Spring has finally sprung and this is the perfect time to put your house on the market! There is no doubt that these next few months are selling season! So, the next big task is to make your house stand apart from the rest.
Exterior paint is important. The outside of your house is the first thing people will see when viewing your home. Having pristine exterior paint will instantly let whoever is looking at your house know that it is valuable. Not to mention, a new coat of exterior paint is sure to increase the potential curb value of your home.
We all want the best result for the least expense and a fresh new coat of exterior paint is a cost-efficient way to increase the value of your home by 2-5% (which equals thousands of dollars!!!). Buyers do not want to worry about repairs that need to be made on the house their considering purchasing. One of the most prominent questions a potential buyer will ask is “When the last time this house had an exterior paint job?”. Help increase the value of your home with this simple and cost-effective method. It really will do wonders to the potential value and sale of your home.
When painting the exterior of your house, it is important that you hire a company that does not cut corners. To make your house seem larger paint in lighter shades, to make your house appear smaller (if you have a smaller lot) paint in darker shades. Make sure to give all railings, fences, window frames, shutters, and other accents a fresh coat as well.
If you are looking to attract the maximum of potential buyers, choose a neutral shade for the exterior of your home. These colors will appeal to the greatest number of buyers and add the most potential value to your home. If you decide that painting the entire house is not possible in the amount of time you have, simply give the front door a new paint coat to draw attention to it.
Along with the exterior paint, make home improvements to the outside of your home. Clean up the lawn, plant a tree, have some low maintenance landscaping to highlight your brand-new look. Creating a clean and crisp look to your home will attract buyers, and if you’re not looking to sell your house it will attract a constant positive aroma around your home. People will speak highly of you and your beautiful home.
Painting your home can be a huge undertaking and shouldn’t be a decision made lightly. After all, you don’t want to decide on a color on a whim and end up completely hating it. You’ll need to take into consideration all possible scenarios and create visual balance with the exterior paint color. Make sure to pick your colors on a cloudier day, because if it is too bright outside, the weather can cause a glare that is not normally there.
