Lockmar Estate Sellers Do you need to paint?

Why is painting your Lockmar Estate house in order to sell so important? How about a major return on investment! According to HomeGain's:  The average price to paint interior walls is $500 to $750, but you will increase a home price by an average of $1,500 to $2,000 -- which can be a 250% return on investment.

You must change:                                       

A bright red accent wall, or your teenager's black-walled bedroom, needs to be painted

 over in order to sell. "Beiges, warm beiges and yellows are great choices for wall color

and making a space look more impersonal, "Wallpaper is a deal-breaker, this dates

 your home. When trying to sell an older home you want it to feel modern and updated.

 Neutralize the color palette throughout the home and neutral doesn't mean white."


The Color to Avoid

Surprisingly, white is the color to avoid “The biggest mistake people make is painting their house entirely white inside thinking it's a neutral color. It's not, it's a bright color.

Ways to find great paint colors

Model Homes are an excellent way to find the latest and greatest colors that are being used by builders. They all use decorators to choose just the right colors for their homes.   

As a seller always do your homework before listing your home with a Real Estate Agent: Pick one that lives in your area. They have been in many of the homes in your neighborhood at one time or another. They can give you honest advise on painting and small improvement to make your home more marketable.

Hi Cynthia-

Great advice on avoiding both white and flashy individual colors.  Sometimes, the builders use an accent color that doesn't translate into neutral: sage green, lilacs and grayed blues are examples. 

If your agent tells you to paint; PAINT! - and be sure to ask what color!
