Adding your house to the real estate market today may prove to be a great decision. In fact, there are many terrific reasons to list your home today, including:

1. You may be able to generate a profit on your house.

If you maintained your home over the years, the residence may have increased in value. Thus, you may be better equipped than other home sellers to generate a profit on your residence.

Furthermore, if you're preparing to enter a seller's market, you may be able to earn a significant profit in no time at all.

A seller's market frequently includes an abundance of homebuyers and a shortage of home sellers. As such, if you add a high-quality house to a seller's market, it may be only a matter of time before you receive multiple offers at or above your initial asking price.

2. You can downsize your home or upgrade to a larger residence.

Although your current residence may have served you well for an extended period of time, now may prove to be a great time for a change. Fortunately, if you add your house to the real estate market, you can take the next step to downsize your residence or upgrade to a larger residence.

For those who want to downgrade, it may be simple to sell a house and get rid of excess items at the same time. Then, you can relocate to a smaller residence that better suits your budget and personal needs.

On the other hand, those who want to move into a bigger and better residence can explore a vast array of residences any time they choose. After a home seller finds a buyer for his or her residence, this individual will have plenty of funds to pursue a superior residence as well.

3. You can embark on a new adventure.

Selling a home opens new doors for any individual, at any time.

For example, you can use the funds from your home sale to go on a cross-country journey. Or, you may choose to move closer to family members and friends in another area of the country. Regardless of which option you choose, you won't have to worry about being saddled to a home mortgage after you sell your residence.

Consider the short- and long-term ramifications of selling your house, along with what you'll do immediately following a home sale. By doing so, you can map out the next stage of your life.

Of course, if you ever have concerns or questions about selling a house, it is always best to consult with a real estate agent. With a housing market professional at your side, you can receive expert insights throughout the home selling journey.

A real estate agent will keep you up to date about offers on your house and offer honest, unbiased home selling recommendations. In addition, he or she is ready to respond to your home selling queries at any time.

Get ready to sell your home Ė meet with a real estate agent, and you can take the next step to add your residence to the real estate market.

We all like a clean home. As many times as we go through our daily and weekly cleaning routines, our homes can still be dirty. Thereís plenty of places in your home that you might be neglecting to clean. These places are germ breeders. Especially to help prevent the spread of cold and flu, itís important to keep these frequently used areas germ-free. The good news is that cleaning often overlooked spots is very simple. Weíll tell you where you need to clean and how with the tips below. 


The Refrigerator Handles


While youíre preparing dinner, itís very likely that you will need to open the fridge door more than once. You may surface clean the outside of the fridge, but often forget the handles that everyone grabs to get in and out of this appliance. You should scrub the handles down on a weekly basis with a mix of hot water and vinegar. 


Your Computer And All The Accessories


You probably spend a lot of time at your desk and at the keyboard of your computer. Think of the times you have spilled things, sneezed on your computer, or just plain sweat while sitting there. Thereís a ton of germs breeding all around your computer and its accessories. Make sure you do more than dust your computer off. Take off the accessories and scrub them every so often. If you have a laptop, turn the unit off and use a damp cloth to wipe it down. 


Toothbrush Holder


While you probably remember to brush your teeth twice a day, you may not remember to clean your toothbrush holder very often. You can easily throw toothbrush holders right in the dishwasher. Also, boil the toothbrushes themselves in water for a few minutes every so often. This is especially important during times of cold and flu to keep viruses from spreading.      


The Faucets


The faucets are perhaps one of the dirtiest places in your entire home. Be sure that youíre cleaning the handles and the faucet itself on a regular basis. You can do this with hot water and dish soap (something thatís already nearby!) For a deeper, disinfecting clean, use a paste of baking soda and vinegar.


Coasters


These great little inventions protect your tables from having the finish damaged by glasses and cups. Without a cleaning once in awhile, they can build up residue and bacteria. Be sure to give them a once over with warm water and soap.  


Some other areas that could use cleaning in your home:


  • Light switches
  • Placemats
  • Cabinet handles
  • TV remotes
  • Coffee makers


While your home looks clean, you want it to be clean. By following these tips and by paying attention to the most used areas of your home, youíll be on your way to a deep clean that avoids breeding germs.
