Tip Tuesday: 11 STEPS TO A SUCCESSFUL OPEN HOUSE

  1. HIRE A CLEANING SERVICE- Spruce up the entire house, including often overlooked spots like baseboards, picture frames, ceiling fans, etc.
  2. NEUTRALIZE ODORS- Shampoo carpets. Clean drapes. Air out house. Add potpourri or scented candles and diffusers.
  3. DEPERSONALIZE ROOMS- Remove family photos. Clear items from the refrigerator door and bulletin board.
  4. ORGANIZE CABINETS AND DRAWERS- Clutter makes it appear that the home doesn’t have enough storage.
  5. HANDLE MINOR REPAIRS- Fix sticky doors, torn screens, burned-out light bulbs, cracked caulking, dripping faucets, etc.
  6. PROTECT BELONGINGS- Remove or lock up valuables and medications.
  7. TIDY UP OUTDOORS- Cut grass, rake leaves, add new mulch, trim bushes, edge walkways. Also, consider a pot of bright flowers near the entry to boost curb appeal.
  8. CLEAR CLUTTER- Empty counters, cut down on decorative items, thin clothes in closets, clean garage.
  9. REMOVE PETS.
  10. BRIGHTEN ROOMS- Replace burnt bulbs and consider higher wattage in low-light areas. Clean windows and screens, and replace heavy curtains with sheers to bring in more light.
  11. ADD COLOR- Put out colorful new towels and add flowers to give rooms some “pop”.
