I have been noticing a pungent smell of cannabis in the outdoor air much more these days, since it’s been legalized. It could be while I am driving or just walking through a downtown street or while entering a restaurant or pub. It is not hard to recognize it due to it’s distinct aroma. I don’t mind it too much though but some people just don’t like it at all.
Last year I had a clients home listed for sale, and shortly after it was listed a family member started smoking cannabis in the house. This was shortly after the time it was legalized. Of course I didn’t know this was happening until a potential buyer visited the home and as soon as they smelled it, they turned around and walked right back out the door.
Of course I had to have a very uncomfortable conversation with my clients. They were very understanding and realized the impact it could and was having on selling their home. They had it addressed immediately, thank goodness. It had been contained to one bedroom but the smell did permeate through most of the house and it settled in the furniture and curtains and even on their clothes. Once the bedding, curtains and clothing had been laundered the smell began to disappear, but it did take a while.
You may want to keep cannabis smoking or use to the outdoors. Unless of course it’s an odorless product being used. The main thing to keep in mind is a fresh smelling home is always more welcoming to your quests and especially to potential buyers if your home is on the market for sale.
