Showcase all of the bedrooms in your home as bedrooms! Regardless of how many bedrooms your home has in addition to your master-bedroom suite, you should set up each bedroom so buyers will be well aware that the room is an extra bedroom. Buyers too often reject a home because they don’t realize that a room the homeowner has been using as a gym or office is in fact a bedroom. Buyers need to see bedrooms as they were originally designed.

When you prepare a bedroom, think about the type of person who is most likely to purchase your home. For example, if you live in an area that’s attractive to first-time home buyers who have small children, make sure your bedrooms look safe, yet inviting. If you live in an area that caters to retirees or downsizing empty-nesters, remember that less is more for these buyers. You’ll want to make sure your house projects an image of being maintenance-free, efficient and no-nonsense. Help buyers imagine themselves living in your home and make sure the changes you make will suit their preferences.

If your home has more than four bedrooms and no designated office space, you can stage one room with a small writing desk and chair as a suggested use for multiple purposes. Or you might want to create a guest retreat with a chair, side table and small lamp, and a hardcover book and antique leather suitcase waiting to be unpacked. Use your creativity and plant suggestions so buyers will be able to envision the purpose of each room, but with flexibility built-in.
