Can fresh paint help sell my Avon Lake home?

Absolutely!  Adding fresh neutral color to your home can turn a dated or even newer home into competition to the model next door.  OK maybe that can be pushing it in some cases.  But you would be surprised how much a difference fresh paint can help.

Lighter more soft colors can make a small hallway or bedroom look even larger.  Choosing colors close to the furniture colors can also make room look roomier. Where as a warm darker color can bring out strong features of a home.  

If you are going to add color in rooms look at what are trends in colors in your area.  Some homes are getting more deeper greens and blues for example in living spaces.  

There are programs like that from Sherwin Williams called Color Visualizer where you can test their colors out on picture of your own room or existing sample rooms they have . 

Finally I suggest if you are not a good painter, hire a professional.  Your back and arms will thank you, your wife will thank you for no mess ups and you will have time to work on other need areas of the home to help it sell better (I will cover that in latter chapters too).

Struggling to search for Avon Lake, Avon, North Ridgeville, Sheffield Lake and Sheffield Village Homes?  Need some easier way to do it on the go?  Trulia 
and Zillow are great programs however they are not local.  They are not current to activity at the minute and projections on values of homes are questionable based on global measures and not having local information as a local Realtor would.  So what to do? Add my search engine to your mobile devise or  computer and get direct and current home sales, open houses, know when a home is off the market and sold right away and find similar homes in the area.  The search engine has GPS function that you can activate on your phone  and with that it will give you comparables while you are in the driveway of that dream home.  Now how cool is that?  

Try it.   http://stanleystepak.hanna2go.com

Stan - Spring is the perfect time to spruce up the look of homes. A drop of color here and there does wonders to the soul.

And it doesn't hurt to cover over those FAVORITE colors of the kids.  Green slime colored walls in the boys room doesn't appeal to everyone.  ;)

Hi Stan.  Good points!  Sometimes boldly painted walls need to be neutralized to a less dramatic tone.  Try to appeal to the masses.
