An open house is an occasion when prospective home buyers can come by your house for a first-hand view of its features. You can do this on your own or you could let an experienced real estate pro handle it. It is highly recommended to prepare the house a month or so before the big day. Here are things you could do to make the house sellable to home buyers.
Apply Necessary Repairs
Whether it is a leaking pipe, a loose gutter, or a crack on the floor, small details will matter during an open house. Understand that home buyers will be like hawks, checking every detail
of the house, making sure it is in good shape. If you have an outdoor concrete space that may have damage or is unpleasant to look at, decorative concrete is an ideal solution. It only takes one to three days to revamp your concrete surfaces. An overlay or coating can immediately be installed on a pool deck, patio, or driveway to make it look new and function better.
Create Dreamy Rooms
Each room must make a home buyer feel like he or she is walking into a magazine. Aside from cleaning the place up, add some accents to make the room look more relaxing and beautiful. It can be a vase of fresh flowers, some scented candles, matching curtains and beddings, or anything that will make a room dreamy.
Prepare Some Goodies
Prepare some cupcakes or donuts and some coffee or juice for visitors who would come to see the house. You must also prepare some candies or kiddie snacks for visitors who have their kids with them. Not only will these keep the kids busy while the parents look around, it would also be a meaningful effort that will make the house memorable.
Have Brochures Ready
Make sure that every visitor gets a copy of your brochure when they come to see the house. The brochure must have a photograph of your house and your contact information. Do not just photograph your home and the rooms inside. Hire a pro to do it for you. This way, the best features can be enhanced and highlighted.
Selling a house is not an easy task. Make sure that you fix up your home to make it more appealing and functional. Do not ever mention features that don’t exist or work. An open house will reveal the truth so be as sincere as you could be.
