An open house is a great tool to give a large number of potential buyers the opportunity to take a look inside your home. If someone is injured while on your property for the open house a liability issue could arise. Instead of allowing this possibility to stop you from doing what it takes to successfully sell your home, use these tips for making your open house safer and proceed with confidence.

Loose Tiles: Fix and secure any loose tiles before buyers start walking through. A simple trip could result in major medical and dental bills that you can very prevent.

Furniture: Lots of furniture and boxes will make your home look less attractive to buyers but it also becomes a safety hazard. Create a large, open space in as many rooms as possible to increase your home’s appeal and reduce its safety hazards before an open house.

Smoke Detector: Ensure your smoke detectors are operational before you have an open house.

Pool Fences: Secure your safety fence and all gates before you open your home to strangers.

Pets: Make sure pets are not at home when you have the open house to avoid dog bites or injury to your pets. Taking them out to a park or boarding them can help you avoid this potential problem.

Shelves and Cabinets: Make sure your cabinet doors and shelves are secure so that there is no risk of injury when visitors begin opening and examining them.

Floors: Everyone thinks to wash your floors or hose off your deck before buyers come through, but you need to give it plenty of time to dry. Visitors could wear any kind of shoes and wet surfaces could increase the risk of injury.

An open house can help get your home off the market and into the hands of a buyer. Protecting yourself from liabilities during the open house ensures that the process of selling your home doesn't become a disaster.
