Making Your Miami House Attractive for Sale

by Isaac Benmergui, Esq on July 19, 2013

PondBuyers can overlook small defects when they have their heart set on their dream home. You work to unclutter and depersonalize the house in order to create a space where a potential buyer can see themselves living. But one defect that’s tough to overlook and sometimes correct, is a bad smell.

You can’t rely on a room sprays to take all the odor away; they could also cause a buyer to suffer an allergic reaction, and room fresheners pulled into every outlet is a dead giveaway that there is a problem. So what can you do to present your home as odor free?

  • Open all the windows and air the place out. Many people stick with air conditioning and never open up the house to let the breeze carry odors away;
  • Place fabric softener sheets in linen closets, vacuum bags, and pillowcases; anywhere they can’t be seen
  • Use odor absorbing products: baking soda, unused coffee grounds, imitation vanilla, houseplants, tea tree oil, vinegar, cat litter, and a boiling pot of cinnamon and cloves absorb odors.
  • Treat your garbage disposal to rinds of citrus fruits once a week.
  • Don’t smoke indoors.
  • Use pet odor control products for all stains and messes.

Try to remember what you would look for in a home, and what would turn you off if you saw it in a home. If you keep those things in mind, your home will be presented in the best possible light to your potential buyer.
