New place, new town, new everything. Now, where to find the grocery store and the parks. Additionally, think about all those places you will have to visit at least once to complete your move like the DMV and school district administration offices. Your map app on your phone can get you places but are they the places with precisely what you want and the quality you expect? That is where you need the insider's perspective to get the scoop on your new neighborhood. 

Not Your Momís Phone Book

Researching online can give you current reviews from actual customers and some insight into the services you are wanting. Chamber of Commerce website or the Better Business Bureau are also resources to use. What can help you is talking to people like your neighbors. If you are a pet owner, you can strike up a conversation with someone you see waking their dog about who they recommend for grooming services, pet supplies or even veterinarian services. 

Social Networking 

Maybe your online social network has connections in your new area, and they can direct you. Leverage any social clubs or civic groups you are part of, like college alumni or professional associations. You will be surprised how helpful having a network of people to ask can be. Everyone seems to have their favorite coffee place or corner bakery so don't be shy about asking for recommendations. 

People All Around You

New coworkers and your children's schoolmates and their families are excellent resources for discovering things about your new locale. Since you will be spending a goodly amount of time together, it should be relativity easy to ask about services like auto repair and maintenance or lawn care. You can get the scoop on the best pizza in town and where to go to get a deal on furniture. People you interact with during your day are easily accessible and an excellent source for insider information. While grabbing a bite to eat, ask your server about local entertainment or personal services. It helps to keep a list of any recommendations you receive, so you don't forget. You surely do not want to miss any sweet local places that may become your new favorite place to frequent. Moving is stressful enough, no need to blindly stumbling through services and products in your new neighborhood. Go ahead and make that personal connection, that will not only get you what you need but will help you quickly become part of the new community. 

Ask your realtor for their recommendations for living in your new neighborhood.

When youíre trying to sell your home, there are a few mistakes that could make or break completing the sale of the home in a timely manner. While some things like a tough market or a home with a lot of extra-special features are out of your immediate control, there are plenty of things that you can do when it comes to selling your home. Read on for expert selling tips on what to avoid when your home is going on the market.


Your Home Is Overpriced


Overpriced homes tend to sit on the market for a longer period of time. This is because buyers can see that the price isnít right and are waiting for a price drop. Itís so easy to overestimate the value of your home as well. 


When a home sits on the market for a longer period of time, buyers also wonder if thereís something wrong with the home. Was there a botched inspection? Does the home need major work thatís not visible to the naked eye? An idle home sale leaves buyers wondering, and your home still left on the market.


As far as price goes, if your home has been sitting on the market, youíll need to consider dropping the price in a timely fashion if the price isnít right. You also should be open to bargaining with buyers. In the grand scheme of selling a home sometimes being stubborn with $5,000 doesnít pay off in the end. 


You Didnít Clean Before A Showing


When your home goes on the market, youíll need to do a deep clean of the home. This could mean shelling out some money for a professional cleaning service. Buyers want to see homes that are in pretty good condition. Itís hard to picture living in a place where thereís a lot of dirt and clutter. If you need to, put some of your stuff in storage for the showing. Buyers need some vision to help them decide on the home thatís right for them. You can help them to find that vision with a spotless house.


Using Subpar Photographs


When it comes to selling your home, you want the best possible photographs to depict your property. Most home buyers start their search online these days and high-quality photographs are the best first impression of your property that you can give. A few cell phone pictures just wonít cut it. If you canít get professional photographs done to sell your home, you might want to find someone with a more professional camera or a bit of amateur photography skills. Buyers are focusing on the pictures way more than they are the words in descriptions for online listings. Find the best way to give buyers an overview of your property in images with a good impression.
