House Painting With an Eye for Resale

If you are looking to sell your house but you want to spruce it up first with a repaint, then there are a few things you need to know about prepping your house. You will want to attract as many buyers as possible, so you can’t just treat this like any repaint of the house. You have to take specific action and have specific goals in mind. Remember, if you are painting your house to sell it, then you are not painting it for yourself. You are painting it for the people who will be interested in it.

Start by focusing on the first door. This is where you want to draw attention, so you need the door to stick out. That doesn’t necessarily mean that you need it paint it a garish color, but it should look different from the rest of the house and inviting. You need to draw some focus there from the people who are driving by your house on the street. Try to make it stand out but still work with the rest of the colors for the house.

Next, you should be paying attention to details as you paint. You want to ensure that the painting is done properly, and you may even want to hire professionals to do it for you. The exterior is important, but the interior is even more important.

That’s where people will be spending their most time looking at your walls and ceilings. Make sure they have a beautiful paint job to admire and ensure that you paint carefully around any fixtures to give the house a neat, clean look.

One of the best tips we can give you is to repaint entire walls instead of doing spot painting. You may only have a few marks on one wall that you want to cover up, but your spotted repainting may not look very good over the old paint. It’s always better to just paint the whole wall than to do a bit here and bit there.

You also want to to make sure you are using high quality paint. You don’t know how long it will take to sell your house, and you want the paint to hold up and to look good during the entire selling process. Be sure to use primer and two layers of paint to give your walls the best possible look. You may even want to consult with an expert painter and decorator. on what kind of paint to use, how many layers you need and
what the best method of painting would be. All this will take work, but it will be worth it when you sell your house.

You might even decide that after you are done you love the new look of your home so much that you want to stay. If you were planning to move out just for a change of scenery, repainting your home could provide that for you and could provide reason enough for you to stay. If not, at least you have something appealing and attractive for potential buyers.
