Murphy beds always seemed a bit excessive to me; just too permanent and too large.  But since seeing one at one of my recent sold properties, I’ve had a change of mind.  It worked perfectly for this 850 square feet, 2 bedroom condo, by providing a queen size bed and generous wall to wall storage around it.  With the bed being so easily stored when not in use, it kept the guest room looking tidy and free for other uses.  More so, it was a great selling feature that helped distinguish the condo from other competitors around the area.  While initial costs for a Murphy bed may seem daunting compared to that of a sofa bed, it’s worth the investment for living a clutter-free condo lifestyle.  And when it’s time to list and sell the place, it just may be one of the features that help you catch that buyer with the right price and minimal time on the market (This condo was sold in 19 days)!
