Gain the Best Price and Paint to Sell Your Home Faster

Take the advice of real estate experts to sell your home faster and gain the best price. Paint the interior in a neutral paint colour that makes the room look spacious. Brighten the area in a flash and apply a fresh coat of paint to the ceiling.

Aim for walls to be the backdrop of the home rather than the focus. Try greys, light browns or light neutrals in white or beige. Shades of blue are also a great choice.

Choose neutral colours to set the tone, such as light grey, to create a relaxing space. Think the living room, bedrooms, hallways, or foyers and entryways. With no effort light grey, together with a pale taupe can make you feel at home.

White or lighter beige, and greige (a grey beige) work well anywhere. While muted blues suit the kitchens and bathrooms. Muted – not bright – yellows are great in the kitchen.

A professional painter can provide the cleanest and efficient paint job. But if you want to save yourself a dollar, you can always paint it yourself.

Two tips If you choose the DIY option:

  1. Make your job easier and use the right equipment. And giving the final product a professional appearance.
  2. Note the temperature that you paint in. Cold temperatures outside can mean that the paint takes longer to dry and can drip.

  1. You have lived in your home for over five years. A fresh coat of paint will get your house ready for that successful sale.
  2. There are holes or patches in the walls that need repair and paint.
  3. There is any form of writing on any wall within the home.
  4. Able to count over one colour on any wall, not including white.
  5. Hang pictures on the walls, using nails.
