7 Steps To Open House Success

O.K. - It's time for your first Open House! Don't panic. Here are seven tips that will help you make your open house a success. Leave the rest up to your RE/MAX REALTORģ.

7 Steps to Preparing for an Open House

RE/MAX Valley Real Estate, Boardman, Ohio - Clean

1. Hire a cleaning service. A spotlessly clean home is essential; dirt will turn off a prospect faster than anything.

RE/MAX Valley Real Estate, Boardman, Ohio - Mow

2. Mow your lawn, rake your leaves, sweep your sidewalk, and be sure toys and yard equipment are put away.

RE/MAX Valley Real Estate, Boardman, Ohio - Bake

3. Serve cookies, coffee, and soft drinks. It creates a welcoming touch. But be sure the kitchen has been cleaned up; use disposable cups so the sink doesnít fill up

RE/MAX Valley Real Estate, Boardman, Ohio - Lock Up Valuables

4. Lock up your valuables, jewelry, and money. Although the real estate salesperson will be on site during the open house, itís impossible to watch everyone all the time - and they might return when the agent leaves.

RE/MAX Valley Real Estate, Boardman, Ohio - Turn On All The Lights

5. Turn on all the lights. Even in the daytime, incandescent lights add sparkle.

RE/MAX Valley Real Estate, Boardman, Ohio - Remove Pets

6. Send your pets to a neighbor or take them outside. If thatís not possible, crate them or confine them to one room (a basement or bath), and let the salesperson know where to find them.

RE/MAX Valley Real Estate, Boardman, Ohio - Leave

7. Leave. Itís awkward for prospective buyers to look in your closets and express their opinions of your home with you there.

Those are the basics. Now. . .

Make Your Home Irresistible!
