Why Painting Your Home Before Selling is a Good Investment

If you’re thinking about listing your home on the market, you are likely exploring a number of home improvement options to help you get the best price for your home and help it stand out from the crowd. One of the most common questions homeowners ask before selling their home is

Should I Paint my home before selling?


Real Estate experts agree that a fresh coat of paint can work wonders on your home’s ability to appeal to the market. A complete repaint of the entire home isn’t always necessary, but a strategic painting project to update the spaces that need it most is always a smart investment.

Where should you focus your painting efforts?

Here’s a list of some of the top areas to consider painting before listing your home on the market:

Exterior – Give your home’s exterior an inspection to ensure that the paint is healthy and attractive to help increase its overall curb appeal to potential buyers. If your home’s exterior isn’t up to par, consider hiring a professional to help you determine whether you need some touch-ups or a full exterior repaint.

Kitchen & Bathrooms – These are two of the most important spaces in your home and can make or break your home’s selling ability. When they’re up to par, they are a huge selling point for potential buyers. When they’re below par, they can cause a potential buyer to immediately walk away. It is best to give these two areas some serious attention when it comes time to put your home on the market.

Kitchen Cabinets – Painting your kitchen cabinets is a fast, cost-effective way to add immediate value to your home. By refreshing your kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities and any built-in shelving, you immediately appeal to potential buyers coming to view your home.

Pressure Washing – While not necessarily painting, taking a pressure washer to your home’s vinyl siding, walkways, and patio will leave it looking in much better shape than it may be, and is a highly appealing factor to potential buyers.

If you’re considering moving and listing your home on the market, you likely have a lot on your plate. Hiring a professional painting company to help you take one thing (or many things) off your to-do list provides you with peace of mind, and a finished product that will add incredible value to your home as well as increasing it’s selling potential.
