How you can use the five senses to improve the sale of your home.


How do the five senses affect the process of selling your home? When you sell, you need to be very aware of what buyers experience when they see it for the first time. To help with this, here are five things you should be aware of when selling your property:


1. Smell. Off-putting smells are a dealbreaker for many buyers. If you have pets, smoke, or make pungent food, make sure buyers can’t smell anything before inviting them into your space. Ask others if they think your house smells.


2. Sound. During open houses or showings, you might want to consider playing soft music to lighten the mood. Furthermore, be aware of how noisy surroundings or neighbors might affect your sale. 


3. Touch. If you have hardwood floors, make sure they are glossy and clean. This also includes countertops, refrigerators, carpeting, etc. Get rid of dust and cobwebs! 


4. Vision. Staged homes sell faster and for more money because it helps buyers picture themselves living in your home. 


5. Taste. This one might sound odd, but good or bad things about your home can affect your buyers’ taste buds. If a house smells or is dirty, this can affect their taste buds.


Keep these five things in mind when selling your home. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to call or email me with any questions. I look forward to hearing from you!
