Stay focused when staging rooms
Rooms that have many uses can confuse or deter homebuyers. When staging, define each room by focusing on just one purpose. Determine who your most likely target market will be, whether it’s young professionals, families with children, or empty nesters. Then present your room to fit their needs. If you’ve been using an area as a guest room/kids play area/home office, pick the one use that best suits your prospective buyers.

While it’s interesting to note trends in the national picture, rapidly-changing economic news, regional disparities and changes in legislation make it all the more important to consult a local real estate professional, who can help you evaluate your choices to make an informed decision.
A master bedroom that appeals to both sexes
Whether you’re getting your home ready for sale, or redecorating for your own enjoyment, it’s important to remember that a master bedroom’s décor should be equally appealing to both sexes. It should feel like a calm refuge, not a frilly boudoir, so avoid features that are too gender-specific. Instead, select a neutral shade for the walls and choose bedding with solid colours, stripes or geometric patterns. Keep accessories to a minimum, with a good mix of masculine and feminine lines. Then relax and enjoy!
