Preparing your home for viewers, or “staging” as it’s called, is important. It will not only ensure your property is sold faster, but can potentially add thousands of dollars to its value.

One of the most important things you can do when selling your house is to de-personalize it. That way the potential buyers can picture themselves in the home. Giving your walls a fresh coat of neutral paint will not only make your home seem lighter and bigger, it will enable the viewers to imagine how they would adapt the rooms to their needs.

It is also easier for the buyers to move in and use the rooms immediately, which they couldn’t necessarily do if the walls were say, bright purple or lime green. However, it’s important to remember that neutral doesn’t always mean white. Some subtle color choices can actually enhance you room, such as repainting walls that have strong colours with rich neutral hues.

If you’re looking to add a little more curb appeal to the front of your home, before you put your brush down, why not create a great first impression by giving the front door a new coat of brightly coloured paint!

It’s not always imperative to be the lowest priced home on the block, particularly when esthetic and other significant improvements have been made. Start your home staging process off right with a trip to Port Paint & Paper.
