3 Reasons to Paint Your Home Before Selling It
If you’ve decided to sell your home, you should consider making some improvements before listing the property. Taking time to spruce up your home with new paint will improve your chances of getting your asking price. House painting is a proven tactic for attracting buyers and increasing the likelihood of getting bids.
Why Paint a House Before Listing It?
1. Feels Cleaner & Brighter
Although some prospective buyers may be willing to spruce up a home’s exterior after purchase, you’ll compromise your chances to attract an offer if you assume so. Buyers aren’t interested in dull-looking homes. House painting requires painters to thoroughly clean a home’s exterior and surfaces before applying fresh coats. When buyers step through a newly painted door in a trendy color, they’ll have smiles on their faces. New paint brightens exteriors that have grown faded and dusky.
2. Improves Curb Appeal
The first impression potential homebuyers have of your property is from the curb. Chipped and faded exterior paint conveys the idea that a home has been neglected. Buyers may wonder what else is wrong. New paint shows them a house has been well cared for. It will also improve the appearance of your home in photos for online listings, which is often the first place buyers see homes for sale.
3. Reduces Stress
Although some homebuyers are explicitly looking for fixer-uppers, most people want to move into a house that requires little upkeep in the first few years of ownership. House painting before listing the property encourages buyers to focus on all the ways they could enjoy the home instead of making mental checklists of all of the repairs and upgrades they’ll have to make.
