When you put your home on the market, you want it to appeal to a large cross section of buyers in order to create a frenzy of activity!

Buying a home is such an emotional decision that even a seemingly small issue can create a bad impression that will turn a buyer off.  Here are six home buyer turn offs you need to be aware of:

  1. Go Away! - Make yourself scarce during showings as nothing turns buyers off more than a stalking seller.

  2. Fido & Fluffy - Pets and their associated smells and mess will put many buyers off.  Hide pet dishes, toys, beds, etc. before a showing and if possible, get rid of the animals too.

  3. Killer Clutter - Buyers want to imagine themselves living in your home but most can’t look past other people's clutter.  This includes spaces behind closed doors such as closets and cupboards.

  4. Problems Down Below - You want to show that your unfinished basement has potential so investigate any signs of moisture and paint the floor white as it'll give it a much roomier feel.

  5. Forgo the Fish Fry - It's best not to cook fish or spicy foods while your home's on the market.  Air your home out by opening the windows rather than covering smells with artificial scents.

  6. Grubby Grout - It's imperative your entire home is thoroughly cleaned including the inside of the microwave, stove and fridge.  Neglected personal spaces like bathrooms will have them running for the door!


When you sell your home, it's important to get the most amount of money in the shortest amount of time.  Sometimes the best way to do that is by taking care of the small stuff.  It's definitely worth the effort and the good news is that depersonalising, decluttering and thoroughly cleaning your home doesn't cost a fortune.
