How's the aroma?
  • Try to air out the home prior to showings.
  • If air freshener is necessary, use something subtle and apply it 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 and set the volume on low.
  • If you have time, cook a batch of cookies to have the warm, welcoming aroma permeating the home.

Timely Tip

Autumn is the second busiest season in the real estate market. If you're looking to buy a home, here are 3 valuable pieces of info:

  • The busy part of the season is from mid-September to mid-November. Most people like to be in their new home by the holidays, so this 2-month span has the most activity. 
  • Make sure you're pre-approved.  Since this busy season is so short, you'll need to move quickly. Getting pre-qualified for a loan is essential to closing on your dream home. 
  • Guess what? Your dream home is someone else's, too. Be prepared to make an aggressive offer to give you the advantage over other potential buyers.
