First impressions are everything. If you are trying to sell your home in Denver, you need to make sure you instill the best possible first impression in the minds of potential buyers. Although a clean-looking home and well-maintained property are both important, fresh paint is perhaps the biggest factor and will make your home look clean, bright, and inviting.

Not only is painting your home one of the most important things to do before listing your Denver home, it is the best bang for your buck. Paint and supplies are relatively inexpensive, and they go a long way when you are trying to sell your home.

These days, potential buyers do not want to waste their time on homes that are not suitable for them. They do a thorough job of screening homes without ever visiting them in person, and you can bet that an unsightly paint job will have your home dropped almost immediately from their short list.

The Rohm and Haas Paint Quality Institute offers great tips on painting your home before listing it on the local market, including the following:

  • Fresh, neutral colors appeal to the largest amount of potential buyers. For your exterior, make sure it fits in with the rest of the neighborhood.
  • Make sure all necessary prep work is done before painting, such as removing dirt and patching and repairing any areas in need.
  • Stress the recent paint job to potential buyers. This adds value to the home and buyers place high value on a well done paint job.

In the end, a fresh coat of paint for your Denver home could be all you need to convince a potential buyer to make an offer. This work should be included in all staging budgets. For more ways to sell your home in Denver, call me at 888-860-1931.
