Summer’s warm weather and sunshine make it an excellent time for sellers to host an open house. Because of this, there will be many more houses on the market. This means it is time to distinguish your home and make it irresistible to buyers. Follow these tips for a super successful open house.
Tip #1: Put your best foot forward - Make sure everything is clean and in working order. Make sure potential buyers see themselves enjoying the home, not a project needing work.
Tip #2: Provide a takeaway or flyer - Guests are likely to be viewing multiple houses in a day. You will want to provide them with photos and house highlights to make it memorable.
Tip #3: No locked doors - Give full access to the home, garage, and backyard. You do not want to appear to be hiding anything.
Tip #4: No pets - Arrange for pets not to be at your home for a showing. Take them to a friend’s house or a pet daycare. It will be much less stressful for you, your real estate agent, and your pet.
Tip #5 Keep cool - Keep your home at a comfortable room temperature. 65° is ideal. No one wants to spend time in a stuffy house.
Tip #6 Provide Refreshments - Make your home a fun and relaxing atmosphere. Potential buyers walk away with a positive mindset when they enjoy the time they spend in your home.
