THE 7 DEADLY THINGS TO LEAVE OUT DURING AN OPEN HOUSE

By Living Room Realty, March 15, 2018

Our broker Lance Marrs was featured in REALTOR®.com’s roundup of the seven personal items you should never leave out during an open house.


Lance Marrs, a broker at Living Room Realty in Portland, OR, has witnessed open house guests go to a refrigerator and help themselves to snacks, cookies, and soda without missing a beat.

“It’s the quick grab-and-go items these naughty elves seem most attracted to,” he notes.

No one’s saying you need to go all Mother Hubbard before a showing. Instead, Marrs suggests, tidy up your fridge to the nth degree.

The neater and more organized it is, he says, the less inclined food thieves are to mess it up. “And,” Marrs adds, “it’s easier for you to know what’s missing.”
