Our REALTORS® know that a potential buyer's first impression of a home is crucial and can make a difference in their perception of the house as a whole. Investing a little time and effort with these simple tips can yield impressive results in how your home looks to the outside world 

Start With the Basics

  • Safe and Clean Walkways and Steps: Keep your walkways, steps and entryway clear of snow, ice and debris such as leaves and limbs to make guests and buyers feel welcome and safe when approaching your home.

Getting Ready for an Open House - Wright-Patt Realty

Holding an open house can be an effective way to showcase your home, but proper marketing and staging are essential to ensure you put forth the best presentation possible. These five tips from our REALTORS® can help you attract more potential buyers and make your open house a resounding success.  

  1. Marketing, Marketing, Marketing
    A vast majority of homebuyers use the internet to search for property, so having an online listing that stands out from the crowd is vital. Work with your realtor to create an engaging online and social media profile for your home: In addition to listing it on the MLS, put an ad in the Craigslist housing section and use social media and community sites like Nextdoor to promote your home. Work with your realtor to identify the parts of your home that will most appeal to buyers. Clean and stage your home inside and out before posting any pictures, and make sure to highlight its best features and all the benefits the neighborhood has to offer.
