Open House Checklist

Open House Checklist

Holding your house “open” is an excellent opportunity for potential buyers and/or their friends and family to view or re-view your house.  Because word of mouth can be an excellent resource for getting a house sold, it is important that we work together to put your house’s “best foot forward.” The following checklist will help us do just that.

Outside

  • Review everything you did to get your house’s exterior ready for sale and update as necessary
  • Remove all cars from the driveway
  • Make sure windows are clean and sparkling
  • Stow all garbage cans and visible pet supplies.

Inside

  • Tidy closets and kitchen cupboards
  • Discard as many outdated items in the refrigerator as possible
  • Secure all prescription medicines
  • Clear all surfaces of everything but a few, simple decorative items
  • Have professional cleaners in the morning of the open house
  • Open all window shades and, weather-permitting, open windows
  • Replace all burnt-out and low wattage light bulbs with high-wattage bulbs.
