Scent has a powerful impact on our emotions—and it can make or break how potential buyers react to your home.
That’s why it’s essential to make sure your home smells its best before an open house or showing. Here’s how:
- Give it a good scrub. Wipe down all surfaces, paying special attention to the kitchen and bathrooms. Use neutral-scented products whenever possible.
- Take out the trash. Empty all trash cans, even well-sealed ones, to keep any smells from escaping. Plus, no one wants to see your garbage!
- Clean the carpets. Eliminate built-up dirt and pet dander by having your carpets professionally cleaned. They’ll look better, too.
