The microwave does not get the respect it deserves in the kitchen. In reality, it is a useful appliance that is under-utilized in the kitchen. Did you know that apart from warming leftover dinner, there are many things that a microwave can do for you? A microwave is actually designed to cook some food items for you quickly and efficiently compared to other cooking methods. Here are some things you can whip up using your microwave.

Bacon

Instead of stressing out to fry bacon, a microwave can cook it for you without the splashing fat. Simply line a plate with paper towels, line up your bacon strips and set your microwave to high heat for up to five minutes. Most moderately-sliced bacon strips will cook to a crisp.

Popcorn

You can make DIY popcorn at home using a microwave. Take a brown paper bag and put in some kernel corns. Fold the bag several times and heat it until it begins to pop. Once the popping reduces to a minimum, put some olive oil or sweet butter, seasoning and anything else you like in your popcorn. Shake it all in, and that's it!

Frittatas for one

Take a mug, spray it generously with cooking spray and break an egg into it. Add in some milk, salt, pepper, and your favorite vegetables and anything else you like in your frittata. Microwave it on high heat for about two minutes, and it's done!Steamed milk for lattesIf you are making your latte at home, you can complete it with “steamed” milk and foam just like your favorite barista. Put two-percent milk into a mason jar and close the lid. Shake it until it foams for about a minute. Then take off the cover and put it in a microwave for about a minute till it is warm. Pour milk into your latte and add the foam for a special topping.

Toasted nuts

Toasting nuts in a pan can leave your kitchen smelling like burnt nuts. You can avoid this smelly nut kitchen issue by using a microwave to get the crisp on your nuts instead. Use a microwave-safe flat dish to cook it instead to get the same crisp without the smell. Don’t cook your nuts for a long time. For the best results, set your microwave to one minute and check your nuts after each round to see if it’s toasted enough for you.

Let's face it – stress can be problematic, particularly for a homebuyer who is competing with others to find the best house at the lowest price. Lucky for you, we're here to help you minimize the guesswork associated with purchasing a house, increasing the likelihood of a stress-free homebuying experience.

Now, let's take a look at three tips to help you enjoy a stress-free homebuying journey.

1. Study the Housing Market

The housing market conditions in one city or town may vary from the real estate conditions in another. As such, you'll want to assess the local housing market closely to identify patterns and trends. This will allow you to obtain comprehensive real estate market insights that can help you become a diligent homebuyer.

Of course, don't forget to analyze the prices of recently sold houses in your city or town too. This housing market information can help you differentiate a seller's market from a buyer's one so you can tailor your homebuying journey accordingly.

2. Prep Your Finances

Although you know that you want to buy a house as soon as possible, you still have no idea how you'll pay for a residence. Fortunately, if you prepare your finances today, you'll be better equipped than ever before to enjoy a stress-free homebuying experience.

Consult with a variety of banks and credit unions to learn about all of the mortgage options at your disposal. That way, you can explore a wide range of mortgage options and select one that matches your finances perfectly.

Also, be sure to ask lots of questions when you meet with lenders. These financial institutions employ friendly, knowledgeable mortgage specialists who can help you evaluate all of your home financing options. And if you ask plenty of mortgage questions, you can gain the insights that you need to make the best-possible mortgage decision.

3. Collaborate with a Real Estate Agent

If you want to avoid stress throughout the homebuying journey, it helps to hire a real estate agent. In fact, with a real estate agent at your side, you can get the support that you need to thrive.

A real estate agent will learn about your homebuying goals and help you map out a successful homebuying journey. As a result, a real estate agent will make it easy to identify potential homebuying hurdles and ensure that you can avoid such issues.

Furthermore, a real estate agent delivers extensive assistance at each stage of the homebuying journey. He or she will help you examine a broad array of houses and find a home that is right for you. Plus, after you discover your dream house, a real estate agent will help you submit a competitive homebuying proposal.

As you get ready to enter the real estate market, it helps to plan ahead as much as you can. Take advantage of the aforementioned tips, and ultimately, you can minimize stress as you proceed along the homebuying journey.
