If you recently sold your house, there may be only a few weeks before you need to relocate to a new address. As such, you'll likely face a time crunch to pack up your belongings and get rid of excess items, including various home appliances.

Although your refrigerator, washer, dryer and other home appliances have served you well for many years, there is no time like the present to sell these items. That way, you can earn extra cash and avoid the hassle of moving these big, heavy items from your current address to your new one.

For home sellers who have only a short amount of time to sell their appliances, there's no need to worry. In fact, there are many quick, easy ways to sell your appliances and maximize their value.

Now, let's take a look at three tips to help you sell your appliances before moving day.

1. List Your Appliances Online

Create an online listing for each of your home appliances, and you should have no trouble stirring up plenty of interest in these items.

When you craft an online listing, it is important to include as much information as possible. Therefore, you should provide details about a home appliance's age and condition, along with photos. This will make it easy for a home appliance shopper to determine whether a particular appliance is the right choice.

Also, share your online listing with family members and friends. And if you post your online listing on social networks, you may be able to generate significant interest in an appliance in no time at all.

2. Host a Yard Sale

A yard sale offers a great opportunity to sell home appliances and other items before you move.

Host a yard sale on a Saturday or Sunday and start your yard sale in the morning. By doing so, you can improve your chances of attracting a wide range of yard sale shoppers.

In addition, be open to negotiating with yard sale shoppers. If you maintain flexibility on the price of a home appliance, you can boost your chances of a quick sale.

3. Post Flyers in Your Community

Craft flyers that include information about your appliances and post them in your community. This will allow you to generate interest from local buyers.

Flyers should be clear, concise and informative. They can include information about an appliance, along with contact information that enables buyers to reach you via phone or email.

Lastly, if you need to sell appliances prior to moving day, it often pays to consult with a real estate agent.

In many instances, a real estate agent can offer recommendations and suggestions to help you streamline the moving process. As a result, this housing market professional can make it easy for you to sell home appliances and other items before you move.

Cleaning your home can always seem like an ever daunting task, but it truly doesnít have to be. If you spend the time to keep up with your home in small chunks and keep your cleaning routine organized, cleaning can be a breeze. Take a peek at the tips laid out below to discover how to make cleaning an easy task around your home. 


Keep All The Tools You Need In One Place


Itís a good idea to keep everything that youíll need to clean your home within one place. Use a bucket or caddy to help you tote your essentials around the house. This way, it will be easier to bring your cleaning supplies with you from room to room. You could even keep a cleaning tote on each level of your home for an even smoother cleaning process. 


Skip The Small Stuff

If you take out time during every cleaning to dust small collections and care for them, youíre wasting your time. Small knick-knacks and other hidden details of the home can stand to be dusted about once a month. 


Have A Storage System


Itís much easier to clean your house if you have a storage system. Having an organizational system in place means that everything has a place. Be sure you have shelving, cubbies, racks, and everything else youíll need to help your family put everything away as they use it. Keeping things neat and organized is half the battle when it comes to keeping your home clean.     


Use Your Vacuum Wisely


You have a vacuum to make cleaning easier, so use it! Get an extension cord to make every area of the house easy to reach. Although a broom or dust mop can sometimes be helpful in the cleaning process, a vacuum makes it much easier to get every piece of dirt and dust up off of the floors.  


Have A Plan


Beginning to clean your home without any rhyme or reason can be a recipe for disaster. If you only have time to do one room on one day, keep your cleaning schedule short but consistent. This way, the entire house will get done, but you wonít be overwhelmed. Focusing on one room at a time can help you to make your home shine. 


Use The Cleaning Supplies That Will Be A Help To You


There are many more things you can use in your home than conventional cleaning supplies. Use whatever works for you. Everything from vinegar to toothbrushes is fair game to use for your cleaning supplies.

When you budget to buy a home, you sit down, do the math, and try to estimate what all of your monthly costs will be. There are so many monthly costs that come with being a homeowner that can make the whole process complicated. Sure, you have taken the standard costs into account like home insurance, property taxes, and even utilities. But there are a few out-of-the-box costs that youíll need to consider for your house hunt.


Flood Or Other Natural Disaster Insurance


Natural disasters are costly and devastating. Many homeowners who live in areas that are affected by natural disasters like floods and earthquakes often opt for additional coverage for their homes. Premiums for earthquake and flood insurance often end up being very high. As a natural disaster strikes, these premiums can go up even more. If you live in one of the high-risk areas for natural disasters, youíll want to check with your insurance agent ahead of time to plan for the additional costs that these special kinds of insurance will incur.


Water Costs During A Drought


There are many areas across the US that suffer drought conditions from time to time. Your water bill can skyrocket during these times. Itís best to continue conserving water and watch your bill closely in order to try and save some costs. Thereís not a whole lot you can do otherwise to control your bill. Youíll need to stay prepared with some extra cash on hand in case of these emergencies and know that costs can rise due to different environmental conditions.  


Tax Hikes And Special Assessments 


As a homeowner, youíll need to prepare for different kinds of assessments and tax increases. If your condominium complex needs significant repairs then youíll probably end up paying an assessment to help offset the costs. This is what comes with belonging to a homeownerís association. 


You canít prevent that the town is building a brand new school that requires a tax increase, nor can you prevent roof damage on one of the buildings in your complex. Financially, this is a hidden cost of homeownership that you should be prepared for. 


Unexpected Maintenance Costs And Home Furnishings


Once you move into a home, youíll need to prepare for the unexpected. The dishwasher may need to be replaced. The roof may need repair. The walls may need some paint. 


When you buy a home you may also need a bunch of things to furnish the home. These could include dishes, pots and pans, sofas, beds, and more. You donít want to leave your new home completely empty! You also donít want to be without vital appliances like an oven or a sink for too long if they are outdated or in disrepair. This is why itís a good idea to have extra money on hand to deal with any of these costs.


The best rule of thumb to follow when buying a home is to always be prepared with a but of extra cash on hand to avoid major issues down the road.
