Should I Paint My Home Before Selling It?

Should I Paint My Home Before Selling It?

When it comes time to sell your home, you will want to make your property look appealing to potential buyers. This will include obvious repairs, such as fixing damaged drywall, replacing cracked windows, and ensuring there are no obvious issues with the property. The main focus will be, how can you increase the value and appeal of your home without spending too much money, because after all the point is to sell. You may wonder if taking the time and resources to paint your home is a worthwhile investment, one that you will see a good return on, in order to quickly sell your home for top dollar. While painting may seem like it is too large of an investment, in actuality, painting your home before you sell it can be an inexpensive way to quickly enhance the appearance of your space and help you to increase your resale value. Nothing is more draining for sellers than having their home sit on the market for an extended period of time while they wait for it to sell, making interior and exterior painting an excellent option for those looking to sell their home quickly.

We are a full-service painting company, meaning we repair and replace drywall, remove wallpaper and wall textures, repair exterior wall damage, and even can help with roof repairs and kitchen cabinet refinishing. Our skilled craftsmen work together in order to complete your home renovation project quickly and efficiently. Our prices are competitive without compromising quality because we don’t believe a project is complete until you are completely satisfied!


Home Interior Painting in Houston: One of the easiest ways to make a potential buyer feel at home in your space is by making them feel like the property is move-in ready. Whenever a buyer sees a messy paint job, damaged drywall, or has reason to believe the roof is damaged, they are not going to want to purchase your home. These small issues can quickly be addressed by the professionals at Houston Residential Painters to make potential buyers feel comfortable in your space. Your goal should be to convey the message that you have taken care of your home and that they will not have to worry about a long list of repairs that need to be addressed as soon as they move in. 


You will want to choose colors that appeal to a wide range of buyers, meaning that if your space has been customized to fit your specific taste, choosing more neutral colors can help to broaden your audience and get you a look that appeals to as many people as possible. Ditch the reds and wallpaper, and go with greys, whites, and other neutral tones. Having a professional interior paint job before selling is worth the cost. Depending on the paint quality and your local real estate market, you can expect a 50% to 500% return on your investment. Fresh paint has the potential to truly dazzle potential buyers if your house has a professional finish with sharp cut lines along ceilings and trim.


House Exterior Painting in Houston: Making a good first impression on potential buyers before they even exit their vehicles sets the right tone for successfully selling your home! If you see a faded exterior that looks worn down and old when you stand outside your home, working with the team at Houston Residential Painters can help you! Fresh paint goes a long way to enhancing the appearance of your home and making buyers feel welcomed into your space. You won’t get a second chance at first impression so make sure you make a strong one with the help of our team!
