When you sell your home, you want to sell it as quickly—and for as much money—as possible. And one room that can play a major role in that? Your bedroom.
So how, exactly, can you frame your bedroom in a way that helps you sell your home fast—and for a higher price?
Here are a few easy bedroom improvements that can help your home sell more quickly and profitably:
- Upgrading the lighting. You want your bedroom to feel open and bright. A quick and affordable way to create that bright, spacious feeling is to replace bedroom lights with LED lights. Depending on your bedroom’s setup, you can also open the curtains or blinds to let in more natural light.
- Cleaning out your closets. Closet space is a huge selling point for many buyers—so, if you want your home to sell quickly and profitably, you want to show off the spaciousness of your closets. Before you start showing your home, make sure to clean out your closets and pare down your clothes; that way, potential buyers will see how much space your closet has to offer, instead of getting distracted by all of your stuff.
- Painting the walls a neutral shade. You may love bright bedroom walls—but bright shades can turn off some buyers. For a more universal appeal, consider painting your bedroom in a more neutral shade, like gray or off-white.
