Buying a Home: Why You Need a Real Estate Attorney

When I bought my first home, I basically signed whatever was placed in front of me. The idea of becoming a homeowner overshadowed any concerns that I might have. Besides, the agent seemed to know just what needed to be done. It was only later that I learned there was some confusion about the location of the property lines. Two years and several thousand dollars later, I finally got things straightened out. When I bought my second home, you can bet that I had a real estate attorney by my side. Everything was checked and double-checked before I signed anything If you are thinking about buying a home, take nothing for granted. Let me tell you more about my experience and why you need your own legal counsel. In the long run, you'll save a lot of time and trouble.

4 Home Staging Tips That Will Help Sell Your Home

Are you getting ready to sell your home, but it's a bit of a mess on the inside? If so, you are going to need some help staging it. Here are a few tips that will help make your home more presentable for when you put it on the market.

Clear The Clutter

The main thing that you are going to have to do is get rid of all the clutter. Clutter makes it look like you have a small home and have run out of places to put things. You'll have to clear the clutter when you finally move, so you better do it now when you are trying to present your home in the best light possible. 

Common places where people tend to have a lot of clutter are the closets. Potential buyers do open up the closets, and when they see them packed to the top with stuff, they tend to think that you are lacking storage. You may need to rent a storage unit to hold stuff temporarily until you are ready to move into your new place, just because it will help it look like you have plenty of room.

Paint Walls With Neutral Colors

Do you have walls that have bright accent colors? Now may be the time to paint them a more neutral color. Neutral colors are a design choice that no one will be upset by. It is easier for buyers to picture themselves in your home if the wall colors aren't too distracting. If a potential buyer walks away from your home and all they can think about are the wall colors, you have left a bad impression on them.

Stage Your Outdoor Areas

You want the outside of your home to feel like an extension of the inside of your home. That's why it's important to stage this part of your home as well. Things like patio furniture can really make the space feel inviting, and help buyers imagine how they are going to use that space to entertain others.

Remove Personalizations

Now is the time to remove decorations that personalize the space to you. This includes family photos hung on the wall and children's artwork on the fridge. You want the buyer to picture them in the space and not as if they are taking over someone else's space.

Struggling to figure out how to stage your home? Reach out to an agent that can help you out with this part of the home selling process.
