Our Open House Checklist
Confession time: Who has been to an open house, just for fun, even if they weren't looking to buy a home?
Hosting an open house is a great way to get more potential buyers through the door. Even the "nosey neighbors" taking a tour can help to spread the word about your home.
Here's a quick checklist we like to use before hosting an open house for our clients:
✓ Lock up or remove valuables
✓ Deep clean and declutter as much as possible
✓ Minimize personal items and family photos
✓ Less is more: Help your buyers picture this as their home
✓ Put out snacks and drinks for the guests
✓ Put out marketing material like flyers and disclosures
✓ Open the windows to bring natural light in
✓ Do a final walk through and see the home through a buyer's perspective
Remember, it's all out about making a great first impression in a very limited time. Reach out if you have any questions!
