Painting tips for sellers wanting to increase the value of their property

So you’re looking to sell your home – congratulations. Obviously you want to get the best deal possible and don’t want something you could’ve fixed inexpensively to stand in the way of making a bit of money.

Many people know that a new paint job is the ‘low hanging fruit’ of increasing the value of your property. If you’re considering investing in a paint job to increase the value of your home before you sell it, be sure to keep these tips from Warrior Paints in mind:

Choose a neutral, popular colour

You and your family might love terracotta colours or bright corals, but this isn’t everybody’s cup of tea. If you want to appeal to a broad range of home buyers, then use a neutral, popular colour which most people will like. At the moment, greys, beiges and earthly colours are very popular amongst home buyers.

Hire a reputable contractor

A paint job often seems like something that can be done yourself, until you get down to the nitty-gritty and realise how much preparation, clean-up and hard labour is involved with the task. Hire an experienced painting contractor to make sure the job is done properly the first time around.

Consider the real cost of the project

Many people only take the cost of paint into consideration when they start to consider the paint job at hand, but there’s quite a bit more than goes into a successful paint job. Take note of any holes which need to be re-sealed (or if you’re repainting your roof, any broken roof tiles which need to be replaced), the equipment you need to purchase as well as the cost of labour for a true estimate of the investment.
