If there is a space inside the home that most people have a problem presenting well, it would be the room that isn’t quite big enough for a bedroom, but too big for a home office. A lot of houses have them. We will call it the small bedroom. We will call it this, because, as your real estate agent should tell you, this awkward space should be presented as a bedroom. Why?
