To Paint or Not to Paint

By
Real Estate Sales Representative with Sutton Group Summit

Painting the outside of your home traditionally takes more time and expense than a comparable area on the inside. You have to deal with ladders, more paint and, of course, the weather. So when preparing your house for sale, you don’t want to do any exterior painting unless it is really necessary.

How can you tell? Walk across the street and cast a critical eye on your house. Can you notice areas where the paint is chipped or faded? If so, then so will potential buyers. It’s worth your while to invest in getting a fresh coat of paint on these areas. The good news is that painting, whether on the exterior or interior, is the least expensive way to make your home look more attractive — and therefore more desirable to buyers.

Paint is still the best antidote to a dated "look".   Nice post.

Marina,
Sometimes you can get by with just doing the trim or a portion of the house. It is worth being very careful in your evaluation.
