When I came home this evening, I decided to light my newly-purchased Yankee Candle:   Pumpkin Pie flavor!   As I briefly departed my home to walk to the mailbox, and then re-entered, I immediately breathed in the lovely scent wafting through my rooms!

So, because home staging is never far from my mind, it reminded me how important the smell of a home is to potential buyers.

Here are some suggested lighter scents that are appropriate for home staging:

·         Apple pie, pumpkin spice, or vanilla scented candles

·         Baked cookies

·         Fresh flowers in a vase

·         Drops of essential oils for light bulbs (turn on lamps prior to showings)

Of course before adding some light scents, be sure to eliminate any unpleasant smells from your home, such as cigarette/cigar smoke, pet or cooking odors – this will be another blog for another time!!
