Top 8 Open House Mistakes a Seller Can Make : When youre ready to sell your house, you will need to get it in its best possible condition, especially in todays competitive environment. An open house presents an opportunity to showcase the best features of your home and allows the potential buyers to get a feel for the property. If you re a fist time home seller, you may think of the open house as the point at which your Realtor waits until you leave, turns into a magician and with a flick of his/her wrist, completely transforms your home into something out of Bravos Million Dollar Listing. But here is the truth of it Your real estate agent is not practicing wizardry on the side. And you arent completely free of responsibility when it comes to the open house. In fact, although you arent present for the open house (and you never, ever should be, if you want to sell the home), there are still quite a few ways that you can mess it up and drive away potential buyers. These eight things could very negatively impact your chances of having a successful open house-and, potentially, the house sale. Leaving your pets at home/Open house mistakes Pets bring a lot of joy into our lives. Nevertheless, they can be a real problem when youre showing your home. This is true for several reasons. Logistically pets make things difficult because you will have to keep them separate from the potential buyers, who might not like pets and certainly cannot picture themselves living in a house that once housed cats or dogs. This means that you will have to block off areas of your home, a real no-no in an open house. Pets also behave unpredictably. The last thing you want is your pet leaving his/her mark on the floor right in front of the viewers or even scaring the potential buyers. Which could also prevent them from viewing rooms and prove to be a distraction overall. Take your pets to a friends for the day when youre showing your house. You should also do your best to eliminate any signs of pet habitation, including bedding, toys, smells and stains. Selling a house with pets takes extra consideration and care. There are some home buyers who will see any signs of pets as a complete turnoff. This is definitely one of the top open house mistakes you should avoid. Ignoring your kitchen needs/Open house mistakes You may be surprised by how many home owners ignore their kitchens when selling their house. Putting the dirty dishes in the sink doesnt make them invisible. Even if the rest of your house is staged to perfection, a repugnant kitchen will turn off the potential buyers-and that goes for the dishwasher too. The potential buyers will most likely want to investigate the fridge and open the dishwasher during the open house, hence its vital that you prepare your home accordingly: Clean and store the dishes, and remove any smelly food from your fridge. You should consider removing any kitchen appliance that can be neatly stored instead of being left on counter tops. The less clutter, the more spacious and inviting your kitchen will feel. If its an appliance that is used daily, such as a toaster or coffeepot, be sure to wipe it clean after each use. Open house mistakes made because of the Kitchen not showing well, can kill just about any deal. You should also ensure that you check out and clean the other rooms in your home, even those that you think the potential buyers will not bother checking out, such as the closets garage or laundry room. Because guess what? They totally will. You arent selling part of your home; you are selling your entire home; hence you should ensure that everything the potential buyers will see during the open house is in showcase condition. Not hiding your dirty bath towels/Open house mistakes Keeping the bath towels you have used (and intend to use again) tucked away in a closet benefits you two-fold: Not only does it make the bathroom look well staged, but it also keeps them free of germs and dirt from the days parade of viewers. Instead, swap in a clean set of decorative hand and bath towels for each open house. You do not want (people) wiping their dirty hands on the bath towels you wipe your body with. Cleaning solo/Open house mistakes When you think about how much money a house actually costs, its easy to understand why people expect cleanliness in an open house. Surprisingly, not everybody meets the mark when it comes to a clean house. If you have to hire a cleaning service to get the job done, do so. Professional cleaners will scrub all the hidden spots you may miss (think switch plates and base-boards), they can also help eliminate messes and odors that go back years. Preparing for showings is particularly important when there are potentially a large number of visitors dropping by for a look. Showing dirty, messy homes to potential buyers is by far the greatest mistake most sellers make when holding an open house. Not getting a second opinion/Open house mistakes After you have cleaned and staged your house, a blunt tongued neighbor can be a blessing. Over time, you can easily get used to odors and smells that may linger in your home, even after a thorough cleaning. You need a neutral third-party wholl tell you like its, not what you would like to hear. So do not be offended if the third-party tells you that your place stinks- literally or figuratively. You arent in a position to be all ego, you are trying to sell your home - and that is what you should focus on to avoid simple open house mistakes. Not maintaining the yard/Open house mistakes The front yard is the first thing the guests see, so ensure it is spotless. You want the potential buyers to focus on the curb appeal of your home - not your collection of yard tools. Additionally, objects strewed every which way can also be dangerous. You should also make sure that the grass is trimmed nicely and any bushes or flowers are in good shape. And unless its trash day, keep your bins out of sight. Nothing turns potential buyer off faster than a pile of trash and the thought of potential yard work. Dirty exterior/Open house mistakes Depending on where you live, the exterior of your house may gather a significant amount of grime as the seasons turn. You might not have noticed it if it occurred gradually, but visitors to the open house are sure to see the mildew and mold on the siding, the dingy windows and the clogged gutters. Like the homes interior, the exterior should be fresh and clean-looking if you want to impress the potential buyers. Dont make these simple to fix, open house mistakes. Photos, religious art, drugs and politics need to go/Open house mistakes When the potential buyers walk into your home, they should picture their family living in the house, not yours. They do not need to see your family photos or be able to tell your religious or political views as they walk through the house. These are huge open house mistakes. There is a reason home staggers de-personalize your house. Certainly, they want the buyers to visualize themselves living within its walls-but they also want to remove any ammunition that may be used against you during the negotiating process. One of the places to look is the medicine cabinet, which should be emptied during the open house. The same goes for family photos and things such as canes and walkers: For instance, if you are elderly, they may consider underbid your price under the assumption that you can no longer be able to take care of your house. Keeping the potential buyers from learning your personal details is not just good staging.

Building A House In Thailand? Some Facts You Should Know : Will Your Retirement House In Thailand Have Two Floors Or A Single Floor? This is maybe the most significant factors determining the cost and time needed to construct your house in Thailand. Until recent times Thai houses were traditionally designed with the living accommodation elevated from the ground on wood or concrete columns, or posts as the Thai refer to them. A normal Thai house may be constructed with, say, a dozen posts arranged in a three by four matrix, and this is called a twelve post house. Our own house in Pakchong (Pak Chong) where we plan to retire to, Thailand, is a sixteen post house (4 by 4 posts) and the upper story containing the living spaces is 3 meters above ground floor level. This is considerably more difficult to construct and more expensive than a single floored house building with all the accommodation on the ground floor. The difference between a Thai two storey house and a western one is that:- A western house usually has the living accommodation on the ground floor and the bedrooms on the second floor. A Thai house has the living accommodation and the bedrooms on the second floor. The ground floor if it has any rooms at all would probably be a utility area. The tradition of having elevated living accommodation in the Thai houses goes back hundreds of years and there are two reasons why this tradition developed:- 1) Rooms higher than ground floor level were safer from prowling animals like lions and tigers that were prevalent at the time and. 2) Much of Thailand is flat and prone to flooding. A house elevated on stilts (posts) is safe from flooding. My husband undoubtedly wanted a post house, and I adore it, but I would have been equally happy with a single storey house. My husband is paying the price of his decision to have a traditional Thai post house in terms of additional cost and longer time to construct. Therefore think with care if you actually must have a post house or if you can resign yourself to a one-floor construction which will be less costly and faster to construct. Bathroom With Bathtub Or Simple Shower Only Room This is one more choice that will shape the price and time to build your retirement house and yet again, it is a Thai compared to Western subject. Traditional style and typical Thai houses are usually not designed with a bath tub as is the norm in a western bathroom. Actually, my husband, who is British, did not want to have a bathtub, because he doesnt take a bath. He likes to take a shower so for this reason a straightforward shower room is all he wanted to have. Odd for a Thai, I love to relax in a bath tub filled with hot water and those aromatic bath salts or bubble bath. Consequently my husband has agreed to install a bath. Seeing he wanted to have a walk-in shower room, we will be having two bathrooms, one for myself with a bath, WC and hand wash basin, the other a shower room with hand wash basin and shower only. Yet again, the choices are made as a result of posing the question Who is the house for? Type Of Kitchen - Thai Style Or Avant-Garde Western Style Kitchen The style of kitchen you make your mind up to design for is one more topic that always has a large influence on the cost of the house. Normally a whole lot of preparation of Thai food for cooking is done at floor level. I mean sitting on the floor, whether floor level is at ground floor level or second floor level. Whilst we have a customary western standard kitchen in our home in England, I still put the crock on the floor to pound the cooking ingredients. In addition, Thai food is very often cooked on a single gas ring (or even a charcoal fire), or sometimes two heat sources, but no more than that. According to this food preparation and cooking approach, Thai kitchens historically are very plain affairs, and are without the long worktops and ovens, grilles, integrated sinks and integrated cupboards and appliances that practically every western kitchens has. In fact so simple are Thai kitchens that kitchens even in new Thai houses, are often not constructed as an enclosed room, instead they are a minimal exterior area perimeter wall with a roof and maybe a simple counter-top. It follows that if you are building a Thai-style house you do not have to pay for a western style kitchen with all the luxurious fittings that are expected in a modern western house. In Thailand, as a westerner, you must have a refrigerator but countless Thai kitchens do not contain a fridge or a freezer nor clothes or dish washing machines. Yet again, our retirement house in Thailand is planned with a western style kitchen, including a long granite counter-top and integral dual sink, fridge and freezer. Installing cupboards, drawers and washing machines is not in the current scheme, however, but may be provided afterwards. Whether To Have Air Conditioning Or Not Whether or not you choose to have air conditioning can appreciably influence the construction of your house if it is appropriately designed. A house in Thailand correctly designed for air conditioning will be considerably different from one designed to utilize the natural flow of air for keeping cool, instead of air-con. How A House Built In Thailand Is Designed For Natural Ventilation (Not Having Comfort Cooling) In a Thai house without air conditioning you will be relying on natural flow of air blowing through the rooms to dissipate the heat. Our retirement house in Pakchong (Pak Chong), Thailand is designed like this. You should have plenty of options for the natural wind to flow throughout the rooms. The house should be built of light materials that do not easily absorb and re-emit heat. Our house has external walls made from wooden planks that allow the wind to blow through. Openings to permit the natural air drafts to flow will feature open windows and doors, air flow louvres and open-area room designs. Windows with glazing must be avoided as they prevent the breeze from blowing in and windows focus the suns rays like a greenhouse. You only have to look at the traditional Central Plains Thai houses built a hundred years ago to appreciate how to design a natural-cooling Thai house. Features Of A House Designed For Air Conditioning Air-con works like a fridge and the house should be configured like a fridge to get the best out of the Air Conditioning. This means preventing natural air currents - it must be designed as an extremely well sealed building, tightly closed doors and windows - well insulated and if you must have natural light this ought to be provided through windows with glazing, preferably which has a coloured coating to reduce heat from the suns rays. Double glazing also helps.
