Q&A November 2011

Question:

Should you always paint a property before putting it in on the market?

Answer:

Most buyers like a fresh feeling property and it gives the impression of little work needing to be done i.e. just move in and enjoy.  Painting in neutral colours is always a safe bet – it means you appeal to the widest audience as some vivid colours you may love personally could turn off prospective buyers. Giving your buyers a “blank canvas” to develop into their dream home is the key to a successful sale.

 

So, if it is possible, freshen up the property with the coat of paint before taking it to the market.
