Today, we are excited to share with you some tips we recently got from Leslie Lang, a Realtor at Keller Williams of over 10 years. She posted a video to Realtor.com about how to make your home stand out to buyers, so we wanted to share with you her tips so you can make your home stand out as well.


When you’re selling your home, you want buyers to feel warm and welcome. You can do this by effectively stimulating their senses, in the following ways:


1. Finding the right temperature

Whether it’s summer or winter, make sure buyers are comfortable. We have found that a temperature between 68-72 is the most comfortable.


2. Remove screens from the window

This helps the home seem bigger and brings more natural light in.


3. Neutralize all odors

After you neutralize them, add back in delightful scents like vanilla, cinnamon, or fresh flowers.


4. Play music in the background

This is a subliminal way of putting buyers at ease. We’ve found that smooth jazz works best.
