Should I Touch Up House Paint Before Selling My Home in Montauk, NY?

It is no secret that when you want to sell a home one of the best ways to renew the look of your home is to repaint it. There is a number of ways that you can paint your home that increases its attraction and improves the sale of the home. L.W. Winslow Painting, Inc. will share which touch-up paint job is worth doing when you want to sell your home.

Repaint the Exterior

There is one phrase real estate agents will always use and that is “curb-side appeal.” By improving the look of your home’s exterior, potential buyers will want to explore the inside of your home. Painting the exterior greatly improves the sale of a home and is a worth while investment.

Entryway Paint Touchup

Now that you have potential buyers inside your home, you will want them to continue to walk through the rest of the house. You don’t have to completely repaint the entryway if the need doesn’t exist. However, any or all touch-ups should be done to help make the entryway look clean and more welcoming.

Painting Kitchen & Bathrooms

The kitchen and bathroom is one of the most used rooms in a home, followed by bedrooms and living rooms. It is recommended you repaint these two rooms to give it a fresh new look. Don’t be afraid to use color either. There was a time that real estate agents would tell you to paint the house white for a more open and clean look. However, that is no longer the case. Homes with color make the home feel more alive, and make it easier for a potential buyer to imagine themselves living in it. When it comes to small kitchens, its okay to use color, but make sure to use lighter colors that work well with the appliances and other colors in the kitchen. The kitchen is the heart of most homes. You will want to make sure you put the most effort in the kitchen area.

Trim Work Repainting

Trim around doors, windows, and floor boards are another important detail in a home. If the trim work looks battered, chipped, or old, you will want to give it a little makeover. You may want to sand all the wood trim found in your home and repaint or stain it.

Cabinet Painting or Refinishing

Cabinets can be found in kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms and often they get overlooked. Most buyers look at cabinets and especially those in the kitchen. If they look worn down or dirty, they can become a major turn off for a buyer. Make sure to take the time to access your home cabinets and if they need to be repainted or refinished, consider that another priority.

 Repainting Ceilings

Ceilings surprisingly withstand a lot of damage or stains in a home. If your roof has had a leak, or you’ve had plumbing problems, the resulting water stains can look awful. Sometimes food or drink stains magically appear on the ceiling and that ruins the look or your home. The color scheme in each room may dictate whether or not you keep the ceiling white or use color to help make the room more interesting.
