Top Tampa Open House Prep Hacks

Top Tampa Open House Prep HacksOpen house prep equals junk removal. It’s really that simple. Think about all those reality TV shows where sellers are panicked. The real estate professional tells them to get rid of the junk, declutter as much as possible, and depersonalize. Junk removal is the key to open house prep because there’s just too much stuff.

Exterior Preparation

For an open house to pay off, you’ve got to take care of the whole property. That includes the front and back porches. It’s a good idea to power wash or pressure wash the entire exterior. And, to tidy up the front and back porches. They should look open and inviting. Plant some colorful flowers and spread mulch where it looks best. Also, be sure to clear out the garage and organize it.

Few buyers want to buy a house sight unseen. Holding an open house is a great way to get many potential buyers through the door and show off your polished, picture-perfect home. But first, you must make sure your home is ready to be seen. Buyers need to envision how they’ll use the available space, and that means staging your home so that it looks inviting but not too lived-in. --National Association of Realtors

Additionally, if there’s a shed, take the time to make it neat inside. Now, it doesn’t have to be completely dirt-free but it should also be well-organized. Simply put, the more organized the shed and garage are, the better.

Now, let’s get into the inside of the house. Here, it’s key to make as much of all space available as possible. In other words, maximize the empty space in all storage spaces so buyers will see how much storage space they gain.

  • Declutter completely. This ought to be a no-holds-barred, outright declutter with gusto. You need to reduce what’s stored in the closets, cabinets, and other storage areas down to about 30 percent of the space. This will give storage areas a sense of more space with plenty of functionality. Get the junk hauled away, right away.
  • Depersonalize. Don’t make the mistake of turning off buyers by trying to sell them your life. They simply aren’t interested. Instead, depersonalize the whole house and make it into a model home. Let them see it in an un-personalized way and you’ll benefit.
  • Make necessary repairs. Those holes in the wall where you took down a portrait, the broken electrical outlet plate, and the weatherstripping hanging from the bottom of the door. You’ve ignored them for long enough. It’s time to make any and all necessary repairs because buyers will notice everything that’s wrong.
