If you want to sell your Upstate South Carolina house, A Perfectionist Touch can help by crafting the right palette and applying the professional painting skill to make your house stand head and shoulders above the rest. The housing market can be tough, and you don’t want your house to linger and become just one of a long line of undesirable houses that are for sale. Preparing it properly and revealing it when it’s at its best are key strategy points to make the sale.
Some realtors claim that the single best investment to make when preparing a house for sale is to freshly paint it, inside and out. First impressions are much more favorable toward a freshly painted house than to one where the homeowner promises to paint in the color of your choice. Houses that are freshly painted garner a better reception from potential buyers.
3 Considerations When Choosing to Paint Your House for the Market:
- Color – the exterior color should blend with the neighborhood, keep with the personality of the region, yet still stand out with its own strong curb appeal. White remains a solid choice for American homes, but the earth tones – sages, creams and tans – are also extremely popular. Your color consultant from A Perfectionist Touch can recommend just the right color siding and the right accent color for the trim, front door and garage doors.
For interior paint, stick with neutrals, beige, cream or grays are excellent choices. When too many colors become involved, people spend more time thinking about the color than considering the advantages of the house.
- Finish – The wrong finish is almost as bad as the wrong color. A high gloss finish used with a bright white will make a living room blinding and feel unwelcoming and sterile. A flat paint in a high traffic area may be impossible to keep presentable during the time it takes to sell the house. A Perfectionist Touch will recommend the finish that is right for each area of your house so you can get the best wear possible and present the best face to the community.
- Front door – This is one of the biggest keys to selling the house. The front door and entryway has to be amazing. If your porch concrete or tile is chipped and discolored, the door scraped from Fido’s claws, the handrail shaky and the lighting old and poor, your house will be whispering “neglect” to potential buyers. A Perfectionist Touch can cure most of these problems with an artistic application of top quality paint. We can touch up old lamps and metal handrails with a fresh coat of metallic paint. We can paint concrete porches to give them a new lease on life. And we can design the perfect front door to match the house and draw attention.
By following these 3 suggestions, your house can soon be ready for the market with an attractive, fresh face to present to the public. Your professional painter’s expertise and skill, provided by A Perfectionist Touch, can help carry your house towards a positive outcome.
