Determining the fair market price for your house can be a challenge for even the most diligent home seller. As such, it is important to conduct plenty of research before you add your house to the real estate market. Home sellers who perform comprehensive research into the real estate market can find out how similar houses are priced and plan accordingly. Furthermore, home sellers will be able to assess the real estate market in general and get a better idea about how homebuyers may view their residences. Ultimately, it is paramount for a home seller to consider a number of factors to ensure he or she lists a residence at a fair price, including: 1. The Home's Condition A two-bedroom home that requires extensive repairs likely will sell for less than a similar two-bedroom house that has been well maintained over the years. As a result, you'll want to look closely at the condition of your house, and if necessary, complete any home repairs before you add your residence to the real estate market. To fully evaluate your house's condition, you may want to employ a home appraiser to evaluate your residence. This appraiser can help you identify potential home issues that may prevent you from maximizing the value of your house and ensure you can fix these problems quickly. 2. Your Timeline Are you looking to move out of your current residence and into a new house immediately? If so, you may want to consider a below-average price that helps your home stir up interest among a wide range of homebuyers. Conversely, if you're looking to optimize the sale price of your house, you may want to spend some time improving the interior and exterior of your home. By doing so, you'll be able to boost your chances of generating widespread interest in your residence among homebuyers. Consider your timeline as you prepare to list your residence. And remember, if you are in no rush to sell your house, you may be able to wait out homebuyers and ensure you receive an offer that fulfills your needs. 3. Potential Negotiations There are no guarantees that a homebuyer will offer you the asking price of your house, regardless of how long your residence has been available. But if you price your home and are willing to negotiate with a homebuyer, you may be able to improve your chances of a fast sale. For instance, a home seller who leaves is open to negotiations may be willing to settle for less than his or her initial asking price under the right circumstances. And if you work with a real estate agent, this professional could help you find many interested homebuyers in a short period of time. A real estate agent can help you handle any negotiations and ensure you are fully satisfied with any offer you accept. Therefore, this professional can play an important role in the home selling process and enable you to determine the best price for your residence as well. Dedicate the time and resources necessary to price your house, and you should be able to improve your home's chances of garnering interest from homebuyers far and wide.

As little as four decades ago, it was common for Americans to know their neighbors. Homeowners and apartment dwellers knew their neighbors on a first name basis. Young children played with neighboring children, engaging in street races, jump rope,stick ball or flag football. Go back generations and you'd see adult neighbors visiting each other's homes, playing cards, sitting lemonade and chatting and laughing on the front porch.

American neighbors have changed so much over the years

It was as if the entire neighborhood was one big family. Today, few Americans know their neighbors first names, let alone take the time to engage in a sincere conversation with their neighbors. Busy schedules, choosing technology over in-person connections and reports of neighborhood crimes are some of the reasons why Americans erect invisible fences and keep neighbors out.

Coming out of the Great Depression, Americans may have sought and found solace in relationships that they developed with their neighbors. A similar shift happened after 9/11. People accepted each other more readily, even turning away from long held prejudices. But, the neighboring effect only lasted a few weeks.

Don't turn your neighbors into strangers

It's not hard to realize the benefits of developing and nurturing healthy relationships with neighbors. Yet, these relationships don't just happen. To create healthy neighborhood relationships, you need to:

  • Speak with neighbors each time that you see them (This means that you don't only speak with neighbors when you want them to do you a favor or when you're on your way to church.)
  • Offer to help neighbors when you the need arrives (For example, you could offer to assist neighbors if they're struggling to carry groceries onto their front porch. You could also offer to help neighbors during weather storms.)
  • Support neighborhood and community initiatives (Examples of this includes attending city council meetings, joining community preservation organizations and attending community festivals and holiday events.)

Support neighbors. Develop healthy relationships with neighbors without over stepping healthy boundaries. Specific boundaries that your neighbors want vary person to person. For example, some neighbors may prefer to keep relationships at a distance. Other neighbors may enjoy chatting each time they see you.

You really don't have to argue and fight with neighbors

To create healthy neighborhood boundaries you can engage in conversations with neighbors when you see each other outside. You can excuse yourself when you notice that neighbors are hurrying to get inside their house or are hurrying to get to an event away from home.

By teaching your children to call before they stop by a neighbor's house, you can prevent your neighbors from feeling uneasy when you happen upon each other. If neighbors know that you won't stop by without calling first, they can feel confident that they can let their hair down while they're at home. They know that neighbors won't stop by unannounced.

To create healthy neighborhood boundaries, you may also have to train your pets. Stop your pets from relieving themselves in neighboring yards. Pick up after you pets if they relieve themselves while you're walking them around the neighborhood.

These boundaries demonstrate to neighbors that you respect them. It's this respect that helps relationships to develop in healthy, rewarding ways.
