Should you paint before you sell?

Increase the value of your home Will painting increase the value of your home so that you can sell it for more? The answer to that question is a clear and resounding YES!  A coat of fresh paint can make all the difference when attracting people to your home. Market studies consistently show that repainting your home produces a 140% return on investment. This means that spending $5,000 on a paint job is likely to increase the selling price of your house by $7,000, which is a profit of $2,000. Not only does it increase your sale price, but it also boosts your likelihood of selling at all. Fresh paint in neutral colors will attract many homebuyers. Don’t forget the baseboards and trim! Just like a lawn without edging, painting walls without the trim looks unfinished and dirty.

Some additional tips for consideration if you are planning to sell your home:

Even if the colors are not the favorite choices of the prospective buyer, he or she is likely to be impressed by the clean, stylish look, and is unlikely to be turned off.
