Halloween hasn’t passed yet and the stores are already filled with Thanksgiving and Christmas décor. After this weekend we are officially rounding the corner into the holiday season. Selling your Indianapolis, IN home during the holidays can be tougher than other times but it is certainly doable and shouldn’t turn you off from having your home on the Indianapolis, IN real estate market. We all know of the old trick of baking cookies before a showing or an open house, but, what else can you do to freshen your home and complement the holiday season? Why not skip the chemical laden sprays and plug ins and go for something more natural.
DIY Air Freshener. You can eliminate unwanted home odors with spray air freshener and it is simple to make your own. Easy to come by ingredients such as citrus, water, baking soda, and a spray bottle are part of many of the DIY air freshener recipes on Pinterest.
Simmer Pots. Bypass baking cookies and instead put a simmer pot on the stove full of nutmeg, cinnamon, and other seasonal herbs and spices. A few minutes of simmering will have your home smelling just like the holidays!
Tea Bags. Tea bags can be used similarly to baking soda to absorb unwanted smells. A few leaves in the cat litter box or some tea bags hung in a musty closet can do wonders to freshen up your space.
Deodorize the Disposal. Drop in a few ice cubes and a cut up lemon into the disposal and give it a whirl. The lemon will sanitize and the ice cubes help to remove any old food particles.
When you are ready to put your Indianapolis, IN home on the market please contact an Indianapolis, IN real estate agent. We’d be happy to talk you through the selling process and can help you get your home sold, even during the holiday season.
