Can You Smell The Sale?

The way a home smells can be just as important as the way it looks to potential buyers. We have all heard of baking cookies, cooling an apple pie, or brewing a fresh pot of coffee as ways to entice potential buyers. On the other hand, have you ever had the experience of being overpowered by the scent of a wall plugin when you walked into an open house?

A scent can play an important role in setting the ambiance for your home.  Here are other ideas you could try.

  • Clean the air with an air purifying potted plant
  • Boil cinnamon sticks or an extract (vanilla,almond) on the stove
  • Decorate with live wreaths
  • Use a scent booster in your laundry
  • Have fresh flowers or herbs in common areas
  • Pop fresh popcorn
  • Place a vase of eucalyptus leaves in bathrooms

There is only one opportunity for a first impression. Make sure your house smells as beautiful as it looks.
