Don’t be Smellerific | New Orleans Home Selling Advice

“Has anyone else showed that cat pee house at 123 Main Street?”

That’s a question I heard in the office recently (not the real address, of course).

Odors don't sell

Selling your New Orleans home means being prepared to have it scrutinized by potential buyers.

They will open your closets and your cabinets. They will measure rooms to see if their furniture will fit. They will critique your decorating, your paint colors and your housekeeping skills.

But one of the fastest ways to turn a home buyer off? A smelly home.

If your home is going on the market soon, ask a trusted friend (or your agent) to tell you if there is any indication of:

  • Pet smells
  • Cooking odors
  • Musty scents
  • Smoking odors


Get rid of any of these problems before the first buyer ever steps a toe across your threshold. I guarantee that they won’t give you a second chance.
