You already know about cleaning and de-cluttering — but did you know these five things could have an even bigger impact on potential buyers who come through your open house?

Do a rapid renovation.”

Little tweaks. Big difference. Kitchen a bit outdated? Replace the fixtures, faucets and cabinet hinges. Family-room furniture a bit beaten up? “Fix” it with fresh, white-cotton slipcovers.

Turn the bathrooms into little spas.

Create the feel of a relaxing, luxurious bath — for less than $50. Pile pretty soaps in a modern tray. Stack fluffy white washcloths and towels. Add a lightly scented candle. Buy a designer bathmat in a soothing tone, such as the palest green or lightest blue.

Highlight those focal points.

Draw visitors’ eyes toward special features using bright colors and accents. A pop of red throw pillows can draw attention to a cozy window seat. A large, striking modern-art poster, framed and propped on the mantel, will really show off a fireplace.

Bring nature inside.

Potted plants or a few pretty buds in a vase can help bring energy into any space and fill empty spots. Add a trendy fiddle-leaf fig tree in the living room. Put some beautiful white hydrangeas in the bedrooms.

Give every room a purpose.

That spare room that’s been used as a combination office/guest room/dumping ground won’t help sell the house unless you show buyers how they can use it. Pick a use — office, guest room, crafts room, game room — and clearly stage the space to showcase that purpose. They’ll see themselves living there — and your open house may just close a deal.

It may have started out as a 215-acre dairy farm nestled next to Bachman Creek, but Bluffview is now home to many of the most beautiful and architecturally distinct homes in Dallas. With rolling hills, 50 ft. cliffs, winding streets and lot sizes that range from .25-acre parcels to multi-acre estates, the area’s highly desirable topography has attracted premier architects such as Charles Dilbeck and O’Neil Ford, who designed homes that harmonize with the picturesque surroundings.

Close to Dallas’ top private schools, within minutes of world class shopping at NorthPark Center and near major business centers, Bluffview is a pastoral respite in a vibrant community. These, and other beautiful homes, can be viewed at briggsfreeman.com.

Defined Living Spaces 

Don’t worry all you open-living design enthusiasts…the reappearance of defined living doesn’t mean open is out. But, as people spend more time immersed in technology at work, it’s becoming more important to have a space to relax at home.
