An open house can have a significant impact on the property selling journey. As such, it is important for a property seller to allocate time and resources to prepare for an open house. If a seller plans for an open house, he or she may be able to boost the likelihood of a fast, profitable property selling experience.

Now, let's take a look at three things that every seller needs to know about open houses.

1. There is no shortage of open houses held on weekends in cities and towns nationwide.

Many open house events are held throughout the year in cities and towns across the country. These events commonly take place on weekends and enable sellers to showcase their residences to dozens of prospective buyers at the same time.

Ultimately, it is important to find ways to differentiate a home from the competition. If a seller can promote his or her residence to the right groups of potential buyers, this individual may be able to convince buyers to attend one open house over another.

2. An open house gives a seller a great opportunity to make a positive first impression on buyers.

As a seller, it is paramount to embrace the opportunity to connect with buyers. An open house allows a seller to do just that, as it ensures this individual can provide buyers with a stress-free opportunity to view his or her residence.

When it comes to getting ready for an open house, it generally is a good idea to clean both inside and out. Also, a seller should perform home repairs and remove home clutter. Because with a neat, tidy residence, a seller can make it easy for buyers to envision what life may be like if they decide to purchase a particular residence.

3. Every open house provides a seller with a valuable learning experience.

Regardless of how much a seller prepares for an open house, there is no telling how this event will turn out. However, a seller who sets realistic expectations for an open house can plan accordingly.

In the worst-case scenario, no buyers will attend an open house. If this happens, there is no need to worry. In fact, a seller can learn from the experience and use it to find new ways to promote his or her residence to prospective buyers going forward.

For those who need help selling a home, it may be beneficial to hire a real estate agent. In addition to helping you get your residence ready for an open house, a real estate agent will offer tips and guidance so you can achieve the optimal property selling results. Perhaps best of all, if you ever have concerns or questions during the home selling journey, a real estate agent is ready to address them at any time.

Streamline the home selling process – hire a real estate agent today, and you can receive comprehensive assistance as you navigate each stage of the property selling journey.

When selling a home, most sellers are eager to sell quickly. Especially when living out of their home while simultaneously showing it. One of the biggest determinant factors for house shoppers right now is the staging. Whether they recognize it or not the atmosphere you create within your house helps buyers imagine themselves living their day to day within its walls. It creates a canvas for them to dream up all the memories they will create in their new home.

But keeping your home staging level clean and organized at all times while living out of it isn’t the easiest of tasks. Afterall, there’s a reason all of our homes don’t look like the inside pages of a home decor magazine.

If you want to put your home’s best “foot” forward, however, it, literally, pays to put in the time and effort to live differently for a few weeks.

Here are a few tips on how to get your house show-room ready:

Start with a deep clean. Some people like to hire a cleaning company to come in and do the job for them. But there’s no reason you can’t get the same results on your own. Plan to dedicate a week to clean your home top to bottom and a whole lotta elbow grease to get every nook and cranny.

Give your home a facelift. Repaint your walls, rent a carpet cleaner (or hire a service) and power wash the exterior. When repainting considers switching to a modern, neutral color palette to appeal to prospective buyers.    

Declutter, declutter, declutter! This is a step many sellers dread but is so worth the effort. Donate and get rid of everything you no longer use or need. When you’re finished go the extra step and rent a storage unit to stash away extra furniture, off-season items, and family mementos.

You want to create as much space in your home as possible. Taking a minimalist approach that strips your unique personality from the decor allows potential buyers to see how the house can become theirs. You don’t want to distract buyers and have them wonder about what kind of people you and your family are. Additionally, keep closets, drawers, and cabinets tidy because they will get opened! And keep desk and counter surfaces clear of paperwork and other stuff we always seem to allow to accumulate in these spaces.

Add greenery. Potted plants and fresh cut blooms will be like the icing on the cake. This is always what makes the biggest difference in making a room feel pulled together and comfortable. If you’ve ever flipped through the pages of a home decor magazine you may have noticed this is a trick they use in all of the rooms they showcase.

Living out of your home while showing it isn’t a walk in the park, but it can be easy if you are prepared ahead of time. These simple tips will put you ahead of the competition and have bidders in no time!
