To make your open house stand out, you need to pack your things first

Keep in mind that you don’t want to leave the home entirely empty. When your potential buyers come inside, they are looking for a home-like feeling. That is the main thing that attracts them to a certain home. For this reason, make sure that you leave some small details. For example, fruit on the dining table or in the kitchen, flowers in the living room. Some paintings hanging on the walls, and so on. Don’t put too much decoration, but leave some. Also, when you pack everything up, it will be easier to declutter and clean everything. Which is also super important.

Garden or your backyard is the main key when you are staging your home

Believe it or not, one of the decisive things if a buyer is going to buy your home or not, is your garden or backyard. However you prefer to call it, but the outdoor of the house is very important. Especially for pet owners, and people with children. A garden is a place where the family can gather up on sunny days and warm nights. They can make barbecues there, watch starts, enjoy completely in peace. We all love having a cozy and comfortable place in the garden to read a book, or just sunbathe. For this reason, to make your open house stand out, make sure your garden is stunning. You need to get creative and make some new ideas that other competitors won’t have.

Also, since your items will be packed completely, don’t at any cost leave them in the house, and especially not in the garden. If you have a shack or a garage, don’t leave things there either. Instead, make sure you get storage bins and find the place where you will store everything until your relocation. If you have leaves falling around your garden, make sure you collect them. Make everything neet, and keep the plants alive. The nicer the garden, the bigger the possibility people will accept your offer.

Make your open house stand out by creating a theme

Not many people think of this because it is for sure not the most common thing, but creating a theme can play a big role. Your potential buyers will for sure check out many places before and after your house. And if they continue seeing more or less the same thing over and over again, they will be bored. This is where the theme comes. If they see something different, it will catch their attention and interest. For instance, if it is an autumn season, you can make everything autumn-like. With candles, small decorative lights, pumpkins, and so on. Also, if it’s Halloween, you can create something for that, and show them how the house is nice to decorate for holidays. The same for the winter season, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and so on. Of course, try not to exaggerate.

One more idea, which is even better to do, is to create decorations by yourself. Now, you will buy a lot of green moving supplies. And there is a huge possibility you will end up with some extras. You don’t need to throw them away. Instead, you can use them in a very creative way. For some very nice decorations that will help you with your buyers, to sell your home as soon as possible.

Don’t forget that signs and advertisements are very important as well

You should already know that people need to know about your open house so that you can come and visit. Because of this reason, your advertisement for the open house, and the signs you will put are very important. Now, social media is something that everyone uses in 2021, and each day it is becoming more and more popular. We simply cannot live without it anymore. And when staging a home, that is a huge opportunity. You can make a perfect advertisement and share it with your friends everywhere. And they can re-share it. Or, even better, you can pay for a sponsored ad, so everyone can see it. That will definitely bring you more buyers. And when you are putting up a sign, make sure it is noticeable, but not too much.

Create something that other houses don’t offer

Sometimes, creating something completely innovative and different can bring people’s attention. You can make your open house stand out by creating something inside, or outside of your home that other people don’t have. It can be anything. For instance, a net out of rope with small lamps that you use for Christmas, over some lazy bags somewhere in your garden. People like these aesthetic things and it can affect a lot on their decision whether to buy your home or not. Check online for some interesting ideas about what you can make.
