Every Northern Virginia home seller wants to maximize their return of their investment in the home and/or attract the buyer in a short period for their home.

However the 80s wall paper and/or their personality wall paper can be a turn off for many of the home buyers. Especially first time home buyers in Northern Virginia do not know what it will cost them to get the wall paper out. They may be tight on their cash to get the work done later.

 

Did you know you don't have to scrub and remove the wall paper and you can just paint over it?

Here are few great websites with tips on how to tackle wall paper without removing it.

We went on a CMA the other day and all (and I mean ALL) the walls had some kind of rooster wallpaper on it!

My daughter recently bought an older home.   Her master bedroom had THREE layers of different wallpapers in it, probably one layer each decade.   We tried steaming and removing it ourselves.   We finally brought in an expert who removed it but ohhhh, what a nightmare !
