What You Should Do to Prepare for an Open House

If you're getting ready to host your first open house, you may have some questions about the best way to present your home. Before you open up your home to strangers in hopes of making a sale, use these tips to get your home looking its best.

Declutter Your Home

One of the first things you should do to prepare your home is a bit of decluttering. Your home may be comfortable in its current set up, but that doesn't mean it's laid out in the most attractive way. Go around each room and look for items that can be removed to make the space look bigger, more welcoming, and tidy. One example is removing appliances from the countertops in order to make the kitchen look tidy and clean.

Remove Personal Items

Next, look for personal items in your home that can turn off potential buyers. Things like family photos, trophies, and even your child's art can make it harder for interested buyers to picture themselves living in the home since it looks like it belongs to someone else. Take these items down for the open house so they have a blank canvas to picture themselves in.

Store Your Valuables

Finally, don't forget to remove your most valuable items from the home and store them somewhere offsite. It's easy to believe that potential buyers going into your home will be honest, but you can't be too sure so it's best to play it safe.
