The Master Bedroom .... The Master Suite ...
You see it advertised in glowing terms. That is because this area is as important as the main floor when you are selling your home.
The 'Master' is the retreat from the world for the owner of the home. It supposed to be a serene refuge for relaxing, unwinding, sleeping and let's not forget romance.
It may be just a bedroom or it may have an en suite bathroom and walk-in closet. Even the smallest townhouses now have at the very least an en suite privilege to the bathroom.
In older homes the Master bedroom is only marginally larger and you can forget about an en suite or walk-in unless a renovation has been done.
Never the less the buyers are still dreaming about their perfect Master Suite.
This means you need to show the buyer your Master in the best light possible.
By Staging this area you will help the buyer see the space and how it will fit their lifestyle.
Buyers want that magazine/hotel look. The bed is the focal point of the room.
Buyers want the room to feel spacious - large enough to hold their furniture.
Avoid distractions like a computer area; a large TV or exercise machine.
Allow the buyer to envision themselves here. Make sure the ironing board is away, the laundry hamper is out of sight, your shoes are in the closet and personal items are not on display.
By showing the buyer a neutral,elegant space you will help them see themselves sleeping here. You will allow them to see the possibilities your home offers.
If it is a smaller room in an older home it will help them see the potential for future development.
Show the buyers their dream is possible in your home.
Stage the Master Suite/Bedroom for best effect.
