Summer Open House Tips

As we enter into the busy summer market, it’s crucial to understand the unique opportunities this time of year presents for home sellers. This means not only showcasing the home’s interior, but also emphasizing the charm of summer living. Here are 10 TIPS to ensure your open house will provide a vision of the summer lifestyle potential buyers are sure to enjoy! Feel free to incorporate these tips into your agent newsletters to your clients!

  1. Set the A/C to a comfortable temperature and turn on ceiling fans.
  1. Let in as much natural light as possible, and clean the windows inside and out to enhance the effect.
  1. Highlight the house’s potential for outdoor entertaining. Add punches of color with outdoor decor, and even stage a picnic or barbecue.
  2. Make sure the landscaping looks its best. Freshly cut grass, pruned shrubs, and colorful flowers make a powerful first impression. Power wash the sidewalk and driveway for a polished look.
  1. Offer cool refreshments such as iced tea, lemonade, or bottled water, and even light, summer-themed snacks.
  1. Play up the pool and make it the star. Clean it thoroughly, stage it with colorful towels, and even inflate a few pool toys.
  1. Use light, fresh, and summery scents to make the home appealing. Choose from fresh flowers, lightly scented candles, or diffusers.
  1. Add a few summer interior design touches to help remind buyers of the season, such as beach-themed accessories, a citrus centerpiece, or flowering house plants. 
  1. Consider late afternoon or evening showings to avoid the heat of the day, as well as allow you to showcase outdoor lighting or a stunning sunset view.
  1. Highlight energy-saving features which help homes stay cool in the summer, like energy-efficient windows, insulation, or a new air conditioning system.
