Sell with Smell
Studies have shown that an attractive scent in your home plays a huge part in how people feel and is linked to the emotion-processing parts of our brains.
The first sense engaged when you open the front door of a home is the smell. During an open house, a nice, subtle aroma can work wonders on potential homebuyers.
1. Stay away from artificial scents in candles as they can cause headaches and be potent in smell
2. Try to incorporate the candles into your styling so it doesn't look like your covering up the smell in the home
3. Strong household cleaners are best used at least 24 hours before an inspection and open some windows to air your home after use
4. Pick a scent that matches the home - for example, if you have a coastal home you would pick summery tones of coconut and frangipani, something oceanic and sophisticated, such as zesty citrus
