If you’re thinking about putting your house up for sale but it’s looking a little bit too ‘well-loved’, there are several ways to spruce it up. Tired, old homes can be given a makeover with a simple fresh coat of paint. This can not only make your property look more modern and appealing, but it can also potentially increase its property value. Both interior and exterior painting can lead to great Returns on Investment (ROIs). A home with newly interior and exterior painting will be worth more and it may also attract a higher number of buyers.
Benefits of Painting the Interior
Making a good first impression with a tidy exterior is important, but the interior of your home should be given just as much attention. Peeling paint inside your home will signify to buyers that you haven’t taken good care of the property and that there may be other problems lurking below the surface. Wallpaper usually turns potential buyers off as well, because it often features busy patterns and makes the house seem outdated. We recommend choosing light, neutral colors for both the interior and the exterior of the home. This is because light colors can open up even a small space, making it appear brighter and larger. Neutral colors can also allow the buyer to visualize themselves living in your home. This helps to de-personalize the property and create a clean slate. We advise against painting entire rooms in bold colors, for the same reasons as above: they go out of fashion or tend to stand out for the wrong reasons.
Painting the Property’s Exterior
The importance of a good first impression on buyers cannot be emphasized enough. And the first impression that potential buyers have of your home is its exterior. It’s vital to make sure that the front of your home is as well-presented as possible. Badly maintained homes or those with a distasteful paint colors will be off-putting to buyers and may well cause them to offer a lower bid or simply look elsewhere. By painting the outer walls of your property, you can increase ‘curb appeal’ and make your home stand out from the neighbors’ houses. Neutral colors are generally recommended because they will appeal to a wider range of potential buyers. Although bold colors can be exciting, they may fall out of fashion or make your home stand out for all the wrong reasons. You can play around with color by painting the trim a bolder shade, to make your property really pop.
Interior and exterior painting can add 200-300% of its investment to your home but done poorly can do the reverse. Only Hire Professional Painters from House & Condo Painters.
