When I help my clients prepare their homes for showings, I tell them that one of the most important things they can do is make their home have a wonderful smell greet potential buyers when they walk through the door!
Smell is one of our strongest senses and it gives a wonderful first impression to anyone entering the home.
Smells can make or break a showing. If you walk into a home that has a clean smell or the smell of fresh baked cookies, you want to stick around. On the other hand, if you walk into a dirty, dusty smelling home or a home with a strong pet odor, you immediately have a negative impression of the home. Having the right smell is critical to a successful showing of your home.
Of course, many times my clients will not be home when they have showings, so I went to one of my favorite stores in the College Station mall, The Candle Box, and visited with the owner, Joyce about some safe alternatives to leaving a candle burning.
Joyce told me about reed diffusers and plug in warmers that keep your home smelling good without the risk of leaving a candle burning! This is a great alternative and will help your home show much better while staying safe at the same time!
