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 Kitchen a bit outdated?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.
