When you are trying to sell your home, painting the exterior may not be something that’s on top of your list. But it should be, and there are many reasons why it is a good idea to repaint your home before you put your home on the market. L.W. Winslow Painting, Inc wants to help you sell your home easier. So let’s talk about a few of the tips that you can do to help your home look better.
Paint Before Listing House for Sale
When you repaint your house it gives your home a nice makeover. Your home will become more appealing to the eyes of potential buyers. When people come to look at your home or look at pictures of your home on the market, having a newly painted home can draw more people in to look at it. Not only will it make the curb appeal better but it can increase the property’s market value. If you are trying to sell your home and you can sell your home for more than you could without painting it. Then isn’t it a win?
Clean Exterior House Before Painting
Before you dive right into the painting part of the exterior of your home. You first need to make sure that you clean it. You need to make sure you get rid of all of the dirt and fix any damages that may have happened to your home. As nice as paint can make your house look if your home is physically damaged paint cannot protect that part of your home. Once you have fixed any physical damages to the surface of your home and have cleaned off all of the dirt and smoothed out any rough parts such as paint chips on your house then you can move on to choosing a paint color.
Choose a Good Exterior Paint Color
When it comes to choosing a color to paint the exterior of your home you have two options. You can repaint your home the same color that it already is. Just give your home a refreshed look. Or you can change up the look and change the color of the paint. Just remember you are trying to sell your home and don’t go overboard on extreme colors. Keep it neutral colors that are more inviting. If you are switching up your color remember you are painting your house in natural light. Natural light can make colors look a cooler shade. You have two options for this. You can either choose a warmer shade color or you can test paint a small portion of the exterior of your home and see what you think. If you are changing the color of your home you are painting over the color and that can have a factor in the paint color.
Paint Fences to Look Great Again
A smart thing that you can also do is re-paint your fence. Your fence can be a huge factor in the look of your home. If you have a rundown fence it does not look very nice. But if you have a freshly new painted fence it can make your home stand out and look better.
