Ten Ways to Make Your Home Irresistible at an Open House

  1. Put fresh or silk flowers in principal rooms for a touch of color.
  2. Add a new shower curtain, fresh towels, and new guest soaps to every bath.
  3. Set out potpourri or fresh baked goods for a homey smell.
  4. Set the table with pretty dishes and candles.
  5. Buy a fresh doormat with a clever saying.
  6. Take one or two major pieces of furniture out of every room to create a sense of spaciousness.
  7. Put away kitchen appliances and personal bathroom items to give the illusion of more counter space.
  8. Lay a fire in the fireplace. Or put a basket of flowers there if it’s not in use.
  9. Depersonalize the rooms by putting away family photos, mementos, and distinctive artwork.
  10. Turn on the sprinklers for 30 minutes to make the lawn sparkle.
