Interesting Tips for Painting Your House before a Sale in market

JonWritten by:

You may not think that paint is an important element in regards to a sale of a house, but in fact it is. Look at it this way, the paint you have on your walls sets the mood for potential buyers as they walk through the door. You don’t want them walking in to see vivid colors; although they might match your personality and your furniture it is always good to go with something neutral prior to listing the house for sale. The painting of the Pasir Ris Central showflat can be done under the supervision of professionals. The paint of the flat can be done through the owner himself with different colors.

Home Owners

If you are the home owner you already know there is a lot of inventory out there and selling a house isn’t easy. So why limit yourself to something as simple as paint color when listing your house for sale. There are a bunch of colors that you can pick while staying in the neutrals. Also make sure that you don’t go too light where it just blends in with the floor boards and/or molding. If you are selling your house through a realtor, it will also be advantageous to consult them on the paint color. Usually they will suggest this to you while doing the walk through of your house prior to listing it. If you feel that the paint you have on your walls is good enough for the sale and contrasts with the furniture you have, it would be a good idea to leave the furniture in while the house is on the market. Another advantage to this is that potential buyers can envision how the space would look with furniture. Again, consult your realtor while making these decisions.

Investors

Investors are also seeing a lot of inventory on the market. If you are buying and flipping a residential investment property it is in your best interest also to paint the complete house a neutral color. I have had experience in this matter, as I have stayed in beige tones when I selected the paint for my investment properties. Sometimes I like to brighten it up and move towards the very slight shades of yellow. This makes the room feel larger. If you are staging your house for sale, a good way to spice things up is to add a different color contrasting the neutral on one wall to make it pop out. Then add the furniture that contrasts both the colors and never forget to add pops of color throughout your spaces. It is also a good idea to paint the outside of the house especially if you are flipping; it gives the house a newer cleaner look. Again don’t make the mistake of painting the entire outside of the house one color. Most likely you will be painting the house a lighter color, contrast it with a darker one maybe on the window sills, or add dark colored shutters to the windows. A good way to see what colors will look good on your property is to take a drive around the neighborhood and take pictures of the colors you like, then visualize it on your property. Also, if you are working with a realtor, don’t be afraid to ask for their advice if you feel like you are lost in the color swatches.
