Are you planning on buying a home by a certain date? Itís unfortunate that life canít go as we plan it all the time! With a bit of planning finding the right home at the right time is possible. Many times, families are looking to buy a home before the end of the summer. This allows them to get settled in and get the kids started in a new school before the start of the year in September. Just because there are more popular times throughout the year to move doesnít mean that the inventory of homes changes much as to whatís on the market. Whatever the reason for the short supply of homes, youíll need to be informed and creative in order to land a house in a high demand market when itís crunch time. Below, youíll find some tips to help you on your search.


Research Your Location Ahead Of Time 


Every housing market has a bit of a down time. You want to pinpoint that period. Does your location have a time of year where people flee the area for vacations? The holiday season can also be a great time to look. There may still be low supply, but there also will be less competition. Do a bit of research in order to find pricing trends. When the prices dip, youíll know thatís a time where competition for homes is lower.


Always Have Your Finances In Order


When youíre buying a home, no matter what time of year it is, you need to have your lender on call. Make sure that you have been preapproved and that your downpayment money is at your disposal. Sellers like serious buyers who are ready to pass paperwork.  


Know What Youíre Willing To Compromise On


When youíre buying a home on a timeline, you may not have the luxury of searching around endlessly to meet your wishlist. You should have a few musts, but there may be many things that youíll need to work with or compromise on in finding the right property. You may be able to find a home in the right neighborhood, but it might not have the granite countertops that youíre looking for. When time is of the essence, your home search priorities need to be set straight.  


Donít Look For Bargains


When youíre in a time crunch to land a home, you donít want to fool around with price. In order to land a home that you love, you might have to offer a bit more than the asking price. Thereís no space for a bidding war, a low offer, or an extended search when you need to buy a home fast.

Have you ever wondered how to locate the best place to eat? Whether you are new to an area or just looking for more choices to refresh your repertoire a time of culinary exploration may be the answer to your search. 

New to an area

Being new to an area comes with many of its own challenges and changes and food can be an excellent way to experiment and shape your experience into your own. Trying new dishes can create new traditions for you and your family for years into the future or simply help you to find your new favorite place to go out.

Or been here forever

Likewise, if you have lived in an area for most of your life, someone may ask you where the best place for a certain food is and if you find yourself in the uncomfortable position of not knowing this is a great way to expand your horizons- or at least your answers.

What cuisine are you starting with

Pick a culinary type to start. It can be a local favorite like New York pizza or Memphis BBQ, whatever is in your area. Or, it can be a personal favorite. But you might want to see if there are more great options out there for you.

Make a list

Once you have picked a cuisine look for listings of top rated local places. Start online or with apps for finding restaurants, but don't forget to check with people around you who have tried local restaurantsóneighbors, local newspapers, groups that you are a part of all can be a rich resource of information. Make a list of the places that you want to try; this may consist of locations that everyone mentions or that has great stars, atmosphere or prices. Donít forget to include some hole in the wall places on your list as these can have some of the best food around. Start with your top 10 and one by one, maybe once a week, try them out. 

Try it all- if you can

When you get to each place, make sure to try several things if you can. A great way to do this is to go with friends, and each person orders something different for the table to taste. Ideas of things to order can be the special of the day/chef's special, your favorite dish, something that a reviewer suggested that got the restaurant on your list in the first place, etc.

Get started, have fun, and donít stop

Go on a culinary adventure through town and discover your area and yourself like never before while having fun in the process. Start by talking with your local real estate agent for tips on where to start or to get your list going. Donít stop at just one cuisine, figure out your next one, keep going and have fun!

Itís well into the new year again, and most people have penned down a few resolutions to help improve their personal growth. Constant efforts to enhance personal growth is not so much of a shocker as it happens to be a life-long task. No wonder tips for improving personal growth is one of the most searched topics on the web.

While personal growth and development seem like a huge task to have to bear as you age, a few tips in the right direction can help you expedite the process and shoot you to a level where you must make only minimal changes and adjustments.

Experts recommend practicing these few tips to expedite your personal growth and development. Do well to check them out. Good luck with your goals!

  1. Pursue Your Passion. You will only get distracted if you keep listening to the crowd. Learn to stand out. Pursue the things you have a passion for and donít let anyone talk you down. Totally ignore naysayers!
  2. Dream with a Dose of Realism. It is fantastic to dream and make big plans but remember to be realistic in your baby steps. Making unrealistic expectations of yourself early on will derail your growth because you wonít give yourself time to develop stability at each stage of growth. To save time, energy, resources, and to save you the feeling of being incompetent, it is advisable to make achievable plans. 
  3. Learn to Accept Who You Are. Nowadays, everyone wants to be someone else. You fight so hard to be like someone, and that person is putting in a tough fight to be like someone else entirely and on and on goes the vicious circle. The first step to expedite your personal growth and development is self-acceptance. Everyone makes mistakes. That is what makes you human. Learn from your mistakes and create a better version of yourself instead of fighting so hard to be someone else. Life is not a ĎFreaky Friday' show. Learn to love yourself!
  4. Be Creative. Creativity is the key to expediting your personal growth and development. Allow your mind to wander. Learn a skill or two and work towards perfecting them every day. Get involved in anything creative. Spend time with creative people. Just be creative!
  5. Baby Steps. Personal growth can get overwhelming sometimes. You feel like you are not producing the results your efforts deserve at some point. It happens to everyone. Be kind to yourself and take each day as it comes. Yes, you must give it your best shot, but learn to appreciate the little growth you see daily. You wonít get there overnight. That doesnít mean you wonít get there eventually. Take baby steps!

If one of the steps you want to take this year is property ownership, reach out to your real estate professional to learn what steps to take to attain your dream.

When prospective buyers stop by to see your house, they're going to be barraged by a variety of sights, sounds, and smells. Some of these sensations will immediately capture their attention, while others may register on a subconscious level.

The encouraging thing to keep in mind is that you can control many aspects of how visitors experience your home.

Here are a few quick tips for making your home as appealing as possible:

Flower arrangements can add a touch of freshness and eye appeal to both the interior and exterior of your home and property. They can also infuse the air with an appealing fragrance, which can make a positive impression on potential buyers. One cautionary note is that wilted or tired-looking floral displays are not going to have the same positive impact as fresh, vibrant ones. Also keep in mind that some flowers smell more appealing than others. Most people generally prefer subtle fragrances, rather than overpowering smells! If the season and your climate permit it, placing hanging baskets of colorful flowers on your front porch and other locations can add immensely to the visual appeal of your property.

Make sure all surfaces are sparklingly clean! Imagine a prospect reaching for a house flyer or information sheet about your home, and finding that the paper was stuck to the kitchen counter! You also don't want them feeling a sticky or wet sensation when they touch or lean their elbow on a counter, tabletop, or refrigerator handle! The same rule-of-thumb can be applied to floor surfaces. If there are sticky spots, stains, or visible spills on the floor, you can be sure that's going to negatively impact a prospect's opinion of your home. It's not easy to keep your home spotless when it's on the market (or at any other time), but if you prioritize areas like floor, countertops, and sinks, then you'll be much less likely to overlook common problem areas. Eliminating pet odors, laundry smells, mold, and mildew will also make your home a much more inviting and appealing place for house hunters, real estate agents, and other visitors.

Reduce household noises whenever possible. Noises, such as squeaky hinges, loud HVAC systems, or rumbling garage doors can imply several things to prospective home buyers -- all of which are undesirable! Low-cost, DIY solutions to these problems are often available, although in some cases, it might be necessary to call a repairman or service person to check out your operating systems and make needed adjustments.

There are a lot of things to be aware of when you sell your house, but if you approach different tasks in a systematic, methodical way, you'll be much more likely to remember the important stuff and avoid sticky situations that could undermine your chances for getting your house sold quickly!
