Prepping for a Home Sale with Painters in Burlington

With the housing boom in Burlington and the surrounding area, many people are selling their homes to cash in on the rising real estate market. This makes residential painters in Burlington very busy, as we help folks prepare their home for showings in order to get top dollar for their investment. We love helping our clients by making their home look beautiful, clean and fresh which in turn produces the best price and the most money so that the client can find their new dream home. This is really when we get to see the value that paint can bring to a home and to our clients. Being a commercial painter in Burlington allows us to really improve peoples’ lives and we love it.

When selling your home, it is important to remember the exterior painting requirements, and not just the interior. While both are really important, the exterior is the first impression a potential buyer is going to receive. Even if the inside looks fresh and clean and beautiful, an old exterior is going to disturb the curb appeal, make the house look older, and make the buyer think about possible problems or repairs that need to be done. It’s amazing what painting a garage door, or the trim or shutters can do to the exterior of a house. Burlington painters can also fix up your porch, stain a deck, repaint railings and spindles, paint fences, clean up window frames, or even reseal your driveway. It may seem a little overwhelming, but you don’t have to do everything. Take an honest look at the exterior of your home and yard and pick what needs the most immediate attention. You can also seek advice from your realtor to see what they say, and ask your painter in Burlington what most clients ask for when preparing their home for the market.

Next you obviously want to look at what interior painting can do for your home. While it is easy to get overwhelmed with how many rooms you have and what is most important, your Burlington painters can help you narrow your focus and help you get the most out of the money you will be spending before your house is on the market. One thing to remember is that you can get a room deal with your residential painter. The more rooms being painted, the cheaper it is to paint per room. A painter may also charge less knowing that the rooms are empty and ready to paint, as opposed to a completely furnished room where the painter has to take the time to take down pictures and move and cover furniture. Same goes for trim and ceilings. Another area you may want to focus on is the kitchen. The kitchen is the heart of a home, where family and friends most often gather. A clean, spacious and bright kitchen attracts many buyers. The house will feel more move-in ready, and every other room is generally a quick fix after that. Kitchen painting includes the obvious like walls, trim and ceiling, but you may also want to think about the potential for kitchen cabinet spraying. This option is much cheaper than replacing old, tired cabinets, but will make them look clean, fresh and new and will no doubt impress any potential buyer going through the house.

No matter who is selling which house, it is proven that interior and exterior painting will always bring a return on investment or even surpass it. Talk to your Burlington painter today to see what we can do to help you in this process. The sooner the better! Commercial painters are very busy this time of year, especially with the housing boom.
