If you are considering selling your house now, or even a few years from now, the number one update any real estate agent will advise you to do is paint.
If you have wallpaper, they always recommend removing it and painting. When interested parties enter your home they don't want to see a project. They love looking at bright, clean walls and ceilings. The difference in a room that is papered in an outdated wallpaper to a fresh, new modern color is amazing!
When you live in your home and you see the same dirty wallpaper or paint every day, you don't look at it from someone else's perspective. Usually when we work with real estate agents they recommend a very neutral color for every room. Then the buyers can decorate with accessories, or bring in their own taste in color later on after they are settled in their new home. Move in ready is easier for everyone.
Linen white is a popular shade for walls, which is a creamy off white. Light grays are also in style. These colors goes with everything. You may want to start one room at a time now to begin preparing your home for a quicker sale, instead of waiting until you need to do them all at once. Then YOU can enjoy them also, not just the new buyers. A paint job freshens the space and your life! Call us for a free estimate today!
