Many homeowners ponder if its worth painting their home before selling. Is the time and investment going to be worth it or should they simply list and sell their home as it is? While there is no definite proof, many real estate agents highly recommend a freshly painted home is one of the ways to increase the value when selling.
Read on to learn 3 factors to consider if wondering if painting your home will increase its value when selling:
- Create a Positive First Impression for Buyers
- Painting the Interior
- Painting the Exterior
Create a Positive First Impression for Buyers
Painting your home can make your house stand out from the crowd when selling. It takes only a few seconds for someone to form an opinion, so it’s important to ensure their first impression is a good one. A freshly painted roof and/or home can make a potential buyer fall in love with your home which could then increase your chances of them offering the asking price, especially if they have their heart set on your house as their new home.
Painting the Interior
Painting the interior walls and ceilings of your home before selling is a great way to give the inside of your home a makeover. Everyone has varying tastes therefore consider using neutral tones that are more likely to blend in and suit most styles and colours of furnishings and décor. A potential buyer may be attracted to the fact there is no painting to be done and your home is ready to move into.
Painting the Exterior
The front exterior is the first image potential buyers will receive of your home. If the outside of your home is showing signs of wear and tear it could lead to a lower offer being placed on your home. Whether a freshen up of the current colour or a new colour, the exterior of your home that can be painted could include external walls, driveways, garage doors and front doors.
