Coastal Home Pros Can Help Make Your Property Shine
If you’ve ever sold a home before, you already know how important it is to clear out unnecessary junk and keep the place sparkling. Your home should present a fresh and clean face to potential buyers–you want them to be able too see themselves in the space. If your decor has too much personality (or too much clutter), they may not be able to visualize how their own style will work in the space.
Our Handyman Services Can Help You Get Your Property In Tip Top Shape
Even if your home is clean and relatively neutral, you can still take steps to maximize your “sell-ability.” Choosy buyers want to know that your home is well-maintained. Simple things like sticking doors, burnt out light bulbs, missing or non-functional hardware, and dripping faucets can really turn a buyer off. Investing a little time up front to make sure everything is in good repair can save you big money when it’s time to move your home.
Start With Paint
If you’re drawn to assertive and eclectic color palettes and your walls reflect your penchant for bright and bold, you’ve probably been advised to paint by a realtor or a nosy neighbor. But even if your interiors are already relatively neutral, painting can be a great pre-listing move. Chipped trim and dingy walls full of nail holes just don’t inspire the love. And when you’re looking to move real estate fast, you want every buyer to fall in love with your home.
Zillow Paint Analysis Shows Clear Trends
In 2018, Zillow published their Paint Color Analysis with insights from over 135,000 sold home photos. Perhaps unsurprisingly, their sales price analysis showed a sales price premium for homes with cool, neutral paint colors. When it comes to bathrooms, pale grayish blue reigns supreme, while living spaces seem to demand a warm-toned neutrals. A red kitchen is a no-no, as is a brown dining room and a yellow exterior (yellow homes sold for roughly $3,400 less, on average). Perhaps the most surprising paint color insight from Zillow’s study? A black or charcoal gray door can add over $6,000 to the average sales price of a home!
