“Most of us form an opinion about someone or something within the first 15 seconds of acquaintance, and this will hold true for your home. This first impression lasts; for better or worse, it takes a lot to convince people their initial impression was wrong. You never want to create the impression that a residential structure will require a lot of work, but a poor paint job will do just that. An exterior with a quality coat of paint, in a color that blends with the neighborhood, will instantly add value to your home.” – Green Residential – How Important Is Paint When Selling a Home?
Additional Seller’s Advantage after Painting a Home In Preparation for Selling
One additional plus, though it’s perhaps a minor advantage of painting your home before you sell, is that it not only masks and encapsulate old smells, your home simple is better! Musty smells from unwanted moisture in a wall’s surface are properly treated. So, the end result is less about “hiding” something and more about truly taking care of the home. You want to hand the keys over with pride that you’ve properly taken care of possible issues.
Something to consider: Increasing the value of your home for a better resale isn’t the only reason to consider repainting. Perhaps you will change your mind, or you have no plans to sell; in which case an upgrade like fresh paint can give a bright new look to your living space. Because it’s your home, that’s priceless.
