How Should I Prepare My Naperville Home’s Exterior For An Open House?
When your broker has an open house to entice potential homebuyers to consider your Naperville home for sale, you have a perfect opportunity to set the stage for an impressive experience that can keep your house at the top of their lists. Keep in mind that your objective here is to impress your potential homebuyers by presenting both the inside and the outside of the home in its best light. The importance of curb appeal can’t be emphasized enough, especially since its the first thing they see as they drive up to the house.
Professional “staging” may include the exterior, but if you’re doing it all yourself, try the five things outlined in this video.
1 – Landscape & lawn.
That’s the first impression; make it a good one.
Mow, prune, edge and get rid of junk!
2 – Paint And Clean!
You don’t have to do the whole house, but the front door and lintels should either be painted or cleaned.
3 – Leaks & Repairs
Small visible problems can become large mental objections and change how someone feels about your house.
Fix ‘em beforehand.
4 – Pets
Some people have allergies and concerns.
Time for Fido to visit a friend.
You weren’t including him with the house anyway.
5 – Get Fresh Eyes
Have your REALTOR®, or a friend who’s willing to be candid, tell you what you missed. Or pay a staging professional for a report.
We don’t really see familiar things well – so let them be your ‘test buyer’ so you can present the best first impression to the real ones.
