Here are the best tricks to selling your house.
Are you looking for a change of scenery this year? Downsizing? Scaling up? Two-story to a one-story? No matter the reason, you now have both an exciting future to look forward to…and the dreaded task of selling your current home. It can be a stressful process, but we here at 360° Painting can offer a few tips on how to sell your home as quickly as possible.
The trick is to start preparing now. The real estate market is in full upswing in March and April, but people begin to look at the end of January. Prepare to try selling your house in the winter. Create an action plan so that your home can hit the market at the height of buyer activity, and can be sold in a flash.
1. Start with the deck.
Decks can be a great selling point for your home, but only if they look the part. A well-staged deck invites potential buyers to imagine their own summertime-evening BBQs, sipping on a cool drink on your beautiful deck. A poorly-staged deck only brings nightmares of power washing and staining. Make sure to stain the deck so that it looks brand-new and ready for the evening BBQ. Fortunately, 360° Painting can do that for you.
2. Don’t neglect the front door and shutters.
Everyone knows that first impressions are important when meeting new people. But don’t forget that this also applies to houses. Make sure your house and its potential new owners get off on the right foot by freshening up the shutters and front door. A new coat of paint goes a long way to making the entire exterior feel new.
3. Say ‘no’ the popcorn ceiling.
Popcorn ceilings can make your home feel tired and dated; not to mention that some older popcorn ceilings may have asbestos in them. Update your home and make the whole interior feel clean and simple by removing that popcorn ceiling
4. Buh-bye wallpaper.
If you read along with our blog, you know that we here at 360° Painting think wallpaper can be a very, very good thing. However, selling your home is all about allowing your potential buyers to visualize themselves in the space. Wallpaper makes it harder for them to imagine their own personalities in your home. Consider removing the wallpaper and opting for a neutral instead.
5. As a matter of fact, give the whole house a fresh coat of neutral paint.
Choose a warm neutral, like PPG’s Crisp Candlelight, that both brightens and warms the rooms.
Once you’ve decided on your action plan, give 360 ° Painting a call; we can take care of all these tasks and more, making selling your house quick and painless.
