Paint help for selling your home

Are you trying to sell your home? Painting the walls and trim of your home can add instant value. It shows potential buyers that you have taken care of your house.

A fresh coat of paint cleans up any marks and holes made by you over the years. It looks less tired and makes it look fresh and clean. Clean houses sell faster and for more money. The buyer doesn’t have to wait to move in. Paint makes it move in ready!

When picking colours for resale it is very important that you take your personal preferences off the table. It is best to pick colours that are neutral and trendy for the potential buyer. There are some colours that are polarizing. People either love them or hate them. This will cut the potential people you can sell to in half. Avoid that by choosing something that is neutral but not boring.

Three colours that have proven track records for this year are grey, off white or cream, and a light taupe. Sherwin Williams Grayish SW6001, Drift of Mist SW9166 and Reflection SW7661 are examples of the neutral colours that you could use to prepare your home for sale.

The quality of the paint job is also very important. If the paint is not professionally applied, it could devalue the home. Having paint on the ceiling and on the trim, can make the home look messy and uncared for. If you are going to invest in painting your home, it should add value. My advice to you would be to hire a professional painter.
