Selling your home can be stressful. Should you do an open house or not? Although an open house doesn’t always lead to a sale, it’s a great way to get your home out into the public eye. The more people that see your home, the better. Here are some open house tips for sellers.
Hire a Realtor

Whether it’s a date, a job interview or even an open house, first impressions play a big role! If buyers don’t like the look of your home from the outside,Â you’re going to be hard-pressed to get themÂ past the frontÂ door. Make the front of your home (and the front entry) look amazing! Get them in the door just because your home and front yard look stunning!

Clean and Declutter
Cleaning is something you ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO DO!Â Make sure there’s no dirt on the floor or grime on the counters. Do a thorough deep cleaning and make sure to declutter everything. Start decluttering now to help make the process easier when you get closer to the actual open house day.Â
Staging While Staying Minimal
You want to some furniture in your home to help potential buyers envision the space, but you want to stay minimal with this. Don’t clutter up the space with several pieces of large furniture, and don’t have shelves and walls filled. Leaving empty spaces is important too. The more open space, the bigger your home will look, which is what buyers want!Â
