Because you know how much time, energy and money it takes to buy, move into and furnish a house, you're more than ready to buy one or more great gifts for relatives or friends who are about to become new homeowners. You've even offered to help your friends pack at their current home and unpack at their new house.

Ideas that could help you find the right gifts for new homeowners

If only you could think of a great gift to give the new homeowners. If this is the first time that your relatives or friends have moved out and lived on their own, deciding on what to get them could be easy, as they might not have any appliances, linen or furniture.

It could be tougher to choose a great gift if your friends or relatives have been living on their own for awhile and are moving from an apartment to a house. Even if the new homeowners have lived in an apartment for one or more years, they may love receiving these gifts:

  • Family size washer and dryer - Apartment dwellers may have a washer and dryer, but not floor size laundry appliances. They'll appreciate being able to load enough clothes into a washer and dryer to go from washing clothes two or more times a week to only washing laundry once a week.
  • Dishwasher - Go for this gift only if you know that the homeowners will use the appliance. Everyone doesn't use a dishwasher, some people opting to wash and dry dishes and pots and pans by hand.
  • Dinette set - A dinette set is a great gift for new homeowners because this furniture can be used to dine with. A dinette set can also be used as furniture to accommodate guests. Chairs at the dinette set can also serve as makeshift living room furniture until the new homeowners get a sofa and chair.
  • Pots and pans - Stainless steel pots and pans can last years, even if the homeowners are avid cooks.
  • Lamps - Decorative lamps work well in so many rooms, including a living room, den, finished basement, attic and in a bedroom.
  • Window treatments - Visit the new homeowners' place before you get window treatments. Blinds and shades are safe gifts, because homeowners can always hang drapes or curtains over blinds and shades.
  • Towels - A set of six towels can give new homeowners enough bathroom linen to wash with for several weeks.
  • Vacuum cleaner - It might not sound like an attractive gift, but a vacuum cleaner is one of the more frequently used appliances in a home.

Get the new homeowners in your life great gifts and you'll leave a lasting impression. You can help to put your friends or relatives closer to being truly independent as they move into their own place. Don't be surprised to see your gifts in your loved ones homes months, perhaps years, after they move into their new house.

Lead generation skills aren't the only advantage that a real estate agent can bring to your house selling partnership. Established relationships with online and offline marketing professionals and real estate bankers are another plus that areal estate agent brings to the table.

Stop wasting time, work with an experienced real estate agent to get your house of the market

Real estate agents are well versed in mortgage negotiations. Although reputable agents don't cross sell to bankers to get more commissions and side deals, they know who the top lenders are. Highly experienced lenders know which financial institutions are the most solvent.

You won't have to guess about which documents you need to complete the closing process, pay for house listings and marketing efforts. A real estate agent will make the time to walk you through the house marketing, house staging, open house and buyer negotiation steps.

They know the competitive house prices in areas where you are most interested in buying a house. Pricing your house smartly is just one benefit that this knowledge offers. Access to data to know the range of prices to offer on a new house is a second benefit that competitive pricing information that you get from a real estate agent gains you.

Three key ways that a realtor can get your house off the market

As great as those advantages are, they aren't the only major ways that a real estate agent can help sell your house faster. Here are three key ways that a realtor can get your house off the market fast:

  • Instant reports on other houses that are for sale near your house (With this instant access not only will you know how to price your house, you'll also know how many other houses are on the market in the area.)
  • Hands on advice on what you need to do to stage your house without having to move out while prospects walk through your home (For example, a real estate agent can tell you which house wall colors help houses to sale faster.)
  • Ability to work with other realtors to help market your house (Another realtor that your agent knows might know house hunters who are looking for a house just like yours.)

Selling your house fast isn't the only benefit that partnering with a real estate agent gives

Getting your house off the market fast is the difference between you yielding a profit from the sale of your house and being forced to sale your house at a loss. You could sale your house on your own, giving yourself the chance to keep the commissions that you would have to pay a real estate agent.

But, you'd lose access to databases, research information and established relationships with lenders and other realtors, the very relationships that can help you price your house right the first time. You'd also forfeit the chance to search for another house that meets your changing dwelling needs.
