Preparing For An Open House

Remember, you only get once chance to make a good first impression

Richard & Helen's Top Tips for a Successful Open House:

  • De-Clutter
    • Allow for easy movement throughout the house.
  • Animals
    • Remove all animals, and any evidence (food, litter boxes, yard, etc.) of your pets.
  • Closets
    • Keep in mind potential buyers will want to look into closets, storage areas, and garages - these areas should be in presentable condition.
  • Appeal to the Senses
    • If you have any scented candles, burn a few to give an inviting atmosphere - the aroma should be subtle and inviting, not overbearing
    • If you are a smoker, clean out and dispose of all cigarette butts and possibly air out the rooms where smoking occurs.
  • Make Plans
    • It is recommended that sellers not be present at their open house.
