PAINTING TO SELL!

23 July, 2019

Almost without fail, if you read any ‘Preparing your home to Sell’ article, you will see reference to the benefits a fresh coat of paint brings to the sales process. It is probably one of the most effective ways to add value to your property, and something you can do yourself.  Here’s how;

Exterior Painting

The aim is to achieve the highest sales price for your property - and a fresh coat of paint goes a long way to help achieve this. Possibly easier said than done - for time, effort and cost reasons. A cheaper option is to clean the exterior ie a pressure clean. Or you can simply freshen up the window frames if they are wooden.

Paint the Front Door

First impressions count and a freshly painted front door is a winner! Need some inspiration? Here is a great article from Resene that provides entrance way tips and ideas.  

The Famous Neutral Palette! 

As much as a pink room or feature red wall is what you love, a buyer may not be able to see past this when imagining themselves living in the house. Neutral doesn’t need to mean white on white on white! Click here for some neutral colour inspiration.

Perimeter Fence or Wall 

Kerb appeal is not a myth! A fresh coat of paint on the perimeter wall or fence goes a long way to making a home look loved and cared for.
