Exterior Painting and Other Small Home Improvements to Help Sell Your Home Faster

Selling a home can be a stressful and tedious process. From exterior painting to budget-friendly kitchen renovations, there are dozens of little projects you can tackle in order to make the selling process go more smoothly.

Replacing Hardware

This is one of the most inexpensive and efficient ways to update the interior of your home.

Nothing exposes the age of your home more than outdated or old hardware. Doorknobs, cabinet handles, and light fixtures are simple and affordable components that will bring updated style to your home.

Be sure to focus these improvements in the kitchen whenever possible. An updated kitchen is one of the biggest draws to potential homebuyers as it is often seen as the “heart” of the house.

Exterior Painting

Curb appeal is a major component in selling a home. Any homebuyer who has shopped the real estate market knows that sprucing up the exterior of a home is a major key to selling quickly.

Hiring professional exterior house painters can take your home from drab to fab and increase the selling price dramatically. When painting your home’s exterior, make sure to keep up to date with trends and neighborhood characteristics. If you choose to stick with soft neutral colors, make sure you incorporate some color in the finishing details or with landscaping choices.

Fix Your Flooring

Flooring makes a huge difference in a home.

Replacing your flooring altogether may be a more expensive renovation. But replacing or improving the floors in some of the main rooms in your house is a great way to cut costs. Chances are, you’ll also increase the chances of a quick sale.

Many buyers place an emphasis on a home being ‘move in ready.’ This means that if your flooring is outdated, damaged, or poorly maintained, it may be a deterrent for buyers looking for their perfect home.

Consider a fresh coat of paint on the floors or deep carpet cleaning to increase the interior appeal of your home.

Upgrade Your Home the Right Way

Ultimately, you are the best judge of the renovations you should prioritize for your home. Budget, neighborhood markets, and nearby properties are all variables to consider when preparing your home for a sale.

4 Things to do to Prepare Your Interior for Denver Painters

Paint contractors understand that, ideally, your Denver painters should be in and out of your home as quickly as possible when it comes to interior paint jobs.

Painting companies want to ensure we’re doing the best work possible and get you back to a normal space as seamlessly as possible. For that process to move quickly, there are a few things homeowners can do to assist with making interior paint jobs efficiently.

Moving Furniture

Interior paint jobs are a bit more tedious than exterior jobs. Moving heirlooms or delicate furniture away from walls or doorframes ensures safety for those items. If you need assistance to move these items, please notify the Paint Denver Team Leader and we’ll take extra care to keep these pieces of furniture safe. For regular pieces of furniture, we will cover and protect the furniture and floors.

To assist with efficient prep work, removing small, fragile, and expensive objects from the rooms that are to be painted would help our team immensely. Any china should especially be emptied from china cabinets and moved away from work areas. Emptying bookcases and removing paintings, pictures, posters, and manageable mirrors from the walls would also speed up the prep work.

Wall Plate Removal

It’s an easy thing to forget. These little plastic fixtures are all removed, put away, then replaced by our crews before and after a job. We want to be sure there aren’t any bare spots where the paint doesn’t cover.

Remove these, along with any vent and return covers and shorten the painting process by a few minutes!

Floor Coverings

We’ll provide these for any job, but if you have sheets and other unused, old fabrics you want to use for protection, set them out!

Our Denver painters always come prepared, but these extra tools may help keep the space protected from accidental spills or splatter.

Prepping the Details

There are a dozen little things our team does to prep a space for interior paint. We clean all surfaces including walls, ceiling, and trim. It’s not always obvious, but these surfaces collect dust, pet hair, and sawdust overtime and could interfere with the quality of the paint job.

We also cover any imperfections in the surfaces with drywall patching. This ensures smooth, perfect paint application.

Most painting companies, like Paint Denver, are happy to do this ourselves. But doing them ahead of time may speed up your home improvement timeline.

Stress Free Interior Painting

Of course, you could just kick up your feet, relax, and let Pain Denver’s team of professional painters take the lead.

We’re happy to prep and paint your interior and keep the home improvement process as stress-free as possible. If you have a painting project in mind, we invite you to schedule your free estimate!

Home Painting After the Holidays

The holidays are over, and you can finally relax! But what’s this post-holiday glum you’re feeling? Without the seasonal décor, your home is starting to feel a little drab. One thing that you may not have considered is hiring a professional painter to liven up your home with some interior home painting.

Revitalize Your Home

If your walls have been the same color for years, you may not have realized just how dull your walls and home have become once the holiday decorations are down. By consulting a paint contractor, like Paint Denver, you can get some ideas, feedback, and advice on which colors in each room of your home will look best.

Focus on the Details

While thinking about interior home painting, most people consider the walls and either ignore the trim or choose a neutral color to fade into the background. However, a statement can be made by making your baseboards, door frames, doors, banisters and other items pop. Space can be updated by changing the trim color to give it the correct “frame” when cleaning up any scuffs or imperfections.

Lift Your Mood

Post-holiday stress is very real. Especially when you’re looking over your budget and your family and friends are back in their homes. You may be pleasantly surprised to find that colors can affect your mood significantly. Colors such as pink and rose can have a calming effect and promote pleasant conversation. Green can be uplifting, while blue can create a sense of tranquility. If you’re looking for a natural way to enhance your mood, these are great colors for interior home painting.

If you are long overdue for an interior home painting, you should consider getting in touch with a paint contractor to help revive your walls. This will make your entire home look more colorful and even relieve some stress! Contact Paint Denver today at 303-800-7575 for a free estimate. With Paint Denver, you get a quality experience that is unique within the painting business, every time.

Case Study: Painting in Platte Park

Platte Park Case Study: Before

In collaboration with the Guy Team of Remax of Cherry Creek, Paint Denver was enlisted to help sell a property in the Platte Park neighborhood of Denver. The Guy Team took over the listing from a previous agent, who had listed the property at $498,000.

After 93 days on the market, there had been no sale.

The team took over the listing property and immediately called Paint Denver to freshen up the interior as well as hire a professional to stage the property. The Guy Team dropped the list price to $485,000.

Within 13 days of the painting, staging, and price drop the property was under contract.

Platte Park Case Study: After

Just a few months prior, a similar unit (300 square feet less) across the hall had been sold. This property had not been painted or staged and sold for $405,000.

This is just one example of the difference a fresh coat of interior paint can make on a home’s selling price. For a relatively small investment up front, the return in the form of a higher selling price is well worth it.
