1. Paint It In Neutral Colours
People will shy away from a home with brightly coloured walls. They may not like your colour choices and it may not suite their furniture.
Buyers do not want to have to paint the minute they move in. Most look for colours they can live with or mould around their things.
2. Re-set The Canvas
You shouldn’t think of this as “white-washing” all of the character out of your house but rather as resetting the canvas for the next artist.
Buyers will visualise themselves in a new place more easily if they see it as a workable canvas.
3. This Neutral
Neutral colours also make the house appear bigger spaces feel more open, which is one of the top considerations of buyers.
If your home’s interior is already neutral, find your left over wall paint and touch up any scuff marks. You’ll be surprised at how much better it looks with fresh paint.
4. Use Good Equipment
When you come to do the painting, don’t be afraid to spend a couple of extra pounds on good paint rollers. The cheaper ones make your walls look blotchy.
5. Choose The Right Paint
Semi-gloss paint will make your walls seem brighter. If your walls have imperfections, such as dents in the drywall or cracks in the plaster, consider using flat paint to hide those imperfections. Keep in mind that flat paint shows dirt easily and is difficult to clean, so leave it until just before your open house!
