As a home seller, you'll want to do whatever you can to prepare your residence for an open house. By doing so, you can transform your ordinary home into an exceptional one, thereby increasing the likelihood of making an unforgettable first impression on large groups of open house guests.

What does it take to get a residence ready for an open house? Here are three tips to help you update your home, and ultimately, host a memorable open house.

1. Declutter Your Home as Much as Possible

If your hallways, bedrooms and other home areas are loaded with clutter, now is the perfect time to get rid of various unnecessary items. That way, you can show off the true size and beauty of your living space.

For those who have antiques, photographs and other items they want to keep, it may be worthwhile to rent a storage unit. Or, friends and family members may be able to hold on to some of your belongings until you sell your house.

On the other hand, if there are items you need to eliminate immediately, you can always host a yard sale or list items online. You may be able to donate items that are in good condition to local charities as well.

2. Perform Home Exterior Maintenance

Let's face it Ė no one wants to buy a home with a messy front lawn or cracked siding. However, a home seller who allocates the necessary time and resources to identify home exterior issues can resolve such problems without delay.

Spend some time evaluating your house's exterior Ė you'll be glad you did. With a close look at your home's exterior, you can establish home maintenance priorities.

Then, get to work. Perform all necessary home exterior repairs, and you can boost your home's chances of making a positive first impression on homebuyers who visit during an open house.

3. Collaborate with a Real Estate Agent

When it comes to preparing for an open house, there's a lot to consider. Fortunately, a real estate agent can help you keep things in perspective and ensure your open house is an instant success.

A real estate agent will teach you everything you need to know about an open house. He or she will offer expert tips to help you get your residence ready for an open house, along with provide insights into what you should expect following the event's completion.

Of course, a real estate agent is happy to help you at each stage of the home selling journey too. This housing market professional will do whatever it takes to help you list a home, price it accordingly and promote it to the right groups of homebuyers consistently.

Make your open house a joyous occasion for both you and potential homebuyers. Use the aforementioned tips, and a home seller can revamp a house's interior and exterior and ensure a residence makes a long-lasting impression on homebuyers.

If youíre in the process of selling your home, your agent will most likely be making calls to you relating that she will be showing your home to potential buyers. While youíre probably excited to sell your home, thereís no doubt that home showings can happen at the worst possible times! Hereís some tips to help you prepare for any home showing in a hurry: 


Mop Up


Sweep up your kitchen and bathrooms Spot clean in any necessary areas to remove stains.   


Get Out Your Duster


Quickly wipe down any of your furniture, televisions, screens and other objects that really show dust in your home. You donít need to go crazy, just make sure that everything is clean.  


Clear Counters


Donít leave tons of stuff hanging around on your counters. Your counters should be wiped down and clear of clutter for your home showing. 


Make Your Bed


Heed your motherís advice and make your bed. Thereís nothing more unattractive at a home showing than beds that havenít been made or items strewn across the bedroom. If you have some time, take a look at your bedding and see if it looks presentable, as in free from rips and stains. If not, consider replacing the existing bedding for an even better impression. 


Vacuum 


Give your carpets a once over with the vacuum cleaner. This will pick up any surface dirt and make the carpets look, smell and feel fresher.


Empty The Trash


Empty all of your trash cans. Spray them down with a disinfectant spray so that thereís no lingering odors.   


Brighten It Up


When your home is being shown, the lights should be on. A bright home is an attractive home! 

Clean Your Dishes


Put all of your dirty dishes in the dishwasher. There shouldnít be any dirty dishes left out and around during a home showing. Also, you donít want any of your appliances running while potential buyers are visiting.  


Put Clothes Away


Your clothes should be loaded into the washer and dryer as well. No dirty (or clean) clothes should be lingering around the house. Potential buyers donít need to see the latest styles that youíre wearing!


Put Your Stuff Away 


Every room should be given a once over. Everything should be off of the floors, counters and furniture. This will make your home look very presentable and attractive to buyers. 


Although a home showing may seem overwhelming, buyers like to picture what your home will look like once theyíre the new occupants. The short amount of time that you spend on making your home look tidy can make a big difference in finding the right buyer for your property.
