  Eliminate Odors Which Turn Buyers Off - Back
We opened the door for our buyer to view a new listing and were immediately knocked back by a strong pet odor. It's happened before. If only the seller had taken the time to really prepare the home for showing.
In a recent survey of nearly 500 real estate agents, odors are second only to cleanliness in determining how quickly a home sells and for what price.

As REALTORS we know what factors influence buyers when shopping for a home. Most important is the home's first impression including cleanliness, neatness, lack of clutter, and smells or odors. Also important is the home's layout, use of space, and décor. Each room has only a few critical seconds to make a positive first impression. Clean, neat, and clutter free space helps attract the buyer's attention.

If you are thinking about selling, take time to show case the home by cleaning carpets, repainting walls, and removing personal objects such as family photos. Take care of needed repairs before listing the home. This will actually cost less than allowing repairs to become a negotiating issue later. It will also give you an advantage over the competition.

The best way to approach the issue is to look at the home through the "buyer's eyes." If you need help, turn to your REALTOR for an objective opinion on how to best prepare your home for showing. And, don't forget to neutralize any offending odors.
