If you are planning to sell your home before the year ends, house painting might be a good idea. When a potential buyer perceives a well maintained property, the chances of them making the purchase is greater. So, where does a paint job fit into all of this? There is no simpler way to add appeal to an estate and value through house painting.
More specifically, there are certain areas of your home that will impress potential buyers when trying to sell your home so you have to make sure those areas in particular are painted. The areas you need to paint are:
- The front door- Since the front door is the first encounter that the buyer has with the estate, make sure it is a pleasant one. A beautifully painted front door can help make a great first impression.
- The entrance hall- make sure that the areas where visitors catch the first glimpses of the estate are well painted. Touch up every surface and clean the walls if necessary to remove showing of any nicks, stains, or marks.
- The Kitchen- The kitchen is the heart of the home, and one of the greatest selling points in an estate. Put extra effort into making the kitchen look outstanding through a quality paint job.
- The bathroom- pay close attention to this area of your property, as it usually receives much scrutiny. Make sure the paint job is impeccable. Make it look bigger by choosing light colors for the paint job.
- Wood work- wood work includes your cabinet doors. Make sure all floor molding, rails, and so forth all well painted and not chipped. A beautiful finish on these wood areas of an estate will pay off.
- Windowsills- it is very common and likely for potential buyers to look out the window once or twice, don’t surprise them with a bad sight. Make sure that when they gaze out, that windowsill is clean, sanded, and painted.
