Hire a Professional Painter to Add Value to Your Home
We’ve been in business for 15 years. You can probably imagine that we’ve painted a lot of houses for a lot of different reasons. We’ve painted interior walls, exteriors, and more, and the reason can be anything from an outdated color to a seller looking to attract more buyers.
But whether you’re selling your home or not, a professional paint job is one kind of investment that you can be confident in making. Buyers love homes that have been professionally painted, and it is well known that a simple investment in painting has the ability to pay dividends when you do put your home on the market.
On the flip side, outdated walls, chipping paint, and sloppy work makes buyers turn the other way. Buyers perceive homes with these kinds of paint jobs as less appealing and, ultimately, less valuable.
This is a sad situation. If you were selling your home, would you want to be stopped by something as simple as the paint on your walls?
The housing market in Minnesota might be hot right now, but that doesn’t mean that selling your house is a given. And even if it was, wouldn’t you want to ensure that your house was perceived as a high-value purchase? If so, then we’d highly recommend reading these three tips to maximizing home value with paint.
1. Choose Neutral Colors
It may be that you prefer a bold, vibrant yellow to a soft off-white. You might love bright red or even black and white stripes. However, the key to increasing your home’s value in the eyes of potential buyers is to appeal to as many of them as possible.
Instead of vibrant colors that might appeal to just a few buyers, try using inoffensive neutrals. Colors like these can make your home look clean and put together without driving away even a single buyer.
2. Hire a Professional
We are professionals, so you’re probably not surprised that we included this point. But hear us out. There’s nothing that puts an investment in paint to waste quicker than shoddy workmanship.
When we approach a new project, we are meticulous. We take the extra time to ensure that you’ll be glad that you chose to have your walls or home professionally painted instead of doing it on your own. Besides, wouldn’t you rather be playing golf or heading to the mall?
3. Consider Painting Your Cabinets Or Exterior
The most straightforward investment you can make is into your interior walls. Most of us understand the concept of this kind of painting project and have had it done it on a regular basis.
But did you know that your cabinets are perceived as one of the most important assets in your home? When most people hear this, they figure that they will have to invest $20,000 to replace and refresh. However, most cabinets just need a little paint or stain! Consider making this much more affordable investment and see how much more interest you get in your updated kitchen.
Here’s another important point—if buyers don’t like how your home looks on the outside, they may never even get as far as coming inside! Why not refresh your home’s exterior? There’s great value in making an ugly home beautiful again.
