Baking cookies or bread is a good idea. I agree with the others. I don't like frangrances at all! I have a friend who is allergic to much of that stuff, so you should keep that in mind as well. I recently walked through a house and they had soft music in the background. It really did a good job of making the house feel "homey" and comfortable. I plan on doing that with my open house on Sunday!
Have some brownies (you know the kind I mean), and play some Marley, Dylan, and Pink Floyd. Even the worst crapshack will seem wonderful....
Rhonda, looks like you've received the 'full spectrum' of responses.
Fragrance - yes & noFeed them - yes & noOpen house worthwhile - yes & noMusic - yes & no
However, there are several comments of note. The most important consideration is: "What is your goal for the Open House?" This goal does not need to be made public, but you should certainly have one and then provide the infrastructual to make it happen. A truly faulty goal is one that sounds like, "To demonstate to the homeowner I am working on their behalf."
If the goal is to sell the home, I do believe Jack Emmons suggestions are certainly worthy of presenting to the homeowner. Finally, whatever the goal for an Open House may be, you must NEVER conduct an Open House alone! Besides, you will be way too busy to benefit from the event without a wingman to keep you free to take care of the real business.Good luck with your open house.Annette LawrenceReMax Realtec GroupPalm Harbor, Fl
