How Fresh Paint Can Increase Your Property’s Value

If you are planning to sell your home then getting the best price is likely at the forefront of your mind. 

A professionally completed fresh paint job can add up to 5% to your property’s sale value, which may not seem like a lot, but depending on your selling price it can make a massive difference. 

Let’s take a look at a few of the reasons why a fresh coat of paint can make this much difference. 

Curb Appeal

A fresh exterior paint job can make a house look fresher, which inturn can give it more appeal to potential buyers when they’re driving or walking by the property. 

The exterior of your home is the first thing people see before walking through the front door. This makes it one of the most important places to pay attention to when you start to think about selling your house.

Giving your property great curb appeal will help catch potential buyers attention for all the right reasons to ensure they want to go inside and inspect the house further. Each step forward is a step closer to signing those sale papers.

Interior Design

Toning down bright and vibrantly coloured walls before selling your house can help make it appeal to a wider range of buyers.  

Many new homeowners will likely want to do their own interior designing and add their own colour scheme. 

Using more earthy and neutral colours can help make a property more universally appealing to potential buyers. These tones are not only easier to paint over, but also using crisp shades of white can make your house look cleaner and newer. 

House Condition

Having your home freshly painted, ensures there are no visible cracks in the paint, and offers potential buyers more confidence to buy.

Contracting professionals to paint your home means they will be able to inspect your house and spot any damage that may be evident in your paint work. 

This will increase your home’s value as you will be able to ask a higher price for a house that is in good condition.

Return on Investment

Investing in interior and exterior painting before selling your home may seem illogical; why would you waste money improving your house when you are leaving?

It isn’t as strange as it sounds though. Having your home freshly painted before listing will increase its value and the amount that you will be able to ask for it. 

Buyers are more likely to offer a lower price if they can see that there’s obvious work that needs to be completed before they move in and make it their home. Therefore, ensuring your property looks great and is move in ready, will give you the potential to ask for a higher price.
