The dreaded job that makes you more money!

Why would anyone like house painting?

Great question, I’d rather watch paint dry (pun intended).

But, if you’re wanting to sell your home now or in the near future, it’s probably time to change your attitude for a few weeks, especially if you loathe house painting, like the majority of the population do.

You don’t have to be a genius to notice the difference that fresh paint makes to a home, especially if it’s an older one!

Painting Tips to Transform Your Home

1 – Colours.
Almost always go for a neutral palette!

It’s important to keep things simple to help influence future buyers, providing a blank canvas for them to envision their future style, inside your home.

All too often when people want to sell their home, if they’ve personalised each room with a different colour and style, it can distract the future buyer from seeing themselves in your home, but instead they see ‘too much hard work’.

This doesn’t mean that you have to do, white on white on white. Try different neutral shades, paired together with one another, to still create something beautiful and unique.

These are some from Better Homes & Gardens, that we recommend.

2 – Paint Brands.

Resene has been painted as New Zealand’s No. 1 House Paint, labelled as the ‘paint that the professionals use’!

A recent Canstar Blue article demonstrates the various reasons as to why more than 1,000 homeowners throughout New Zealand, choose certain brands of paint.

3 – Curbside Appeal.

Curbside appeal is one of the most important features of your home, when it comes to attracting buyers to purchase your property.

Whilst you may not have a lawn or gardens on your curb, you no doubt have a fence or retaining wall, could either do with a fresh coat of paint?

Painting your front fence or wall is a quick, simple, and easy way to add an element of appeal to your property.

Whilst putting on a fresh coat of paint can be somewhat of a cheaper option than renovating, it doesn’t mean that you have to paint every single internal room, does every room need a lick of paint, or do only a few? However, you may find that the unpainted room/s will then stick out, so in many cases it’s best to just do them all, as at the end of the day it does add more value to the home.
