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

To start the year, housing experts all agreed on one thing: 2017 was going to be the year we would see mortgage interest rates begin to rise. After years of historically low rates, and an improving economy, the question wasn’t if they would increase but instead how much they would increase. Some thought we could see rates hit 5-5.5% by the end of the year.  However, the exact opposite has happened. Instead of higher rates as we head into the middle of 2017, we now have the lowest rates of the year (as reported by Freddie Mac).
