Generally, a closet ought to bring simplicity to your life. Whether it's a large walk-in or an itty-bitty space, a neat closet should be where you can get the things you need any time of the day. However, keeping a closet neat and organized can be more complicated than it seems. One day you have a clean closet that makes you hum James Brown's "I feel good." The next day the closet looks like a sharp gust of wind swept through it. No worries. Erase your closet headaches with these excellent tips.


Remove What You Don’t Need

Take your time to go through every single item in your closet, and discard anything you have not worn in a year or so. You could always donate to your local shelters or clothing drives visiting your community.

Save with Hanging Organizers

If there is no space for shelves or a dresser in your closet, try using hanging organizers to save more space. They are inexpensive and will provide an ideal place to put your folded clothes.

Hang Items on the Inside of the Door

For those that don't have sliding doors, you can add hooks to the inside of your closet door to hang items like scarves, handbags, and jewelry.

Store Out-of-Season Items

If you live in an area that is particular to season changes, storing your clothing from the prior season could free up some of your space. Check for any out-of-season clothes and neatly fold them into a bin or utilize space-saving bags to keep any critters, dust or unwanted things from getting to them. Bin's and saver bags are easy to stack and can fit neatly under your bed or in a corner in your closet.

Add a Light

Some closets come with light, while others may not. If your closet does not have a light fixture, you could easily add one. You may wish to use a preexisting light feature from another area of your home, such as free-standing lamp, or simply use a wall-mounted lamp to give your closet a little more illumination. If you opt for in-depth installation, there are a few key points to remember when it comes to choosing your bulb, such as halogen lights not typically being suitable for small, enclosed spaces due to the heat they give off. Instead, make use of fluorescent or LED options. They're energy efficient and give off minimal heat. Being able to see your things will help you keep them in order.

Store Your Shoes Elsewhere

If your closet has limited floor space, you can store your shoes in a bin under your bed, or in an over-the-door, hanging organizer on your closet or bedroom door. Both are relatively inexpensive and save a tremendous amount of space. If you prefer to do it yourself, there are ample ideas to search for such as recycled PVC shoe holders or repurposing old display furniture, like bookshelves.

Follow these simple tips, and you could save endless amounts of space in your closet. You can then use your well-designed closet as a great home feature to entice new buyers. Talk to your real estate agent about the most popular closet layouts and how to set yours up for an open house.

Selling a home is a big decision with far-flung ramifications. If you're on the fence about selling your house, there is no need to wait. In fact, there are many reasons why now may be the right time to list your residence, and these include:

1. You can upgrade or downgrade.

Although your current home has served you well for many years, now may be a good time for a change. Fortunately, you can sell your residence and move into a bigger or smaller home that will suit you perfectly.

It often won't take long to transition from one home to another. In many instances, individuals simultaneously sell their current house and search for a new home. This generally enables an individual to seamlessly relocate from his or her current house to a bigger or smaller residence.

2. You can move closer to family members and friends.

If you find your current home is far away from family members and friends, don't stress. For those who sell a home, it may be only a matter of time before you can enjoy convenient access to loved ones.

By selling your current home, you can explore houses in cities and towns where your loved ones reside. Then, if you purchase a house close to family members and friends, you can visit these loved ones without having to worry about a long commute.

3. You can receive plenty of support throughout the home selling journey.

Listing a home may seem virtually impossible, particularly for someone who previously has never embarked on the property selling journey. Lucky for you, help is available to ensure you can quickly and effortlessly sell your home and maximize its value.

Working with a real estate agent typically is a good idea for first-time and experienced home sellers alike. With a real estate agent at your side, you can get the assistance you need to achieve your property selling goals.

A real estate agent understands the assorted pitfalls that a home seller may encounter. As such, he or she works with a home seller to help this individual address potential problems before they escalate. A real estate agent will collaborate with a property seller to craft a house selling strategy. Next, a real estate agent will put this plan into action and do everything possible to promote a house to prospective buyers. And if a seller receives an offer to purchase, a real estate agent will help this individual review his or her options and determine how to proceed.

In addition, a real estate agent provides a housing market resource unlike any other. He or she is available to respond to a seller's concerns and questions. Plus, a real estate agent is happy to provide home selling recommendations.

Take the guesswork out of selling your home – hire a real estate agent, and you can receive extensive support as you navigate the property selling journey.

In a bid to afford homes in high-value areas, many homeowners turn to income from short-term rentals to cover a high mortgage payment. You can benefit from this option with some caveats:

  • Location really matters. A lot. You might advertise your home as near the coast when it’s really 20 miles inland and get a few bites. But eventually, the reviews catch up with you, and you lose out. Be honest about where your rental sits. Market what is available: access to public transportation, quiet parks, sports arenas, theme parks, etc. only if they truly are accessible.
  • Consider hosting rather than leaving your home to strangers. That means you stay on the property while they are there. You’re in control of who comes and goes. Your renters can’t sneak in a dozen of their buddies without paying for them.
  • Make sure your HOA and municipality allow it. Many homeowners associations explicitly forbid subletting or short-term rentals, so if that’s your plan, read those pesky covenants, conditions and restrictions (CCR’s) before you buy. Municipalities also have codes regarding hospitality properties. Many require licenses, permits or fees, and some require occupancy taxes on the nights guests rent your home.
  • Your homeowners’ insurance coverage may not protect you from damage or liability when you’re using your home as a business. Talk to your insurance agent before you post your home online and pay the extra premiums to make certain you’re covered.

Before you decide to turn your home into a short-term rental, know the rules and the risks or the rewards may not be worth the trouble. Your real estate professional is your best resource for discovering properties in your area suitable for a short-term rental, so make that phone call today.
