Selling your home is a major decision. It requires time, effort, a relater, packing, and tons of cleaning. One detail that can make a huge difference between your home making a great first impression and coming across as “something we can fix” is a new interior paint job. A fresh coat of paint instantly makes your home feel fresh, clean, and a little newer.
- When people come visit your house, they are trying to picture their lives in your home. Give them a blank canvas to imagine this house as their own with neutral and clean paint job. The less they are distracted by a paint color they don’t love or scuffs and nicks, the more likely they are to fall in love with the house.
- Make your home look bigger with white paint. White reflects light and therefore makes the room seem bigger, lighter, and cleaner.
- Watch out for dingy paint. Sad, dirty walls send the subtle message that the house is dirty, going to take work to make feel new, and make a bad first impression
- Note areas that are frequently touched like cabinets, doors, windowsills, etc. Touch up those areas with fresh paint so that your fingerprints don’t distract people from the beauty of your house
