If you are considering selling your home, consider getting it painted first, inside or out (or both!), to help it sell faster and for more money. First impressions are priceless and a fresh coat of paint adds curb appeal and shows buyers that you take proper care of your home. Here are a few reasons why painting first before you put your house on the market might be a good idea:
What prospective buyers see when they view your home can effect whether they decide to buy your home or not. If your home has outdated interior colors, or peeling, fading or flaking exterior paint, don’t take a chance and scare buyers away. Talk with your Real Estate agent for color suggestions as they have their finger on the pulse of home buying trends.
Fresh Paint Feels Newer
A fresh coat of interior paint shows prospective home buyers that your home has been well-cared for. Most home buyers want a home that is move-in ready. Faded, dingy, dirty walls and cabinets with scuff marks and scratches deter buyers and mean added work for them, which can result in a low-ball offer or no offer at all!
Color trends come and go, but homes with a neutral color palette can sell faster because its easier for buyers to envision what a house will look like with added colors, but the opposite is not true however. It’s much harder for buyers to see past bold, dark or bright colors they don’t like to see the potential.
