9 Things That Turn Buyers Off

Every buyer has their own views on how a property should and shouldn’t be presented for sale. Knowing and avoiding the common ones when you decide to sell should be a huge advantage.

Smells

Ah, the good ol’ nose, always ruining things. Actually, we should be glad we’re so sensitive to smell, and that smells can have a big impact on our property buying process.

Setting up your place for sale can involved creating a set of inviting smells. But it should also involve getting rid of the unappealing ones.

Top of buyers turn off lists are pet smells. Even if we love our own animals, we don’t really want to smell other people’s, especially when it’s in an environment we’re trying to imagine kicking back and relaxing in.

Other smell turn offs are cigarette smoke, mustiness, food and overpowering perfumes or incense (if you’re dressing your home for sale, less is more).
