Make Your Bath a Spa

Selling your house? Just remember one simple truth: Handsome homes that are priced accurately sell in every market.

In this article, we're going to focus on one aspect of the Handsome Home - the master bath. An unusual luxury in the 1960's, the master bath has become an absolute necessity in our generation.

Yours might be a small space, a three-quarter tucked into a 6'x 6' space. But it can still be a restful place away from the active areas of the home. Simply scrub it squeaky-clean, and invest in the following updates:

1. Paint. Every bathroom needs to be freshly painted before listing. Choose a restful color for your bathroom wall, such as Behr's 'Himalayan Mist'. The color should evoke restful thoughts.

2. Lighting. The light fixture above the vanity attracts immediate attention by homebuyers and their agents. Install a new fixture, such as the Trump Home Brushed Nickel bath light.

3. Mirror. If your vanity mirror is worn or scratched, replace it with an attractive framed mirror.

4. Towel racks. Unless your towel racks are nearly-new, they should be replaced with an updated design. Be sure to change the toilet paper holder, too.

5. Towels and Bath Mats. Purchase the highest quality towels that you can afford, in a shade that matches your wall color. Be sure to purchase matching bath mats, too. And if your bath requires a shower curtain, purchase a high quality curtain with a very simple design.

Above all, store your cosmetics and toiletries out of site each morning. The countertop should have a fresh bar of soap or liquid soap dispenser, a fragrant unlit candle, and a fresh hand towel.

When prospective buyers step into your master bathroom, you don't want them to feel as if they've invaded your private space. Instead, you want them to feel as if they've stepped into a spa retreat that has been prepared especially for them.

If you update these components of your bathroom and create a clean and clutter-free area for rest and relaxation, prospective buyers will pause and relax in your master bath. And that's the goal. The longer a buyer stands quietly and admires your master suite, the more likely an offer will be written.
