Have a bakery prepare two dozen unbaked cinnamon buns. Freeze. It only takes a few minutes to defrost. When you are expecting a buyer, pop two or three into the oven, at 425 degrees for about 30 minutes. Place a few drops of vanilla on light bulbs. Turn on all the lights prior to a showing. Purchase an inexpensive potpourri cooking pot. You can add fragrance with oil, beads, spices, or perfume. Leave it simmer and refill every two or three days. Add a few drops of vanilla, nutmeg or cinnamon to a pot of water and let simmer for a few minutes. A word of caution. Too much fragrance can be unpleasant and distracting. People may wonder what you are trying to hide with an overpowering effect. Buyers will also remember the lingering garlic, onions and curry long after they have forgotten the color of the bedroom walls. Sense of Sight Visual enhancements can add color, warmth, texture and atmosphere to your

home. Items such as colorful pillows, vases with flowers, plants, and attractive afghans help to provide the feeling of a bright and cheerful home. A word of caution. Too many decorating items create a cluttered, crowded feeling. Neutral decorating tends to work best. Anything unusual usually distracts the buyer. Sense of Hearing Gentle background music can provide a relaxing atmosphere for the viewing. Find some “elevator music,” that is nonoffensive and easy on the ears. Sense of Touch Be sure that all high-traffic surfaces are clean and clutter free. it is not uncommon for a potential home buyer to run their hands over a bathroom sink, or a kitchen counter. When surfaces are clean and freshly disinfected, you create a cared for feeling. When you pay attention to smell, sight, hearing and touch, you will present a more attractive atmosphere for a potential buyer. When you give your home these inexpensive touches, you can help pay big dividends with buyers.
