If you're considering putting your house on the market, the job of helping you find a qualified buyer is an important one. The real estate agent you choose to market your home, schedule appointments, and provide you with day-to-day guidance will play a crucial role in the outcome of your sale.

In addition to picking an agent who has a successful track record of selling houses similar to yours, their overall attitude, communication style, and energy level can provide you with valuable insights into whether they're up to the challenge.

Here are three of the top reasons that a positive attitude is an indispensable quality in a real estate agent.

  1. When prospective buyers and agents tour your home, they will be influenced by several factors. While their main focus will be on the look and feel of your home, their opinions will also be swayed by your agent's presentation style. Your real estate professional should have a knack for helping prospects focus on the desirable aspects of a home, while downplaying its negative features. Although issues and potential problems with a property usually need to be acknowledged, a resourceful real estate agent will make sure the problem is kept in its proper perspective, rather than blown out of proportion. They'll also do their best to suggest cost-effective solutions. To the extent that it's possible and practical, a good agent will help prospective buyers imagine how much they'd enjoy moving into the house, customizing it to their personal preferences, and making the space their own. People will quickly pick up on the enthusiasm and attitude of your real estate agent, and will be consciously and unconsciously influenced by their verbal and nonverbal messages. Most, if not all, buyers will be quick to detect everything from authenticity and sincerity to indifference and lethargy in an agent. These traits should also be obvious to you when you're interviewing agents during the selection process.
  2. An optimistic, results-oriented real estate agent will tend to be more resourceful, proactive, and solution-oriented that one who focuses more on problems than solutions.
  3. Both enthusiasm and negativity are contagious, so your agent's attitude will have a direct impact on your own outlook. Since your responsibility as the seller is to keep your home and property looking its best at all times, discouragement and a loss of optimism can easily spill over into noticeable details like home cleanliness and staging.

Choosing a great real estate agent can potentially translate into a higher sale price and a shorter period of time that your home will be on the market. Since thousands of dollars are at stake, it makes good financial sense to pick an agent who possesses the necessary people skills, the relevant knowledge, and the professional expertise to bring you the best possible return on the sale of your property.

When you have an extra bedroom, you should take advantage of it to the full extent. All of the extra space can actually be kind of overwhelming. If you have a plan in mind, your extra bedroom can be so much more than a “spare” room. Here’s some ideas to help you jumpstart your imagination on what to do with an extra bedroom in your home. The great thing about these suggestions is that these rooms can be used day or night for specific purposes. Spa This sounds extravagant to have an in-home spa, but really, it’s possible. If you often hire professionals to give you a massage or a facial, many will actually come to your home. Your extra bedroom can become your private spa room in an instant! Thinking Room The health benefits of meditation are numerous. Having a room that can be a sanctuary for clearing your head, meditating, or just simply making decisions is a great use of an extra bedroom. There will be no other room in your home as quiet and as peaceful! Keep your favorite comfortable chair in there and enjoy the silence and solitude for clear thinking. Reading Room Having a reading room in your home is a classic use of an extra bedroom. If one of your ideas of pleasure is to sit quietly and read, a reading room can be the perfect sanctuary for you. The beauty of a reading room is that the furnishings can be very simple. All you need is simple seating and adequate lighting for a great reading room. A Room For Morning Routines Whether your morning routine is a workout, or simply reading the news with a cup of coffee, having a room to start your day off right is the perfect use of an extra bedroom. Being able to get through your morning routine without any interruptions can help you to set the mood for a great day. You’ll have plenty of room for what you need, be it workout equipment, or a set of a table and chairs. A Toy and Games Room Even adults need some time to have fun. Whether you keep a bunch of board games in this room, install a poker table, or buy some classic arcade games the possibilities are endless when it comes to building a fun room. If you have kids, and don’t have the heart to make an “adults only” room, an extra bedroom can be put to great use if you need a place to store toys and other “kid” things. This can help keep your house a bit neater when the toys are contained. Music Room If there’s a musician or two in the family, a spare room can be put to good use for making music. All of the equipment and supplies can accumulate in the house. Now, there will be a room to keep all of it in. Make sure there’s adequate seating for guests and plenty of outlets available for the musicians to plug in speakers and amplifiers.
