Getting ready to host an Open House? Staging, cleaning, lighting and snacks are what most people think about. However, removing or hiding items of value are important also. Think about the small, valuable things that are easy to conceal. Jewelry and perfume are easily stolen by guests and should be removed or locked away. Wine, perfume, handbags and guns also make the list of personal items that should be put in a safe place during your Open House. The item that most sellers forget to hide is prescription drugs. Many drugs have a high resale value and are an easy target of thieves. Medicine cabinets and nightstands are not the places to keep your prescriptions while your home is for sale. Your agent will do their best to keep an eye on visitors, however, inevitably multiple people will show up at the same time, making it difficult to tack everyone.
