One of the easiest ways to make a home more desirable to prospective buyers is through paint – and here’s how.
How Paint Can Make Your House More Desirable to Buyers
You can use paint to:
- Repair blemishes on the walls
- Change perspective on imperfections
- Tone down your color scheme
Here’s a closer look at each.
#1. How to Use Paint to Repair Blemishes on the Walls
Fresh paint is definitely the go-to when your existing paint looks tired or worn – or when it’s cracked or peeling. When buyers see paint that’s in poor condition, they automatically believe that the home hasn’t been maintained very well, and that’s not really conducive to selling quickly (or at the best possible price).
#2. How to Use Paint to Change Perspective on Imperfections
No wall is perfect, but you can use paint to cover imperfections and make your walls look better. Choose paints with flat finishes to even things out – and if you’re doing a bathroom or kitchen, choose an interior flat enamel that’s washable and that can handle humidity.
#3. How to Use Paint to Tone Down Your Color Scheme
When you’re selling your home, you need to make it appeal to the widest possible range of buyers – and that means opting for neutral colors. Bright and unusual colors don’t typically help you sell, and neither does stark white. Play it safe by picking neutral colors like beiges, browns and grays.
