One of the most used rooms in the house is the bathroom. You do spend a lot of time in there. You want your bathroom to be an oasis of sorts. Making changes and renovations to your bathroom will not only make you happy but make potential buyers for your home happy as well. Below, youíll find some trends to keep your bathroom stylish and a place that everyone wants to spend (at least some) time in. 


Beware Of Design Trends


Thereís a lot of trendy designs that just arenít timeless. They donít look very good in a bathroom after the initial install and tend to give the bathroom a drab feeling after awhile. Whether itís a crazy color scheme or something bland that lacks texture, you need to think about the longevity of a look before you go after it in your bathroom. Some trends to look out for:


  • Too much white
  • Too little in the bathroom
  • Funky color schemes
  • Gigantic bathtubs
  • Certain kinds of tile and finishes
  • Hardware accents

Really, the bathroom needs to be about balance. There are trends that come and go. Some people are more receptive to certain designs than others. This is because their needs are suited. Take the his and her sink as an example. Many designers are shying away from this trend. For your routines and needs, this could be exactly what your bathroom needs. No hotlist can tell you whatís best for you.


Storage Is A Necessity


If you do only one thing in your bathroom, make sure that you have enough storage. Thereís quite a bit that needs to go in the bathroom like toilet paper, towels, cleaners, medicines, as well as bath products like soap and shampoo. 


Add Pops Of Color


If your bathroom has all white tile and you donít have the time or the resources to actually change the tile, you should try and add pops of color where you can. Itís simple to do this with towels, floral rugs, curtains, and even bath accessories. You can really vary the color in the room and make it special. This is one renovation that doesnít cost much to do but can make a big difference.       

 

Remember What Sells


More neutral colors tend to sell better no matter what room of the house weíre talking about. Itís fine to mix neutral colors with pops of something bolder, but donít go overboard. Remember that when someone goes to buy your home, they want to make it their own as well. They probably canít achieve that with a lime green bathroom.

The homebuying process may prove to be challenging, particularly for individuals who fail to anticipate potential problems. Lucky for you, we're here to help you identify and address homebuying hurdles before they escalate.

Now, let's take a look at three tips to ensure you can seamlessly anticipate and overcome homebuying hurdles.

1. Learn About the Housing Market

The real estate market can be complex. Fortunately, an informed homebuyer should have no trouble resolving potential problems early in the property buying journey.

Examine a wide range of housing market data Ė you'll be glad you did. Look at the prices of recently sold houses Ė as well as the prices of available residences Ė in your preferred cities and towns. With this housing market information, you'll be better equipped than ever before to differentiate a buyer's market from a seller's one and plan your homebuying journey accordingly.

2. Get Home Financing

If you intend to pursue a house, you likely will need a mortgage. Thankfully, banks and credit unions are available to help you obtain a mortgage in no time at all.

Ultimately, it helps to get pre-approved for a mortgage. If you enter the housing market with a mortgage in hand, you can narrow your house search to properties that fall within your price range. And as a result, you could speed up the process of finding and buying your dream house.

When you meet with lenders, don't hesitate to ask lots of questions, either. If you allocate time and resources to learn about all of your home financing options, you can determine exactly which option is right for you.

3. Employ a Real Estate Agent

There is no need to pursue a house on your own, regardless of whether you're an experienced or first-time property buyer. But if you employ a real estate agent, you can work with a homebuying expert who can help you make your homeownership dream come true.

A real estate agent understands what it takes to find a great house at an affordable price. He or she can teach you about the housing market and help you make informed decisions at each stage of the property buying journey. Perhaps best of all, a real estate agent can prepare you for potential homebuying hurdles and ensure you can quickly address these issues.

Let's not forget about the assistance that a real estate agent provides as the homebuying journey progresses as well. A real estate agent will set up home showings, help you weigh the pros and cons of different houses and ensure you can submit an offer to purchase your dream residence. And as you approach the date of your home closing, a real estate agent will offer tips and recommendations to ensure you can finalize your house purchase without delay.

Want to avoid homebuying hurdles? You're not alone. But with the aforementioned tips, you can identify and overcome various homebuying hurdles and effortlessly navigate the property buying journey.

If youíre ready to sell your home, you may wonder if you can do it all on your own or if you need an agent to help you. If you understand what a listing agent can help you to do, youíll better understand their value. 


Listing Agents Help You To Price Your Home


Pricing your home for sale is one of the most challenging parts of selling. Your listing agent can help you to take some of the pressure off. They will do the market research and help you come to that sweet spot for the price. How much your home goes on the market for matters because if the home is priced too high or too low, it can cause buyer interest to dwindle. If the home isnít priced right, it can leave buyers wondering if thereís something wrong with the property or if a better deal will be available on the home at a later date. The price of a home is all part of the marketing strategy. 


Advertising Your Home Listing 


Realtors will be responsible for advertising your home listing. Your home for sale will be available across multiple listing services, giving your home the best chance of being seen by the right buyers.    


Coordinating Open Houses And Showings


Hiring a listing agent can save you a lot of time. Your agent will coordinate your open house and advertise it. Their phone will also be the phone thatís ringing when people want to schedule showings for the house. The agent will coordinate convenient times with you but they will handle the overall scheduling and contact with buyers. 


Questions To Ask A Prospective Listing Agent


  • How many homes have you sold in this area?
  • What price range property do you have the most experience with?
  • How long has it typically taken for a home to be sold?
  • What could be improved in my home to help it sell?
  • What is the marketing plan?
  • Who is the team that works with you?
  • Will you be taking photos or can we hire a professional?
  • Will we be using video marketing?


All of these questions can help you to understand whether youíre hiring the right listing agent for the job of selling your home. Listing agents work hard to earn that commission from the sale of your home. They want nothing more than satisfied clients. Your listing agent will also appreciate your recommendation for a job well done. Know that while you can sell your home on your own, there are many benefits to hiring a listing agent.
