Let's face it – selling your home is no simple task. As such, you'll want to find a real estate agent who can guide you through the home selling process and ensure that you're able to maximize the value of your residence. Ultimately, there are many reasons to find a real estate agent to help you sell your residence, including: 1. Industry Experience A real estate agent will possess comprehensive industry experience that makes him or her exceedingly valuable. This professional understands the ins and outs of the real estate sector and will be able to assist you in several areas. From determining the best price for your home to offering home improvement tips, a real estate agent knows what it takes to sell a residence in any real estate market, at any time. 2. Local Knowledge Selling a home in a big city can be very different from selling one in a small town. Fortunately, a real estate often recognizes the key attributes of selling a home in a specific area and will work with you to find interested homebuyers consistently. The local knowledge that a real estate agent possesses can make him or her a great resource, particularly for home sellers who are hoping for a fast sale. This professional will work with you throughout the home selling process, and ultimately, ensure that you are fully satisfied with the end results. 3. Expert Negotiation Skills A real estate agent represents you throughout the home selling process and will operate as a liaison between you and a homebuyer. That way, if a homebuyer wants to negotiate for a better price for your residence, your real estate agent can serve as a facilitator who can help you get the best price for your home. Negotiating can be a stressful, exhausting experience, particularly for home sellers who are offering their residences to homebuyers for the first time. Thankfully, your real estate agent will help you streamline any negotiations with a homebuyer. 4. Friendly, Professional Approach A real estate agent understands that the process of selling a home is rarely simple and is happy to respond to your concerns and questions at any time. Typically, a real estate agent will keep you up to date as he or she tries to find homebuyers. This professional will take a friendly, professional approach to promoting your home to a wide range of prospective homebuyers, hosting open houses and home showings and ensuring that you get the attention you deserve while you try to sell your home. With the right real estate agent to help you sell your residence, you can enjoy a stress-free journey through the home selling process – one that is likely to conclude with a home sale that satisfies your needs. Choose the right real estate agent as you prepare to add your home to the real estate market. By doing so, you can take the guesswork out of promoting your home to the right homebuyers and increase your chances of a quick sale.

Having lived in several tiny apartments, I know firsthand the struggle of having a cluttered bedroom. The bedroom is the room of your home you'll probably spend the most time in. You sleep there, get dressed there, and it's where you go to unwind before bed. It also houses some large furniture items: your bed, your clothing storage, and maybe even a desk or television. However, there are ways to declutter your bedroom to make it feel more minimal, open, and spacious. In this article, we'll go over some of the ways you can arrange, paint, and decorate your bedroom to create space and build a more open and comfortable environment.

1. Colors are important

Interior decorators will tell you all about the need for light colors to make a room feel spacious. We naturally associate darkness with closed spaces--a shady patch of wood, a dark cave--whereas bright spaces tend to be much more spacious--a sprawling field or open body of water. To emulate this openness indoors, decorate your home like you would find in a field. Keep the darker colors lower to the ground like the dirt and grass in a field, and the lighter colors up higher on the walls and ceiling, like the sky above.

2. Mirrors make a difference

Most people know about the mirror trick to adding space in a room. However, the location and size of the mirror also matter. One tiny mirror in the corner of a room won't make much of a difference. However, grouping mirrors together, especially vertically from floor to ceiling, will make the bed room appear much larger, plus you'll be able to use the mirrors while getting dressed in the morning.

3. Use storage furniture

A bed frame, desk, or ottoman with storage space will allow you to keep objects out of sight and help declutter the room. For best results, use furniture items that are light in color or paint them a slightly different shade of the color of your walls.

4. Modular furniture

Modular furniture is minimal and can be built to fit your needs. With modular furniture you won't ever have more drawers in your dresser than you need. If you want a desk in your bedroom, you can buy a fold-up wall mounted desk that helps clear up room when not in use.

5. Store inside, not on top

Bedrooms tend to accumulate a lot of clutter. Before I got rid of my bedside table it was usually covered with any range of items--keys, water bottle, opened mail, pens, etc. However, now that I store everything in a bedroom drawer, I don't have to worry about those items being visible and making the room feel cluttered.

6. Ditch the big bed

Mattresses and bed frames have come a long way in recent years when it comes to minimalism. Since your bed is probably the largest item in your bedroom, it is the most important item to change if you really want to make the room more spacious. The obvious solution is to buy a smaller sized bed. However, if that isn't an option there are also many slim mattresses and bed frames with a sleek, minimalist look.
