SmELLING your house? Do people realize the importance of the smell of their house when potential homebuyers walk around. We love our animals, perfumes, food, etc., but not everyone enjoys the same things. Smells trigger emotions and memories in us. We will not be able to match everyone's favorite smell, but at least we don't want to turn them off. What do they smell? Some smells are obvious: pets, cigarettes, dirty laundry. But others are not so obvious. We may not even realize there is a smell. If you cook a lot, or use a favorite air freshener, you may not notice at all, but it may turn off an outsider.
What should you do before someone comes to view your home? CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN! The fresher the better. Put the dog out, freshen pet areas, air out cooking odors, wash fabrics and anything that stores odors. Ask the opinion of someone. Ask what they smell or notice when they come in. Think about the way smells trigger a feeling in you. Make sure you provoke a good feeling when buyers look and SMELL your home.

"Jill recently helped us find a house for our son to live in during his college years. We had a very specific location the house needed to be in, but didn't know a lot about the market there. Jill helped us research true comps in the area in order to properly value the homes we were interested in before considering our offers. When Jill shows a home, it's like having a "pre-inspector" there--she is very thorough and leaves no stone unturned while showing the property each time and during the walk-through. Jill follows up on every detail in a timely manner. Working with Jill, you will know you have an agent on your side who wants to find you the perfect property for your needs. She is a dedicated and trusted agent I would recommend to any family member or friend."
