To get top dollar for your home, consider inking a deal with a real estate agent. Real estate agents, especially agents who have been selling homes for several years,are well versed in realtor and lender jargon. They know how to negotiate competitive rates with lenders. Relationships that they have with area real estate agents prevents them from getting hoodwinked.

Pocket bigger profits when you sell your home

But, real estate agents aren't free. Neither are they cheap. Typical commissions that real estate agents charge range from five to six percent of the total price of the house sell. Services included in the commissions depend on agreements that you make with your agent. As an example, a real estate agent might include the costs of house staging, attending open houses and prime real estate listings in their fees.

Your profits depend on what an agent is able to sell your home for. To get more money for your home, real estate agents:

  • Hire inspectors to walk through your house and spot wiring, roofing, flooring and drainage issues. Real estate agents also reach out to contractors, realtors and repair workers to perform upgrades on your home.
  • Research the market and understand competitive housing prices in the regions that they work in. To get you more money for your home, real estate agents also know what the best seasons to get top dollar fora house are.
  • Negotiate closing costs, encouraging buyers to pick up most, if not all, of the closing costs. Real estate agents may also negotiate to have buyers pick up the costs of unforeseen repairs. This may bed one by marketing that sellers are willing to leave one or more appliances in the home. The gain in this instance would come if sellers already planned to get brand new appliances.
  • Educate homeowners on how they can use personal memories and their house's history to build interest in their house. A story goes a long way. Real estate agents know that if sellers make a deep enough personal connection with buyers, the price that buyers are willing to pay for the house could increase.
  • Prepare homeowners for the house staging process. Top real estate agents know interior designers and home stagers. They know how much to spend on staging, when to stage and how much to add to the home.
  • Market open houses. In addition to posting"open house" signs near the home, real estate agents list houses in relevant online and print local and regional lifestyle, investment and realty publications and directories.
  • Take photos and videos of the interior and exterior of your home.
  • Create attention grabbing write ups on your house.

Real estate agents use SEO tactics, real estate websites and emails to generate leads. They use social media, door signs, newsletters and paid ads to generate interest in your house. To get more money for your home, real estate agents also tap into their realtor networks.

Beautiful home libraries are more than storage spaces. Beautiful home libraries encourage learning, inner growth and development. Choose the right shelving and the libraries provide your home an elegant charm. Despite their size, home libraries that take up an entire long wall aren't always expensive.

Building your beautiful home library

Less expensive home libraries call for a little DIY skills. For example, you could purchase four six-foot bookcases from your local office superstore and line the bookcases up side-by-side. It takes about half an hour to build each bookcase. Keep extra shelving knobs in a bag or drawer.

Over time,knobs can bend or get lost. You'll keep your home library shelves from slipping or leaning by replacing damaged or missing knobs. As a tip, make sure that floors you build the bookcases on is flat, as these bookcases can top over if they are placed on uneven flooring. Ebony and cherry wood shelving offers an elegant feel.

White shelving works well in rooms that are painted with neutral colors. Lighter colored bookcases also work well in rooms that are topped with crown molding. Some built in shelves come in white. What you'll get with built in shelving is a casual, modern look.

So many beautiful home library options

Paint wall libraries the same color as the other walls in the room. As an example, you could paint your wall library ocean or turquoise blue, a soft yellow or a mild green. Place a matching colored sectional sofa in the room and decorate the sofa with fashionable pillows.

Tall finished and unfinished chest drawers, the kind that you pick up from secondhand stores and flea markets, bring out the personality in smaller rooms. Hang original oil paintings on both sides of the chest. Open chest drawers wide to show off a library full of large sized, hard cover books. If you're an art lover, place arts books at the center of the chest.

Here's another option. Turn one side of your home office or study into a spectacular library. Decorate your office or study with an antique wood desk and leather,high back chair. Add in an antique coffee table and cabriole sofa. Place your home library next to the sofa. Put the sofa and library so that they face the largest window in the room. You'll love taking in natural outdoor views while you read an entertaining book, work on a new novel, check the mail or finish up a project.

Remember your children. In your children's bedroom, use the space between short windows as library shelves. You could also install narrow three shelf bookcases next to the windows. Section off books with stuffed animals or hand crafted pottery pieces.

There are so many ways to add a beautiful home library to your house. Benefits include a personal history of literacy promotion. After all, print books are becoming more a rarity in today's digital age. But, that doesn't decrease the value of print books.

A way that you can celebrate books and develop a love for ongoing learning is to build your own beautiful home library. Stick to using your library as a place to spotlight your favorite books. Add in decorative knick knacks and family portraits and, before long, your home library might become the favorite place in your home.
