Consider Painting Your Home Before Selling It
Are you interested in gaining the most out of your property sale? If you are looking to sell your home, it is essential to understand that many homebuyers choose a home with emotion rather than logic. A home is personal to the individual, a place to spend time with their family and something that reflects their personal style. And, one of the first things that people see when forming their first impression is the home’s exterior. So, it is important to pick the right color scheme with the paint utilized and to update colors prior to placing your home onto the market for the best opportunity for a sale.
Curb appeal refers to the attraction value of your home as it is viewed from the street. The way your home looks when it is first viewed makes a lasting impression on the prospective buyer. And, as you know, first impressions always count. If your home presents high curb appeal, it has the potential to hook the buyer, increasing your opportunity for a sale. One of the best ways to improve your home’s curb appeal is through its exterior paint.
When painting your home to re-sell, choosing the correct colors can make a huge difference to the price you eventually receive. For example, one shade of yellow on the exterior of your house and it will sell really quickly, but choosing the wrong shade of yellow can lose you a sale.
Always make sure your property fits in with those surrounding it. Look around at brochures that demonstrate various color combinations of exterior paint to help you select the most ideal one. Don’t limit your paint scheme to two colors, as you will find three works much better.
In terms of resale, paint gives you the most "bang for your buck" and spending just a little time and money goes a long way.
