Closet space can serve as a key differentiator for home sellers, particularly in a highly competitive real estate market. Fortunately, there are many quick, easy ways to revamp your closets, and ultimately, make them appear much larger. Here are five tips to help you transform ordinary closets into spacious ones instantly:

  1. Install a pegboard. Hang your belts, sunglasses and other accessories in your bedroom closet thanks to a pegboard.
With a high-quality pegboard in place, you'll be able to organize many items and access them without delay. After you list your home and begin showcasing it to prospective buyers, your self-installed pegboard is sure to make your bedroom closet stand out during any home tour.
  1. Take advantage of shoe shelves.
For those who want to organize their footwear, there may be no better option than shoe shelves. When it comes to selling your home, you'll want to do everything possible to make a distinct impression on prospective homebuyers. Thanks to shoe shelves, you'll be able to show interested parties exactly how much closet storage space they can enjoy if they purchase your home.
  1. Set up a mirror.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all? Setting up a stunning mirror in your walk-in closet enables you to maximize your storage space and make a bold décor statement as well. Any fashionista is sure to appreciate a walk-in closet mirror. And for those who want to set their home apart from others, installing a mirror in a walk-in closet may make a world of difference in the eyes of homebuyers.
  1. Use shelf dividers.
Keep your blankets, clothing and other closet items organized thanks to top-of-the-line shelf dividers. Using shelf dividers ensures that every item in your closet has its own home and can be organized accordingly. Furthermore, these dividers guarantee you won't have to sacrifice closet space and can optimize the amount of storage space at your disposal consistently. Shelf dividers serve as great options to show others exactly what they can do with all of the closet space that is available in your home. As a result, shelf dividers may help you differentiate your home from others on the real estate market.
  1. Get rid of clutter.
Clutter is a major problem for homeowners across the country, but those who gain control over their clutter can eliminate this problem. Try to clean out your closets every few months. This enables you to reduce the risk of clutter accumulating over an extended period of time. Also, focus on dividing your closet items into things you need and things you want. By doing so, you can put yourself in a better position to get rid of non-essential items regularly. By devoting the necessary time to maximize your closet space, you may be able to accelerate the process of selling your home. Remember, even minor features can help your residence stand out in a competitive real estate market, and those who are committed to distinguishing their home from others should evaluate the closet space available throughout their house.

Want to find your dream house quickly and effortlessly? You're not alone. In fact, many homebuyers across the United States browse the real estate market regularly in the hopes of finding their perfect residence.

Fortunately, there are numerous ways for homebuyers to accelerate the process of purchasing a house, and here are three tips to help homebuyers discover their dream houses without delay.

1. Set Realistic Expectations for Your Home.

When it comes to finding a residence, it is important to note that every house has its strengths and weaknesses. Thus, you'll want to set realistic expectations before you begin your search for the perfect home and differentiate the must-haves from the must-wants.

For example, you will need electricity, hot water and other utilities at your new home. On the other hand, you may want a house that features an indoor swimming pool, a fenced-in backyard and other deluxe amenities, but you need to keep in mind that you can live without these features as well.

Make a checklist of what you need and what you want from a future house. By doing so, you can simplify your home search and move one step closer to checking out houses that fulfill your needs perfectly.

2. Get Pre-Approved for a Mortgage.

What good is finding your dream home if you are unable to afford it? Instead, get pre-approved for a mortgage before you start your home search – you'll be glad you did. This will allow you to establish a budget for your home search and browse properties accordingly.

Don't forget to consult with multiple lenders as you explore your mortgage options. If you meet with a variety of banks and credit unions, you can find out about all of the financing options that are available.

Furthermore, be sure to check your credit score and get a copy of your credit report from each of the three major reporting bureaus (TransUnion, Equifax and Experian). You are entitled to a free copy of your credit report from each of the major reporting bureaus annually. And if you obtain a copy of your credit report, you can find out your credit score, work to improve it and boost your chances of securing a mortgage.

3. Employ a Real Estate Agent.

Hiring a real estate agent is essential for those who want to accelerate the homebuying process, and for good reason. With a friendly, professionally trained real estate agent at your side, you can learn about new homes that are available, submit offers on residences and more.

Your real estate agent will act as a liaison between you and a home seller. As such, he or she will work on your behalf to ensure you can purchase your dream home as quickly as possible.

Find a real estate agent to help you move along the homebuying process. This housing market expert will be happy to respond to your homebuying concerns and queries, and ultimately, make it easy to navigate each step of the homebuying journey.
