4 Ways to Set Up the Perfect Home Office in Your Santa Cruz Home for Sale

Posted by Lauren Spencer on Monday, November 30th, 2009 at 9:30am.

If you have a Santa Cruz home for sale, every room needs to be just right. Most people think about the kitchens and bedrooms, but these days a great looking home office can make a huge impact too. Check out a few ways you can make a big impact:

Designate the right space

Whether it's a spare bedroom or a computer nook, you need to specify a separate place to do business. Make sure the area has enough room so that you can set up a desk, chair, computer and a printer without making it look messy.

Clean your area

To really have a good home office, the space needs to be neat. To make your home office look its best to potential buyers, get rid of clutter and only retain the essentials. 

Don't waste money

Just because you have a home office doesn't mean you need to go broke trying to furnish it when preparing your Santa Cruz home for sale. Think about wants versus needs first. Then once you get the necessities, use any left over money to buy office supplies such as ink cartridges, computer paper and more.

Add a decorative touch

Now that you have what you need, it's okay to add some decorative style. Hang artwork. Add a few plants.  But, remember to keep it simple and neutral so that potential buyers can easily imagine it as their own home office.

Many people don't think of the importance of a home office when preparing their Santa Cruz home for sale. But with so many people working from home, a dedicated space for a home office is a great selling point.
