Ready to submit an offer on a house? Not so fast. First, you'll want to consider a few key questions, including:

1. Can I afford to buy a house?

If you find a house you like, make sure you can afford the monthly mortgage payments. By doing so, you may be able to avoid costly, time-consuming problems down the line.

Ultimately, getting pre-approved for a mortgage can make a world of difference, particularly for a homebuyer who is ready to submit an offer on a home.

With pre-approval for a mortgage, a homebuyer will understand exactly how much money is at his or her disposal. As a result, this homebuyer can avoid the temptation to overspend on a house.

2. Should I submit a "lowball" offer?

For many homebuyers, it may seem like a good idea to submit a "lowball" offer on a house. But doing so may be problematic for a number of reasons.

If you submit a lowball proposal, a home seller is unlikely to take your bid seriously. As such, this home seller may dismiss your offer and move on to other proposals quickly.

In addition, a lowball offer may cause you to miss out on the opportunity to acquire your dream residence.

When you locate the perfect residence, there is no need to leave anything to chance. If you submit a fair proposal that meets or exceeds a home seller's expectations, you can avoid the risk of losing your dream house to a rival homebuyer.

3. How much should I offer for a residence?

We've already established that a lowball offer is rarely, if ever, a good idea. Now, you'll just need to determine what differentiates a fair proposal from a lowball one.

A fair proposal accounts for the needs of both a homebuyer and home seller. It should be based on the current state of the housing market as well as the condition of a home.

For instance, if you're operating in a buyer's market, there is likely to be a broad assortment of homes available. This means a home seller may need to lower his or her expectations due to the sheer volume of quality residences currently on the market.

Don't forget to study the prices of recently sold homes in a particular city or town too. This housing market data will help you better understand how a residence you're considering stacks up against comparable houses so you can submit an appropriate offer.

4. Do I need a real estate agent?

A real estate agent will take the guesswork out of buying a home, and for good reason. This real estate professional can help you prepare an offer and will negotiate with a home seller on your behalf. That way, you can streamline the process of going from homebuyer to homeowner.

Hire a real estate agent before you submit an offer on a house Ė you'll be glad you did. A real estate agent will guide you along the homebuying journey and ensure you can secure a great house at a price that fits your budget.

Depending upon where your laundry room is in your home, it may be a breeding ground for plenty of stuff. People leave their shoes in there along with coats, an array of cleaning supplies and other ďjunkĒ piled up in one spot. However and wherever your laundry room is, you can organize it in a few easy steps.


Gather Off Season Items


If you place coats, boots, sandals, hats and gloves in the laundry room, you need bins to keep them organized. Either label bins and put items where they need to be, or get some baskets to sort everything out. Every member of your family can have their own bin for their off-season belongings.


Keep Hampers In The Laundry Room


For easy sorting, label hampers so that clothes are already sorted when you head to do laundry. This will cut down on your laundry time significantly. Each family member will have their own responsibility to bring his or her own clothes to the laundry room and sort them out.


Get A Retractable Clothesline


Since space can be limited in the laundry room, itís hard to find places to hang clothes to dry that arenít able to go in the dryer. If you get a clothesline that will enable you to hang your clothes vertically, youíll save space. 


Clear Counter Space To Fold Clothes


If you have some counter space in the laundry room cleared way and reserved, youíll have more space to be able to fold your clothes. Getting the folding done on the spot is a great idea because then, youíll have less to do when you come out of the laundry room! 


Keep A Wastebasket Near The Washer


Itís inevitable that people will always leave something in their pockets. You donít want tissues and receipts to end up in the wash. As youíre doing laundry, youíll need a place to dispose of these items and a place to get rid of dryer lint and dryer sheets as well. Other items that are found in the laundry that donít belong there should be kept in a separate basket for people to pick up at a later time. 


Install A Shoe Rack


If the laundry room is near an entryway to the home, you need a shoe rack there. People will be taking their shoes off and on, and you donít want shoes strewn throughout the room. You may also want to get a good doormat, one that will pick up mud and dirt, to keep it from spreading throughout the room and the house.


With a few changes, your laundry room can be easily organized. Youíll just need to train your family on how to use the new systems in order to make life a bit easier for you!

It feels like a miracle when the warm weather rolls around and you can finally spend some time outdoors. Whether you're taking a break from yard work or working on your tan, you're going to want a comfortable place to relax. Unfortunately, a lot of outdoor seating is the equivalent of sitting on a hard rock--sure it can withstand the weather, but it doesn't offer much comfort. In this article, we'll talk about some of the best outdoor seating available that will get you outside†without sacrificing the comfort of your recliner.

Hammocks

We don't know exactly when the hammock was invented, but the first written account of their use†comes from Spanish colonists in the 1400s who noticed Native South Americans using them for sleeping. They were originally made from the bark of a hamack tree--hence the name--but since then†have been made of a number of different materials. In the United States, the hammock market has been dominated by, well, the worst type of hammock there is. When you think of a hammock you probably think of white rope hung between two trees with wooden separator bars to keep the netted rope open. Originally, hammocks didn't have those separator bars--and for good reason. Separator bars make for the unsteady, dizzying experience that many people have when they get in a hammock for the first time. Without the bars, you have a much steadier, more comfortable experience that is closer to what Native South Americans have experiences for hundreds of years.

Hanging rope chair

Like the hammock, hanging rope chairs also utilize gravity to add to their comfort level. The difference here is that you are in a seated or semi-reclined position. Rope chairs often have weather-proof seat and back cushions that make them all the more comfortable. You can buy a free-standing chair, or one that hangs from a tree branch.

Floating lounge chairs

If you want to bring your comfort on-the-go, a lounge chair is one of your best options. Lounge chairs have undergone several innovations over the years--some for better, some for worse. Quality lounge chairs make sure your back and seat cushion aren't touching any parts of the metal frame. One good example is the Cabela's zero-gravity lounge chair. They fold up easily and are very comfortable, but they are significantly heavier than cheaper, aluminum framed lounge chairs.

Cushioned furniture set

If you plan on entertaining guests on the patio, there are several outdoor furniture sets that have thick, durable cushions to keep everyone comfortable. You can spend anywhere from a couple hundred dollars to thousands of dollars on a patio set. And, more than anything else on this list, you get what you pay for. Maintaining a patio set is more complicated than the other items we've mentioned. Some have removable cushions that you should bring inside at night or when it rains. Others come with furniture covers that will keep the chairs in prime conditions but are--admittedly--an eyesore.   Whichever options you choose, be sure to try before you buy. When you're shopping for comfort, no one can tell you better than your own back.
