Should You Change the Purpose of a Room When Selling?
As a home stager in Atlanta, this happens to be one of the most frequently asked questions I'm asked. So... here's my advice.
The short answer - yes.
The long answer is that there are variables that play into that decision. Here are a few:
- Understand the demographics of the buyer. Young, old, with kids or without kids helps guide you.
- Does the function of the room today fit across a broad base of prospective buyers?
What always makes sense is to ensure the room is displayed properly. In other words, if you have a bedroom that you're using for a storage room, now is the time to take and purge, redistribute and/or donate.
Here's an example of a room that definitely served it's purpose for the homeowner when they were living in the home. Given that they had moved out, we were able to convert the room to a bedroom from a nursery.
Here's the before picture:
Here's the after picture:
Home was on the market for almost 2 years without an offer. Converting this room and all the others in this home and the owner had a binding contract in 2 weeks.
