5 Super-Simple Ways to Make Buyers Fall in Love With Your AZ Golf Course Home
Your REALTOR® will walk through your home with you and give you expert tips and tricks you can use to help impress buyers, but check out these five simple things you can do right now:
- Let in natural sunlight
- Clear the clutter
- Invest in organization
- Make buyers feel welcome
- Boost your curb appeal
Here’s a closer look at each.
Tip #1 to Make Buyers Fall in Love With Your Home: Let in Natural Sunlight
Buyers love to see bright, open spaces, but they can’t do that if your blinds are drawn and all you have to illuminate your space is artificial light. Remove heavy drapes and stick to simple window coverings before you list your home for sale – and when buyers come to call, make sure all the blinds are up and every light in the house is on. The brighter, the better.

Tip #2 to Make Buyers Fall in Love With Your Home: Clear the Clutter
When you’re selling your home, you’re selling more than four walls. You’re selling a lifestyle, and you want to show buyers that if they purchase your home, it’s going to be easy to keep clean. That means decluttering every room from top to bottom; if you’re not sure whether there’s too much of anything (including furniture) in any room, the answer is yes, there is. Be ruthless! Go through every room and take out things you haven’t used in a year, things that gather too much dust, and things that you’re unlikely to want in your new home. Then, donate, sell or junk the items.
Pro Tip: If there’s something you can’t part with but it’s contributing to clutter in your home, put it in storage until you move.

Tip #3 to Make Buyers Fall in Love With Your Home: Invest in Organization
Buyers want to see that there’s a place for everything (which is part of the reason you decluttered after following Tip #2). Invest in organizational tools you can use to help carry all that hard work over; think about built-in or temporary closet shelving, corner shelves in laundry rooms, and pull-out bins you can use beneath bathroom cabinets.

Tip #4 to Make Buyers Fall in Love With Your Home: Make Them Feel Welcome
You want your home to be a welcoming place where buyers can envision themselves spending time, so put in the effort to make them feel right at home when they come see your space. Get a new welcome mat that complements your front door, leave a charming (and small) metal bucket full of ice and bottled water on the table, and set out pre-wrapped candies (not chocolate) for buyers to enjoy as they tour.

Tip #5 to Make Buyers Fall in Love With Your Home: Boost Your Curb Appeal
Buyers start forming an impression of your home before they ever set foot through the door, so you want to get them started right. Clean up your home’s exterior, pull weeds from the rocks in your yard, and make sure every window is sparkling-clean. Add new house numbers, upgrade your mailbox, and power-wash the sidewalk while you’re at it.
