Is it true that the smell of fresh coffee or bread wafting through my home will help it sell? We believe in the power of temperature and lighting over smell. Bedside lamps, downlights, open windows and fresh air are always the best bets for creating a warm welcome for buyers. And if it’s likely to be hot or cold on an inspection day, make sure your agent is committed to managing the indoor temperature of your property. Artificial smells or ones you introduce can often be overpowering and make it appear as though you’re trying to mask an unpleasant scent. I’d suggest simply airing the house out and keeping food smells to a minimum in the days leading up to an inspection.
