Have you ever walked into a home and it just smells “new”?
There is a Febreeze Commercial where they have product testers blind folded. They spray the air surrounding some stinky items. Majority of them only smelled the freshness of the spray. Once they removed the blindfolds they did further testing which was not depicted in the commercial. Here they sprayed the same scenery and it took more spray to cover the smell because they could visually digest the smell now too. Interesting right?
Our minds play tricks on us all the time and that is how you could stage your home. Look through your home with that lens. If you have old furnishings, make them revitalized with a cute table runner, throw pillow or modern tray.
Another way to freshen up your home for sale is to add elements that people naturally associate smells to. An example would be setting out a bowl of lemons, or in the bathroom have lavender placed on folded clean white towels. Re-purpose your home with these little pieces of magic to revitalize your home for a strong showing to your future buyers. Use your great-grandmas beautiful platter to place fresh baked cookies on in the kitchen. The vase you received flowers in 10 years ago will be much more beautiful with fresh flowers for a showing. Positively involve all the senses when you are walking through your home.
