Selling your home presents many opportunities and challenges. On the one hand, home sellers have an opportunity to earn a profit if they can stir up substantial interest in their properties. Comparatively, selling a home can be difficult, particularly for property sellers who are working in a buyer's market.

Ultimately, the home selling experience should be memorable for all the right reasons, and we're here to help you get the most out of the property selling journey.

What does it take to enjoy an unforgettable home selling experience? Here are three tips to ensure you can do just that.

1. Conduct a Home Appraisal

You love your home, but you also understand that your residence is far from perfect. As such, a home seller should perform a property appraisal before adding his or her house to the real estate market.

During a home appraisal, a property expert will examine your residence and identify any problem areas. That way, you can uncover "hidden" problems with your residence and correct these issues as needed.

A home appraisal is exceedingly valuable, especially for home sellers who want to get the best price for a property. The appraisal may require only a few hours to complete and will provide you with comprehensive insights into your home's strengths and weaknesses.

2. Prep Your Home's Exterior and Interior

Your home only gets one chance to make a positive first impression on property buyers, so why not make the most of it?

With a dazzling home exterior, you can boost your home's chances of generating plenty of interest from property buyers.

Home exterior improvements often are simple to complete. In fact, quick, easy tasks like mowing the front lawn or removing dirt and debris from walkways can make a world of difference in the eyes of homebuyers.

Don't forget to clean your home's interior as well. Mopping the floors, wiping down countertops and performing other home interior maintenance may help your residence stand out to property buyers during home showings and open houses.

3. Collaborate with a Real Estate Agent

With a real estate agent at your side, you should have no trouble enjoying a terrific home selling journey.

A real estate agent is a housing market professional who understands what it takes to sell a residence. He or she can provide extensive insights into real estate market trends and ensure you can make informed home selling decisions.

Typically, a real estate agent will set up home showings, negotiate with homebuyers on your behalf and promote your residence. This housing market professional also will respond to your home selling concerns and queries. By doing so, a real estate agent can help you accelerate the home selling cycle and optimize the value of your residence.

When it comes to selling your home, hiring a real estate agent is a must. This real estate professional will go above and beyond the call of duty to streamline the home selling process and help you can get the best results possible.

Chimney maintenance and repair is incredibly important. You need to complete certain tasks to ensure that your fireplace is working safely and effectively. There’s no better time than the off season to get these tasks in order. 


Remember that you should only burn dry wood in your fireplace. Although fireplaces aren’t high on the technology spectrum, they do require some effort to keep in working order. Failure to do so can result in smoke and even a chimney fire. Soot build up can put a damper on the proper ventilation of the chimney. The soot is partly a result of creosote- a combustible, tar-like substance. It’s a natural by-product of wood that has been burned. With reduced ventilation, the creosote will cause potentially dangerous build up.


While creosote itself is not flammable, it can cause the chimney to clog and structural damage could result. It’s important to properly maintain your chimney in order to prevent dangerous oil build-up that can cause a chimney fire.


Inspections


A professional can come and inspect your fireplace and chimney. They can check for damage, obstructions, build-up, or soot. The inspector will be able to determine if you need a sweep of your chimney. The inspector will be able to do the sweep on the spot in most cases. An inspection of your chimney should take place every year.   


There are different levels of chimney inspections that occur. Basic inspections are a visual look at anything that could be in your chimney from soot to a bird’s nest. More complex inspections could involve taking the chimney apart and physically reconstructing the structure. This would occur after some kind of a natural disaster like a hurricane or a tornado. The cost of these inspections depends on how extensive they become.


Other Maintenance


You can improve your fireplace’s functioning with a few basic steps. Fist, you should only burn dry wood. Logs should be split and dried for 8-12 months. You should also burn certain types of wood especially hardwoods like hickory, oak, beech, maple and ash. These woods burn the longest. The most important thing about wood to be burned in the fireplace is that it is dry.       


Burn Only Wood


It can be tempting to throw things into your fireplace to burn, but you should keep away from burning construction wood, plastics, or other things that could let off odors. Even burning paper can be dangerous because of the embers that result as the fire burns.


If you keep on top of your scheduled chimney maintenance and replace parts as needed, you’ll be able to have lovely fires all winter long with peace of mind.
