Yes, even in this seller's market, you too can blow your open house and ruin your chances of finding a buyer.
I took a look for HSH.com at some of the biggest mistakes sellers should be on guard against when opening up their homes to hopefully eager but reliably critical buyers.
The pros out there definitely have their pet peeves and it's worth your while to leverage their experience rather than learning the hard way, by trial and error. After all, your home will only be new to the market once - recycled listings aren't hard to spot.
And please, spare us all the cheesy music - I went to one open house in Millis where I felt like I had just walked onto the floor of carefully stage home decor shop in the mall.
Nothing reeks of desperation like an overeager seller. In fact, make yourself scarce on the big day and take your pets with you.
Above all, don't hover!
