Help Sellers Avoid Costly Winter Repairs

Help Sellers Prep for a Winter Sale
By Barbara Ballinger
November 30, 2022
National Association of Realtors®
Winter is fast approaching, and the last thing a seller needs is a costly repair brought on by freezing temps or easily-fixed home maintenance issues. As the market shifts, homes in many places are staying on the market longer, so make sure your sellers are prepped for the long haul when it comes to a winter sale.

Does Staging a Home Really Add Value to the Sale?

For prospective buyers, visualization is key in determining if a house feels like home. RE/MAX agents weigh in on why staging could be a make-or-break factor in sellers receiving top dollar value.

Ever scrolled through a listing and been bemused by photos including outdated furniture, empty rooms or wild wall colors?
It’s the house and property that are for sale, but the existing décor – or lack thereof – inside the home can shape potential buyers’ perception and even affect its perceived value. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR) 2021 Profile of Home Staging, 82% of homebuyers’ real estate agents said that staging helps buyers visualize themselves living in a prospective home.
