Unfortunately, the smell of a home is a HUGE factor that determines whether buyers will make an offer or not.
A home that doesn’t smell right… It doesn’t sell very fast.
Maybe you’re dealing with pet odors, mold, or something else… whatever the case, here are some ways to freshen up a home to impress buyers.
Find The Source — First, you’ve got to find where the smell is coming from. Is it coming from the kitchen? From the walls and ceiling? From the carpet?
Use An Odor Removal Item — Depending on where the smell is coming from, you can use an odor removal item to try and get rid of the source of the smell. Baking soda, coffee grounds, white vinegar, and apple cider vinegar can all neutralize bad smells.
Use An Odor Blocking Primer — If the smell is coming from the walls or ceiling, then you might consider using an odor-blocking primer to lock in bad scents.
Get The Carpets Cleaned — Renting or buying a carpet cleaner for your home can go a long way toward making things smell a lot better… especially if you’re dealing with pet odors.
