The Hassles of Hosting an Open House in St. Petersburg
If you’re looking to sell your St. Petersburg home through a traditional realtor, then, more likely than not, you’re going to have to host an open house. Although open houses can be a fantastic way to meet new people, there can also be a lot of hassles associated with them.
Below are a few of the obstacles you could face with hosting an open house.
1. Keeping Everything Clean
If you’re still living in your home because you haven’t moved yet, you’re going to have to clean up everything before you host an open house. If you’re taking the time to host an open house, you want your home to look it’s best so that it’s more likely to sell.
Making your home look immaculate before an open house can take a lot of time, and keeping it clean can be a challenge, especially if you have pets or small children.
2. Paying for Furniture to Stage the Home
If you’ve already moved into your new home, then you’ve most likely taken all of your pieces of furniture with you. When hosting an open house, it can be difficult for potential buyers to get a “feel” for the space if it’s completely empty.
To work around this feeling, many people will rent furniture to “stage” their home so people can get a better sense for the amount of furniture they can fit in the home.
Yet, if your home doesn’t sell right away, renting the furniture to stage your home can become a financial burden you might prefer to avoid.
3. Hosting Numerous Open Houses
Whether you’re still living in the house you’re attempting to sell, or you’ve already moved, if your home takes a while to sell, you’re going to have to host multiple open houses. Keeping your home clean, and organizing times for the open houses to happen, can be a major challenge.
