One of the issues that may come up during the sale of a home is pervasive odors, particularly cigarette smoke. If your home is on the market, it may sell more quickly if you temporarily make it a smoke-free zone. Many non-smokers are highly sensitive to the lingering presence of smoke.
The sense of smell is the most powerful of all the five senses. Be sure to keep your home aired out while it is on the market. If the weather is good, you can smoke outside or while taking a walk or a drive. Avoid heavily-scented room fresheners which combined with the smoke can be worse than the smoke alone. It helps to wash the walls and have drapes and upholstered furniture professionally cleaned. This is really a serious issue for many buyers, so don't limit your market by turning away non-smokers.
