Stage your homes outdoor space for great Arizona living

Staging your home for sale?  In the Verdes our outdoor space needs to be staged as well.  We are fortunate to have comfortable low humidity and bug free evenings, so outdoor living areas are a vital part of your property.  Buyers moving here want to see themselves not only in your house, but on your back patio as well!

You don’t have to have a knockout view or a pool to have an inviting outdoor space:

  • Have a plan to set up areas in your outdoor space to feature your landscaping or a water feature such as a fountain or spa (how relaxing is the sound of running water….).
  • Set up separate areas for outdoor dining, informal or not.  Patio furniture can accommodate any level of sophistication, depending on your taste and budget.
  • Comfortable conversation pits with an outdoor fire pit or tables to rest the beverage and appetizers, or an area for the after dinner conversations long into the night with family and friends. The winter months can get chilly, so an overhead propane space heater is a welcome addition to the patio.
  • A grilling or cooking area with bar seating nearby for your grilling coaches.
  • Don’t forget the basic area to enjoy the sun during the day with nice reclining lounge chairs. An umbrella is a nice touch of color, especially when your skin has a touch of color.

I know many buyers looking at properties in Arizona can be smitten with a great outdoor area.  Don’t neglect to stage this area as well!

  1. A very good point to be made. I know in building our new home, there is as much thought going into the outdoor living as the indoor living. In AZ it’s a highlight of any home and a major reason so many snowbirds come south to winter – to be able to sit outside, mosquito free, and enjoy the cool but comfortable AZ evenings.
