EXTERIOR

Curb appeal and first impressions of the property are just as important as the interior of the house to your buyer. You must ensure the home looks to be in good shape and painting can be an inexpensive way of accomplishing that goal.

Key Areas to Focus On:

  • Front Entry Areas
  • Porch and around Walkways
  • Window Ledges
  • Doors
  • Garage Overhead Doors
  • Areas that show peeling Paint

INTERIOR

While the first impression of your property’s exterior is extremely important, first impressions upon entering the house is just as important. The foyer sets the tone for the house and often shows and highlights the best features from this vantage point.

Key Areas to Focus On:

  • Bathrooms
  • Kitchens
  • Water Stains and Mould
  • Cracks
  • Peeling Paint
  • Dirty Surfaces

BENEFITS OF PAINTING BEFORE SELLING

  • Shows the house is well maintained
  • Provides a fresh and clean appearance
  • Can highlight features of the house
  • Less work for the buyer when they move-in
  • Updates the colours to be more modern and more appealing to buyers
  • Buyers are not as likely to look for flaws elsewhere if the walls, trim, doors etc., are freshly painted and appear in tip-top condition.
