Insider Tips

When showing your home, it’s important to remove any offending odors that might turn a prospective buyer off. The following nifty tricks will help you eliminate any off-putting lingering scents and ensure your place smells fresh and clean:
  • Use kitty litter mixed with baking soda in a pan to neutralize musty or bad odors in a room.
  • To remove the smell of smoke, place bowls of white vinegar around the house to absorb the odor.
  • Run a few lemon rinds through the garbage disposal and follow with cold water to dispel the garbage smell.
Client of the Month: Chad Rhoton
Chad, a mortgage broker with Amp Lending, enlisted Jody Lockshin to assist him with an investment purchase. After relocating back to Austin, Chad realized the tax and rental income benefits of purchasing a duplex to live in one side and lease out the other. It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Chad on his investment!

Habitat Hunters agents are experts in capitalization rates and rental value on investment property.  We can help you find the perfect investment for you to occupy or lease out - just drop us a line.
