How to Improve the "Appeal" of Your Home

Aroma plays a subtle but important role in a buyer's decision. Air fresheners, candles and diffusers can do the trick. Your home will smell great and be more enticing to buyers.However, don't overdo it and do not use cheap plug-ins causing the smell to overwhelm potential buyers.


Trimming hedges and trees and cleaning the windows also helps. If your home looks unappealing from the outside, buyers will be more critical about details on the inside. Plant some colorful plants to make your home look more interesting or put some multi-colored plants in pretty pots; these are easy to find in the Sonoran Desert.


Changing the door hardware adds a sparkle and is one of the first introductions buyers have when entering your home. Painting or staining the front door is another nice welcoming touch!


Playing light classical or new age music makes your home inviting.


Too many personal pictures hanging on the walls makes it hard for the potential buyers to imagine living in your home.


Remove the clutter; rent a storage space if necessary; it will make your home feel more spacious.Kitchens tend to have too many gadgets and magnets on refrigerators are a big NO NO. 


Paint is the cheapest way to make your home really sparkle but neutral is better!


Turn on the fireplace in cooler months; turn on the spa and pool lights at night. Suggest to the showing agent to bring his/her clients back at night if there are sparkling city light or canyon views.


Cleanliness is so important; while selling your home consider having your home profesionally cleaned on a weekly basis.


This is a great time to buy new upscale bedding and towels. You get to take them with you and the bedrooms and bathrooms look so much prettier.
