While you set up your home for your 1st open house event, be sure to look at it through the eyes of a possible buyer. Make sure that the entire home is clean and that it appears welcoming. Turn on all the lights in the home to be certain that every area appears welcoming and warm. Where you can, do a bit of staging. This can include putting some books on a coffee table, or placing a few fresh flowers on the kitchen table. Most families take the time to make some baked goods or fresh bread to give the residence a inviting and warm atmosphere.
