5 Open House Staging Tips From Granite Falls' Leading Real Estate Agents, Granite Falls, Minnesota

If you've got a house for sale, you know how competitive the process of marketing your real estate to buyers can be. The experts at EXIT Realty Scenic Valley—a real estate agency based in Granite Falls, MN—say an open house is an important tool in this process.

If you want to achieve a quick and profitable sale, you’ll need to showcase your property in a persuasive light, and an open house will help achieve this end. There are steps you can take to ensure the open house staging process is handled effectively.   

Top 5 Tips For Staging An Open House 

1. Set A Cohesive Theme

Set a theme for your open house that is in sync with the design motif of your home. For example, if your home is a masterpiece of modern architecture, don't stage your property with antiques; instead, keep the theme going with contemporary accents and furnishings. 

Open house2. Don't Make It Personal

When potential buyers view your home, they want to be able to imagine themselves living in the space. Personal touches such as family portraits or vacation mementos will ruin this illusion. When staging an open house, keep the space generic. 

3. Declutter

Clutter of any kind is a bad idea when showing your property. Buyers are attracted to homes that are bright, spacious, and expansive, and clutter achieves the opposite effect; it will make your home seem dark, cramped, and small.  

4. Be A Clean Freak

Everybody loves a spotlessly clean home. If cleaning isn't your thing, hire a skilled professional cleaner to scrub your house from top to bottom before showing it to buyers. 

5. Keep Pets Out Of The Picture

Buyers want to imagine their pets bounding through the space you’re showing, not yours. Make sure your pets aren't roaming the halls when your property is being viewed.
