Tips to get your Arizona home sold

1. Know your audience

Many of the people moving to Arizona are retirees. Thus, you may want to focus your promotion efforts on that demographic. While some baby boomers are beginning to use the Internet, many are still more comfortable with old-fashioned methods.

A big one is to simply get in their car and drive around in neighborhoods that appeal to them. Therefore, keeping up the outward appearance of your home is extremely important for catching their eye.

2. Clean up the clutter

Once you’ve caught a potential buyer’s eye with the outside of the home, don’t ruin it once they step inside. Clean up any clutter and keep it out of sight.

Stage the rooms with simple, neutral furnishings and remove personal items like pictures or bold decorations. This helps buyers envision themselves living in your home.

3. Update your kitchen

Country style kitchens are popular among Arizona buyers right now. Depending on the current style of your kitchen you may want to change up the look of it a bit.

A full remodel isn’t always necessary as that is an expense that probably won’t get a great ROI. Simply repainting colorful cabinets to either warm or cool grey can do the trick. For the finishing touch you can swap out the countertops for a sleek soapstone.

4. Update the pool

Many areas in Arizona see some pretty hot temperatures, thus pools are an excellent selling point, especially for out-of-towners. Putting in a whole new pool might be a bit of a big project, but updating your existing pool can add just what you need to catch a buyer’s eye.

5. Price to sell

Choosing the right list price for your home is tricky. Set it too low and buyers may wonder what hidden problems your home has. Plus, you’ll end up with less money in your pocket.

However, if you price it too high you could end up with the same problem. Your home will sit too long on the market and buyers will begin to wonder what is wrong with it. You may end up having to drop the price and settle for a much lower amount than you had hoped for.
