If you receive an offer to purchase your home, you may have only a limited amount of time to decide whether to accept this proposal. As such, there are several factors you'll want to consider to determine whether to approve an offer to purchase your home. These factors include:

1. The Price of Your Home

If you established a competitive initial asking price for your home, you should have no trouble determining whether an offer to purchase falls in line with your expectations. Thus, if an offer to purchase your home is at or above your residence's initial asking price, you may want to accept a buyer's proposal and move forward with a house sale.

Of course, if an offer to purchase your house falls below your residence's initial asking price, you should still evaluate the proposal closely. If you feel the offer to purchase is the best proposal you might receive, you may want to accept it.

2. The Current State of the Local Housing Market

Examine the current state of the local housing market – you'll be glad you did. If you discover you are operating in a buyer's or seller's market, you can assess an offer to purchase your home accordingly.

If you find a buyer's market is in place, you may be more inclined than ever before to accept a competitive offer to purchase your home. Because in this market, the number of sellers exceeds the number of buyers, and rejecting a homebuying proposal does not guarantee you will receive better offers to purchase in the near future.

Comparatively, if a seller's market is in place, you may want to take a wait-and-see approach to any offers to purchase your residence. In this market, the number of buyers exceeds the number of quality houses available. As a result, you may receive dozens of offers to acquire your residence if you wait for the local housing market to develop.

3. Your Home Selling Goals

You should feel good about accepting an offer to purchase your house. Therefore, if an offer to purchase enables you to achieve your home selling goals, you may want to accept it sooner rather than later. By doing so, you can take the next step to finalize your house sale.

As you debate how to proceed with an offer to purchase your house, you may want to consult with a real estate agent too. This housing market professional may be able to offer housing market insights that you won't find anywhere else. Plus, he or she can provide honest, unbiased home selling recommendations. And if you ultimately decide to accept an offer to purchase your residence, a real estate agent can guide you along the final stages of the property selling journey.

There is no reason to settle for a subpar offer to purchase your house. But if you consider the aforementioned factors, you can make an informed decision about whether to accept, reject or counter a homebuying proposal.

If you need to stage your home no doubt that you know that it needs to look neutral to be appealing to the audience that sees it. What you may not know is how to do that, or you may think that you will need someone to come in and do it for you. If you follow a few simple steps, you may be able to avoid having to go that route.

Depersonalize it

When you are staging a home, it is for the person seeing it to see themselves in it. Seeing a room from the buyer point of view can be difficult to do if you have family photos, kid’s artwork, knick-knacks from places that you’ve been to, diplomas or other personal items around taking up mental space. These are the items that make a house a home but for this purpose that is not what you want. 

Clear out the clutter

We all have our connection to items around us. The vase from your great-aunt, a trophy from winning a sports competition or dried bouquet from your first anniversary, but these sentiments mean nothing to an outsider looking in. Make sure that any shelves, counters, and even your refrigerator have a minimum of items on them. Try to go for one to three things in each location. Minimizing clutter allows for the space to be seen and again for the viewers to be able to envision themselves there.

Reduce the furniture

Having each room filled to the brim with furniture may be a necessity for you, but it is crucial that people get a picture of the space available. Also, if you have furniture that is set-up in such a way that reduces the appearance of roominess or in a way that is otherwise awkward it will be worth it to re-adjust or remove these pieces to your storage.

Clean and smelling good

No one wants to be in a place that is not clean. Do a deep clean on the house. Wash the windows. Wipe down the baseboards and window sills. Steam clean the carpet. Disinfect the light switches and door knobs, etc. If any areas of the house have odors, identify them so that you can deodorize the area.

Once it no longer feels like home- Success 

Seriously though if you are bringing others into your house the purpose is to make it feel open to all who enter and allow them to think that they can turn it into their home. With that goal in focus, if you have any questions or need someone's opinion about if you have staged your house well contact your local real estate agent for help.

When you hear about xeriscaping, you might envision a dirt or sand yard with more boulders than actual greenery and color. You now know about a few ornamental kinds of grass you can use to set off your yard and add greenery. Depriving yourself of flowers is not necessary either to create a beautiful, eco-friendly yard. Here are a few fabulous flowering plants to use in your xeriscape.

African Iris — After it reaches stable growth this beautiful perennial plant only requires occasional water. Enjoy white blossoms with hints of yellow and bluish-purple from Spring all the way through the Fall with minimal maintenance. 

Lantana — An evergreen shrub, Lantana is a fast-growing plant that blooms throughout all seasons in most areas. Even if you live in a climate experiencing frost, your Lantana will produce gorgeous orange and red blossoms during the Spring and Summer months. This plant requires little water once it's up and running if you do experience extreme heat in the summertime, up your watering some to keep your blossoms going year-round. 

Marigold — This vibrant flower is a remarkable and affordable annual to add to your drought-tolerant landscape. It grows quickly, has minimal watering needs and thrives in full sun. The plant is tough enough to survive extreme heat, and the bright orange blossoms bring life to your garden through Summer and Fall. Bonus — if you enjoy butterflies this plant is for you. Turn your xeriscape into a butterfly garden by attracting them with marigold blossoms. 

Bougainvillea — This flowering plant comes in many varieties offering different colors and sizes. Bougainvillea plants proliferate and burst with flowers year-round. You can use them in many ways making them a good option for different home types. They are great for ground cover; you can climb them up a trellis or drape them over your roof or balcony. This plant requires little water and will tell you so! If it stops flowering, you're overwatering it — the perfect flowering plant for drought climates.

Lavender — Brought to us from the Mediterranean lavender is a beautiful and sturdy plant that is fairly drought tolerant. Its toughness and varieties make it an excellent option for adding green to your xeriscape year-round and a splash of purple color through your warm summer months. English lavender grows best in colder northern climates, while French and Spanish lavenders grow best in hot southern environments. Lavender loves sunlight and takes at least 8 hours of direct sunlight per day. Soak your lavender plant to establish its roots then manage with moderate watering and enjoy purple blossoms for several years. 

Purple Sage — Desert purple sage is native to western climates and is very well suited to difficult growing areas with high heat and drought. This evergreen shrub blooms abundantly from Spring through Fall. Delight yourself and your garden with these fast-growing bluish-purple flowers with minimal watering once established.

Wildflowers — Wildflowers are a must add for any garden but are especially useful in your xeriscape. Choose wildflowers native to your area. If you select the right seeds, they will grow well in your high heat and drought-prone environment. Before purchasing make sure you research which wildflowers grow best in your area. If you ensure you spread the right seeds, you'll enjoy a beautiful and complex coloring of wildflowers in your garden.

Now your garden is full and blossoming while remaining eco and wallet-friendly. For more texture and unique coloring to pair with your blooms take a look at some tremendous succulent options for your xeriscape.
