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 Kitchen a bit outdated?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.

Set the Stage for Fall – Seven Tips for Home Staging that Sells

On average, a staged home sells 88 percent faster – and for 20 percent more – than a home that’s not, according to acclaimed professional stager Meridith Baer. Smart staging makes a major impact and creates an environment that leaves room for potential buyers to envision their own sense of style.

Reports from the National Association of Realtors state that homebuyers make their decision in the first 90 seconds of seeing a house. That’s why it’s important to work with an experienced real estate agent and even a professional stager to prepare your home to appeal to the broadest number of people and bring the highest dollar.

So how do you make the maximum impact in that first minute and a half? Consider these tips:
