These days keeping track of your money can be a hassle. Between all the different ways you can spend your money it’s easy to lose track of your spending. Luckily there are some great apps for money management. Below are a few favorites— all rated with 3.5 stars and up. LearnVest: LearnVest is a money management platform, but it’s also much more. You can link up your various accounts to keep track of your spending, savings and goals (that you set). But the best part about this app are the articles you receive via email from them. The articles that they send are full of helpful information related to early retirement, saving for your wedding, how to pay down debt, rebuilding bad credit, smart saving, and so much more. Every article is worth the read. This app is available on iOS. Mint: Mint is a well-known money management platform. You can hook up your bank accounts, credit cards, 401k and loans and set up budgets. The app utilizes graphs to show you how you spend your money and provides you with bill reminders. It will even give you your net worth. The only downfall to the app is that it has a difficult time connecting to small banks’ online banking systems. This app is available on iOS and Google Play. Daily Budget: This is a do-it-yourself app. If you are one that is weary about putting your personal banking information onto your phone then this is the money management app for you. You plug in your income, reoccurring expenses and it gives you a daily budget. You can add in additional income and expenses as they occur. But, you will have to pay for the full version if you want to utilize all income and expense categories. This app is available on iOS. Comparable apps are available on Google Play. Prosper Daily: This app’s main emphasis is on protecting your accounts. You can link up your bank accounts and credit cards and approve or deny charges as they occur. But, it is also good for a high level review of your accounts. You are able to view your balances on your credit cards and checking account all in one place. Another pro of this app is that you are able to categorize your charges making it easy to keep track of what you are spending your money on. One of the great new features now available is the ability to view your credit score. And beyond that it provides insight into why your score is the way it is and how to improve it. This app is available on iOS and Google Play. These apps will aid you in getting in front of your spending and back in control of where your money is going. Be sure to take full advantage of the offerings that each app has, as it will only benefit you in the long run.

Looking to list your house and maximize its value? Ultimately, a home selling timeline can make a world of difference, regardless of where your house is located.

A home selling timeline enables you to map out the home selling journey. Then, you can decide the best steps to ensure you can achieve your home selling goals as quickly as possible.

Now, let's take a look at three tips to help you craft an effective home selling timeline.

1. Set a Deadline

When do you want to be out of your current house and living elsewhere? Establish a home selling deadline, and you can determine how much time you have to navigate the home selling journey.

If you need to sell your home in a matter of weeks, you'll likely need to move quickly if you want to achieve the best-possible results. Thus, you'll need to make a plan to ensure you can promote your house to the right buyers and speed up the home selling process.

Conversely, if you have several months to sell your house, you may be able to take a gradual approach to listing and promoting your residence. In this scenario, it may be worthwhile to conduct a home inspection, identify any underlying home problems and address these issues. That way, you can perform assorted house improvements to boost the value of your residence.

2. Determine Your Budget

A home selling timeline and budget often go hand-in-hand, and for good reason. If you craft a home selling budget in conjunction with your timeline, you can ensure you have the necessary finances for expenses that may arise during the home selling journey.

For example, consider what may happen if a homebuyer identifies myriad home problems during an inspection. In this situation, a buyer may ask you to complete home improvements in order to move forward in the home selling process. And if you have already set aside funds for home improvements, you can complete these tasks and ensure you can stick to your home selling timeline.

3. Consult with a Real Estate Agent

For home sellers, it generally helps to hire a real estate agent. This housing market professional can help you create a successful home selling timeline and address a wide range of home selling hurdles.

A real estate agent understands the complexities of selling a house and will make it easy for you to make informed decisions throughout the home selling journey. He or she will teach you about the housing market and ensure you can establish a competitive initial asking price for your residence. Next, a real estate agent will promote your house to prospective buyers and help you review offers on your residence. And once you receive a fair homebuying proposal, a real estate agent will ensure you can quickly and effortlessly finalize a home sale.

Set up a timeline for selling your house – you'll be glad you did. If you use the aforementioned tips, you can establish an effective home selling timeline that guarantees you can optimize the profits from your home sale.
