Show The Children's Bedroom

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

 One of the most under advertised rooms in many listings happens to be the children's bedroom. I am not sure why but most of the time the Agents focus on other features of a property. As a general rule most people identify the number of bedrooms required for their home as one of the most important criteria in their home search. Many times it is difficult to get good bedroom photos but highlighting one key feature can be attractive.

One helpful hint when taking  photo's of  a children's bedrooms is simply hightlighting a feature. Here is an example of taking a plain bed and adding some "kid creativity" by taking unnecessary articles and make them work for the listing.

Home shoppers with children look for potential properties that will appeal for their children. The goal is to take a fun picture which can go a long way as it may be the catalyst to a showing.Toys and knick knacks can be wonderful props for show casing bedrooms. Getting the children to  be involved in the process is also a way to reduce the stress and insecurities about moving. I recommend reviewing your listing photos to see if you can get a little more out of this key feature of a home.

Other ideas are to highlight the size of the back yard and if it is fenced. This is appealing to home buyers with young children. Highlighting the school districts in which the property sits. Some home buyers in my area want their childern to go to a particular school. So, they re-locate to that school district.

I think this is interesting... I went through a GL Homes community and the models all had gorgeous kids rooms...

my wife and I were both visualizing our son living in there...

then I walked back and forth between two kids rooms via their Jack and Jill Bathroom

there was something missing!

Something in each room was just not quite right

I noticed each had a gorgeous alcove decorated to match the theme of the room...

and the Alcove was created where the closets SHOULD be.. meaning the kids rooms had no closets!!

they showed amazingly well... but whose kids can live w/out a closet to store clothes and toys??
