When it is time to sell your house or unit it is a very good idea to consider getting the property professionally painted. Time and time again, we see how an affordable paint job leads to a better sale price for the owners.
Listing Agent Nick Kouparitsas from Ray White Ascot explains “Potential buyers are often more focussed on what is wrong with a property than what is right with it. A property might have city views, but a buyer can’t look past the fact that the property desperately needs to be painted”.
We have noticed that the colour scheme of the property can also add significant value prior to sale. This house in Hamilton was painted in whites and neutrals. The danger of painting a property in bold or bright colours prior to sale is that it can alienate potential buyers that may hate the colours chosen.
What is important to note is that painting prior to sale can be very affordable. This Hamilton property was not completely repainted but instead a list was made that included small touch ups, high traffic areas and painting out feature walls. Our clients were very happy with the end result and excited for their upcoming auction.
