There are both younger and older Millennials today willing to purchase a home but want a realtor to guide them through the process due to a couple of mistakes they are afraid of committing. The most surprising thing about how Millennials buy homes is that they want a realtor to guide them through the process, because everyone, buyers as well as sellers, wants to make the right financial decisions, to avoid real estate regret and unnecessary pressure from high market conditions. 

However, what can Millennials do to avoid real estate regret? Although most people could think of driving around the area all day to get an idea of what the market is like, it is essential to get advice from someone with some experience and your interest in mind to help you avoid future complaints and nagging. As a result, many make such big decisions with their parents:

Parents have experience

With the interest of mortgage rates going higher and home prices increasing altogether. Parents could come in rescue with financial assistance and thus, try to have a share of buying decisions from the location of such property to the pricing and size.

Most times, your parents’ perspective on decision-making might seem different from yours, or you could perceive it to be biased and no relation to your situation and taste. Irrespective of this, endeavor to heed to their advice as it turns out in most times to be a wise approach.

Listen when they point out to you that the property might be overpriced

You could find a property and think it is the perfect one for you. They could be in an expensive area with multiple school districts, or have a lower level of crime rate due to tight security. They might be energy-efficient during the winter and so would save you money monthly. As a result of these advantages, you might think all these concessions are worth paying more without further negotiation. With your parents by your side with more experience, they can spot a problem or fault with the same property you're looking at and help you to use it as a bargaining chip.

Conversing openly with your parents on topics like real estate plans, money, and wills may seem difficult and awkward to you. But it will be wise of you to do so as real estate comes with a lot of different options and problems. Whatever the case may be, prepare yourself and start talking to them when making such a decision to support and guide you through. 

If your parents are part of your real estate decision-making process, make certain to introduce them to your real estate agent so that you're all on the same page.

The market’s hot in your area and you want to sell your home, but your everyday life is busy. How do you find the time to prepare your home while still living there or plan a move and keep all the other plates spinning and balls juggling?

Prioritize, Plan, Put it in place
If you’ve lived in your current home for very long you may not be able to estimate how long it will take to get organized and ready. When fitting it in between everything else, you must prioritize so that you can focus on one thing at a time. In general, consider these five or six categories and the focus on just one: maintenance you can do, upgrades or repairs that require a professional, discards or trash, items to sell or give away, furniture and belongings to store, necessities to keep on hand.

Maintenance
You’ve been putting it off, but you know the gutters need cleaning or a couple cracked cover plates need replacing. These are items you can do yourself, you just need to make time to do them. Once you’ve made your list, take stock of supplies, tools, and parts you need. Plan a single trip to the hardware store on your way home from work to minimize time lost. Pick the easiest one, the one that you can do in a single evening. Do it right when you get home before other priorities interrupt you. Then on to the next one.

Upgrades or repairs
Some repairs—and many upgrades—are best when done by a professional. When your house needs to shine, a less than stellar repair job, uneven paint, or a visible patch could detract from your sale price. If you don’t know a qualified contractor for your needs, ask a family member, friend, or neighbor, or utilize one of the contractor's lists available online, or check with your local hardware store contractor’s desk for recommendations.

Discard
Let’s face facts, most of us keep far too much stuff. The first to go should be items that are no longer useful. Get all the trash out of your garage, attic, closets, and drawers. If it’s broken and not easily repairable, let it go. Contact your trash service to find out when the next bulk pickup day is or arrange for extra service. Having a date creates a deadline and may motivate you to do it quickly. Get the whole family on board to help.

Sell or give
Place items on Craig’s List, Offer Up, or Facebook Marketplace if you can. But remember, your time is a valuable commodity so taking the time to sell objects online or at a yard sale could have diminishing returns. If your neighborhood has a community sale date, box items up and set them aside for that one day. Otherwise, give your items to charity. Be sure to list all the items you give and get an acknowledgment receipt from the charity. The IRS has tables of fair-market value for well-cared-for and useful items, so pass the list along to your tax preparer.

Store
If you have extra furniture, collectibles, or seasonal items, it pays to put them in storage while your home is on the market. Cluttered and overfilled homes tend not to show as well as those with more streamlined furnishings.

Organize the necessities
What you can’t get rid of or store—those pesky necessities of life that keep your home operating smoothly—organize! That way, when your real estate professional calls, your home is ready to show at a moment’s notice.
