Fast House Buyers Chesapeake VA: Where there are water stains leftover from an old plumbing or roof leak you can cover it nicely with a coat of paint. Be sure the leak is fixed first, of course. But if there is no longer a leaky spot in the ceiling there’s no reason a buyer should come in and see water stains.
Walls should be scrubbed down especially around the door jambs and windowsills. If it seems that it would be easier to paint, then go ahead and buy a neutral color that will take care of all the stains and imperfections on the walls. Use the contrasting color on the window sills and doorframes. White usually goes well with everything, especially neutral colors.
The exterior will look fantastic if you can paint it. Even if the paint currently on the house is only a few years old, you can still get a fresh look by painting, especially if weather has faded the color or it’s dirty. If it’s too big of a job and the exterior is decent looking, buy a gallon of trim paint and paint the front door, the trim around the windows, and wherever an accent would be appropriate. The house will have a general well cared for appearance.
Where the old paint has peeled or is bubbling and uneven, you’ll need to scrape it off to get a smooth surface from which to work. New paint will not sit well over old paint that has lifted off of the surface. Sandblasting is the best way to clean off any loose paint or dirt, but can be expensive. Scraping requires only a blade and elbow grease.
Most homeowners can paint their own homes, which makes painting a good option for the most dramatic effect and the least expense. Remember to pick colors that would be acceptable to the most buyers. Architect’s and designer colors are stylish and expensive and do not net the best results. A nice neutral tan, gray, beige, sand, or white color is good for the exterior, while mostly off-white or light colors are preferable for the interior as your rooms will look larger and brighter.
