Nelson Matos - RE/MAX Welcome Home

When you stop and think about it, there are a lot of aspects of our lives that need continual organizing. The ideal scenario is to set up an organizing system when you first move into a new home, and then maintain it on a daily or weekly basis. Unfortunately, many people wait to organize their closets, pantries, or home offices until those areas are in a state of utter chaos. By then, the clutter has taken on a life of its own! Not only is it difficult to find things you're looking for, but your frustration can spill over into other aspects of your life. Kitchen Organizing Tips Being organized is the bedrock of a well-managed life. While it's far from a panacea, the results of organizing your home and work space can be far reaching. Take your refrigerator, for example. How many times has perfectly good food been wasted because it was pushed back into a corner and forgotten about until it turned into a "science experiment"? Although refrigerators are designed with organization in mind, it's all too easy to throw vegetables in the meat drawer and haphazardly wrap up leftovers without labeling them. As a side note, if you write the current date on the label, you'll be able to keep track of how long it's been in the fridge and whether it's time to throw it away. (Note: The U.S. Department of Agriculture advises that cooked leftovers be used within four days. Its food safety "window" for raw poultry and ground beef is even shorter: only one or two days.) Whether your goal is to organize your refrigerator, kitchen cabinets, bedroom closets, or garage, the benefits are worth the time and energy. Before getting started, though, it's helpful to make a trip to a local office supply outlet, kitchen retailer, or dollar store to pick up an assortment of small containers, canisters, drawer dividers, a marking pen, and labels. The Benefits of Organizing Your Home Getting started is the hardest aspect of home organizing, but there are many sound reasons for taking the initiative:

  • Improving the appearance of your home rewards you with a sense of accomplishment and a feeling of personal satisfaction.
  • When you organize closets, cabinets, or other storage areas, you'll stumble upon things you thought you misplaced or lost, long ago.
  • You'll get rid of miscellaneous junk and clutter, which will free up space for things you want to save, refer to, or use in the near future.
  • Organizing your household supplies, tools, and kitchen accessories will also prevent you from having to buy replacement items that you already have. Knowing where things are will save you time, money, and aggravation!
Maintaining a Semblance of Order Getting your family to clean and organize their own rooms and work spaces is a separate challenge, but setting a positive example is one of the first steps. In the case of children, clear expectations need to be set and daily routines established. When all else fails, bribery has been know to work, too!

When youíre trying to sell your home, there are a few mistakes that could make or break completing the sale of the home in a timely manner. While some things like a tough market or a home with a lot of extra-special features are out of your immediate control, there are plenty of things that you can do when it comes to selling your home. Read on for expert selling tips on what to avoid when your home is going on the market.

Your Home Is Overpriced

Overpriced homes tend to sit on the market for a longer period of time. This is because buyers can see that the price isnít right and are waiting for a price drop. Itís so easy to overestimate the value of your home as well. 

When a home sits on the market for a longer period of time, buyers also wonder if thereís something wrong with the home. Was there a botched inspection? Does the home need major work thatís not visible to the naked eye? An idle home sale leaves buyers wondering, and your home still left on the market.

As far as price goes, if your home has been sitting on the market, youíll need to consider dropping the price in a timely fashion if the price isnít right. You also should be open to bargaining with buyers. In the grand scheme of selling a home sometimes being stubborn with $5,000 doesnít pay off in the end. 

You Didnít Clean Before A Showing

When your home goes on the market, youíll need to do a deep clean of the home. This could mean shelling out some money for a professional cleaning service. Buyers want to see homes that are in pretty good condition. Itís hard to picture living in a place where thereís a lot of dirt and clutter. If you need to, put some of your stuff in storage for the showing. Buyers need some vision to help them decide on the home thatís right for them. You can help them to find that vision with a spotless house.

Using Subpar Photographs

When it comes to selling your home, you want the best possible photographs to depict your property. Most home buyers start their search online these days and high-quality photographs are the best first impression of your property that you can give. A few cell phone pictures just wonít cut it. If you canít get professional photographs done to sell your home, you might want to find someone with a more professional camera or a bit of amateur photography skills. Buyers are focusing on the pictures way more than they are the words in descriptions for online listings. Find the best way to give buyers an overview of your property in images with a good impression.
