16 Razzle Dazzle Open House Ideas!

Do you know Wayne and Jean? Wayne and Jean Zuhl are Real Estate Agents in Clark New Jersey.

In the below artcle, they share some great idea for a little 'Razzle Dazzle' during open houses. I've identified some that would work great in Texas. Perhaps you'll find some that will work great in your neck of the woods.

Afterwards, be sure to check out their Activerain Profile and Blog for other great posts.
