When preparing to buy or sell your home consider hiring a professional Realtor. Hiring a professional Realtor will save you time any money.
Potential buyers are very critical of everything in your house. Before you put your house up for sale you need to do a walk through and look at the paint on the walls as critically as a buyer would. Walk around the exterior as well. If there is chipped or faded paint, buyers may not be as interested in your home as a freshly painted one down the block. Call a a quality Painting Contractor
Just because dark red walls in the dining room fit your style doesn't mean the potential house buyer will like it. Everyone has a different style taste and buyers may take an immediate dislike to dark colors or to bold bright colors.
Select a soft neutral color to paint the walls in your home before you put it up for sale. Soft neutral paint will also make the room appear brighter and larger. This is a big plus for home buyers.
Also paint any "gender specific" bedrooms with a neutral color such as beige or off white. Your little girl may love the bright pink walls, but if someone that looks at your house has a boy, they will see an immediate need to paint the room before they can move in.
Look over all of the trim around windows and doors. A fresh coat of white paint will draw attention to the door and windows, making them much more inviting and welcoming. Painting the ceiling a soft white will also appear to make it seem higher, giving the effect of a much more spacious room.
Kitchen cabinets are a big concern to home buyers. If your house has older, outdated cabinets the buyer will see dollar signs and an expensive remodel. You can freshen the kitchen cabinets with a coat of paint. It will make them stylish and bright.
If you have a porch with railings, give them a fresh coat of paint. Shutters fade after months or years in the sun. You can match the paint as close as possible, or you can change it to give your house a new look. People will appreciate the fact that the house has been freshly painted. That may make a big difference in your house being sold or not.
