I headed out this afternoon to show houses in the Cocoa, Florida. There are a lot of beautiful properties that offer some nice acreage with them. Many offer an extra workshop or garage or even a barn. The area that we looked at allows owners to have horses on the property. When we stepped into one home it was light and bright, the rooms were spacious and there was a view of the pool out the sliding doors. The house was free of clutter. All things that are appealing to a buyer. However, the pet odor was so strong that it hit us immediately upon entering the home. We stepped into the middle of the living room and the buyer turned on her heal and said she had seen enough. We turned and left without touring the rest of the property.
Pet odors in a home can be a huge turn off to a potential buyer. Remember, a house must appeal to all of a buyer’s senses, including sight, sound and smell. So make sure the house is free of nasty odors prior to putting it on the market.
