When you decide to sell your home, thereís a long list of things that youíll need to do from finding a real estate agent to making repairs around the home. Itís nice to have a to-do list handy to help you figure out what you need to do and when throughout the course of the sale of your home. 


Find Out The Estimated Value Of Your Home


You should do a quick search online to see what your property is valued at. Some websites even have the number of views that your property has gotten over its lifetime on the site. This will give you an idea of how much you might get for the sale of your home as well as how much interest there may be in buying the home to begin with. If you see what your, home has listed in a basic online search, youíll be able to tell what needs to be updated when the home is actually listed by your realtor.   


Get Things Fixed


If there have been issues in the home, you should work on getting them fixed. Youíll also need to know what has happened in the home over the years in order to put together a proper disclosure. Has the basement flooded? Did you face an electrical fire?  All of these problems need to be listed. You can also disclose what you did to remedy the issues. The buyer has a right to know and understand that they are moving in under good conditions. 


Learn About Potential Real Estate Agents


Itís so important to hire the right agent when youíre selling your home. You are getting a return on your initial investment, so you want it to be a good one! Youíll also want to know that you have someone who will be there to do home showings, process paperwork, and be your advocate throughout the process. You can contact various references that real estate agents provide and ask how they felt about the agentís work. 


Find Out How Your Home Will Be Marketed


In Todayís technology-based world, there are so many ways that a home can be marketed. This includes the use of websites, social media, open houses, video tours, and photos. Your agent should be well-versed in all of these areas, or be able to hire people who do know how to best use these areas of marketing. Every avenue that is used to get buyers for your home is beneficial to you as a seller.



Understanding the process of how a home is sold can help you to be prepared when youíre ready to sell.

Personal financial in your twenties comes with a steep learning curve. One minute youíre studying for your finals and the next youíre expected to suddenly know about APR financing, 401(K)s, and fixed-rate mortgages.

If youíre in your twenties and are facing these new challenges, youíre probably equal parts terrified and excited for the future. And, although it can be anxiety-inducing to step into the world of personal finance, you have one tool to your advantage that your parents and grandparents didnít have: the internet.

So, in this article, weíre going to give you some tips about buying a home and managing your finances in your twenties.

Have an emergency fund

You probably have a lot of things you want to save for. Down payments on mortgages and auto loans, saving money for traveling, beginning your retirement funds, and maybe even starting a family; theyíre all important investments that will take time and financial planning to achieve.

However, one thing that many young people neglect when they first start saving is an emergency fund. There are any number of things that can throw a wrench in your plans in your twenties. You might lose a job and have to live off of savings while hunting for a new one. Maybe something goes wrong with your car and it costs hundreds to repair. Or, you could have unforeseen medical expenses that arenít covered by your insurance. Regardless of the reason, having an emergency fund will help you stay out of unnecessary debt.

Itís recommended to have at least 6 months of living expenses saved in your emergency fund. Once you have this amount saved, itís a good idea to keep it in a separate account to avoid spending it on things that arenít exactly an emergency.

Donít live above your means

We all know that buying a house, going to college, and even buying groceries are all exponentially more expensive than they used to be. However, itís still important to try to adjust your lifestyle to the things you can afford.

This includes the vehicle you drive, the first home you buy, and even smaller purchases you make.

Avoiding lifestyle creep

Related to our last point about living above your means, lifestyle creep is the phenomenon that occurs when you get a raise or a higher paying job: the more we make, the more we spend. However, itís possible to avoid this trend by keeping your finances in check.

The next time you get a raise, make sure that money is put to use in either your retirement fund or savings account. This method is based on the goal of ďgiving every dollar a job.Ē When every dollar you earn has a purpose, youíre less likely to spend it on new video game consoles every six months.
