Getting the best price for your residence can be easy, particularly if you allocate the necessary time and resources to become a smart home seller.

What does it take to become a smart home seller? Here are three tips to help you do just that.

1. Analyze the Housing Market Closely

The housing market can be tricky to navigate, especially for a first-time home seller. Fortunately, those who spend some time reviewing the real estate sector closely can identify housing market patterns and trends and plan accordingly.

For example, a home seller should check out the prices of comparable houses in his or her area. This will enable a property seller to understand how his or her home stacks up against the competition.

A home seller also should review the prices of recently sold homes. This will allow a home seller to differentiate between a buyer's market and a seller's market.

2. Take a Look at Your Home – Both Inside and Out

When a homebuyer views your house for the first time, will your residence make a positive first impression? If you're unsure, you may want to conduct a home appraisal as soon as possible.

A home appraisal allows a property inspector to examine your residence both inside and out. That way, you can identify any potential problems with your residence and make home improvements as needed.

There are many quick, simple ways to enhance your property's appearance without breaking your budget too.

For example, mowing the front lawn and trimming the hedges can help you transform an ordinary home exterior into an exceptional one.

Or, if you want to upgrade your house's interior, eliminating clutter usually is a great idea. Removing unwanted items from your house will help you free up space so you can show off the true beauty of your residence's interior.

3. Work with a Real Estate Agent

No one should be forced to navigate the home selling journey alone. Lucky for you, real estate agents are available who can help you seamlessly add your home to the housing market and optimize your residence's value.

A real estate agent will meet with you to understand your home selling goals. Then, he or she will help you map out a home selling journey, one that guarantees you can generate plenty of interest in your residence as soon as it becomes available.

Usually, a real estate agent will help you get your home ready to add to the real estate market. He or she will offer honest, unbiased home improvement recommendations so you can upgrade your residence in no time at all.

Perhaps best of all, a real estate agent will set up home showings, promote your residence to homebuyers and negotiate with property buyers on your behalf. And if you ever have home selling concerns or questions, a real estate agent will be happy to respond to them instantly.

Take the guesswork out of selling your home – use the aforementioned tips, and you can become a smart home seller.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you know AI (artificial intelligence) assistants are the new must-have tech gadget. They are quickly popping up in homes everywhere and making families lives so much easier.

Google Home with its Google Assistant has the deepest wealth of knowledge to pull from (ahem… Google Search) and can sync up with your existing Google account preferences. Which means you don’t have to worry about downloading extra apps, creating new accounts or recreating the content and information you already have elsewhere.  

To perform tasks Google Assistant uses pre-established “Home Commands” that trigger an action. To signal that you are speaking to the assistant you start your request with “Okay Google”. If you have an Android you might already be familiar with this process. Which is another tick on the pros column for Google Home for those who are keeping tally.

Get your itinerary by asking “Okay Google, what do I have planned next week” or “What do I have planned today”. Google Assistant will pull right from your Google Calendar and remind you of upcoming appointments, reminders, and events.

Set a timer when cooking by simply stating how long you need one to be set for. You can also set alarms by request. Change your morning alarm or set up daily reminders to take a medication or start dinner, for example.

Control your smart home devices with Google Home. The Assistant can raise or lower the temperature of your home if you have a smart thermostat. It can also turn lights and devices on or off to those hooked up to a smart outlet.

Of course, there is always the option to ask Google Assistant to play music, radio, podcasts or an audiobook. Perfect for to keep your mind busy during those deep cleaning days or when exercising at home.

Never forget anything again by asking the Assistant to remember things for you. It can be anything - to call your mother, pick up a birthday present to your nephew or know how long that sauce has been in the fridge. Then when you need to know you can simply ask for the Assistant to remind you.

Order pizza through Domino’s. Pizza on demand. Need I say more?

With face recognition capabilities Google Home hooked up with a smart doorbell can tell you who is at the door. The Nest Hello doorbell has a built-in camera to allow Google Assistant to recognize faces that you’ve configured it to remember.

Use IFTT, the automation app, If This Then That, to come up with your own commands. Use it to create commands that trigger an action of your choosing. You can add to your to-do list, iPhone calendar, and other apps. Ask for the Assistant to call your phone when it inevitably gets lost (probably between the couch cushions).
