After you add your house to the real estate market, it may be only a matter of days before you receive the first offer on your residence.

Ultimately, the initial offer on your home may prove to be the best proposal for a number of reasons, including:

1. The offer matches or exceeds your expectations.

An informed home seller understands the condition of his or her house, and as such, sets realistic expectations for the home selling journey.

For a home seller, it is paramount to conduct a home appraisal before you list your residence. With this appraisal, you can learn about your residence's strengths and weaknesses and price your house accordingly.

Furthermore, a home appraisal will help you understand the true value of your home. And if you receive an initial offer that matches or surpasses your expectations, you should have no trouble accepting the proposal and moving forward with a home sale.

2. The offer corresponds to the current state of the real estate market.

Operating in a buyer's market is far different from operating in a seller's market, and perhaps it is easy to understand why.

In a buyer's market, there is an abundance of high-quality houses and a shortage of property buyers. This means a buyer's market typically favors property buyers over property sellers.

On the other hand, a seller's market usually favors property sellers. This market includes many property buyers and a shortage of top-notch houses. Thus, the likelihood of receiving a terrific first offer may increase in a seller's market and decrease in a buyer's market.

As a home seller, it is essential to allocate the necessary time and resources to learn about the housing market. If you understand the differences between a buyer's market and a seller's market, you can identify a great initial offer on your house.

3. The offer is a must-accept in the eyes of your real estate agent.

When it comes to selling a house, it often is a wonderful idea to work with a real estate agent. In fact, this housing market professional may prove to be a difference-maker at each stage of the home selling journey.

A real estate agent will help you list your residence, promote it to potential homebuyers and set up home showings and open houses. That way, he or she can make it easy for you to generate substantial interest in your residence as soon as it becomes available.

Perhaps most important, a real estate agent is happy to provide honest, unbiased home selling recommendations. This housing market professional will help you differentiate between a mediocre initial offer and a stellar one and ensure you can make informed home selling decisions.

Lastly, be sure to analyze the initial offer on your home closely before you accept it. By taking a diligent approach to this home proposal, you can evaluate the pros and cons of it and make the best possible decision based on your individual needs.

An entryway is the first room you enter when coming home and the first to welcome guests. Many couples have a grand entryway at the top of their wishlist when buying a new home. Make yours count with upscale upgrades that wonít break the bank. Here are my tips for creating a high-end entryway no matter the size of your budget:

Paint vent covers a new color and/or finish. This is a great subtle way to add a touch of luxury to your entryway. You can find spray paint in every tone and finish possible to match the rest of the hardware in your hall. Be sure to allow it to dry well before putting them back in place. Alternatively, you can swap out a plain grill for one with more decorative detail.

Add decorative brackets tucked against the tread on the side of your stairs for a unique handcrafted millwork detail. Paint and or stain them to match the original woodwork. This will give your home a touch of upscale elegance visitors will fawn over. If your stairs are painted consider giving them a fresh coat of paint while working on this project for a clean new feel.

Add frames to your light switch plates and paint them to match. Luxury is all about the details, quite literally. This is a quick project with big impact. Consider hunting around antique shops for a vintage option. Donít feel you have to paint them stark white. Try a deep brown or a creme color for your plates.

Create faux baseboards along bare walls with molding. You can even create a wood-paneled look by installing molding along the halfway point of your wall and painting the area down to the baseboards all of the same color. Install molding fitted into rectangular frames along this space for a more detailed look.

Update your entryways light fixture to a piece that is more upscale and elegant. Replace flush mount light fixtures with a chandelier or pendant light that is just as stunning as it is functional. Afterall, good lighting is key to an entryway that wows.    

Add new life to your entryway with a fresh coat of paint. Rich, deep colors and neutrals feel high-end and luxurious. This is a great room to choose two colors for - one for the top half of walls and another for the bottom half. This is another way to create a unique and interesting room without installing paneling.

Bring in a runner or carpet to add a layer of depth and luxury to your entryway. While oriental style carpeting is a classic donít be afraid to choose a pattern you love. Again, neutrals will guarantee a high end feel to the room. With that said rich, warm colors can feel chic and glamorous.
