A successful home selling experience is not a guarantee. However, if you prepare for the house selling journey, you may be better equipped than others to reap the benefits of a quick, profitable home selling experience.

Now, let's take a look at three tips so you can set yourself up to succeed during the house selling journey.

1. Identify Your Home's Strengths and Weaknesses

Your home has served you well for many years, yet your residence still has flaws. Fortunately, if you allocate time and resources to identify your house's strengths and weaknesses, you may find ways to improve your residence before you list it.

Consider the buyer's perspective – you'll be glad you did. If you take an objective view of your residence, you may be able to identify assorted home problems and correct them right away.

Also, it may be beneficial to conduct a house inspection. Following an inspection, you'll receive a report that outlines any underlying problems with your house. You then can use this report to prioritize home repairs and upgrades.

2. Establish a Competitive Initial Asking Price

As a home seller, it is important to do everything you can to establish a competitive initial asking price for your residence. Thanks to a home appraisal, you can gain the insights you need to price your house appropriately.

During a home appraisal, a property expert will evaluate your home and various real estate market data. Next, this property expert will provide you with a property valuation. With this property valuation in hand, you can set an aggressive initial asking price for your house.

Maintain flexibility with your home price, too. And remember, if you upgrade your home before you list it, you may be able to receive multiple homebuying proposals at or above your residence's initial asking price.

3. Collaborate with a Real Estate Agent

For those who want a helping hand throughout the house selling journey, it may be a good idea to hire a real estate agent. Because if you have a real estate agent at your side, you can receive comprehensive support at each stage of the home selling journey.

A real estate agent is happy to teach you about all aspects of the house selling journey and ensure you can plan accordingly. He or she can help you identify your house's strengths and weaknesses, price your home appropriately and much more. Plus, once you list your residence, a real estate agent will set up home showings and open house events to promote your property. And if you receive an offer to purchase your house, a real estate agent will help you analyze this proposal and make an informed house selling decision.

If you want to take the guesswork out of selling your home, you should start preparing today. By taking advantage of the aforementioned tips, you can plan ahead for the house selling journey and set yourself up for a successful home selling experience.

Did you know that November, December, January and February are top months for carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning deaths in the United States?

home heater furnace

These are the primary months when consumers crank up their furnaces and portable heaters to stay warm. Nearly two-thirds of non-fire related CO deaths take place in those four cold weather months.


Portable gas generators are also used in the cold months because of power outages, due to snow and ice storms.

Generator scene

CPSC has joined with the National Fire Protection Association this year to warn consumers and firefighters about CO, which kills more than 400 people every year, according to the CDC. CO is called the invisible killer because you cannot see or smell it.

Here is what you can do to prevent CO from hurting your family:

  • Before using your chimney or turning on the furnace, get chimneys and fuel-burning appliances checked by a professional who services those items to make sure they are working correctly and vented to the outside properly.
    • Get a CO alarm. Better yet, install one on every level of your home and outside sleeping areas.

CO alarm

  • If you already have CO alarms, make sure they are working properly. Have you changed the batteries this year? If not, replace the batteries.
  • Replace CO alarms every 5 years or as recommended by the manufacturer. Newer CO alarms have end of life indicators that beep when the alarm is at the end of its working life and needs to be replaced.
  • Never use a portable generator inside your house, garage, basement, crawlspace, shed or in a semi-enclosed space, such as a porch close to the house. Generators should be at least 20 feet away from the house when in use.

Freezing weather and snow in the winter are a fact of life. Don’t let CO take yours.
