Pot is not..... Good for the sale of your home.

I recently showed a home where the perfume smell was nauseating, and it alerted my buyer to an odour issue.  Valerie Zinger makes a great point about this.

Okay, none of that either but pot pourri.  Toss it out.  The perfume is always almost toxic.   Nothing says "sad and desperate" like a big bowl of dead leaves, acorns, pine cones and bark.  Replace the morbid with fresh fruit - lemons or green apples. You have pot pourri to hide the smells in your house.  It may, in fact, make it worse.   Bake bread.  Boil cinnamon. Open the windows.  You can buy the little glass jars filled with a mild scented oil and with bamboo sticks.  Just not pot pourri.

As you walk around your house, even before the Home Stager arrives, scoop up all the dead and artificial plants.  You don't want to know what I think about the dead wreath over the mantle.  First, they collect dust and second they are just not normally good decorations.  You want your house to sell. 

Keep your sale alive with fresh smells and living things.
