Trusted Realtor Shares Tips on How to Prepare for an Open House, Anchorage, Alaska

The most important part of selling a home is attracting potential buyers, which can be accomplished by holding an open house. According to a 2017 report by the National Association of Realtors®, more than 60% of Gen X home buyers have visited one. This process gives buyers the opportunity to explore the property without having to make an appointment. John Collinge , a realtor in Anchorage, AK, offers some tips on preparing for an open house.  

Realtor Gives 3 Tips on Preparing for a Successful Open House

realtor1. Clear Up Any Clutter

When there’s too much clutter, potential buyers may find it difficult to visualize their own life in the space. Remove political or religious items. This is a big deal with many buyers. If they do not agree with your views you run the risk of losing them.  Excess furniture creates congestion. Having too much can make your space look smaller than it is. Consider putting excess pieces of furniture in storage.

2. Enhance Your Property’s Curb Appeal

One of the first things that potential buyers will see when they arrive is your property’s yard, so make sure that it’s well kept. Before the day of the open house, trim the lawn and prune any bushes and trees. Clear the driveway and repaint faded or discolored walls to ensure that your home makes a good impression from the outside.

3. Print Out Marketing Flyers

 Choose some great photos of the home and have your Realtor include them in your marketing flyer. Make sure all pertinent information is stated, including the number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, square footage, available features, and other details. The main objective is to have things  remind them of your home and separate it from other properties they have viewed. 

Having the right guidance is absolutely essential to selling your home.  Get in touch with John Collinge from RE/MAX Dynamic Properties to.
