Real estate market data is readily available to home sellers across the United States. With this information at your disposal, you should have no trouble maximizing the profits from your home sale.
Now, let's take a look at three real estate market data that every home seller needs to check out before listing a residence.
1. Prices of Comparable Houses
Let's face it – determining a competitive price for your house may prove to be difficult, regardless of your home's age or condition. Fortunately, if you analyze the prices of comparable residences in your city or town, you can better understand how your house stacks up against the competition and price it appropriately.
Furthermore, it may be beneficial to conduct a home appraisal prior to listing your house. This appraisal enables a home expert to assess your house both inside and out. Then, you'll receive an appraisal report that contains a property valuation, which may help you determine a competitive price for your house.
2. Prices of Recently Sold Houses
Are you preparing to enter a buyer's or seller's market? Review the prices of recently sold houses in your area, and you can find out whether the current housing market favors buyers or sellers.
If home sellers are receiving offers at or above their initial home asking prices, now may be an ideal time to list your residence. Thus, you may want to add your house to the real estate market sooner rather than later to capitalize on a housing sector that likely favors sellers.
Conversely, if home sellers are receiving offers below their initial home asking prices, you may want to allocate significant time and resources to find ways to improve your house. Because if you enhance your house's exterior and interior, you may be able to help your house stand out from the competition and increase the likelihood of a profitable home sale.
3. Average Amount of Time That a House Is Listed
Check out how long houses stay on the real estate market before they are sold – you'll be glad you did. With this housing market data in hand, you can assess the pulse of the real estate market and map out your home selling journey accordingly.
If you need help collecting or analyzing real estate market data, there is no need to worry. Hire a real estate agent today, and you can gain the insights that you need to make informed decisions throughout the home selling journey.
A real estate agent is a housing market expert who is happy to help you in any way possible. He or she will provide recommendations about how to price your house and improve your home's interior and exterior. Plus, a real estate agent is available to respond to any of your home selling concerns or questions, at any time.

When you have a garden, it is important to have a good watering system. If you are looking to have the best garden maintenance that you can, then drip irrigation systems are a nice choice to consider.
How It Works
Drip irrigation works by slowly applying water directly to the plant. It consists of placing tubes in a row near the stems of the plants with a tiny drip valve between the stems. The water flows, drop by drop, through the tubing continuously or for a limited time, depending on the programming. There are two ways to place the tubes, buried slightly or placed on top of the soil.
Thanks to this irrigation mechanism, you can reduce the water waste compared to the more conventional methods. Here are a few of the benefits that come with using a drip irrigation system:
1. Effective Irrigation
Manual irrigation may miss the most vital part of the plant, the roots, and can end up wasting water. By installing a drip irrigation system, plants get an optimum supply of water directly to the roots.
2. Low Energy Consumption in the Water Pumping System
Drip irrigation systems are cost-effective since they don’t use much energy.
3. Complete Automation of the System
These systems are programmed so that plants receive water at the needed time, even if you’re not around.
A drip irrigation system is precise and accurate. Water only flows where the tubing is set. The drip irrigation system can also distribute the water directly at the root of the plant so that it absorbs quickly, reducing water loss from evaporation.
5. Resource Management
A professionally installed drip irrigation system helps manage resources like fertilizers and nutrients.
6. Weed Control
By installing a drip irrigation system, say goodbye to weeds. By directing the water directly on the plant, you avoid watering the weeds, thus preventing them from growing.
Visit your local hardware store or garden/landscaping store for more information on the best irrigation system for your garden. For the full service and setup, hire a landscape specialist to install the right system for your home.

"Our experience with JoAnn surpassed our expectations. After initially working with another realtor and waiting over a month for a simple market analysis, a friend recommended JoAnn to my husband and me. She came to our house within 48 hours of talking to us and gave us the guidance we were looking for, with regard to getting our house ready to list. From that day on, she showed that she was truly working for us. When she said she would call, she called. If she said she would come over at 5:00, she arrived at 5:00. She is a realtor who is true to her word, following through with absolutely everything. With record low rates, the market has never been busier; however, JoAnn always made time for us. She stayed in constant communication and set our minds at ease many times, with her experience and knowledge. Selling our home was bittersweet, as we lived there for 16.5 years. JoAnn is the kind of realtor who understands the emotions involved and is not someone who's just looking for a quick sale, or a commission. She is knowledgeable, experienced, and dedicated to her clients. Buying/selling a home is a big decision; don't waste your time with someone who does not possess the qualities JoAnn has. Her long-standing reputation in the Real Estate field speaks for itself and her (100%) 5 Star Zillow ratings demonstrate how her clients truly feel about working with her. As you would with any other big decision, go with an expert when buying/selling. Choose someone with solid experience, who is an expert at her job. Choose someone who is true to her word and puts YOUR interests first. Choose JoAnn Drabble. As one of her MANY clients, we are so very glad we did!"
