Painting Tips for Sellers!

Painting Tips for Sellers! Painting your house before selling it is one of the best ways to get it sold faster and for a better price. But this only applies if the job is done the right way. Otherwise, sellers could hurt their chances of getting their home sold quickly, and they may need to take a price reduction to generate interest. Fortunately, there are some tips sellers can follow in order to make sure their home is painted right. Match the Neighbourhood Colours Whether a seller likes the colours in a neighbourhood or not does not really matter. They’re going to be moving away. When a house is re-painted, it should follow the basic colour scheme of the neighbourhood so it blends in and does not stand out in a way that is not appealing to buyers. Homes that are painted bright or unique colours often have more trouble selling. Make Sure to Prep the Right Way A home has to be prepped before painting, or the new paint may not look right when it is done. For sellers who are re-painting their homes, the prep work can be more important than the final coat itself. It may be necessary to scrape the old paint off, pressure wash the house, make repairs, or otherwise make changes, especially if the seller is changing the colour. Take Your Time Taking your time with painting is important. While it is understandable that sellers want to get the home painted and on the market, doing a sloppy job can reduce the home’s value and make it less likely to be sold quickly. Cutting corners and being in too much of a hurry can mean the job does not look as nice, and that buyers will be less interested in the home. Focus On the Details Details matter, and when a seller does a good job painting trim, around windows, and other small areas where detail is required, the paint job looks much better overall. That can mean the difference between getting it sold quickly or having it sit on the market for a long time. Ask For Help! There is no shame in asking for help, or asking what someone else thinks of the job that is getting done. By doing this, sellers have a better idea if they are on the right track when it comes to painting their house, so they can keep it looking great. A well presented home can offer sellers a competitive edge in a busy market! Know When To Hire a Professional In some cases, it is better to hire someone else. Big houses that are very tall or intricate, or houses that have specific problems or issues that have to be addressed, may be better off with professional painters. That is something for a seller to keep in mind before they start buying supplies. Looking for more ideas? Call the Romeo Circle today!    

Home Improvements: Do It Yourself or Hire a Professional?

You are thinking about doing repairs or renovations, do you hire a professional contractor or do it yourself? Although there is little doubt that many homes for sale could benefit from a few DIY improvements or stylish decor changes, there are some tasks that are best saved for a professional who can safely and quickly get the job done. How do you draw the line on what you can fix yourself and what requires a professional? It’s Not All Easy! While some home improvements or weekend projects can be completed successfully by almost anyone, there is a big variation between amateur and pro status. Even if all you want to do is repaint a room, you have to decide if you’ll settle for “acceptable” or you want exceptional. Simple tasks can sometimes be daunting and end up not turning out the way you thought. Only you can determine your level of expertise and set the standard that you want. In general, however, most homeowners can handle simple projects and replace light fixtures, hardware and even faucets and toilets. Anyone who can use a level, basic power tools or is detail oriented can probably install simple stock cabinets and shelving units, replace worn or outdated vinyl floor tile, weather-strip doors, and windows, and install doorknobs. Tasks like hanging a new door, adding insulation to your attic, installing ceramic tile and even repainting an entire room don’t require a great deal of expertise, but they usually mean you’ll need a helper unless you’re okay with the process taking a while. The materials may be difficult to deal with, and the final results can reflect your status as a do-it-yourselfer, but it really comes down to how much time, effort, and research you are willing to put into a project. What is Your Purpose? If you’re preparing your home for sale, or if you’re a perfectionist at heart, take stock of your abilities and practice on a small project before you begin a major task. Paint a piece of furniture, tile a table top to use on your patio, hang a storage cabinet in a closet or paint the laundry room. If you feel like you can easily get the small projects finished, you may want to try your hand at some of the more complicated fixes as you work your way up. For semi-specialized renovation like hanging a chandelier or replacing a faucet, you can always seek advice from a handy neighbour or sit in on a workshop at your local home improvement store. There are many helpful guides in the form of articles or videos on the YouTube as well. That said, professional services exist for a reason. Some projects require a lot of know-how or are simply very time-consuming for an individual to complete – if safety is ever a concern, hiring an expert may be the better route to take. Sometimes you will get an estimate that is well within your home improvement budget. When in doubt, ask your
