According to a recent report from the National Association of REALTORS®, a considerable rise in sales dollar volume from Canadian home buyers caused foreign investment in U.S. real estate to increase in 2016. Even though China was in the top spot for sales volumes for the fourth year in a row, Canada saw the largest increase from $11.2 billion in 2015 to $19 billion in 2016 – an all-time high for the country. This rise is attributed to U.S. property prices; while still expensive, it is more affordable than Canadian real estate.
Most home sellers know the importance of keeping their house clean and clutter free while it is on the market, but sometimes, taking a few extra steps can make all the difference.

Buyers also need to be able to picture themselves living in a house, and 77 percent of buyer’s agents say that staging makes it easier for buyers to visualize a house as their future home.
