Green for Sale Sign


Appearance is everything when it comes to selling your home… or is it? While the average vendor is clued into the benefits of trimming the grass, scrubbing the windows and hoovering the carpets, it should be noted that a sale isn’t just dependent on aesthetics. After all, there are many reasons why buyers decide to put in a bid on a property – including its odour. While bad smells can be off-putting, nice ones can actually help to sell property fast and make all the difference to your home flying off the market. With this in mind, here are three scents that you can easily use to your advantage.


Air fresheners


Air fresheners can quickly eliminate any odours in your home and replace them with a more heavenly smell. The best ones can simply be plugged into the wall sockets, meaning that they can be used in every room of the house. It’s a nifty trick to make sure that your house smells clean and tidy from top to bottom. Who wouldn’t want to live in a house like that?




There are some foods – such as greasy ones – that are a big no-no when it comes to selling your home. Therefore, be wary of making meals with high-fat content before welcoming interested parties into your home. Meanwhile, other treats – such as homemade bread or sugary baked goods – can really give your house that homely feel which buyers are always enticed by.


Fresh air


You can quickly find yourself with a million and one things to do when you’re in the process of selling your home. While the property’s smell shouldn’t fall on the backburner, it needn’t command too much of your attention either. Instead, you should be able to get away with just opening all the windows in your home prior to any viewings. This is the quick and cheap way to ensure there’s just the smell of fresh air rather than any lingering foul scents.


The smell of money!


Unfortunately, your home can still spend months upon months on the market, even when it’s got a pleasant odour. Luckily, you can always avoid this happening by enlisting the help of National Property Trade’s ‘sell house fast’ service. Get in touch to see how you can benefit.

I can't thank National Property Trade enough. I had my property on the market for 7 months with no interest, so checked an online property buyer expecting to take a hit. I chose their Assisted Sale product and I think I have probably ended up more than I would've done leaving it on the market, reducing it every few weeks. Gives me great relief that I don't have the stress of trying to sell anymore. If you are fed up of your estate agent, give National Property Trade a try.
