As you get ready to add your house to the real estate market, you likely will consider high and low initial asking prices. However, it is important to remember that no two residences are exactly alike. And much in the same vein, the initial asking price for your home may vary from that of a similar residence based on your house's condition, age and other factors.

Ultimately, a diligent home seller will allocate the necessary time and resources to determine a competitive initial asking price for his or her residence. This seller will be able to establish an initial home asking price that hits the mark with buyers, and as a result, stir up plenty of interest in his or her house.

Determining the ideal initial home asking price may seem tough at first. Fortunately, we're here to help you set a competitive price for your residence, regardless of the current housing market's conditions.

Now, let's take a look at three tips to help you establish the ideal initial asking price for your residence.

1. Assess Your Home

The present condition of your house may have a major impact on its value. Thus, you should perform a home inspection before you list your house to identify any underlying problems and address such issues.

A home inspection is generally requested by a buyer after a seller accepts an offer on a residence. Conversely, a seller who wants to go above and beyond the call of duty may perform an inspection to take a proactive approach to home improvement projects. This approach may help a seller mitigate potential home problems before they are discovered later in the home selling process.

Thanks to a home inspection, a seller can establish home improvement priorities. Then, this seller can perform myriad home improvements and move closer to maximizing the value of his or her residence.

2. Evaluate the Housing Market

Operating in a seller's market is far different from selling a house in a buyer's market. If you review the real estate market, you can gain the insights you need to establish a competitive price for your home.

Take a look at the prices of houses in your area that are similar to your own residence. This information will enable you to understand the price range for comparable houses in your city or town.

Also, evaluate the prices of recently sold residences in your area. This housing sector data will allow you to determine whether you are operating in a buyer's or seller's market.

3. Collaborate with a Real Estate Agent

A real estate agent knows the ins and outs of selling a home in any housing market. He or she can offer a wide assortment of housing market data. Perhaps most important, a real estate agent will make it simple for you to establish a competitive price for your residence and reap the benefits of a fast, profitable home selling experience.

Want to add your house to the real estate market? Use the aforementioned tips, and you should have no trouble setting a competitive initial asking price for your house.

If a new home has you dreaming of new possibilities for your lifestyle. This seems to be especially true when buyers home of choice has a spare bedroom and/or finished basement. Upgrade your lifestyle by creating a room dedicated solely to your interests.

Here are five ideas that will have you feeling like you're living the luxe life.

A home gym is a perfect addition to a finished basement or large spare room. To get a true gym feel install large mirrors, a widescreen tv and built-in speakers. Depending on the size of the room and amount of large exercise equipment you include in your room you can make this room even more upscale. Investing in a sauna and/or tanning bed will provide the perfect source of relaxation after a strenuous workout.

If you are a creative having a room solely dedicated to your craft is a dream come true. Whether you’re a painter, writer, scrapbooker or seamstress a whole room to neatly organize the tools of your trade is a new level of freedom. Most likely you are accustomed to packing up and stashing them away after each time you create. Claim your space and let your artistic genius flow!   

An increasingly popular addition in new homes is a gaming room. And not in the sense of darts and foosball. Instead, homeowners are creating a space dedicated solely to their multiple video game consoles and creating the perfect gaming environment. Installing surround sound and a large widescreen tv will have you feeling completely immersed in the game experience. A comfortable sofa and well-stocked mini fridge will keep you fueled for those long hours invested in beating your next game.

Another popular choice is a sports bar or what many would call a “Man Cave”. As with a gaming room, you’ll want to create the ultimate game day experience with surround sound and a large high-def tv. Leather couches and a wet bar that includes a built-in beer fridge are a must for this room. Bring in a healthy dose of team pride with framed posters, signed memorabilia and mascot emblazoned items. All that’s left is to prep some game day snacks and stock the fridge before inviting guests over to cheer on the home team.

A spare bedroom should be taken advantage of. Don’t let it become a giant storage closet or a hardly used guest room. Instead, create a room that is unique to you and your lifestyle. Whether you’re a creator, a gym junkie or game fanatic your own room will get more than its share of usage. By investing in your own interests you’ll be gifting yourself downtime and a happier future.
