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 Mom’s 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.

You’ve moved most of your holiday and birthday shopping online with great results, so why are you hesitant to embrace online grocery shopping?

While the "on-line" part might be new, the delivery part was a staple of family life in yesteryear. The milkman delivered bottles of liquid freshness to the doorstep daily, and the greengrocer hawked his vegetables at your back door. Even the baker delivered fresh bread to your table, and the butcher cut to order and delivered whatever was available.

Then came the “modern” era of supermarkets and big cart shopping. Gone were the days of opening your front door to find the crate of fruit or haggling over a cup of coffee with the produce farmer. The new way to buy food was to make one trip to a large grocery store, fill the cart from shelves stacked with multiple options, gather fruits and vegetables shipped from far lands whether in-season or not, then stand in line to pay for it, let the box-boy or bag-girl pack it up for you and deliver it to your car. Sometimes they even helped you put it in the trunk. Then, when you arrived home, you called to the kids and your spouse to help you bring in the groceries.

With a few adjustments, this is still the norm for most Americans. But it doesn't have to be. You could just have the best of both worlds: all the choices available from a large supermarket with the convenience of home delivery.

Online shopping

Grocery shopping via online portals typically falls into three categories: online only stores; supermarkets with online pickup or delivery services; shopping and delivery services.

  • Online only. As the name indicates, these stores do not exist as brick and mortar. Clients order and pay via a website and products arrive at their doorstep. At one time, online portals offered only dry goods since shipping in warm or cold seasons would not affect the product. Now, however, many online grocers offer packaged meals with fresh meat and produce packaged especially to arrive farm fresh and ready to cook.
  • Supermarkets. Not to be outdone by the convenience of online shopping, grocery stores and supermarket chains began offering online services for order with convenience pick up in designated store locations. Amazon’s purchase of Whole Foods chain spurred even more competition in the online ordering arena. Some stores also offer preferential parking for online order customers. Other stores now offer delivery for a fee, even same-day delivery, and a short delivery window, so you're not stuck at home waiting.
  • Services. To fill the gap, shopper and delivery services like Insta-Cart and Shipt will shop for you at stores that don't offer delivery. 

If you're pressed for time and are looking for a new way to add more time to your life, try out one of these services.

As a home seller, it is crucial to do whatever you can to optimize your house sale earnings. Lucky for you, we are here to help you promote your residence to the right groups of prospective buyers so you can increase the likelihood of a profitable home selling experience.

Now, let's take a look at three tips to help you maximize your home sale earnings.

1. Boost Your Home's Curb Appeal

You won't have to break your budget to upgrade your residence's curb appeal. In fact, completing simple home maintenance tasks like mowing the lawn and clearing dust and debris from exterior walkways may make it easy for buyers to fall in love with your residence.

Spend some time upgrading your residence's curb appeal – you'll be glad you did. Because if your home makes a positive first impression on buyers, there may be no shortage of interest in your house. As a result, buyers may compete for your home – something that could help you get the best price for your residence.

2. Remove Clutter

Clutter may make your home appear smaller than its true size. As such, you should do everything possible to eliminate clutter before you add your home to the real estate market.

Oftentimes, it helps to host a yard sale or list excess items online. In other instances, you may want to donate various items you no longer need to charity or give them to family members and friends.

For home sellers, it is essential to remove as much clutter as you can. Remember, if you eliminate clutter, you can showcase the true beauty of your residence's interior. This may help buyers see the full potential of your home, and ultimately, could lead to offers to purchase that match or exceed your expectations.

3. Hire a Real Estate Agent

If you are unsure about how to navigate different parts of the house selling process, there is no need to stress. By hiring a real estate agent, you can get the help you need to achieve the optimal home selling results.

A real estate agent is a house selling expert who will be able to provide you with personalized recommendations and suggestions. First, he or she will meet with you and learn about you and your home. A real estate agent next will craft a custom home selling strategy. And once a real estate agent puts your home selling plan into action, he or she will ensure you can enjoy a seamless home selling experience.

Furthermore, a real estate agent is available to assist you in any way possible. If you are unsure about how to price your residence, whether to accept an offer to purchase or have other home selling concerns, a real estate agent will help you address them immediately.

Ready to maximize your home sale earnings? Use the aforementioned tips, and you can bolster your chances of enjoying a success house selling experience.

We have all heard about it. Maybe even wondered if it something that we can do. With so many people looking for ways to save, be it time or money (or sanity), cutting the cable has become a popular consideration lately. If you have been wondering if it is for you here are some reasons to think about it.

How much time do you spend in front of the tube? 

If you spend most of your off time watching the TV, you may be wondering if it is worth it for you. On the other hand, it might buy back some of your free time to spend on other things that you would instead focus on but find yourself sucked away from with the bright lights of a new show or movie. Either way, it is worth checking out for yourself.

Would you replace your cable?

If you get rid of cable would you choose to replace it with a streaming service, antenna box or another such tool? If so what would the cost be of said services? Now is the time to compare and make sure that you would not wind up spending more to replace than the cable that you are cutting. If, for instance, you choose two streaming services and need better internet service to support them price those together and find out how it compares to your current rate and options. Sometimes you may find that alternatives could be the winner in this battle of choice depending on what your focus is (sports, travel, cooking, news, etc.)

If you do not want to spend time with this electronic interloper what will you do with your time? 

It is a good idea to find ways to cut out some of the electronics in your life, but determine what you will do with the time you put back into your life. If you find yourself bored it will probably be no time at all before you are hooked back up to cable. What is a passion that you have wanted to try but haven't? Maybe you enjoy cooking (or eating) new recipes, want to try your hand at photography, have a favorite cause close to your heart that you would like to volunteer for or have a list of books that you haven't gotten to yet. These all become options once you have identified the opportunity and made it available by cutting the cord to your couch.

Whatever your decision- enjoy it! 

Once you have weighed out your options and made your decision enjoy doing what you want with your time. If you make a new choice to fill your time give it a chance. It will surely feel odd at first, but as with anything new, if you stick to it long enough, you will enjoy the perks of a decision well made.
