Renovations to Make Before Selling Your Home

Ready to put your home on the market? When it comes time to sell your home, whether you’re planning to move now or in the coming years, getting your home ready to sell can be a daunting task. Hiring a painting contractor, interior decorators, or landscapers can take a major weight off your shoulders.

The goal of home renovations should be to make it more livable for yourself and to look move-in ready for potential buyers. Use this guide to help you budget, plan, and prioritize what renovations you need to do to attract buyers and speed up the sale of your home.

Add A Fresh Coat of Paint

Not sure what to update to sell your home easier? Update it all with a simple, fresh coat of paint in a neutral shade! This is a great investment you also get to enjoy for the rest of the time you live in your home. A neutral shade for interior walls is like a blank canvas for the buyer. It allows buyers to easily imagine their belongings without clashing with wall colors.

Hiring an interior painting contractor will get your home painted as quickly and easily as possible. You don’t even have to lift a finger! Spend a few days out of the house and come back to a new home. Popular colors are:

  • Grey
  • Beige
  • Greige
  • White
  • Light blue

What not to do: Avoid trendy colors and wall décor. Trends come and go and if you’re planning on selling your home, the trendy wallpaper or accent wall can quickly go out of style.

Update Your Front Door 

The front of your house is the first thing potential buyers see. Improve your first impression by painting your front door or replacing it with a new one! A brightly colored door will make your home more memorable without affecting the neutral interior for décor. If you’d rather not make another paint color choice, update your door with a sturdy steel or wood door or simply update the screen!

What not to do: Don’t overspend on a front door that doesn’t match the home’s exterior. This will make your exterior clash and possibly drive away potential buyers.

Add to Curb Appeal

Much like the front door, the outside of your home will be important for attracting viewers and closing the deal. Your landscaping is a major part of your first impression for potential buyers. To help keep your yard in a pristine condition, consider trimming trees and shrubs and covering bare spots with flowers. You can also paint the exterior of your home. If old paint gets updated, it’ll make your home look brand new.

What not to do: Don’t add high maintenance assets. Large flower beds require a lot of work and can turn off potential buyers.

Renovating your home before putting it on the market may sound like a big project, but if you plan before, prioritize, and find the best contractors, you’ll have a beautiful home ready to sell in no time. Just look at your home like a prospective buyer would for what changes to make for a greater appeal.

Is Your Project A DIY Project or One For The Professionals?

Some home projects feel like more of a DIY task. And in many cases, painting is one of those projects. After all, it can’t be that hard, can it? With a bucket of paint and a brush in hand, you can easily do it yourself. Plus its cheaper too, right?

What these DIY homeowners don’t realize is that painting is a project that is both technical and time consuming, and in some cases a lot of hard work.Is Painting A DIY Project or One For The Professionals?

There are a number of problems with tackling painting your own home, either inside or out, as a do it yourself project. And at the top of the list is the massive time commitment required to finish the job in a professional way. For most, they try and squeeze it into a weekend project. But this can take several weekends or even months of time, depending on the size of the project. Do you really want to spend every weekend during the summer painting the exterior of your home?

Lack of knowledge is also one of the top things homeowners don’t realize until they are well into the project. For example, you can’t begin painting the outside of your home without a lot of prep work first. Paint over chipped or dirty paint, and your new paint won’t adhere properly to the siding. Or if you paint a water based enamel over a surface previously painted with an oil based enamel, and you’ll quickly see adhesion problems that make your current paint job look anything but professional.

Which leads us to the money aspect of painting. You see the ads in the paper for paint at a reasonable rate. But painting requires a lot more than a bucket of paint and a brush. What about tools for prep work: power-washer, drop clothes, rollers, caulking and tape? Before long you’ll wind up with a huge array of tools and materials attempting to paint your home – and you haven’t even started the work yet. How much is your time worth? Do you really want to spend all of your free time for the next several weeks or months painting?

And there is another problem we see frequently. After investing in paint, tools, materials and more, something happens and the paint job looks anything but professional. You attempt to fix it; which of course makes it look even worse. So you wind up calling in a professional to fix the project and bring it back up to standards. How much is this going to cost?

Instead of trying to save a little money upfront, get the job done right the first time. You’ll be happier with the results and you can enjoy it in a much shorter period of time. And the results will last you many years into the future.

Planning To Sell In The Spring? Start With A Professional Paint Job

You’ve read all the books that tell you the best time to sell your home is in the spring. And with spring just around the corner, you might be planning just such a move.

You probably know that now is the time to start your planning process. Because once you meet with your agent, things will happen quickly. And before you know it you’ll be out of your old home and into a new one.Planning To Sell In The Spring? Start With A Professional Paint Job Now

But before you call in the realtor, it’s time to complete a few long overdue projects first. One of them being a professional paint job. The simple fact is a fresh interior paint job is one of the simplest, most effective ways of livening up your home, and creating the ambiance of everything being brand new.

Sounds like the perfect things for your home? Here are a few tips to help you complete the project in a timely manner.

Why Interior Wall Color Is Important

Start by reducing clutter. A great realtor will share with you an easy secret to selling your home quickly: staging. The purpose of staging is to allow a potential home buyer the opportunity to see themselves in your home, instead of wandering through seeing the current occupants instead. Buy a box or two and take on a different room in your home each day. Pack up anything personal – those family photographs and nicknacks from the beach are a great place to start. They have to be packed up anyway, so this is a great way to get a jumpstart on the process.

Think show home. If you’ve ever gone through model homes to either find a home or to gain new ideas for your own, you know how the professionals approach décor. Modern, clean design, with just a touch of trendiness does the trick every time. Everything should be clean and fresh so a potential buyer will see nothing standing in his or her way of contract and moving in.

The paint. Remember when you moved in that new television … and scraped the side of the wall as you moved in the stand? Those scraps, dings and minor damage add up over time. And that bright purple bedroom your teenage daughter had to have might not be the perfect color for a new owner. Think neutral. Think clean. Think bright and inviting. Then call in your professional painter to perform miracles and liven and freshen up every room in your home. With the perfect color that’s not too white, with just a touch of brightness that makes the new homeowner say “yes”.
