Most people who are  putting up their home for sale on the Greater Phoenix/Scottsdale market don’t have a lot of available cash to spruce it up. While staging houses is a definite plus, it has it’s costs, as do many of the other suggested “to-dos.” Here are a few of my favorites that are cheap and definetly easy ways to make your home look more inviting to buyers:

 

1. Put away the personal stuff.

Not every buyer looking at a home for sale in Scottsdale appreciates the fact that someone still lives there. So depersonalize. Putting away the following things can help the buyers’ see themselves in the home:

 

  • your pet’s things (toys, litter box, bowls)
  • your medications, toothbrushes and toilet accessories
  • any toys
  • knick-knacks and personal pictures

 

2. Create More Space

Small, closed in spaces are major turnoffs for buyers. Create the illusion of more space by:

 

  • putting away out-of-season clothes or clothes you don’t wear very often to make your closets look bigger
  • taking one piece of furniture out of your bedroom
  • packing up the small appliances in your kitchen to open up the counter space
  • taking out all but four chairs in your dining room, as well as extra table leaves

 

3. Touch On The Trends

 

Kitchen

 

Chances are that some of the buyers are paying attention to celebrity trends. Fenf Shui is a big one, and you can do your part with just a few touches:

 

  • add a fresh bowl of fruit to the kitchen
  • put a comfortable couch or chair on the east side of your living room or den
  • put a green welcome mat on your porch to symbolize opportunity
  • get rid of reds, pillows, blankets, etc.

 

Whether you see or feel a difference doesn’t matter. Keep in mind that you’re trying to appeal to potential buyers of your home for sale in Scottsdale/Phoenix,  not make the home more livable for you. If it helps, pretend that you’re the buyer, seeing the house for the first time.

Excellent and easy tips sellers can do on their own. De-cluttering is #1 on my list.

Clean, no smell and sparkling. Or brownies out of the oven... that's a good idea (reaching) Thank you. Don't mind if I do. (Munch) These are good.
