Real Estate

What is a buyer’s first impression of the interior of your home?

So you have your yard all tidied up and the curb appeal of your home is amazing!  The buyers are interested in having a tour of the interior…is your home ready???

Once that front door opens the buyer will be hit with a flood of sensations.  We want those sensations to be positive!

·      What does the buyer see?

·      What does the buyer smell?

·      How does the buyer feel?


Does the buyer experience this?

 Bad Smells  Clutter II  Dirty Laundry


OR, does the buyer experience this?


Fresh Bread  Organized kitchen  Staged Living Room


The goal: To have the buyer feel welcome and “at home;” to have the buyer smell freshness (or nothing), to have the buyer see light, bright, clean, and open.
