How to Boost Your Home Sale in the Housing Market Dip?

As many homeowners are noticing, the housing market is not at its best right now, which can be frustrating for those trying to sell their home. While many factors contributing to the recent dip in real estate activity are outside of individual homeowners’ control, there are several factors you can control and steps you can take to draw maximum attention on the real estate market, ensuring that your home will sell fast. The easiest and most effective step you can take is to update the appearance of the interior and exterior of your home with a fresh, beautiful paint job. At My Painter, we can help you make the best decisions on products, colors and finishes to perfect the appearance of your home, inside and out, which will help you attract the best offers from the most serious buyers.

Interior Painting

When it comes to house hunters, most buyers are seeking a move-in-ready home that does not require the time and expense of additional large scale projects. So, if your home hasn’t been painted in a while, or if it boasts outdated and eccentric color schemes, you will likely have trouble attracting potential buyers. The last thing buyers want is to have to take on the cost of repainting on top of the already expensive endeavor of purchasing a new home. It is therefore important for the seller to be proactive by repainting before you even begin staging, listing and showing your home.

Exterior Painting

There it is… that sign in your front yard announcing, “For Sale.” Upon seeing that sign, potential buyers then look up and see the façade of your home. In that very moment, they have just decided whether they’d even consider this house as a contender for their future new home. The truth of the matter is that most buyers make this initial, split-second decision based on nothing more than the home’s curb appeal. Will the beautiful outward appearance of your home—with its tasteful color scheme and crisp, clean trim lines—pique the interest of potential buyers scouting the local real estate market? Or will faded, flaking paint and rotting trim turn them away, as your house becomes nothing more than another forgotten listing? In order to attract interest up front, painting the exterior of your home is a crucial selling point. Additionally, it raises the value of your home, which will draw more competitive offers. Now is the time to repaint your home’s exterior, before the winter weather is upon us!
