First Choice Painting has some tips on some quick home improvement changes that can make a big difference!
Selling your home: When you are ready to sell your house, you want to be sure that you have cleaned it from top to bottom. You also want to make any repairs to appliances that you will be leaving as part of the sale. The next step is to fix any holes in walls and remove extra clutter like on bookshelves and large pieces of furniture. This will make the house look larger and the buyers can use their imagination to see what their own items might look like in the home. Another major way to be sure that the house gets the most reaction from buyers is to paint the house. Putting a fresh coat of paint on the walls and the baseboards will make the house seem fresh and feel much cleaner. Make sure that you choose a color that is neutral so that the buyer can look at it and see what they want. If you go with a bold color, it may be what keeps a person from buying it knowing they will have to paint it again to their liking.
Buying a home: When you are ready to buy a home, it can be exciting and nerve racking. After you have gone through the process and received your keys you are ready to move in. This is where you should stop and make a decision about paint. It is always easier to paint a house before all of your belongings are in it and people are trying to live there. You could take time to paint the rooms before you move in and make them a color of your own. This is a great time to choose if you want an accent wall and where you want it.
