The Importance of Paint

1545192_449292251863109_1960809141_n

The importance of fresh paint when selling your home cannot be overstated so we recommend Paintzen. When it comes to buying a home, first impressions are everything. If you’re selling your home, one of the best and most efficient ways to revitalize and enhance your home is with a fresh coat of paint. New paint makes your home look fresh and clean and gives your home a welcoming feel. I know this because as a real estate agent I go in and out of many homes with clients and see their reaction to homes which have been recently painted. The feeling a Buyer has when they enter a home is very important because it sets the mood for the rest of the viewing. If upon entering the buyers mood is positive, the buyer might look past certain deficiencies in your home, if upon entering the buyer’s mood is negative, they might not look past those deficiencies. First impressions really set the tone for the rest of the viewing. This is the importance of fresh paint when selling your home.
Whether you live in a condo or a house, it is my experience that on average, homes which are staged sell faster and for higher prices than those homes which are not. Painting your home is an important part of staging and an extremely efficient way to invest money in renovations. The National Association of the Remodeling Industry, from the United States, says that the average cost someone spends on paint when renovating is $700 and the average return on that investment is 200%. That means if you spend $700 on paint the final product will be worth $1,400. That is a higher return than kitchen renovations which carry an ROI of 79%, bathroom renovations which carry an ROI of 69% or a new roof which has an ROI of 61%. In fact, paint ranks as the highest yielding home renovation investment in their study. These statistics are being used by Ontario Contractors and can be found on their website by CLICKING HERE.
Of course, you can expect figures from Canada will be different from that of the United States but what is clear is that a fresh coat of paint is still at the top of the list in regard to return on investment.

Regardless of the figures in these studies, there is something intangible about the feeling someone gets when they walk into a home. If a buyers feeling is positive and they feel the home is inviting they will be more likely to submit an offer. If a Buyer walks into a home and their first reaction is that the house looks dull they will be much less likely to make an offer. Therefore a freshly painted home means so much more than your return on investment, it could mean the difference between selling your home and not selling your home. If your home has many areas that need to be fixed, addressed or updated, a fresh coat of paint may assist you in getting the buyer to look past one or more of those issues.
Please remember that the longer a home sits on the market the tougher it is to sell. It’s just like a loaf of bread at your local supermarket. The longer the bread sits there, the more stale it gets and eventually some loafs of bread get thrown in the garbage, shortly after the price is lowered. The reason I mention this is because you might be thinking that you will try to sell your home as it is and if it doesn’t sell – then you will repaint your home. The reason this doesn’t usually work is because by the time you get around to repainting everyone already thinks there is something wrong with your home due to the fact that it been sitting on the market for so long. You only get one chance to make a first impression so it is highly recommended that you do it right the first time. Otherwise, you will likely get less for your home than what you would have gotten, had you done it right to begin with. This theory applies to price and presentation. The theory for price works the same. If you over price your home, you will get less than you would have gotten, had you priced it fairly to begin with. This is the importance of Fresh Paint when Selling your Home.

Thank you for reading about the importance of fresh paint when selling your home. The following tips will assist you in choosing paint colors:
Neutralize – The Importance of Fresh Paint when Selling your Home
Choose neutral colours so that buyers will not be distracted by someone else’s style. It helps if the buyer sees the walls of your home as a blank slate. Having said that, neutral colour does not always mean white. Using light colour that has neutral hues can be just as good or better.
De-personalize – The Importance of Fresh Paint when Selling your Home
You should remove any wallpaper which contains distracting designs and cover it with a new coat of paint for a more updated, revitalized look. Any designs which could take the Buyers focus away from picturing themselves in your home should be repainted.
Exterior – The Importance of Fresh Paint when Selling your Home
Don’t forget to paint your front door including any shutters and trim, fencing or mailboxes. It’s also a good idea to paint or stain areas of the property like porches, patios, decks and the garage. People often forget about these details but they are important because the exterior is the first area of your property a buyer will see.
Interior – The Importance of Fresh Paint when Selling your Home
Interior spaces appear larger when painted in a neutral colour. Give your walls a new coat of paint in a light neutral color to give them new life and allow the room to feel spacious and bright. If you paint your moldings the same neutral color as the wall it will give the illusion of higher walls.The importance of fresh paint when selling your home cannot be overstated.

I recently came across a website called Canada Budget Binder that references a study completed by the Appraisal Institute of Canada which shows that the return on investment in fresh paint can be as high as 100% along with replacing knobs and hardware, and flooring returning as much as 75% of what is invested.
