Selling your home is no small venture. You may have repairs to make, updates to complete, and other things to get in order. Have you thought about curb appeal? What are potential buyers going to think when they pull up to your home for the first time? If you’d like to make sure the first impression is a positive one, you should consider new paint for the exterior.
Color Makes a Difference
Take some time to ponder what you’re trying to achieve with the new paint job. Are you looking for timeless colors that won’t go out of style? Are you looking for bold colors that will “wow” potential buyers? Do you want the buyers to feel calm and serene when pulling up to your home? Natural hues will give you a timeless look, bold reds and yellows will “wow” buyers, and blues are known to cause calmness.
Painting the Front Door
If you don’t have a lot in your budget for new paint, you might consider simply having the front door painted. Walking through it for the first time, potential buyers will notice how nice and fresh it looks. You can make the door a statement piece, by painting it a bold color that will stand out against a neutral-colored home, or you can paint it more neutral to contrast a bold-colored home. In either case, it’s a quick, easy, and inexpensive way to increase curb appeal.
Repainting the Trim
Does your home have columns? Shutters? Other decorative trim? Some people prefer to paint the trim the same color as the front door, while others choose a different color entirely. Again, think about what you’re trying to achieve, and ask a professional for help in deciding what will look best.
