Painting Your Home Before Selling

Painting Your Home Before Selling

Maximising your home’s selling potential isn’t rocket science. In fact, it’s actually very simple and there are many ways to increase the appeal of your home to potential homebuyers.

From landscaping and purchasing new fixtures for the bathroom to giving the home a fresh coat of paint inside and out, there are many ways to enhance the aesthetics of your home and, therefore, maximise its appeal to homebuyers and increase the asking price. In this article, we look at the benefits of interior and exterior painting when putting a residential property on the market.

Homebuyer Appeal — Make Your Home Stand Out

There are many properties on the market in most major Australian cities, so making your property stand out from the rest is advantageous for all homeowners selling their properties. That isn’t to say that there isn’t interest taken in practically every property that makes its way on to the market at the moment, but to garner attention from multiple homebuyers and enhance the asking price, it’s important to take steps to make your home worthy of the attention of homebuyers.

  • Research colour schemes and decide what colours you’re going to paint your home. You may not need new colour schemes, but it could be exactly what your home needs.
  • Research paint manufacturers and decide on the paints that you’re going to use. Most of the major paint brands in Australia are a great choice, like Wattyl and Deluxe, for example.
  • Find a good local house painter in your area to provide you with advice and carry out the work to the highest industry standards.

A fresh coat of paint can really make your home stand out and attract the attention of possible homebuyers. If you’re holding house inspections and potential homebuyers are going to be visiting your property, a fresh coat of paint will make your home look less lived-in and more of a blank canvas on which new possibilities and opportunities are created.

Enhanced Asking Price — Get More for Your Property

A fresh coat of paint can also enhance the value of your property, making the services that expert local house painters provide an excellent investment in your property. Even if your property has been painted in the past few years, there are probably areas in need of a touch-up, and don’t overlook the fact that homebuyers tend to scrutinise all areas of the properties they inspect.

Great First Impressions — The Case for Exterior Painting Before Selling

Everyone knows the importance of making great first impressions, so having the exterior of your property given a fresh coat of paint, or even a touch-up if there are areas that need attention, will work wonders when putting your property on the market. Increase the curb appeal of your property with professional paintwork provided by a local exterior painting specialist and make your home wow homebuyers the moment they set their sights on it.
