If you’re trying to sell your house and want to increase the value, don’t redo the bathrooms or get that colony of raccoons removed.  Just do this:

Buy some lemons and oranges.

A new study found that a citrus smell can make your house seem like it’s worth an extra $80,000.

Researchers in Australia had people check out a house for sale, but the place was filled with different smells for different people.  Then they asked the people how much they thought the house should sell for.  Here are the results:

1.  Citrus, $648,000.

2.  Brownies, $626,000.

3.  Fresh baked bread, $617,000.

4.  Coffee, $598,000.

5.  Chicken, $571,000.

6.  Socks and feet, $567,000.

So yeah, if you can make your house smell like oranges or brownies instead of athlete’s foot, it’ll seem like it’s worth a lot more money.
