Painting

Painting is one of the most cost effective, easiest ways for you to update and enhance the look of your home before you list it.  The nice part is you don’t need to be a professional painter to achieve this goal.  Viewing some free online videos are very helpful.  Then decide on your colors and go get your paint.....

Most people tend to prefer neutral & light colors, so it's important to keep the design uncomplicated.   There is no need to paint every room, just do the rooms that really need it.    Concentrate on the areas that have dark colors, cracked and or dingy paint.  Today's paints are easier to use and most have a primer inside the paint so usually all you need is one coat.

Removing wallpaper will update your home and buyers will not have to deal with it and allows your home to sell for more money.   Buyers tend to have a difficult time dealing with wallpaper.  Even if a seller offers an allowance to have the wallpaper removed it defeats the purpose, thus putting less money in the seller's pocket.  Removing the wallpaper and freshly painting the room creates a great first impression to potential buyers making it more pleasing.                    

I was having this conversation with a client in Barnegat, NJ the other day.  I really needed to tell them how important it was to make the best impression to a buyer on their visit to their home.   Put yourself in the buyer's shoes and imagine walking into a house that needs to be painted and have wall paper removed, not a good thought..................
