How to Host the Best Open House

Hosting an open house can be a great option for home sellers who don't have much time for individual home showings. They allow you to show your home to multiple interested buyers at once so that you don't have to take time out of your busy schedule. To host the best open house possible, use these tips.

Prepare a Fact Sheet

Once you've decided an open house is the right option for you, start preparing a home fact sheet. If you're not sure what this is, think of it as a piece of paper that lists the most important aspects of your home that will also be of interest to potential buyers. Basic things that should be included in your fact sheet are the property's address, the square footage, number of bathrooms, number of bedrooms, special features, and your contact information. Gathering this information isn't just useful for compiling your fact sheet, it can also be used when listing your home. For your open house, have plenty of these ready to hand out to potential buyers as they walk in.

Stage Your Home

Before the day of your open house arrives be sure your home is picture perfect. You will definitely have to clean and declutter your home in order to make a great first impression with potential buyers. Take this one step further by staging your home. Staging basically refers to setting up your interiors so that they make the house as appealing as possible. If you're not sure how to do this, look at interiors websites and magazines for inspiration.

Be a Great Host

As potential buyers start to arrive, be prepared to greet them. Prepare some snacks and seasonal drinks before they arrive so that they feel more welcome and at home. Introduce yourself to guests as they arrive and make yourself available to answer questions.
