5 Last Minute Checks to do Before Your Open House

Last minute panic before open house? Here’s 5 final checks to do around your home and garden so you can be certain it’s in tip top shape when potential buyers arrive.

Closets and drawers
People may open your closets and drawers to see how much space they offer so make sure members of your household haven’t hurriedly stored items in them. If you find bits and pieces at the last minute place them in a clothes basket or box and ask a neighbour to store them until the open house is over.

Dust and cobwebs
Don’t forget to look up! Have you checked ceiling fans, the top of your fridge, above door and window frames and above curtains for dust and cobwebs?

Surfaces
Are your surfaces gleaming? Do a final wipe over of everything to make sure there are no fingerprints or left over food particles. Don’t forget to check windowsills, tops of appliances and skirting boards.

Garden
While the inside of your home will likely be where you concentrate your efforts, don’t neglect the outside. Walk around your outdoor area and check for weeds, dead flowers, uncoiled hoses, rubbish, overgrown paths, toys and other errant objects lying around. Lawns should be freshly mown and paths swept.

Bins
All household bins should be empty and smell fresh. Don’t forget to clean inside and around the outside of the bin with disinfectant.
