Bedroom Updates You Need To Make Before Selling Your Home
Before you list your home, you will want to tackle any updates, changes, or improvements that will help your home sell faster and for a higher profit—and that includes in the bedroom. Here’s some bedroom updates you need to make!
But when it comes to making your bedrooms more appealing to buyers, what updates should you make?
A recent article from realtor.com outlined bedroom improvements that can help your home sell more quickly and profitably, including:
- Clean out your closets. Closet space can be a huge selling point for buyers. But the more clothing, shoes, and other items you have in your bedroom closet, the more cluttered they’ll look—and the less attractive the space will be to prospective buyers. Before you start showing your home, take the time to declutter, clean, and organize your closet.
- Switch bold colors for a more neutral palette. Bold colors can be polarizing; while you may love your fuschia accent wall, it could turn off potential buyers that aren’t big fans of bright pink. If you have any bold walls in your bedroom, take the time to repaint before you sell—and repaint with a more neutral, universally appealing color (for example, off-white or gray).
- Remove personal touches. When you’re living in your bedroom, it makes sense to surround yourself with personal touches, like wedding photos, a banner from your alma mater, or pictures of your kids. But personal effects can make it hard for potential buyers to envision themselves in the space—so before you start showing your home, make sure to remove any personal photos or effects and replace them with more neutral alternatives (for example, a landscape painting).
