Biggest Mistakes Home Sellers Make (Odors)

Real Estate Agent with BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY Georgia Properties 157561

Part 4 of my series, “Don’t Make These Home Seller Mistakes” (view chart) discusses dealing with odors when your home is on the South Forsyth real estate market.

The South Forsyth real estate market is very competitive so your home needs to be memorable in a good way… not a bad one!


TRUTH #1 - Cigarette or pet odors will keep some buyers from making an offer on a home they otherwise love!  As I mentioned in Part 2 of my series, there is no such things as “too clean” when your home is on the market and odor plays a major in how a buyer perceives your home.


 � Open all of the windows

 � Remove the Source

 � Clean to Deodorize

 � Use the Right Products

 � Mask the Odor

 � Re-Paint

 � Use of Stronger, Professional Methods (Ozone...)

I can't sell it if I can smell it. (Sniff) Unless... (surprised eyes large look) Are those brownies, hot out of the oven? Milk? Yes please.
