Selling your home in Michigan... What's that smell?
If you are selling your home, you may not realize that one of the very first things that impact how a Buyer FEELS about your home is the odors that they encounter when first entering your home... and each room!
Too much fragrance at every turn and a Buyer may assume that you are trying to hide something. If you have pets, it is a much better idea to be super clean when selling your home and get rid of the odor sources than to try and mask them.
When we live with odors, we tend to lose our sensitivity to that particular smell, yet someone not used to it will zero in on the odor even if it is covered up with room deodorizer fragrance.
Try using products designed to eliminate odors at their source, rather than cover them up - especially large sources such as cartpeting and furniture.
If cleaning and/or odor eliminators don't do the trick, seek professional cleaning help or try renting an odor eliminator machine that uses ionizing to destroy odors. They are usually found at your local tool renting business for your area.
Additionally, have someone who does not live in your home come over for a smell test, and make sure they can be trusted to give a real honest opinion, because Buyers definitely will!
