What are you going to do about it?
Do what you can, and make it feel like a spa!
- Declutter! Less is more with staging! Counters should be clear. Sell the space, not your cosmetics and hair products. Get in the habit of putting everything away when you are done with it. Shower too…at least try to minimize what is in there and keep it out of the direct line of sight when they first walk in the door.
- Make sure it is always clean top to bottom. I am a fan of the daily shower sprays to keep the shower looking and smelling clean. Wiping counters daily is a great habit to get into, and keep the cammode and mirror shining!
- Be sure to have fresh towels out. Remember…think more spa, less bachelor pad. Keep the towels that need to stay in the room fresh…nothing says "buy me" like towel funk!
- Avoid overpowering scents. I have mentioned this before, but some people are sensitive, others think you are covering something up, while others just might not like it. You don't want the buyers to remember you as the "rose scented house that you could taste for an hour afterwards" house!
- Keep wall art and accessories to a minimum. You want to draw attention to the features of the room.
- Make any repairs that could cause a delay in closing.
- NO RUGS!!! You can have a bath mat for showering, but hang it over the tub when you are finished. Most bathrooms are not that large and space sells homes. Rugs make spaces feel smaller by stopping the eye from traveling through the room.
