cardboard black and use it to wedge the insulation in place. Clean the firebricks with your favorite household cleaner and a stiff brush so that soot doesnít damage your decorative items.If youíre thinking of removing your fireplace or permanently closing it up, take a moment to check with a local property professional to make certain it doesnít reduce the value of your home.

A confident home seller is a unique individual, and perhaps it is easy to understand why. In fact, this individual likely possesses many traits that are sure to help him or her enjoy a successful home selling experience.

Now, let's take a look at three key attributes of a confident home seller to better understand this individual's approach to the housing market.

1. Proactive

A confident home seller may be more likely than others to go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure the best-possible results. As such, he or she will do what it takes to list a home and promote it to the right groups of buyers, which may result in a fast, seamless home selling journey.

With a proactive approach, any home seller can boost his or her confidence. Taking a proactive approach may even help a home seller maximize his or her home sale earnings too.

Typically, a proactive home seller will allocate time and resources to improve his or her house's interior and exterior. Because if a home stands out from the competition, the probability of a quick and profitable home sale will increase.

A proactive home seller also won't settle for subpar results. Instead, this seller will constantly search for ways to improve his or her home, as well as explore new opportunities to promote his or her house to buyers.

2. Knowledgeable

A confident home seller is willing to learn new things. Thus, he or she may be willing to learn about the housing market to discover innovative ways to speed up the home selling process.

To learn about the housing market, it generally helps to meet with a real estate agent. This housing market expert can teach a home seller about different aspects of the real estate market. And if a home seller has housing market questions, a real estate agent can respond to them immediately.

Furthermore, a real estate agent is happy to help a home seller build his or her confidence. This housing market professional can offer tips and recommendations throughout the home selling journey, ensuring a home seller can make informed decisions as this journey progresses.

3. Patient

A confident home seller understands that no home selling experience is perfect, and various home selling hurdles may arise along the way. Fortunately, this seller also knows how to stay calm, cool and collected under pressure.

As a confident home seller, an individual will stay patient, even when the worst-case home selling scenarios occur. This individual will be able to look at the big picture throughout the home selling journey. Perhaps most important, a confident home seller won't let small problems escalate; conversely, he or she will try to quickly resolve problems and take the necessary steps to prevent them from happening once again.

Becoming a confident home seller is no small feat. But if you understand the key attributes of a confident home seller, you can build your real estate expertise and work toward achieving the optimal results during the home selling journey.
