Preparing for an Open House

6 STEPS TO PREPARE FOR AN OPEN HOUSE

#1 Hire a cleaning service - a spotlessly clean home is essential.

#2 Mow your lawn and be sure toys and yard equipment are put away.

#3 Lock up your valuables, jewelry, and money.

#4 Open all curtains and turn on all the lights, even in the daytime.

#5 Send your pets to the neighbors or take them with you during the open house.

#6 Leave. It's awkward for prospective buyers to look in your closets and express their opinions of your home with you there.

10 WAYS TO MAKE YOUR HOME IRRESISTIBLE AT AN OPEN HOUSE:

#1 Place fresh flowers in the main room for a touch of color.

#2 Add a new shower curtain, fresh towels, and scented guest soaps to every bath.

#3 Set out potpourri or fresh baked goods for a homey smell.

#4 Set the table with pretty dishes and candles.

#5 Buy a fresh doormat to welcoming prospective buyers.

#6 Take one or two major pieces of furniture out of every room to create a sense of spaciousness.

#7 Put away kitchen appliances and personal bathroom items to give the illusion of more counter space.

#8 Lay a fire in the fireplace, or candles in the summertime.

#9 Depersonalize the rooms by putting away family photos, mementos, and distinctive artwork so the prospective buyers can better imagine his family in the home.

#10 Turn on the sprinklers for 30 minutes to make the lawn sparkle.
