Pet check: 

  • Are there any signs that this is a pet's home?

How's the aroma? 

  • Try to air out the home prior to showings.
  • If air freshener is necessary, use well before showings as a consideration to those with allergies.

Set the mood prior to showings:

  • Open draperies and blinds.
  • Turn on the radio to a classical music station, set the volume on low.
  • If you have time, cook a batch of cookies to have the warm, welcoming aroma permeating the home.
