Open House Tips

  • Out with the old. It might sound a little harsh, but you’re going to want to remove about half of your belongings.
  • What’s on the outside counts. First impressions are huge, so make sure your lawn is cut, trees trimmed, toys and garbage cans … are all stored away.
  • Shine up your kitchen and baths. Get them as sparkly clean as possible
  • Always take a final lap. Look at your house objectively, through the eyes of a buyer.
  • Holding an open  house is a great way to gauge buyers’ interest in a property and quickly assess whether the asking price is appropriate.

Tips to Make your Home Stand out

  • Clear the Clutter. Clean out closets and storage areas to make these spaces seem more spacious
  • At Face Value. Think about what minor home repairs and improvements you can implement to make a big impact on the selling price, such as replacing caulk or grout, updating ceiling fans and light fixtures or changing doorknobs and switch plates.
  • Scents of Smelliness. Don’t ignore unpleasant odors in the air.
  • Sparkle and Shine.  Showcase a well-maintained home to potential buyers by deep cleaning from top to bottom.
