With the real estate market at all-time highs, homeowners across the country are thinking about selling. And, with that decision, come a lot of questions. Is now the right time? What is my asking price? Should I paint my house before I list it? While we can’t answer the first two for you, the answer to the last question is a resounding yes.
While painting your home does require an investment on your part, most realtors recommend a fresh coat of paint prior to listing. The reason for this, largely, is because exterior painting provides a huge boost to your home’s value. In fact, painting your home’s exterior is one of the most cost-efficient upgrades that you can perform. But, if you want to get the most out of this investment, you’ll want to consult with a professional.
Certain paint colors, choices, and methods are seen as more desirable. Working with a professional ensures that you select an appealing color, one that will have a positive effect on your sale price. You’ll want to select a popular color, certainly, but also one that melds nicely with neighboring houses. In general, potential buyers want to purchase a finished home, not a project. Because of this, it’s important to address all aspects of your home’s exterior paint job. A good professional will leave nothing unfinished.
