Today when buyers tour homes, two things are catching their attention, kitchens and master baths. When prepping your home for the market it is important to keep these two spaces in mind and give them extra attention when it comes to cleanliness, paint colors, and sensory experiences.
The kitchen is often referred to as the heart of the house. For today’s home buyer, it’s not just a place to prepare meals, it’s also the hang-out space for family and friends. But let’s first think about the functional aspects of your kitchen. When a prospective buyer sees a cluttered kitchen, they become concerned with being able to spread out and prepare a meal. By clearing the counters of small appliances, dishes and food, you create the perception that this could be a great work space.
If you happen to have a large, open kitchen look for ways to make it seem more inviting – a place the kids would gather around after school.
The Master Bath
Similar to the kitchen, the master bath must be both functional and inviting. And like the kitchen, there are a few things you can do to make it show well. Decluttering counters, hiding hampers and limiting other items can make the space feel bigger and more functional. Once you’ve decluttered, it’s now time to make your master bath feel like a relaxing retreat. Even if you don’t have a big bathroom or a big budget, little things like fresh paint and simple accessories can change the feel of a space. Thoughtful arrangement can make a huge impression on prospective buyers!
Chances are your bathroom doesn’t look like the one pictured here – and that’s ok. All you have to do is make it feel like a relaxing retreat!
