Open houses are very common if you are putting up your house for sale. In an open house, the house items need to be modeled in a way that it almost looks like a real life catalogue. There is a lot of effort that goes into staging your home for an open house. Here are easy tips by which you can set up your home for an open house, within no time at all.
- Start With Decluttering
It will be a lot easier for you to stage your home into an open house, if you have less things to work with. Since you are selling the house anyway, now is the right time to get rid of things that you don’t need and are just taking up extra space. Buyers don’t like cluttered houses and don’t find it appealing. They like a minimal layout of the home, where there is a lot of walking space and less things to bump into. So, if you haven’t thought about decluttering yet, don’t put it on hold for too long.
- Keep The Buyers In Mind
For an open house, you need to keep the priorities of the buyer in mind than yours, if you want to get a handful of buyers for your house. You need to keep the layout very basic and fit for any buyer. This is known as de-personalizing the space. So, removing any sentimental things like pictures, décor pieces, artwork, etc. is a good idea to make it look like the house is a catalogue, rather than a personal belonging. This may sound weird, but buyers tend to notice these things a lot.
- Clean Every Nook And Corner
For an open house, your house will go through many eyes and having a dusty and dirty space will be unappealing to any buyer. So, you have to break out your cleaning gloves and get cleaning like you have never done before. Cleaning effectively will leave a very good impression on the buyer. You need to clean the most unexpected of places for an open house, because the buyer will scan through the entire house. You don’t want to leave a bad impression of your house, because of its poor keeping. So, cleaning your house effectively should be one of your top priorities.
- Use AstroTurf
If you don’t want to spend hours cleaning up the yard, you can use astroturf to make it look beautiful in less time. Maintaining astroturf is also easier than real grass and you also don’t need to mow the lawn anymore.
