Before your Open House, please prepare your home and property for guests. This infographic will identify specific areas that buyers are looking for, and areas that the homeowner should protect during the sales process.
Is your property well lit from the road?
Are the sidewalks safe?
Is there any rot on the porch or deck?
Has the house been cleaned?
Do all of your appliances work?
Have you upgraded the electrical outlets to GFCI?
There are many areas of your house that you have neglected. It's not just you, everyone has areas that are cluttered, or dirty. Think about the last time that you went to your friends house. Are they hoarders? Are their windows dirty? Is their garage clean? Have their toilets and showers ever been cleaned?
Print out this chart and take it with you while you walk around your house. You will be glad that you did when your first sales offer comes in.
