The master  bedroom is considered the sactuary of the home. Staging the master bedroom to appeal to potentional buyers is critical


Consider the following when staging your master bedroom: 

Gender Netural

Keep the master bedroom neutral to appeal to both genders. Depending on your buyer they may not be interested in loud colours or specific bright colours in the bedroom. This is why neutral colours work best in the master bedroom. 

Make the bed the focal point

Remove unecessary furniute and items making the bed the focal point of the room.  If the room is large enough add a small sitting area in the corner with accent chair. However  in a smaller room, by leaving just a bed and a couple night tables it opens up the room and make the bedroom inviting by focusing on a nicely laid out bed, that is neutral and matches wall and window converings. 

Stage the closet

Closet space can be a deciding factor when it comes to winning over a master bedroon.  The closet should be clean and show any available space and storage. If it is a walk in closet ensure that there is ample lighting and a mirror will also open up the space more.


Ensure access to the window

Potential buyers will want to be able to see out every window in the house, including in the bedroom. It is important that the bed or dresser does not obstruct the window space so that people can see their potential outdoor view.

Spring is one of the most exciting times of year in Real Estate. It is common for activity in the market to increase during this time of year for both home buyers and sellers. It looks as if there were many buyers who also were ahead of the game last month by listing their homes early or buying before the rush.

The average selling prices of all residential, single family, duplexes and condos has seen an increase in price since last month.
