These three videos from the International Builders Show will help you understand the benefits of new designs and technology from the perspective of both buyers and sellers.

Every year we see great new products and services on display at the International Builders Show, and 2013 was no exception. The exhibit floor of the Las Vegas Convention Center was teeming with innovation. We were able to get so many great ideas on camera that we thought we’d better break things up.

In this first video, we wanted to give real estate professionals an idea of how they can explain some of these new products to buyers. After all, your sellers are going to expect you to be able to feature their home upgrades during showings and open houses. This video will not only help you identify the new technology, but the benefits to potential buyers in upkeep and ease of use.



Real estate professionals should also be able to speak intelligently about the new product options that are available to sellers who need to make pre-sale upgrades. This second video contains tips for how to help sellers navigate the many options available to them when they're looking to fix up the place before putting it on the market.



Finally, this last video is an overview of some of the newest, coolest items we found on the show floor. Enjoy!
