Flipping Over Paint – Prepping Your Marietta Home For Sale

Interior PaintingIf you find yourself needing, wanting, or having to move once again, you will likely need to prepare the home you are living in for resale or fix it up to be rented out.

When moving, you want to make sure that the interior and exterior of the property is presentable for prospective buyers or renters.

One thing that probably needs to be done is repainting the property. It is a lot of work to sell a home and move, but if the property isn’t looking good, it will take longer to sell unless the price is set at rock-bottom. Most people opt to fix up the property a bit and sell at a higher, but still competitive price.

When people come to look at the property, the condition of the exterior paint on the house makes a big impression. This is curb appeal that you hear everyone talking about.

How appealing your home looks on the outside makes a huge impact on how quickly you will sell. People will do a drive by before deciding to call about a property. Many drive by and never call when the home is in disrepair on the outside.

If you’d like to draw them in to see the inside, the best way to do that is to make the outside look good. Painting and landscaping are two of the keys to adding to your curb appeal. Once you’ve created curb appeal, you’ll need to ensure that the inside of your home is also fresh and appealing.

The interior of your home should be cohesive yet interesting. You can use paint color choices and textures to create a cohesive look, and use decorative elements or techniques to make it interesting.

You don’t want an interior that looks sectioned off, with rooms painted all different colors and decorating themes different in every room, that’s where making it look cohesive comes in.

Choose a few paint colors that blend well together and start painting your home from the furthest room from the front on forward until you get to the front entry way.

If you start in the back of the home, you can easily make adjustments as you go if necessary, conversely if you start in the entry way, any mistake or bad color choices will stand out like sore thumbs.

So, if you decide to do the painting on the interior of the home yourself, be prepared for it to take a while and be more of a project than you thought.

  • Be sure you prepare the walls first by filling in all the holes, patching any drywall, sanding surfaces that need it, and sealing cracks and edges with silicone.
  • Of course you will want to tape off area like the windows, and along the ceiling and baseboards.
  • Be careful not to paint over light fixtures or switches or electrical outlets.
