If you're trying to sell a home in today’s challenging real estate market you should add this technique to your strategy. I don't think there is a "SOLD" essential oil but the smell of a house can change the way a buyer feels and thinks when they are about to make a big purchase.
I have personally used smells (baking cookies or cinnamon rolls) when running an open house(s) and I have experienced it with buyers during a showing to create a comforting, deliciously scented atmosphere meant to help the visitor enjoy the home. We all understand the value of home staging, and being an innovative real estate agent, and I think Aromatherapy should be the tool you think of to help sell a home.
There is a variety of essential oils offered, and here are the top 5 we use in our home.

The 4 Benefits for Kids Wifi
#1 - Connectivity
Protecting your kids is as simple as connecting to a Wi-Fi network. When you plug in your KidsWifi, it uses your home Internet connection to create a new Wi-Fi network that is controlled, filtered and monitored the way you want it. Then any wireless device, from computers to tablets to game consoles, can be protected by simply connecting them to your KidsWifi network. Even your kids’ friends can be easily protected!
Set your house rules for which parts of the Internet your kids (and their guests) can visit. Then add exceptions for specific devices to restrict young kids or give older kids more freedom.
Check on the sites your kids are visiting. Look at the whole network or specific devices. Do it from anywhere with Internet access using any browser.
#4 Time Limits
Limit screen time by pausing the Internet. Set bedtimes to prevent late-night browsing. All managed from your phone or any other Internet browser. Promote healthy screen time by going offline for bedtime.

We are about to enter the "oh shit" moment if Bank of Canada (BoC) has confirms they are going to be increasing mortgage rates July 12th. Experts say it will be small (0.25%) so I'll be using that number in the examples below.
#1 - A Rate increase of 25 BPS (0.25%) translates to a $83.00 a month increase in payment.

One of the most common questions I have been asked this year is “When is the bubble going to burst?”
If you can imagine one level deeper than desperate, that would be a great way of describing our inventory levels back in April. We saw over 1,000+ units listed for sale in the Kitchener/Waterloo Market for the second month in a row (June/July). With this sudden supply boom we are seeing prices up over last year (in the range of 19-29% depending on what you read). In April, we had prices up 39-49% so the gains are gone.
Kitchener President James Craig said “June is the fourth consecutive month home sales in the Kitchener-Waterloo area have exceeded 700 units. Historically sales in KW and area have only ever surpassed the 700 unit threshold in a single month three previous times.”
Similar Market Conditions in Cambridge
Cambridge President Jim Robinson said “Sales continue to run at near-record levels, and it appears the market may finally be seeing a bit of relief with new listings continuing to rise,” and “That said, market conditions have been measured in weeks of inventory rather than months since last fall, and that remains the case.”
The average price for a single family home is up 29.2% from last year so it looks like we are back to a healthy normal market. Remember, we are used to 4-6% returns per year, not 40-50%. The bubble didn't burst, the market just corrected. The bad news is rates are going up!
