After you receive an offer to purchase your residence, determining the best course of action often can be difficult. Because if you make the wrong decision, you risk missing out on an opportunity to sell your house and maximize its value.

Ultimately, it may prove to be beneficial for a home seller to submit a counter-offer. There are many reasons why a seller may choose to provide a counter-proposal, and these include:

1. A homebuyer's initial offer to purchase fails to match your expectations.

Although a homebuyer's initial offer to purchase your residence fell below your expectations, you can always submit a counter-offer to find out if a buyer is negotiable. That way, you may be able to work with a buyer to find a common price that is suitable for all parties.

When it comes to selling a house, there is no harm in submitting a counter-offer. Remember, the worst response a home seller will receive to a counter-proposal is a simple "No." And even in the worst-case scenario, a seller can move forward with the property selling journey and await an offer to purchase that matches his or her expectations.

2. You are flexible about the price of your house.

As a home seller, you probably realize that what you originally paid for your house is unlikely to match your residence's current value. But even if you set a competitive initial asking price for your home, you may still want to negotiate a counter-offer if a buyer's initial proposal falls short.

The housing market constantly fluctuates, and a sector that favors sellers today may favor buyers tomorrow. Thus, if you are flexible about the price of your house, you can always negotiate a price with a buyer that accounts for the present state of the real estate sector.

3. You want to get the best-possible price for your residence.

The goal of the home selling journey is to obtain the best price for your home, regardless of the real estate market's conditions. Therefore, rather than accept or reject an offer to purchase, it may be beneficial to see if you can receive a better proposal from a buyer.

As you move along the home selling journey and review an offer to purchase, you should not hesitate to collaborate with a real estate agent. With a real estate agent at your side, you can receive plenty of guidance throughout the home selling journey.

Typically, a real estate agent will help you list your residence and promote it to prospective buyers. He or she will set up home showings and open house events and keep you up to date about any offers to purchase your residence. Then, when you receive an offer to purchase, you and your real estate agent can work together to determine how to proceed.

Hire a real estate agent – you'll be glad you did. By employing a real estate agent, you can get the help you need to fully analyze an offer to purchase your residence.


No homeowner ever wishes to have to deal with certain emergencies at home, but in the off chance that you happen to face any of these common ones, there's no need to fret. Just follow these instructions, and you may be surprised at how well you handled the situation.

1. Leaking Roof

While you call a professional roof repairer, try to locate the source of the leak, and use a bucket to collect the water. Next, move all electrical appliances that are close by, and also switch off all the general power outlets until repairs are complete. You should also move furniture and soft furnishings out of the way to avoid permanent damage to them. If they are too heavy, you should cover them with plastic sheeting or heavy towels. Remember to ask the roof repairer for an assessment of the general condition of the roof to prevent future leaks.

2. Burst Pipes

Two significant signs of a burst pipe are an unwanted pool of water or a trickling sound that appears to come from within a wall cavity. If you notice this, first move all electrical items safely out of harm’s way. Then do what you can to stop the water supply to the entire home, then switch on both your cold and hot water taps. Drain them completely so that no more water comes out. Speak to a plumber and relay the location of the puddle or dripping water and information on whatever steps you've taken. You will get instructions over the phone about any further steps to take. But most likely you'll need a professional visit. 

3. Blocked Toilet

A clogged toilet definitely is one of the most dreaded household emergencies. While there are many likely causes for a blocked toilet such as foreign objects or children’s toys, poo is the most likely culprit. Having a sturdy plunger on hand will prove to be most helpful, as in most cases, drawing up the blockage is the best way to budge it. If that doesn’t seem to get the job done, find an old mop stick that you can use to wedge down into the bowl and try to dislodge the blockage. If neither of these tactics works, then it’s time to call in the cavalry—a licensed plumber. Meanwhile, on the off chance that you need to use the toilet before it's fixed, you might have to visit the neighbors you have been friendly to throughout the year.

Knowing what to do is essential to dealing with emergencies, and these are simple steps that anyone can follow.
