3). Sugar & Salt Popcorn: Popcorn on its own is a guaranteed way to make buyers excited, but sprinkle in some sugar and they are sure to sweeten up to your home right away! Simply make popcorn and mix in just enough regular white sugar for the difference of taste to be noticeable! It will be something different for them to snack on as they walk through your home. Put the popcorn in paper bags, and if you are feeling particularly ambitious, write a nice message on them such as “Thank you for popping by!”. Guests will love it!
What’s better then walking into a beautiful home and being handed a delicious treat? Any one of these treats is a great way to make your house stand out! Make sure that the food looks presentable and that it is clear that guests may help themselves. Make small signs describing each treat, adding any possible allergy alerts on it (such as if it contains nuts). Follow these easy steps, and your house will truly be ‘Home, sweet, home’ for open house attendees.
