Avoid these 8 staging mistakes

You may love your home, but that doesn’t mean that everyone coming through the door will feel the same way. What may be “charming” to the seller may seem off-putting to a prospective buyer. Many sellers attempt to stage their home themselves and, in doing so, create mistakes that can actually sidetrack the sale of their homes.

Staying on top of rugs

It may not be the first thing one thinks about when decorating for a sale, but the addition of rugs to a home can go a long way.

Understanding home inspections

There’s no denying that buying a home is one of the biggest thrills of your life, but it can also quickly become overwhelming. While the home you choose may appear to be the perfect house, hiding underneath the dream could be serious unknown defects that can make your investment a costly one.

Working kitchens catch the eye of aspiring chefs

It’s astonishing how many people believe they are the next Mario Batali and have taken to the kitchen in a serious way.

Open House

Home sellers today must convince a new era of buyers returning to the market that their homes stand for value and quality.

Costs for First-Time Buyers

Buying a new home can be a huge, complex undertaking, especially when it’s your first time. That’s why it’s important to have an experienced real estate agent guiding you along the way.

The Psychology of Color on your Home

Agents frequently suggest that homeowners paint before placing their homes on the market. Don’t be offended!

Fireplaces Provide Warm Glow

With winter weather gripping most of the country the fireplace takes on greater importance in the sale of a home.

Floor the Competition

When people enter your home they usually look down before up, so that first step is vital for attracting a homebuyer and making a great first impression. This is one reason why more people are installing hardwood floors in their homes.  

Researching the Perfect Neighbourhood

There’s an episode of the hit TV series “How I Met Your Mother” where the characters of Marshall and Lily decide to buy a home in a neighborhood they are unfamiliar with, only to learn later that it sits downwind from a sewer plant. The message is obvious: A buyer must do his or her due diligence on prospective neighborhoods to make the best real estate decisions.
