Although moving to a new home is a fun and exciting time for any family, it is not without its fair share of stress and hard work. As you begin the process of selling your current home, you will need to prepare your space for an open house with cleaning, organizing, and staging to showcase the very best of your home for potential buyers. If you are looking to prepare your home for a summer open house, consider these five easy steps as you organize your space.
Polish Your Exterior for a Great First Impression
One of the most important aspects of your preparations should be your landscaping and exterior updates, as they are what create your curb appeal for a great first impression. Enhance your outdoor space with beautiful flowers, a well-maintained lawn, and a seasonal wreath on the door to make your house look warm and welcoming to a potential buyer upon their arrival.
Thoroughly Clean Every Room
Ensure that every room in your house is sparkling with a thorough cleaning upon the arrival of your potential buyers. If you are feeling overwhelmed at the thought of doing it all on your own, you may want to consider the help of a professional cleaning service to give you a jump start on a deep clean for your home.
Get Creative with Staging Your Furniture
Summer is a great time to stage your home, as you can get creative with seasonal touches, furniture, and accessories to showcase every room of your home. While your furniture arrangements should be open and simple, a small accessory in each room, such as a vase of flowers, is perfect for showing off the personality and charm of your home.
Eliminate Clutter and Personal Items
As you make your final preparations for your open house, make sure that your house is free of clutter and personal items that may detract from the room. Because you want your buyers to the very best of each room, be sure to simplify the number of items that are on display.
Use Natural Light to Showcase Your Floor Plan
Not only is natural light the most visually appealing light for any room, but it is also great for making each room look larger and more open as potential buyers walk through your home. Before your open house, be sure to open the shades and let the light highlight your beautiful rooms as they are on display.
