To Paint Or Not To Paint Before You Sell Your Home
When you are preparing to sell your home, there are many things that you may want to consider. Some people may decide to spend a lot of money on home improvement projects, in order to bring in more money when the sell is finalized. Projects such as; staging your home, improving the landscaping, replacing carpet, installing a new roof, and many other projects come to the minds of potential sellers. It is important to consider how much of an investment you are willing to make, based on how much of a financial return you may receive from a potential buyer. One project that you may wish to consider, when you are selling your home, is painting the interior or the exterior of your humble abode. Painting is one of the most popular home improvement projects that a seller can do, and it is one that will greatly improve the appearance of your surroundings, yet will not cost too much money, in the process.
You may want to repaint all of your home, from the outside to the inside, or maybe just spruce up a few rooms that need special attention. A few things to consider include; how long has it been since your home was last painted, do you have a lot of nail holes or scuff marks on your walls, and are there any murals or accent walls that should be covered up, in order to create a more inviting, neutral environment.
Most painting professionals recommend using neutral colors throughout your home, in order to attract potential buyers. That being said, you don’t necessarily have to resort to all white walls. For the exterior and the interior of your home, consider current popular paint choices, such as; blues, grays, and even light beiges. There are many shades of these colors that are appropriate for the exterior of your home, as well as for any room within your home. Remember to not forget about the baseboards and trim work, because a fresh coat of paint on those areas can also do a lot to improve the crisp, clean appearance of your property.
Painting your home, both the interior and exterior not only adds curb appeal, but can add value to your property! If you’re interested in painting your home before putting it on the market, contact Noel Painting today!
