There are a lot of gorgeous PebbleCreek homes for sale. The weather in Goodyear, AZ, is fantastic, the prices are affordable, and the designs and styles are diverse enough to appeal to any buyer. If you want to sell your PebbleCreek home for a competitive price, one of the most important things you can do is to stage your home properly. The problem is if you are like most people, you don’t know the first thing about effective staging. Luckily, staging is fairly simple and inexpensive. Here are a few tips that will have you staging your home like a professional.

Staging tip 1: Effective, Not Expensive

If you are staging your home, don’t think that you need to spend a fortune on all of the latest furniture, fixtures, and products. Creating the important WOW Factor doesn’t have to be expensive. Creating focal points is important to guide the prospective buyer’s eyes around the room and showcase important room features like a view. A few large significant, statement pieces in either art or furniture is much more pleasing to the eye than a lot of small items.
Fresh neutral paint and clean flooring give a home a clean move-in ready feel and are worth the monies spent. Most active adult buyers do not want to take on a project and shy away from homes that have not been maintained. A clean freshly painted home will attract more buyers than the competition.

Staging Tip 2: Value of Updates

Buying a new home is desirable for many reasons but the number one is the buyer believes everything important is finished and will last for years to come. Visit a model home center to see what is new in design and finishes. For a resale, especially an older home to compete, adding some updates will make your home much more appealing.
Adding stainless steel appliances and stone counters in a kitchen will add dollar for dollar value and make your home more desirable to a buyer. Carpet and tile flooring should be clean and if significantly worn, should be replaced. Again the investment will bring a dollar return and a quicker sale.

Updates in a bath can be simple like mirror and lighting changes. A neutral and fresh bath with some color added with towels and accessories will be attractive. Plumbing remodels are also attractive, but the return on the investment is not always one hundred percent. Landscaping and curb appeal are also important because that is the first impression a home will give to a prospective buyer. Freshen your landscape with a trim and add some color with a few pots of flowers. It will surely invite and welcome the buyer to your home.
