Houses that Smell Better, Sell Better!
One overlooked detail for showing a home that is up for sale is the power of the sense of smell. When you are showing your house for sale, it is important to make the best impression possible particularly when there are many homes for sale competing for buyers. Most people know the visuals count, like painting or keeping things tidy and well lit. Smell is a more subtle way to make a statement but it can also be one that touches something deeper, the feeling of being home which is how you want buyers to feel. Try this method to make your house showing an all-around positive sensory experience.
Simmer one cinnamon stick with four to six cloves in water, in a pot on your stove. If you have a lemon or an orange, add rind to the pot for a fresh citrus scent. By doing this daily, you keep that nice, natural aromatic smell in your home. And because it's natural, it doesn't have the overpowering smell of a scented spray.
Improve the "Curb Appeal" of Your Home?
Trimming hedges and trees and cleaning the windows inside and out also helps. If your home looks unkempt from the outside, buyers will be more critical about details on the inside. Prospective buyers want to know that your home has been lovingly protected and maintained.
Aroma plays a subtle but important role in a buyer's decision as well. Try baking a quick batch of cookies prior to a showing. Your home will smell sweet and be more enticing to buyers.
