Entering the housing market may be difficult for a buyer. In many instances, buyers worry about paying too much for a house. On the other hand, the temptation to overspend on a house sometimes can be overwhelming for a homebuyer who is concerned about losing his or her dream residence to a rival buyer.

Fortunately, we're here to help you determine exactly what you can afford to pay for a house, thereby reducing the risk of spending too much on a residence.

Let's take a look at three tips to ensure a buyer can purchase a great house at the right price.

1. Get Pre-Approved for a Mortgage

A mortgage generally is a must-have for a homebuyer. If you get pre-approved for a mortgage, you can start searching for houses that fall within your financial limits.

To learn about your mortgage options, you should meet with a variety of banks and credit unions. These financial institutions employ friendly, knowledgeable mortgage specialists who can teach you about myriad mortgage options.

Also, don't hesitate to ask questions as you search for a mortgage. If you understand all of the mortgage options at your disposal, you can make an informed mortgage decision. Then, you'll be able to start pursuing houses with a budget in hand.

2. Assess the Housing Market

The real estate market frequently fluctuates. As such, you should look closely at housing market data to find out whether you're preparing to search for a house in a buyer's or seller's market.

Oftentimes, it helps to look at the prices of recently sold houses in your area. This will allow you to see how much sellers received for their homes, as well as how long these houses were available before they sold. That way, you can use this housing market data to narrow your price range and establish realistic expectations for your home search.

3. Consult with a Real Estate Agent

A real estate agent is a housing market expert. Therefore, a real estate agent can make it simple for you to pay the right price for your ideal house.

Typically, a real estate agent will want to meet with you before you start your home search. He or she then can learn about you and your homebuying goals and help you craft a homebuying budget. As a result, a real estate agent will allow you to refine your home search, ensuring you can check out high-quality houses at budget-friendly prices.

Let's not forget about the support that a real estate agent delivers throughout the homebuying journey, either. A real estate agent will set up home showings and keep you up to date about new houses that fall within your price range. And if you'd like to submit an offer on a house, a real estate agent will help you put together a competitive proposal as well.

Pay the right price for your dream house Ė use the aforementioned tips, and you can boost the likelihood of discovering the right home, at the right price.

Whether we like it or not one of the rooms in our home we spend the most time in is the bathroom. And, perhaps in part of the mindfulness movement, people are catching on and turning their bathrooms into a relaxing sanctuary. A room that was once at the bottom of the renovation list has quickly found itself climbing the ranks.

Looking at the overall trends one theme has certainly emerged: A spa-like bathroom.

And why not?

Take the time to slow down and pamper yourself in a luxurious new bathroom to unwind after a particularly long day. Or just to treat yourself, because hey you deserve it!

So where to start?  

Anyone can create a spa-like atmosphere with these five details (which can each be done for around or under $100 by the way).

Cedarwood bath mats have quickly become popular. They are certainly more appealing than the matching sets of fluffy carpets complete with that one that wraps around the toilet. They add a touch of Norwegian style aka hygge. But theyíre also functional in that each time they become wet they emit their wonderful cedar smell throughout the room. For those worried about how it holds up to moisture over time, cedar is known for its resistance to mold and mildew and is. Which is exactly why cedar chests were/are so popular!  

Another popular way to bring in aromatic elements of nature is via dried eucalyptus and lavender bunches. More than just beautiful to look at when in a steamy room they fill the room with their calming scent. If you donít have a vendor at your local farmerís market offering these as bunches shops like West Elm, Williams-Sonoma and Etsy will all deliver them right to your door.

An element that makes a spa so peaceful that not everyone might think to add to their own bathrooms is spa music. Give your vocal chords a break from shower karaoke and instead look for spa or meditation-themed music on apps like Spotify and Pandora. It will change the entire atmosphere of the room.

A heated towel bar seems super luxe and it is! But that doesnít make it unattainable or completely out of the budget. Chic, stylish electric models can be found for around just $100. Treat yourself to the gift of warm cozy towels after every bathing experience.  

Speaking of towels keep luxe towels on hand and easily within reach. Rolling them up to put on display on a shelf doesnít just add a more spa-like element to your home, itís also just really convenient! Just fold towels in thirds length-wise aka the long way and then roll them up. Itís easy, classy and looks like you put in way more effort than you did.
