It’s such an exciting feeling when you finally move into your Terravita Scottsdale home. But as soon as you move in, you might realize you’re missing some essential items such as a ladder or maybe a flashlight. You’ll want to make sure you’re ready for every scenario that pops up. So, if you make sure you have the below items, you should be ready for anything and not be caught by surprise. 

Wet-Dry Vacuum

It’s going to happen. You’re going to end up spilling something at some point. A wet-dry vacuum can handle just about every spill in your Terravita Scottsdale home. 

Fire Extinguisher

While you hopefully will never have to use one, it’s always a good idea to have a fire extinguisher in your Terravita Scottsdale home. You might need it for a stove fire or maybe a candle that catches something on fire. 

Extension Cord Organizer

Extension cord organizers are great in keeping your cords knot-free and easy to find. You also want one that you can use outdoors.  

Adult Tools

You might already own a drill, screwdriver, hammer, etc. But being a Terravita Scottsdale homeowner requires a few additional tools such as a stud finder, hand saw, ratchet set, and pry bar.


Headlamps come in handy so you can work hands-free switching out a faucet, changing a lightbulb, etc. 

Emergency Preparedness Kit

This might not be as essential for a home in Terravita Scottsdale. But if you have a home up north or in the forest, an emergency preparedness kit is a necessity. In the kit, you should have cash, food, water, medications, flashlight, batteries, first-aid kit, and a change of clothing among other things. FEMA has a list. You can go to their website for more info. 


Not just any ladder will do. Assess if you might need an extension ladder, depending on the height of you ceiling/roof. Also decide if you need a heavy-duty ladder that’ll support tools, paint cans, etc. 

Whether you’re a first-time home buyer or not, at some point, you’re probably going to tackle a DIY project. That’s what YouTube tutorials are for. Making sure you have the above items will make any project a little easier in your Terravita Scottsdale home.
