For consumers who are shopping for a new home that have a sensitive sense of smell or allergies, a strong or unpleasant smell can have them leaving before even looking at the property! When looking to sell a home, one of the simplest ways to push the consumer away is an unfriendly odor. Lighting candles and spraying air fresheners will only mask any lingering smells and can be very distracting with the homebuyer as their brain is working hard to determine what that smell is and where is it coming from, instead of focusing on the house.
Calming and welcoming smells can influence a homebuyer to stay and enjoy their view, rather than expediting the visit. Location of the home and the aroma can also influence any potential likings of the home. For instance, a home located near the woods or selling around the holiday times can take advantage of smells like Cinnamon, Pine, and Cedar. A home located near the city can enjoy the sense of Vanilla for a more relaxing atmosphere. By using the proper scent, your prospective homebuyer can feel a deeper connection on an emotional level resulting in a more memorable and pleasant experience.
These are the 7 most popular scents homeowners can use to make their property stand out from the rest:
- Green Tea
Vanilla and Lavender help ease anxiety, which is great for homebuyers to smell when they walk into a home. The sense of easiness and comfort goes a long way.
