How to make the most of your open house

Okay, you’re almost ready to have your first open house…but wait is there something you forgot? Take a deep breath…what’s that smell and how do we get rid of it? You’ve taken care of the major stuff already, cleaning, de-clutering replacing burnt out bulbs and on the  last minute run through what areas should you make sure are perfect. As a home stager I am often called in to help clients prep their homes for the open house or for the photographs and virtual tour prior to selling their homes in the Brampton, Caledon, GTA area. At my initial consultation for home staging I will create a to-do list for the client or as I call it their homework, before putting the house on the market. We only get one chance to make a great first impression. That’s where home-staging comes in !

Make sure your home is spotless…yes it really makes a difference, people get that you take care of the home

Fresh flowers …check adds a nice ambience to your space

Soft contemporary music playing in the background …ahh relaxing

Kitty litter and fluffy’s toys hidden in the garage

Personal papers  and jewellery tucked away….

Remove vehicles from the driveway

Open all the drapes and blinds

Turn on every light in the house

Have some snacks or light refreshments

This is the perfect chance to find out what buyers and realtors are thinking, so you can improve your homes appeal.
