    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

    • Review everything you did to get your house’s interior ready for sale and update as necessary
    • Make arrangements to board pets away for the day
    • 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    • Discard as many outdated items in the refrigerator as possible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.
