If you’re a first-time homebuyer you might be worried or anxious about the process of making an offer on a home. After all, negotiating isn’t something most of us look forward to on a day to day basis and we try to avoid it when possible. When it comes to buying a home, however, negotiating is usually part of the process.

One of the benefits of working with a real estate agent is that they have the knowledge and expertise to help you out through the negotiation process. Not only will they help you formulate your offer, but they’ll also present the offer for you and handle the in-person negotiations.

Buyer’s vs seller’s market

Whether or not the odds are in your favor depends on many things. One important factor is the state of the real estate marketing. In a seller’s market, which is what we’re in right now, there are more buyers looking for homes than there are sellers trying to sell them.

However, you can still edge past the competition in a seller’s market if you plan accordingly. This is when negotiation comes into play, and when effective negotiation can get your offer accepted where others are declined.

Time is of the essence

When you’re shopping for a home in a seller’s market, you’ll need to be swift with your offer and counteroffers to stay ahead of other prospective buyers. However, being too hasty with your offers can seem imposing or reckless. It’s better to take a day longer to come up with a more effective offer than it is to make an offer that looks bad to the seller.

Be clear and concise

Just as you’re nervous making offers on a home, sellers are usually nervous fielding them. So, if you want to make things easier for you and your seller, make sure your offer is simple and straightforward.

This involves removing unnecessary contingencies and sticking to the contract basics--inspection, appraisal, and financing. If the seller receives another offer that is riddled with contingencies, they might prefer to work with you since you presented them with a simple contract.

Be prepared

Having your paperwork in order, getting preapproved, and making yourself available as much as possible will go a long way in the negotiation process. Now more than ever it’s important to be well-organized.

Do your homework on the house and neighborhood you’re interested in. Make sure you know if there is a lot of interest in the area and the house in particular. This will let you know how much breathing room you have.

Getting preapproved will not only help you know the limits you can offer but it will also signal to the seller that you’re a serious buyer.


Trying to choose colors for the inside and outside of your home can be awfully tricky. Finding which shades mix in order to decorate your rooms can seem dizzying. With a little confidence and some knowledge, you’ll be able to find colors that you’ll love for a long time to come. Here’s some tips to help you find the right mix for your home’s color scheme. 

Look For Inspiration


Whether you’re in your friend’s living room and see a color combo that you really love, or are looking in a magazine and see something unique, make note of it for your own uses.  


Find Colors That You Can Live With


While bright green and orange may look cool together, can you really live with these hues in a room? Discover what colors make you feel a certain way. If the room is meant to make you feel calm and collected, you’ll want to find colors that are soothing to you and your soul. If the room is meant to be more energizing, you’ll want to pick a more vibrant, energetic color. Keep in mind that the color in a room affects the mood of the room. 


Get Plenty Of Samples


From sample color swatches to small cans of paint samples, there’s plenty of resources at your local hardware store to get you started on finding the perfect colors for a room. Be sure to hold the swatches up in different lighting and see how they look in the space by going around the room from wall to wall. This will help you to see how the color will look once it’s actually painted on the walls in different lighting.


Find Matches


The next question that you’ll have once you get your paint up is what kind of colors will go well in this room. It’s good to have a few ideas in mind. If you already own a sofa, for example, start by working with that color. If the sofa is brown, for example, you may not want brown walls as well. Work with what you have first. If you’re buying new furniture and accessories, you may want to work with what you’re hoping to put in the room. The task of choosing colors for the interior of your home involves thinking about both design and function.           


Nature Has Some Answers For You


If you really love the beach, think of the colors that are present there. There’s tan colored sand along with blue skies, blue water, and touches of green from seagrass, trees, and other plants. Nature’s color palette is quite extensive and the good news is that all of the landscapes match! It you look around in nature, you can get a great idea for the beginnings of a fantastic color scheme for any room in your home.
