Making ''Scents'' When Selling Your Home

So, you have a viewing at your property? Its surprising how many viewers will follow their noses, this being our strongest sense if the aroma isn't right that could be one less box ticketed for your potential buyer. Make your home smell too good to resist, you may think this is over the top but do you notice the elegant fragrance the minute you step into Next? Appealing isn't it, this is the same impact we want your viewer to feel. 

In 2010 a study found that on average 31.8% of shoppers spent more money when the store was scented, it proved that aromas can affect cognitive functions in the same areas of the brain involved in decision making. Now every property is different, you decide which environment you want to create. Here are some of my suggestions;

Homely smells like baked bread or freshly ground coffee this will create a warm and cosy atmosphere, ideal if it is cold dark day outside. 

Your property may suit the refreshing and crisp scent of lemon and orange, the citrus savour implements the distinctive summertime feeling.

The traditional vanilla and sandalwood could be the one a comforting and original scent, the perfect neutral option.

Whichever you pick my key tip is to frequently open those windows! Allow the fresh air to flow through the property and take note of the BIG no no's!
No pet smells
No stale smoke odors 
No overflowing rubbish bins
No damp washing
