Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This was an Eastern Parson Spider (Herpyllus ecclesiasticus). If you happen to have a cup to place over the spider and stiff piece of paper handy to slide underneath the cup to trap it; these can be caught and released outside. You can reduce the number of spiders you see in your home by sealing cracks around floors, windows, doors etc.
