Do's & Don'ts: Open House Edition

With the sizzlin' market and buyers flooding listings as soon as they go live, an open house can be a smart way to catch 'em all in one fell swoop. ⁣

Here are a few 2021 dos and don’ts for your open house.⁣

•Declutter, declutter, declutter (your agent may even recommend staging).⁣
•Clean like crazy.⁣
•Get rid of lingering smells from carpets, pets, or sinks. Have a friend do a thorough “smell check.”⁣
•Put away personal photos and belongings.⁣
•Provide light refreshments but make sure drinks are sealed and snacks are individually wrapped.⁣

•Hover like a helicopter parent. Give buyers space to see your home without the pressure of your presence.⁣
•Schedule an open house during a holiday weekend or community-wide event. If you can be flex, check the weather and wait for a sunny day.⁣
•Forget about curb appeal.⁣
•Leave your pets at home.⁣
•Park your cars in the driveway. ⁣
