Does painting the interior of a house add value?

Painting the interior of your home in prep for a sale can help attract buyers and command a higher asking price at time of sale. An Interior painting project gives your home a clean and modern ‘like-new’ appearance that eases potential buyer concerns. For most resale projects, we recommend going with neutral color palettes. Good options in the neutral color family include grays, whites, and off-white colors.

Exterior Painting

An exterior painting project is one of the best options  to improve resale value on your home. The exterior is the first item a potential buyer will see and it’s the best way to make a great first impression. An aging or faded exterior may cause some buyers to lose interest, or try to negotiate a lower price based on the potential cost of the project. If you are looking for inspiration, we have after photos of homes in the greater Fayetteville, AR area in our residential portfolio.

Kitchen Cabinet Painting & Restorationkitchen restoration nwa

The kitchen is one of the best areas to impress potential buyers. If the kitchen has dated colors or cabinets that have fallen out of style, a cabinet restoration project offers a great way to update the look and feel of the kitchen at a significantly lower cost than full cabinet replacement.

Finish Your Deck With Painting & Staining Services

If your home has an outdoor entertainment area like a deck, porch, or patio, this is a great selling point for your property. To really make this relaxing space stand out, you should consider having a fresh stain or coat of paint applied. Once this project has been completed, you can stage the area with a few fun pieces of patio furniture. This will help your future buyer to really envision themselves and their family in your home.

Best Interior Paint Colors for Resale Value 2022-2023

When selling a home, it pays to think carefully about which colors you decide to choose for interior painting. Neutral colors are always a safe bet when looking to increase resale value. A light gray or beige wall can create a contemporary look and provide potential buyers with something relatively neutral that’s easy to work with. Other popular colors include taupe, white, and off-white. Avoid overly bright colors like yellow or orange as they can be too overwhelming for potential buyers.

If you’d like to add some color to your home without overdoing it, muted shades can be a good option. Jazz up the walls with hues of blue, green, or gray that are softer than primary colors. To make the space feel more calming and inviting, you can use pastels like pale pink or baby blue. You should also avoid using dark colors for painting large spaces as they can be too overpowering.

No matter which color scheme you choose for the interior of your home, it’s important to keep the look consistent throughout. If you’re using dark colors for one area, try to incorporate similar shades into other parts of the house too. This will create a cohesive look that potential buyers can easily appreciate.
