Tip Jar: Pheromones Sell Homes

Pheromones Sell Homes! Try this:

15-20 minutes before your Open House or before a showing, place a tray of prepared but uncooked cinnamon buns in the oven and bake. Let the aroma fill your entire dwelling. When they are fully baked remove from the oven, let them cool, and place them in clear view with napkins and a note that says "Welcome Home. Please Enjoy."

Your home smells amazing and there will be a special treat for the lucky visitor.

Cinnamon Buns do more than stimulate the olfactory nerve, the treat is strongly connected to memory and it has been linked to reducing depression, increasing libido (wink, wink), and creating an overall feeling of happiness! Scented candles, oils and sprays are not as effective. You can find ready-to-bake Cinnamon Buns at your local grocer.

Try it ! I am telling you...Pheromones Sell Homes!

I have used cookies in the past but never cinnamon buns, that a great idea!

Posted by Keith Vermilyea (Home Buyers Marketing II, Inc.) over 6 years ago

pheremones do not simply refer to smells, they are distinctly hormones that people or animals emit that other people or animals are effected by.  food items and incense would not qualify.  if your seller hung their underwear throughout the house, you would have a phermonal situation!

I know that when food is left during a showing, customers will remember the house and associate it with the food, "Remember the place where we had the coffee and short breads?" I think the food helps people to stick around longer and take in more of the home's features.

Chris and Steph... good tip. I think I have seen you name another post or so as Tip Jar? If so, you should do a series and call it the Tip Jar series... and even make a list on your posts under stip jar.. at the end of each of these posts. Keeping a running list... just food for thought.

I've heard similar things about the scent a vanilla. Thanks for the additional tip. I'll give it a try. Unfortunately, I love them and will probably have to sample

Posted by Jane Jensen (Century 21 New Millennium) over 6 years ago

That's a smart idea, Chris and Stephanie. Some homes may just need that pan of cinnamon buns to do the trick!

The subconscious mind is an amazing thing. People weigh very heavily on sensory precept ion, but often overlook the power of smell.  Studies have shown that smell triggers emotions in the brain in a very powerful way. A well all know the home buying process is very emotional and this is great tip to buyers in the mood.

Smells definitely matter in a home. Might as well create a good one.

After 16 years, I have sold homes because of the smell and have also not been able to sell awesome homes because of the smell.  I have encouraged people to bake cookies and leave them for the buyers for a double whammie!

Posted by Heather Littrell, ABR,GRI,SRES Cabarrus County NC (Keller Williams) over 6 years ago

My first home was small, dank and had a smoker in it for 20 years before we bought it.  We knew what we were getting into as the smoker was on the porch smoking it up when we toured the house.

After a couple of years of clean up and whatnot, it was time to sell and move into a bigger house as our family was growing.  I was at the house for most of the showings and would bake cookies while they were there.  It showed that the kitchen appliances worked great and put that smell in the air.  Thank goodness it was the peak of the market and the house sold in a week or so or I might have put on 10 pounds selling the house.

Posted by Chris Mayr (D3 Interactive Marketing) over 6 years ago

Interesting tip.  I've seen agents bake cookies in homes to get the buyers to stay longer but I've never heard of cinnamon.

Christopher and Stephanie,

Now you'll have me hoping I get no guests so that I can eat all the cinnamon buns myself!

Posted by Irene Kennedy Realtor® in Northwestern NJ (Weichert) over 6 years ago

Christopher and Stephanie,

Many agents have suggested cookies, and apple pie and claim that it works wonders. The cinnamon buns are a good idea too.

And, they may make a nice treat for the guests.


Posted by Brian Madigan, LL.B., Broker (RE/MAX West Realty Inc., Brokerage (Toronto)) over 6 years ago

truly so!...taking time to offer the buyers a warm cinnamon bun treat with fresh coffee, ect would establish a modality for talking more about the home. 

Posted by Vicki Sullivan (Ramsey Boyd Realty) over 6 years ago

In response to James' comment # 2- EWWWWW.... I like the cinnamon buns much better LOL I agree and you reminded me about something else. While under contract for a home I had a seller set out snacks for our inspection on a home and the buyers were so impressed.

AHA! I knew it! You cheeky Realtors are trying to control my behaviour! I KNEW IT! I KNEW IT I KNEW IT!

Just kidding. I love it though. Just the sight of those cinammon sticks on your blogg post made my eyes wide, my tongue crave for cider and my mind want for the fireplace.

Today I am teaching a class abotu SEO marketing for a couple dozen Realtors in their office. I am showing up an hour early to brew coffee from my own pot (even though I am bringing a large tub of Starbucks it still smells great!), heat up brownies in a pan on a worm skillet and, of course, get the projector, screen and speakers ready.

I don't care for cinammon but, for some reason, I love cinammon buns. Not sure that I could trust myself in an open house with a tray full of cinammon buns. But, it is a good idea.

Cinnamon buns and a tall cool glass of milk. Too bad I'm on a diet. Maybe I can have them in August :)

I don't know about using pheromones, but I have baked cookies right before open houses. Most people loved the smell upon entering.  I do remember one visitor saying, "I wonder what they're trying to cover up"!  That's the only negative I ever had.  That particular open house we also had hot cinnamon cider simmering so the smell was VERY welcoming.

Our olfactory sense is very strong and invokes lots of memories.  Just about any home baked product induces a great feeling!  I can tell you that certain smells have enabled me to sell a home just as they have caused me to NOT sell a home too!  I remember selling a home that had orange evergreen candles burning.  Not only did they buy the home, they went out and bought the same candles made by Aromatique!  I did the same thing!

You can also put cinnamon sticks in the oven at low heat and acheive the same lovely smell.  But no calories!

I've popped an apple pie in the oven before open houses. Just buy a frozen pie and leave it bake during your open house. Then I leave it at the house for the seller to enjoy.

#46  "You can also put cinnamon sticks in the oven at low heat and acheive the same lovely smell. But no calories!"

I vote for this, because there are no sticky fingers all over the seller's home. Geez what will you people think of next. Stop suggesting that the seller feed the home shoppers - oh, unless you offer to do the baking, clean the baking pans/tools, and then after the showing, vacuum and clean up the fingerprints.

There are ways to get nice aromas in a space without giving visitors an opportunity to make a mess. Fresh flowers is one suggestion. I'm sure you smart folks can come up with more.

I have always been one that uses cinnamon candles instead of the delicious cinnamon roll......less fattening, reusable if the open house is a dud.  I like your idea much better.

Posted by Kay Van Kampen, Realtor®, Springfield Mo Real Estate (RE/MAX Broker, RE/MAX Solutions) over 6 years ago

Cinnabuns sounds like a winner to me. I've had sellers make cookies too. Another agent in our office said she used to cook a ham in the seller's oven during an open house and then take it home to feed her family! :)

Posted by Jim Courtney, CRS, GRI, AHWD (OklaHomes Realty, Claremore Oklahoma) over 6 years ago

I think all of those smells evoke all kinds of responses!  Cinnamon is one of my favorites.  It would drive me nuts to be in the house with the buns though.  I can resist most things but cinnamon rolls are too much!

I know many have discussed whether or not to bake something, but I think this is brilliant, and I love the note with the cinnamon buns.

I did this when selling my own homes in the past. Except I used brownies or cookies. It really does work. While air freshners can be cloying, frest bakes goodies just evoke that feeling of home.

Posted by San Antonio Texas New Homes for Sale ( over 6 years ago

I like this tip and I use it - either with cookies or candles.  Only one time was it shot down - a man came thru an open house I was doing (the home smelled fantastic) and the first thing out of his mouth was "Is there mold, a dead rat in the wall?  What is it since I know you are trying to cover up something nasty smelling".

I had never thought of it that way and to this day wonder if other people think the same way........

For a less caloric idea, I have put drops of vanilla flavoring on a metal bakingpan and place it in the oven at around 200 degrees. Easy at an open house and less filling.

Posted by Drew Peterson over 6 years ago

When I worked in the apartment business we used the same tactic to rent our vacant units.  I worked for a large REIT, and it was ordered from corporate to bake them in our models and put them out as opposed to using the Otis Spunkmeyer coookies that we previously used.  It was incredible how many people came back to our community without us having to make the follow up call.  I didn't know until now that it was linked to pheromones, but we all knew that it was something that worked well based on all of the positive feedback from so many potential renters.

I think you are on to something there, but it is hard to believe that someone will actually buy a home because of the smell.  I do think, however, that it will make them remember and think fondly of that home.  And that can't hurt.

Posted by Jirius Isaac, Real Estate & loans in Kenmore, WA (Isaac Real Estate &TriStar Mortgage) over 6 years ago

Everyone likes a nice treat from time to time.  Freshly cooked cinnamon buns would be a great way to make a good first impression.  A well maintained home would be another.  In addition to setting out the buns, encourage your seller Clients to have their home inspected with a Pre-Listing Inspection by a licensed Home Inspector.  Better to get things in order before the buns go out.  Even cinammon buns cannot overcome a leaking roof.

Thank you,

The owner of one of the most wonderful vegetable and fruit gardens I have ever seen had a great idea.   When the house was open, there were always samples of produce to take home, maybe a jar of jelly, and on at least one occasion a buyer went home with a bottle of wine made on the property.   There were sometimes cookies on the counter also, but the produce and the fresh-cut roses from the yard got the most comments.

We joked that maybe I stopped by to see them instead of going to the grocery store.

Even on a lower level, we realize that most people, if not all people, buy on emotion.  Therefore, we suggest that people trying to sell or rent their home use two-tone paint, instead of just one generic color.  People respond so much better when you do things that trigger their emotions.
