The old "bake a tin of brownies" real estate trick, hit them in the stomach as soon as they open the door to the property listing.
Say honey, I'm home. Making the real estate buyer feel at home. Every time they set foot in your new real estate listing.
But it is not always the mission to remove the bad property smells that curl the nose.
Instead careful attention to the pleasant ones that round out the four walls, floor and a roof.
Over the years have done lots of door to door neighborhood canvasing.
Whether an in town neighborhood I sure would like to have more listing inventory in.
Or walking the entire sides of lakes in Maine to learn the lay of the land.

Under the hand-held magnifying glass to sense this is a place needing a new buyer soon. With all the signs of a future listing is I just make some calls, track down the property owner.

That smell good, bad or ugly lingers in a house.
And in the case of a fire, animal urine, you may never get rid of it saturating the wood, floors, ceiling tiles, rugs and walls.
