Be strategic about handouts and valuables. Documents about the home, especially with attractive photos, should be readily accessible. “I prefer that property brochures and information are in the foyer area, located on a console or table with some fresh flowers. Buyers can pick up that information upon entering or leaving,” says Melvin.
Whether it’s an invitation-only showing or a large opening for the masses, it’s important to safeguard valuables, personal information and sensitive items. Stow small items like electronics, jewelry and prescription medications, and protect financial statements and documents, recommends Pinsker-Brown.
Don’t forget: “Shut off and password-protect computers too,” Pinsker-Brown adds.
