Open House Guidelines

When your agent announces that they are holding an open house at your New Orleans home, it’s time to review the best practices. Here’s our open house guidelines that will help you showcase your home in the best possible ways.

  • Grind half a lemon or orange in the garbage disposal
  • Make sure all of the toilet seats and lids are down
  • Empty every trash can and put them away out of site
  • Open curtains to let as much natural light in as possible
  • Wipe down all sinks, faucets, and mirrors
  • Empty the dishwasher
  • If you are using fresh flowers make sure they are fresh and not wilted
  • Make sure all of your green plants are tended to and look their best
  • Turn on all of the lights in the house
  • Turn on classical music on low volume
  • Close the shower curtains
  • Fluff up the pillows and bedspreads
  • Sweep off the front porch
  • Shut all the closet doors
  • Be sure that everything is off the floor (clothes, toys, papers, vacuum, ironing board, etc.)
  • Put away all mail or newspapers
