Make Showings a Sensory Experience!
According to “Make It High-Def” published in the March/April 2013 issue of Realtor Magazine, here are some ideas to present a space buyers will be able to soak in during a showing without a sensory overload:
Sight: Display fresh flowers throughout the house on kitchen and bathroom countertops and side tables. Or add color pops by displaying seasonal fruits in the kitchen, living, and dining rooms – like a large bowl filled with red apples, pomegranates, strawberries, or lemons.
Sound: Play soft classical music in the background.
Taste: Put ready-to-bake cookies in the oven shortly before a showing and set them out on a pretty plate in the kitchen for prospective buyers. Brew some coffee and tea. The refreshments provide buyers more incentive to sit down and stay awhile.
Smell: Skip the chemical air fresheners. The flowers and freshly baked cookies will provide a welcoming scent. Slice four apples in half and sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes for an alternative delectable scent.
Feel: Use liens with a “rich, substantive feel” in bedrooms, textured accent pillows, and white fluffy towels – all convey the touch of luxury.
