Thursday, March 10, 2016 | 3:44 am

When a home goes to the market, one of the first tasks for the seller is to host an open house. Take the time to make sure the maximum numbers of people see your home to increase the chances of selling it quickly for a good price.

Remember to make a good first impression – freshen up the exterior, consider purchasing some new items like mailboxes and clean the driveway and walkways.

And clean! Cleaning is one of the most important things you can do – your house has to be in has to be in pristine condition when you have the open house. You can hire professional house cleaners, having the windows washed and having the carpets cleaned.

Remove all personal items, because homebuyers want to walk into the house and visualize it as their new home – it becomes more difficult when he or she is put off by your personal things.

Try to get rid of the clutter; it’s hard for potential buyers to see the home’s features when there are too many pieces of furniture or decorations.

If you are still living in the house consider some small touches such as fresh towels in the bathroom, vases of flowers and a few well-chosen accessories.
