Open Houses - Sell a Home - Remerica Hometown Realtors

Ann Arbor homes for sale are some of the most popular in Michigan, but even the best homes won't sell themselves. Real estate agents who want to maximize their effectiveness need to be comfortable with many different methods of promoting their listings. One of the most powerful techniques to help almost any seller is the open house.

At Remerica Hometown, our REALTORS® recognize the value of a memorable open house. In fact, an open house is the most effective face-to-face method for promoting Ann Arbor properties

Sure, some people will visit an open house just to look around. And it's important to make sure you practice basic safety precautions to protect the home. But in many cases, a well-planned open house will yield motivated buyers who may make selling much easier.

February 10th is National Home Warranty Day and, believe it or not, it may just be the most important holiday of the year for homeowners. Our REALTORS® understand that the homebuying process can feel like an overwhelming endeavor. With so many important decisions to make, we believe that all homebuyers should be aware of as many elements of this transaction as possible — one of which is when a home purchase warrants a home warranty. Let's define what a home warranty is, why some homeowners purchase one while others do not, and how to determine whether or not you'll need to purchase a home warranty for one of our Ann Arbor homes for sale.

Is Home Insurance the Same as a Home Warranty?

When you purchase a product, many manufacturers or businesses give you the opportunity to sign up for a warranty or insurance on the item. Sometimes a warranty is provided for free while an insurance plan requires an additional purchase.
