The Nose Knows


If you plan on getting the most from the sale of your home you better be sure it can pass the "sniff" test. Let's face it your home should smell good.

When it comes to selling the house, it means that there should be no noticeable odors. Make careful attempts to get rid of pet odors, cooking smells and cigarette smoke.

Smell makes an enormous impact on people when they enter a home. While smokers and pet owners may not even notice the smells in their home - having become quite accustomed to them - they may be an overwhelming turn-off for potential buyers.

Have a non-smoking, non-pet owning friend come over to perform a sniff test.

Of all the impacts that your home can have on your buyer, cigarette smoke is the very last one you'd want.

This doesn't just mean the smell - which, is quite offensive to potential buyers - but the look of ash trays (even clean ones) and smoke stains on walls, cupboards, and otherwise.

This is also true for burn holes in carpeting and upholstery. Sure, you're not selling your furniture, but the furniture that is there will leave an overall impression, so make certain that they don't show signs of smoker's damage.

For the majority of buyers, they won't even want to tour a home if it is currently owned by a smoker. With that in mind, make sure to get rid of any "evidence" of your habit.

Store all of your ash trays out of sight; clean all of the walls, ceilings, and other places that have smoke stains, and replace or cover any fabrics, carpets, or upholsteries that have burn holes.

If you must smoke, do so outside, and make sure that you're not smoking in front of an open window that will simply let the smoke back in.
