When youíre shopping for a home, one of the most important things is that you feel comfortable in the home. Sure, you can look at the listing and visit the property, but youíll never know what itís like to sleep in a home until you move in. While there arenít many homeowners that offer overnights in order for you to feel out their property listing, there are ways that you can test a home out subtly.


Check Out The Neighborhood


You can learn a lot about a neighborhood just by observing the area. See how many people are out walking around. What is the age group of the people you see? This can give you a great idea of the neighborhood that your potential home is in. You could do this investigating several times at different hours of the day to get a full picture of the area.


Getting out and taking a stroll around the neighborhood is also a great idea to see what potentially living in your new home will be like. Check out public transportation options and local establishments like restaurants and coffee shops. Another great place to check out is local parks and recreation centers. This will allow you to see both the quality and the quantity of the options available to you. 


Test The Plumbing


If you have a chance as youíre walking through a home, touring it, be sure to check out the plumbing. Turn on the faucets. See how the water pressure from the shower is. It seems like kind of a strange thing to think of testing, but itís important. You donít want to move into a house only to find out the water pressure is unlivable and the hot water isnít so hot! 


Check Out How The Windows Work


A home with a breeze is always nice. See if any windows get stuck or are leaking out cold air when shut. This is a subtle way to do your own home inspection of an important aspect of your potential future home. Paying attention to the windows can also help you to hear the noise factor that you might face in the home. Can you hear a lot of traffic? Is the neighborhood quiet? Discovering these things will be very important in your decision to purchase a home.   


How Is The Storage Space?


Look around the homes that youíre considering and see how much storage space youíll have. Is there a basement or an attic or both? How easy are these spaces to access? If a home lacks adequate closet space for storing things like towels, cleaners, clothing, etc, you may find yourself scrambling for ways to keep all of your things in the home once you move in. Make sure the storage space you see is enough for you and your familyís lifestyle.

Selling a house and getting a residence show-ready are two entirely different things.

If you list your house, homebuyers can evaluate it at their convenience. But merely listing a residence offers no guarantees.

Instead, a home seller may want to get his or her residence show-ready. Because if a house is show-ready, the likelihood increases that homebuyers will fall in love with this home as soon as they see it.

There are many quick, easy ways to get your home show-ready, and these include:

1. Clean and Declutter Your Home

Mop the floors, wipe down countertops and conduct various home cleaning tasks. That way, you can transform an ordinary home interior into an immaculate one.

Also, don't forget to declutter your residence as much as possible. If you evaluate your personal belongings, you can identify clutter and work to remove excess items from your house.

For those who need to get rid of clutter, you may be able to sell excess items at a garage sale or online. Also, you can donate excess items to local charities or give these items to family members and friends.

2. Revamp Your House's Exterior

Mow the front lawn, repair any cracked or damaged home siding and complete assorted home exterior improvements. By doing so, you can boost your house's curb appeal and help your home stand out to potential buyers.

Remember, your home's curb appeal may make or break a possible sale. If you allocate the necessary time and resources to revamp your house's exterior, you can increase the chance that a buyer will set up a home showing that could lead to a home sale.

3. Perform Last-Minute Touch-Ups

The final hours before a home showing can be stressful. Fortunately, if you know how to perform myriad last-minute touch-ups, you can boost the likelihood that your residence will make a great first impression on buyers.

Opening the blinds is a great way to brighten up your house prior to a showing. Furthermore, you should empty any trash bins to minimize the risk that unpleasant odors may emanate throughout your home.

Clearly, there's a lot that you can do to get your house show-ready. And if you need extra help as you sell your house, you may want to collaborate with a real estate agent as well.

A real estate agent is a housing market expert who understands what it takes to get a house show-ready. He or she is happy to provide home showing recommendations to ensure that you can stir up plenty of interest in your residence.

Of course, a real estate agent provides plenty of assistance throughout the home selling process too. This housing market professional will help you craft an engaging home listing, promote your residence to potential buyers and negotiate with a buyer's agent on your behalf. He or she will even respond to your home selling concerns and queries.

Prepare your house for a showing Ė use the aforementioned tips, and you should have no trouble getting your residence show-ready.
