2. Paint And/Or Clean The Walls
Fresh Paint Is Great – What Low-Cost Home Improvements Should You Make Before Selling Your Home?
Let’s face it, freshly painted rooms are a natural attraction. A clean and updated exterior too can also be alluring. And guess what? A simple paint job or scrubbing of the walls using proper tools and cleaning agents can bring exact results to your home.
When it comes to painting, it’s important that you choose the right type and pick your colors wisely. Not too long ago, Zillow did analyze well over 32,000 images of sold homes and their finding was that rooms painted in light shades of blue, pale blue or gray, and powder blue sold way above the expected price ($5440 on average).
The same report found out that blue kitchens, light blue bathrooms, brown living rooms (pale taupe, beige, or oatmeal-colored walls), cadet blue bedrooms, slate blue dining rooms, greige home exteriors, and navy blue front doors raised the value of a home by more than $1000. Thus, by opting to go with such colors, you will likely attract a huge number of potential property buyers.
Give the attention and number of visits they attract, bathrooms and kitchen are the top candidates for a full paint job. Don’t forget to select the right shade for each. You can do the painting yourself or hire a pro to do it for a few hundred dollars.
However, if you cannot afford fresh paint or your walls are still in mint condition and only have fingerprints, marks, dings, and the like, washing them can still go a long way in giving them a desirable look.
