After a lot of thought, you've decided to add your house to the real estate market. However, as a first-time home seller, there's plenty you'll need to know to ensure you can maximize your house's sale price. Here are three tips that every first-time home seller needs to know before you list your house on the real estate market: 1. Be realistic when you price your house. What is your home worth? It's the million-dollar question that every home seller needs to consider, because how a home seller prices his or her house may determine how quickly a residence sells. Ultimately, you'll want to be realistic when you price your house. You'll want to find the sweet spot, i.e. a price that makes your house attractive to prospective homebuyers yet ensures you receive fair value for your residence. To price your residence appropriately, be sure to get your house appraised. Also, you'll want to look at the prices of similar homes that currently are listed on the real estate market or sold recently, as this will enable you to determine the right price. Of course, pricing your home competitively will increase the chances that it will generate a lot of interest. And if you do your homework, you're sure to find a fair price that meets your needs as well as the needs of prospective homebuyers. 2. Think about what you'll want to do with your appliances. Do you want to bring your major appliances (like your refrigerator, washing machine and dryer) to your new address? If not, you'll want to account for these items and include them in the price of your home. Comparatively, you may be able to use your appliances in a home negotiation. For instance, you might seal the deal with a homebuyer who is on the fence about making an offer on your home if you offer to include your appliances in the purchase price. On the other hand, if you're in love with your appliances, you need to be ready to bring them with you to your new home. As such, you may need to lower the asking price for your house to account for the fact that a homebuyer will need to buy new appliances. 3. Take a proactive approach to promoting your house. When it comes to selling your house, you'll want to make it as simple as possible for homebuyers to find all of the information they need to understand why your residence is a great choice. For instance, using high-resolution photographs to showcase your residence online can be exceedingly valuable. You also can eliminate clutter from your home and maintain a clean, spacious residence, one that homebuyers can view at any time. Don't forget to collaborate with a first-rate real estate agent, too. With an experienced real estate professional at your side, you'll be able to promote your home to the right homebuyers at the right time consistently. Use the aforementioned tips to get ready to sell your house, and you can increase your chances of optimizing your residence's value in any real estate market.

Since the dawn of the internet age, a growing number of homeowners and bill payers are asking themselves if they really need to keep paying for cable television.

Thereís a lot to consider when it comes to cable. While there are many services that you can find most services and shows that cable TV provides, there arenít any that offer the full package.

Ultimately, the choice of whether or not to cut the cord is down to personal preference. In this post, weíre going to talk about some of the ways you can save by getting rid of cable TV, the services that you can use instead of cable, and what to expect from those services.

The case for cord cutting

Weíre not at a point where you can usually bundle up services to get all of the things you watch on cable TV and then some. Some people argue, however, that to truly get a wide selection of sports, news, and TV shows you would end up paying the same amount as you do for cable. How do they arrive at those figures?

Say you pay about $20 per month for Netflix and Amazon Prime. But you still donít have the sports channels you want so you have to add an additional service. Then you notice your video stream keeps pausing and lagging so you have to upgrade your internet.

If you want every channel under the sun and the highest internet to stream them on, yes it could cost as much to ditch cable as it would be to keep it. But the reality is that most people donít want or need that many services or channels. People donít have time to watch that many shows when they get home from work, and are more than happy with the selection that one $8 per month service offers them.

Alternatives to monthly streaming services

Another thing opponents of cord cutting ignore is the fact that there are a number of services you can get for free that would replace some of the things that cable TV offers.

A number of news channels, as well as entertainment services like YouTube are streaming online for free. You have to watch the occasional advertisement, but you have to do that with cable TV anyway.

If there are local channels you feel youíre missing out on, you can still use a TV antenna, which are broadcasting a higher quality than ever. For $30, you can have access to channels for free over the air (OTA).

OTA channels vary based on your location, so be sure to check to see what the signal is like in your area.

The decision

The best way to decide if youíre ready to ditch cable is to find out which channels and shows you still want access to and to see if you can get them cheaper online. Thatís it.

Odds are your internet is going to be strong enough to stream a show (unless you have a house full of kids trying to do the same thing). So, look into the streaming options, do the math, and make the best informed decision for your household.
