Preparing for Your Open House


Open houses are part of the process in selling your home as quickly as possible at the right price. It is very uncomfortable to have potential buyers who are complete strangers walk around your home. Preparing your home for your open house would help you have peace of mind. The evening before your open house, you should put all your valuables away in a safe place which include money, jewelry, credit cards, keys, personal papers, prescription drugs, weapons and any other sentimental items. The day of the open house you should turn on some lights and open blinds to let light in. Most agents walk with potential buyers especially when one does not accompany them, but you can ask him or her to accompany potential buyers around the home. Everyone should sign in the Open House sheet and agents should leave their business card. Once the open house is over, the homeowner and agent should go through the home turning off lights and making sure the home is safe and secure.
