In this day and age, a home buyer does not close escrow without hearing about the need for a home inspection. But what does a home inspection report disclose? Home buyers are often clueless about home construction and its components, and have difficulty deciphering home inspection reports. Many don't know how to figure out which types of defects are serious or whether their home inspector checked all the essentials.

Here is my video about What Happens At a Home Inspection.

3. How Foreclosures Work

Home buyers who want a good deal in real estate invariably think first about pursuing foreclosures. Buyers have this picture in their mind of a cute little house, surrounded by a white picket fence that is owned by a widowed mom who fell on hard times, but that scenario is generally far from reality.

Common sense says it's smart to expose your home to the largest number of buyers, and getting buyers inside to preview a home can be a huge hurdle to jump. Although not all homes are candidates for an open house due to location, condition or competition, many of my listings sell during open houses because I follow my own guidelines.

Home staging is about illusions. It's how David Copperfield would sell a house. It's beyond decorating and cleaning. It's about perfecting the art of creating moods. Staging makes your house look bigger, brighter, cleaner, warmer, more loving and, best of all, it makes home buyers want to buy it.
