Yep, probably…sorry to tell you that. Most homeowners that I speak to do NOT like painting. Guess what? Neither do the people that are considering buying your house.
As a result of this distaste for painting, other houses that have been freshly painted with the tried and true neutral colours will be much more active on the market.
Are you willing to leave money on the table just to get out of a little painting? I didn’t think so.
Here are a few things to keep in mind when considering whether or not to paint:
- Make sure all rooms are neutral and light
- Ensure walls are in good condition – no scuffs and marks
- Take a look at the baseboards – make sure they are not dirty and grimy
- Don’t forget doors and trim – they get marked up too
Above all, remember, that while painting may not be your idea of a fabulous weekend, it will definitely pay off in the long run and will help you sell your home for more money!
