Open inspections are a unique opportunity to best showcase your property to potential buyers - it’s your time to shine! Here are some must do activities to get done before you open your home for the first time.
Remove personal items
It’s important to remove yourself from your home. Potential buyers want to imagine themselves living there - and this can be kind of difficult with family portraits, clutter and toys lying around. It’s best to take away as many of your personal items as possible and make your home a clutter free zone.
Take your pets out with you for the day
While it’s super trendy to have pets at the moment - it’s less trendy to visit an open inspection with someone else’s dog. It can also be incredibly stressful for your furry friends, so be sure to take them along with you when you leave the house for the open inspection day.
Tidy up your home
Most of us live in our homes - using countertops for storage or making the fridge a place to frame memories. However, for open inspection, you want your home to showcase itself. Clutter can make a space feel smaller and more cramped - so tidy up, declutter and clean your house before the showing.
Make your house welcoming
There are many ways to make your home feel more welcoming - but one of the trendy ways to do so now is by having indoor plants.
Trust your agent
There’s no need for you to have a presence at the open inspection - your agent will have everything under control! Your property agent will also be able to give you the best advice for your local area.
