What scent sells a house and what can you do to ensure that you create a wonderful smelling home for potential buyers?


Smell is one of our most important senses. Psychologically speaking, it’s the sense that is most closely linked with memory, meaning that good smells can evoke happy memories and experiences while bad smells can do just the opposite.

There’s a reason why real estate agents always think about the best scent for home staging before a showing. A house that smells like freshly baked cookies can evoke a warm and homey feeling while a refreshing and clean smelling house can evoke feelings of potential and new opportunities.

Smell is also highly emotive; different fragrances can convey a vast array of emotions and feelings. So, it’s no surprise that smell can come into play when you’re trying to sell your home.

Trying these ideas for a different smell:

Diffuse Essential Oils: All you need to do is purchase an affordable diffuser, add a few drops of essential oil, and run it for a few hours before your open house. Use

Baking Soda: Spread on your carpets and sofa, can help remove tough smells and leave you with a neutral pallet.

Take Advantage of Your Stove: I recommend using spicy and warm flavors such as cinnamon and/or cloves, which evoke a sense of the holidays. Just be sure you use scents that evoke only the best memories and feelings. It can be the added factor you need to make the sell.
