Gatsby wants Daisy to see his house because it will show her how successful he is. Showing her his house would be a way to impress her by his wealth. Dan said it perfectly, he is very excited and anxious to see her again and has been waiting for the moment to see her again for a while. This shows how he is still thinking about her and how he hopes that by showing her his house and how successful he is, things would change.
