Best Painting Inc. can help to repair all your drywall, texture and Stucco
1. Paint is one of the cheapest, easiest ways to update the look of your home before you list it. Lighter and neutral colors are preferred when selling because they tend to appeal to most people. You never know who will walk through the door to view the house, so it makes sense to keep the styling primary. You don’t have to paint every room, necessarily, just those that obviously need it. Rooms with dark paint, chipped or dirty paint are the ones that will benefit most. If you have wallpaper in your home, it is almost always a good idea to remove it to sell your home for the most money. Wallpaper dates a home.
Buyers have a hard time selling past wallpaper. Some sellers assume a buyer should just be able to “look past it.” This is a mistake as it defeats the purpose. Getting rid of wallpaper is all about first impressions and making a home more appealing to a buyer. Removing the wallpaper is what puts more money in a sellers pocket.
It is imperative for a Homeowner to understand how important the initial visit is to a home and the impression it makes on a buyer.
2. Exterior-The exterior is the first thing buyers will see, so you want it to look good.
A fresh coat of Paint helps the Outside of your home look fresh and new.
Clean up any junk that may have accumulated in the yard or on the outside of any storage sheds.Make sure the grass is mowed and that weeds are taken care of before someone comes to view the home.
3. Kitchen-Everyone wants a large, spacious kitchen with all new appliances – where they can cook and entertain (even if they never do either). Now your kitchen may not satisfy these desires without significant upgrades, which may not make sense financially.
Do not do a complete kitchen renovation unless your agent tells you that he or she believes you can make your money back on the sale.
However, you can make some minor repairs that will make your kitchen appear more inviting, even if it isn’t a “dream kitchen”.
If the painting, lighting, and countertops all scream the 1970s, you can change all of these without too large of an investment.
You can paint as necessary, install new fixtures and replace the countertops to something more appealing (granite and marble are not a requirement for an updated look).
The price of solid surface materials, however, has come down in recent years so it might be worth getting an estimate for installing granite countertops, especially when the kitchen counter space is not huge.
As far as appliances go, buyers are going to expect these to work. If the oven, dishwasher or range are out of operation – or in awful shape – replacing them might be necessary to appeal to buyers.
4. Bathroom-A clean bathroom – one where everything works as it should – is a necessity. If you have a problem with a running toilet or a leaky faucet, make repairs as necessary. You can cause the toilet look much better just by replacing the seat.
Cleaning up the grout or replacing it is always a good idea, as it can become dirty over the years. Any missing tiles should also be replaced.
If the bathroom has old wallpaper or dingy surfaces, a new paint job is recommended. The brighter and cleaner you can make the room, the better.
The bathrooms and kitchen are the most important areas in a home. These are areas where buyers will put their focus. They are also the most expensive areas in a home to upgrade.
This makes it vital for you to repair any issues before putting your home up for sale.
