Preparing to sell your home can be a little daunting. Experts have a lot of advice you should follow – de-clutter, get a professional stager, paint, call a landscaper, and the list goes on.

Presenting your house in its best light is a must – so that potential buyers request showings. Another useful tool is the “open house” – a great way for multiple house hunters to take a look at the property at once. Conventional wisdom provides the obvious tips about how to make a splash during one – but no one tends to talk about what not to do when showcasing your home for potential buyers.
