When is the best time to sell your home?
This frequently asked question cannot be answered with a simple or general answer. Every real estate market is different; therefore, the best time to sell a home actually depends on the homeowner's need or desire to sell.
Since every home seller's situation is different, you should discuss the timing of your home sale with a competent Realtor like the ones here at PeggysPath.com.
In some cases, concerning the time of year, selling a home during the fall and winter months may be better than waiting until the spring real estate market. This is due to many factors, including less product competition, and serious buyers are always looking to purchase.
What steps to prepare a home for sale?
Not properly preparing a home for sale can put
a homeowner at a huge disadvantage.
The expression “You never get a second chance to make a first impression” is absolutely true when it comes to selling a home. Before listing a home, you must be sure that your home presents itself in the best possible light. Making sure clutter is at a minimum, freshly painting rooms, installing new carpeting, or ensuring odors are non-existent are just a handful of things to be done before listing a home for sale.
What to disclose to potential buyers?
When selling a home, you must disclose anything you are aware of in your home to potential buyers. Nobody likes “getting the raw end of a deal” when buying a home, or anything for that matter. If you’re aware of defects with the roof, an appliance, or the home in general, you’re always going to be better off being honest and upfront. If you’re aware of defects, fixing them before going on the market is best whenever possible. This can avoid potential issues and/or lawsuits once your home is under contract, after inspections, and even years after you have sold your home.
Do you price sales higher for negotiations?
This frequently asked question often leads to a common pricing mistake that sellers make. Many sellers believe they should price their home $5,000 or more higher than what a good Realtor suggests leaving room for negotiations and low-ball offers. A well-priced home will sell quickly and will sell for close to the listing price. There is no need to leave room for negotiations, as today’s home buyers are very well educated. A seller who prices their home high to leave room for negotiations can actually be costing themselves more money than if they price it to reflect the suggested market value.
How should you respond to low-ball offers?
When selling a home, it’s best to think of any decision as a business decision rather than an emotional one. Low ball offers still happen, unfortunately. Low-Ball offers can sometimes lead to the sale if handled properly. The worse decision you can make is not responding. Some homeowners are so upset they decide they do not want to respond to a low-ball offer, which ultimately ends any potential chance for a deal. Even if it’s close to the list price, a counteroffer is better than letting a potential buyer walk!

Every individual's need for life insurance protection increases as we move toward retirement age. The cost of an uninsured death, medical problems, or long-term care can wipe out assets that have taken years to accumulate.
Beyond risk avoidance and reduction, little people can do to shelter themselves from diseases and accidents, even less from aging.
A good insurance program provides a cost-effective way to deflect the financial consequences of potential losses.
There is an urgency to discuss life insurance protection for the young, the in-between, and the older. Young adults will find there are incredibly affordable plans available. The cost for protection is more affordable when under the age of 30 and can last your lifetime. Why wait until something far worse than CoronaVirtus to rear its ugly head and discover you are not protected.
Yes, it is said the older you get, the wiser you get. Well, that is as far from the truth as it gets when referring to life insurance protection. Think about it, the older you get, the more health issues you may develop, now you have age and health against you. Then, the more you will wish you had prepared yourself earlier. Don't be like the old school world. Ask someone age 50 and over what they wish they had done!
Get yourself and your family adequately insured and prepared for the future. Don't just live day to day, having your family scraping and begging for help to care for a loved one. GoFund is not an insurance policy and will become less and less dependable to collect needed funds for your family members and friends' burials.
Life insurance protection of today's world offers both Living Benefits and Death Benefits. Policies now can provide tax shelter and cash accumulation benefits more lucrative than any savings account you have.
Considering life protection is smart thinking and a way not just to make money and accumulate debts but also to build wealth and create an estate and a legacy for your family, for many generations to come.

How to turn a spare bedroom or extra space
into bonus Income!
Here at PeggysPath.com, we validate that Airbnb is a welcoming experience to Los Angeles, especially to many South Central. Since CoronaVirtus Covaid-19 turned our worlds upside down, you must be much more careful today, but it can still work if you need help.
More and more,
people are still deciding to list their homes on Airbnb to make extra income simply by giving someone a place to hang their hat
at significant savings.
What’s still great about Airbnb is that hosts remain in full control of their property. Each host creates their own profiles for their subject property, choose their own pricing, availability, and guidelines for visiting guests.
Guests can search for lodgings with a host, whether it’s a room, an entire home, or a unique accommodation. Both hosts and guests confirm travel dates, expectations, and pay through Airbnb. Altogether, it makes an experience where people learn new things about each other and create many memorable experiences.
“Hosts in Los Angeles can typically make anywhere from $9,000 and up depending on how often they host—and that’s real money that can help make ends meet.
We’re talking about earning money to help pay for groceries, make home repairs, offset rent [and] even saving for college tuition.”
“Just about 33% of hosts in Los Angeles have disclosed that the income they earn from home sharing has helped them avoid foreclosure or eviction, and that’s a significant impact.”
Airbnb has greatly contributed to the South Los Angeles area, becoming one of the fastest-growing city areas. Its demographics, along with its rich culture, growing business opportunities, and expo line access, make this area an excellent candidate for Airbnb business.
Economic empowerment opportunities are great, and many locals are still taking advantage of personalized services.
In a growingly divisive world, this company has turned that tide in a more positive direction. Airbnb is about creating a community where everyone benefits from each other— a sharing economy. The “bed and breakfast” concept.
“Airbnb has allowed people to turn what’s typically their greatest expense, which is their home, whether you are paying rent or mortgage, into an actual economic engine.”
“About Ninety-Seven percent of the money that hosts charge for booking stays with the host—they’re able to keep that money and what that really means is that money stimulates the local economy, small businesses and overall, it’s a win-win for any community.”
