A home that shows well and has great curb appeal will outshine other listings and can maximize the perceived value of the property. Simply put, you add a great deal of value when you paint to sell. Cracked or peeling paint, nail and screw holes, dirty looking walls and stained ceilings can really distract potential buyers from focusing on envisioning themselves making the property their home. It’s not surprising that real estate agents and homeowners are increasingly investing in painting and home staging as part of the process of selling properties. When buyers walk into a home that is beautifully decorated with a clean, hole and crack-free, professional paint job, they will immediately get the impression of a well maintained and quality home.
