Smells don't Sell


If your home is on the market, curb appeal counts but so does scent. As soon as the prospective buyer opens the front door, they experience your home’s unique odors. It’s a first impression based on whether they experience a pleasing smell, or if something immediately turns them off. Don’t underestimate the importance of smell because you don’t get a second change to change a first impression.

Smoke and pet odors are the most important, but many times both homeowners and realtors forget about carpets and basements.

High traffic carpets can collect unpleasant smells. Sprinkle some baking soda on the carpet for a few hours and then vacuum up to remove the odor.

Both finished and unfinished areas located below street level are the place buyers know to take a whiff. The continual usage of a dehumidifier prevents odors from starting. If you have not been diligent about this, cut an onion in half, place it on a plate and leave it overnight in the basement. Remove and once the aroma dissipates it will smell fresh.

Never ever cover up odors with sprays, candles, or diffusers. Buyers will pick up right away on your deception and then be wondering what else you are hiding.

If a closet has been closed up for a while, the clothes can start to smell musty; the buyer opens it and is hit in the face with the smell of worn clothing and shoes. To remove the smell, you need to remove the bacteria. Do you know how to do this?

Share your idea and then I'll email you let you know!
