Stainless Steel Cleaning

With more people than ever staying at home, this year's spring cleaning is getting some extra attention. Whether you're trying to get your kitchen spotless before adding it to the inventory of Las Vegas homes for sale or you just want to make your home look great, learning how to clean stainless steel appliances the right way can make a huge difference. 

Luckily, a few of our REALTORS® are cleaning pros. They've pulled together this list of their top secrets for making your stainless steel sparkle. 

Before you start cleaning, you'll want to make sure you have some soft microfiber cloths. This is your best option as they're non-abrasive and won't cause scratches. 

Always avoid things that can damage the surface of your appliances, including steel wool, scouring powders, ammonia, or bleach. Instead, try one of these four simple and effective cleaning methods.

  1. Vinegar and Mineral Oil
    This may sound more like a recipe for salad dressing than a cleaning technique, but stick with us! First, you'll want to gather your supplies. You'll need your microfiber cloths, white vinegar in a spray bottle, and mineral oil. Always avoid food-based oils, like olive oil or vegetable oil, as they can go rancid. You may also want to have some paper towels handy. Start by determining the direction of the grain (horizontal or vertical) on your stainless steel appliances and make sure that you clean in the same direction. Spray down the appliance with the vinegar and wipe it down using the soft cloth (or paper towels). This should take off the first layer of grime and start to reveal some shine. Once you've removed all the vinegar, dip a soft cloth in just a bit of oil and use it to polish the surface. Make sure to rub in the same direction as the grain. Keep in mind that a little bit goes a long way, and you can always go back for more. With just a little bit of elbow grease, all of the streaks and marks should disappear, leaving you with a shiny surface that looks brand new.

Las Vegas Plants

Great landscaping is a vital component for any home. Not only does landscaping improve the curb appeal of your home, but it creates a relaxing space that your family will want to use. Las Vegas has a distinct desert climate that requires certain types of vegetation. Our REALTORS® compiled a list of plants that are ideal candidates for your Las Vegas home. 

  1. Cacti
    No list of desert-friendly vegetation would be complete without the cacti. Since the cacti can store water in its stems, it's perfect for a climate with low amounts of precipitation. Cacti also add greenery to your landscaping. When the cacti bloom, they lend even more color to your landscaping. Different cacti species come in various sizes, making it easy to find cacti that fit the space where you want more vegetation.
  1. Palm Trees
    Palm trees lend a luxurious touch to your outside areas. Though palm trees do require frequent watering when they're young, once they're a few years old, they're a hearty, durable addition to your landscaping. Established palm trees can withstand extreme heat and occasional frost. Some palms grow as tall as 60 feet, making them an excellent choice if you want to add privacy to your yard.

Landscaping Trends

Spring will be at our doorstep before you know it, and you can bet our real estate agents are ready! The arrival of spring brings a lot of opportunities, but as a homeowner, one of the best things about spring is that it offers a chance to spruce up your landscaping.

Of course, over our many years offering Las Vegas homes for sale, we've learned that Las Vegas lawns come with a few unique challenges. Not to worry! Facing a challenge is a great way to encourage creativity, and these landscaping ideas will help you revitalize your property this spring. 

  1. Go Native
    There are endless benefits to choosing landscape plants that are native to the region you live in. They're readily available and are perfectly suited to your climate, so you won't ever have to worry about whether or not they can survive. These days, nurturing native plants is considered not only a great way to make your landscape look its best, but also to help support your local environment. And in case you're worried that "native" gardening in Las Vegas means you're stuck with a prickly cactus garden, you'll be happy to know that there are countless varieties of native trees, shrubs, and groundcovers that will thrive in your yard.

Decluttering to Sell a Home - Wardley Real Estate

If you're planning to put your Las Vegas home for sale, one of the most important parts of getting your house ready is getting rid of clutter. Our real estate agents know it helps with open houses to have as few personal possessions as possible so that potential buyers can imagine filling the space with their own belongings. Studies have shown that a decluttered home sells faster, and at a higher price point. Still, the issue remains—what to do with all that stuff.

A lot of things can probably be donated, given away, or thrown out. It's also a good idea to have a big yard sale to unload some old, unwanted items. Still, you're going to be left with a lot. It can't go back into your old house, and your new house probably isn't ready for it yet. If you've found yourself in this tricky spot, renting a storage unit may be the solution you're looking for, but it's important to choose wisely.
