Do you need to hire a real estate agent to help you find your dream home? The choice is yours, but ultimately, your decision to hire a real estate agent to guide you along the homebuying process may determine whether you're able to find your ideal house quickly and effortlessly. Your real estate agent can provide plenty of tips as you search for homes. In fact, there are many terrific reasons to listen to your real estate agent throughout the homebuying process, including: 1. Comprehensive Resources Although you may have a vast array of online resources at your disposal, your real estate likely can provide additional insights you won't find elsewhere. For instance, your real estate can collaborate with a home seller's real estate agent to better understand a seller's preferences. This may allow you to find out whether a seller is looking for a quick sale, how much this seller would accept for his or her residence and other "insider" information. Your real estate agent is happy to provide you with extra resources as well. This professional can send you regular email updates of home listings in particular areas, set up a home showing as soon as a new residence in a specific city or town becomes available and do whatever it takes to ensure you can find your ideal home immediately. 2. Extensive Negotiating Skills Don't enter a home negotiation without a real estate agent at your side. With a real estate agent who understands what it takes to handle a high-pressure negotiation, you should have no trouble striking a fair deal with a home seller. Your real estate agent likely understands how to stay calm, cool and collected in even the most stressful negotiation. Meanwhile, this professional can pass along tips to help you confidently submit an offer on a home and await a seller's response. Ultimately, the negotiating tips and support you receive from your real estate agent can make a world of difference in your efforts to buy a high-quality residence. And in the end, the guidance that your real estate agent provides may help you secure your ideal home. 3. Honesty and Reliability Sometimes, it can be tough to trust a real estate agent. But if you do your homework and hire a real estate agent who is both honest and reliable, you can enjoy consistent support throughout the homebuying process. Employing a first-rate real estate agent ensures you'll be able to receive unbiased feedback as you search for your dream home, too. For example, an honest real estate agent won't be afraid to point out both the pros and cons of a particular home. This feedback will enable you to make a more informed decision and may bolster your chances of purchasing a residence that you can enjoy for years to come. Listen to your real estate agent throughout the homebuying process – you'll be happy you did! By doing so, you can receive expert tips to ensure you're able to buy your dream house at a price that fits your budget.

You know artificial intelligence, aka aI, equipped everything is in. And while AI thermostats, home security, and doorbells are nice… they aren’t particularly exciting. I hear you. And that’s why today I”m sharing my favorite AI equipped kitchen gadgets.

Let’s start with a popular device you’ve probably overlooked - the smart speaker. You know Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri. Pick your preferred flavor of brand loyalty (see what I did there?) because they can all help you out in the kitchen.

For example, have you ever been mid-recipe and realized you’re missing a critical ingredient and need a substitute? Or how many tablespoons are in a ? cup? Whether to serve red or white wine with your zoodles?

With a smart speaker, you can use voice-activated inquiries to get answers to any of your kitchen Q’s. And you won’t have to make a complete mess of your tablet trying to find it.   

Keep your trash can lid clean too by investing in a garbage bin with a motion sensor opening capability. There are so many options at all different price points, this is one techy upgrade anyone can make.

One thing you won’t have to worry about is how long to cook something for or at what temperature if you have the June intelligent oven. This convection oven is full capacity yet still can sit on your countertop. You can also spring for the “pro” version to build it into your existing cabinetry.

Or maybe you want to cook two things at the same time but need them to be at different temperatures? Samsung double oven has a removable divider allowing you to use the full capacity or split it into two. And of course, it has wi-fi connectivity to monitor cooking progress from anywhere.

If you’re the type who can’t just throw two things in the oven at a “good enough” temperature you value quality. The right cooking process can’t be rushed. Chances are you also feel this way about tea.

Not every variety and blend should be steeped at the same temperature water or for the same time. Each has its own best conditions for the perfect cup. But creating those conditions takes time and effort. The Mr.Coffee Tea Maker and Kettle that can be set to the right temp and brew time for every type. It’s literally as simple as pushing a button as the buttons are even clearly labeled for each type.
