Open House Prep
At an open house, buyers will carefully size up a home. Here are a few details to pay particular attention to when prepping for an open house.
Is the paint chipped? Are the lighting fixtures covered in spiderwebs? The front door sets the tone for the rest of the house on whether this is a well-kept home or one that lacks maintenance.
Visitors are undoubtedly going to open cabinets under sinks. Is there evidence of leaking under the sinks? Make sure the plumbing is up to par.
Every home has a scent, whether good or bad. Homeowners can become nose blind to the scent their home is projecting, but newcomers will notice.
Foggy windows indicate a problem with the sealing. Make sure the windows open and close properly in an older home.
