5 Tips for Home Opens by Jon Bahen
Create a killer home open!
There are many ways to make your property stand out at home opens. Below are 5 tips to get you started!
Prepare the garden early! It takes a long time to get a good garden, so make sure it’s nice and tidy.
Light and air! Open all of the windows, open the curtains to get some light and air flowing through the house. Scented candles are great but make sure there are no dog or cigarette smells around.
Tidy up inside and clean! You’d be surprised what people look at when they come through a home open. They will open the kitchen draws…I don’t know why! But, they will look into every space so make sure all of that clutter is put away.
Colour! Add some colour into the house, whether it be through art, cushions, or rugs. Even employ a stylist through to give you some tips on how best to decorate. You don’t have to spend a lot of money; borrow it, buy it or hire it.
Make yourself scarce! Leave the agent to run the home open for you. Don’t be seen by buyers hanging around the front of the property, it will just make them feel uncomfortable. Also, do not come home early because if buyers are hanging around, it’s a great sign that they are interested in your property and it will make them feel uncomfortable if they feel they are keeping you from coming home.
