To make a great open house, it is important to take into consideration several factors that can make it into a success. A successful open house can be achieved if you have the correct strategies and the ability to make it into a good one.

Below are several ways to make your open house successful:

  1. Select the right date — when you plan on the date of your open house, make sure to check the calendar to avoid conflicts with special events or holidays such as the Super Bowl Sunday or Mother’s Day. Scheduling it with big events might result into a lesser turnout.

  2. Remove the clutter in your home — get rid of all the clutter in your house, especially in notorious places such as the closets and the basement. You may donate your old clothes to charity or hold a garage sale before your open house schedule. You might have to do a garage sale before leaving anyway, so why not do it now?

  3. Create some main spaces — consider moving a few large items like the furniture out of sight temporarily. You can put them for the mean time in your in-law’s house or over at your friend’s. Remember that when it comes to a good showing, less is better. You would naturally like to create a spacious feel and an easy flow of traffic for your visitors.

  4. Clean up your home — make sure that everything around your house is cleaned, dusted and polished. A well-kept appearance creates a favorable impression on homebuyers. Allow fresh and clean air in by opening the windows.

  5. Lighten up by cleaning up — for walls land woodwork, a fresh coat of paint never fails to do wonders on a home. Select neutral and light colors to make an illusion of spaciousness. Pull back the drapes, open the blinds and leg light into your open house.

  6. Create a curb appeal — ensure that the exterior appears well maintained just like the interior. Mow your lawn, shovel the sidewalk, sweep the steps and clean out the doors and front windows.

  7. Market your home with the pros — your real estate agent helps create a promotion plan with different marketing techniques. Whether it is special signage, direct mail, e-marketing, print advertising or website promotion, it takes a full range of techniques to properly promote your open house.

  8. Ask the experts — your realtor can give you advice on how to best present your home. Leaving on the lights, playing soft background music, fire burning in the fireplace and a coffee brewing all creates a welcoming atmosphere and impression in your home.

  9. Spread the word — tell neighbors and friends to promote the open house. There are also wonderful places in your area to put house flyers such as the grocery store, library and the skating rink.

  10. Get out of your house during your open house and stay out — you will get better results when your visitors feel free to poke about, linger around your house and ask direct questions from your agent. Possible buyers might feel constrained if you are around the property. So pack the dogs and the kids and enjoy the day. Trust your real estate agent to handle the job well; after all, they are experts in this field.
