The importance of having a freshly painted house when selling

When moving home, most experts agree that you should give your property a quick makeover if you want to sell it for the best possible price. Empty the garage, clean the garden, and clear out all the clutter. But what about giving it a fresh coat of paint? Is it really worth the time and effort to give your interior a sprucing up?

The short answer is yes! 

Here are five reasons why a fresh coat of paint can help you achieve a higher asking price and sell your home more quickly.

  1. First impressions count
    A new coat of paint helps to make your house look and feel more welcoming. Bright airy
    rooms will make prospective buyers feel more positive about your property the moment they step through the front door without having to say a word.
  2. Improves the look of photographs
    A fresh coat of paint helps make your rooms look brighter and feel bigger in photographs.
    Since most home buyers start looking for homes online this can help ensure you get a steady stream of viewings which should translate into more offers.
  3. Helps to create a decluttered look
    Painting your home forces you to declutter. Pack away as much as possible into moving boxes and get rid of unused items. The end result will be a powerful combination of a fresh, bright, clean and uncluttered interior which will make prospective buyers more inclined to meet your asking price.
  4. Removes stale odours
    You may not realise that your home is full of stale odours. This is especially true if you have pets. A fresh coat of paint can help to remove stale odours without having to resort to air fresheners which most buyers will spot a mile off.
  5. Saves the buyer a job when they move in
    Nobody wants to have to paint walls after the stresses and strains of moving house. It is much better to do the hard work for them and paint your walls a fresh clean neutral colour so that it’s ready for them when they move in.

Painting your home may seem like a lot of work. But in most cases putting a little time and
effort in up front will help you achieve a higher price and help you to sell your home more quickly. So clear out all that clutter and get your paint brush ready, you won’t regret it.

Why Choose Us?

Let’s face it. Every House Painter should have insurances in place before they step foot onto anyones property. 
If anything were to go a little pear shaped, we are covered from head to toe with full home and public liabilty insurance.
If you’re looking to have your home professionally painted, it’s best to choose a house painter in Sydney that has the appropriate insurances.

We aim to maintain our 5 star Google rating reviews, along with our Truelocal client reviews. 
At the end of the day, as professional house painters we want our clients to feel pleased with the results and we go out of our way to make sure that’s the case. One of our strongest attributes as a painting company is our ability to communicate effectively and our willingness to manage each individual project with as little interruption and stress as possible. 

We don’t just give your ceilings and walls a once over, patch and sand – We make sure all framework has been gapped and woodwork patched as smoothly as possible. If your ceilings and walls are suffering from a bad case of wear and tear, we give them a skim coat to make the surfaces as smooth as we can. Windows, doors, skirting and framing can get hit a lot over the years, so we like to pay closer attention to getting those surfaces sorted out first. For us, there’s nothing a little bit of enthusiasm can’t fix.

Let’s face it.. The competition is hot, as professional painters in Sydney we’d be fooling ourselves if we didn’t notice the Elephant in the room.
Luckily for us we are always up for a challenge!

As far as painting goes, we work ourselves out, to be able to achieve an overall fantastically impressive painting job for our clients. Over the years we’ve noticed a change in painting prices and we’ve had to match those by making our house painting quotes more cost effective while still maintaining our high standards. We will continue to provide for the people in need of a fresh coat of paint and a happy set of hands.
