How To Prepare The Inside for an Open House? For many homes and markets, professional help from someone in staging makes good financial sense. Check your staging options first if you’re doing it yourself. Here are five key tips:
You want the buyer to envision this house being their home. Remove the things that make it your home: photos, awards, collections, and other stuff.
2. Move the stuff
Now it’s tempting to shove things in closets and attics, but your prospective buyer will see a much smaller house if those spaces are full. Move it to a storage space or a friend’s garage.
3. Warm it up
Baking bread or cookies, adding fresh flowers and colorful pillows and throws are touches used by professional stagers to make a place warm without your stuff.

4. Light it up
Light sells homes, clean windows inside and out, light bulbs all working, and curtains open or even gone.
5. Go away
Don’t hover; leave. Pack for a day trip and have your realtor tell you when to return. Buyers won’t envision themselves buying if you’re around.
Depersonalize and move stuff out; warm it up and light it up; then leave and let your realtor do their job.
