Do-it-yourself Open House Tips

  • Safety is always your top priority

- Do not hold an open house alone

- Be aware of potential dangers from allowing strangers in

- Have an escape route. Do not allow a stranger to be between you and the door

  • Treat everyone as a potential buyer

  • Watch what you say because your comments may hinder your negotiations later

  • Stay out of the way. Be in the background, not the main attraction. Prospects need to focus on the house not on whether or not they like you

  • Have your home fully ready, looking and smelling great

  • Declutter and clean

  • Let the light shine in

  • Have a new welcome mat out

  • Offer refreshments - fresh baked cookies add the bonus of a welcoming smell in the home 

  • Have a sign-in sheet 

  • Put away valuables 

  • Send the pets and the kids to a friends house to reduce distractions

  • Advertise - invite neighbors and use signs

  • Have a professionally printed brochure ready to pass out with a floorplan,  amazing photos, and a perfect write-up

  • listen to feedback

  • Ask an agent to host
