A Fresh Coat of Paint can Make All
In my years of being in
Real Estate, I have been in thousands of homes. When I walk into a home that
has been newly painted and is now up for sale, if the Realtor has had the place
painted, you can be sure that every door in the home sticks. It is a sure sign
of a cheap paint job.
- People think that anyone can paint and I guess if you
mean anyone can put paint on a wall that’s true, but not everyone is a painter.
I know that painters
have a terrible reputation, and much of that is well earned, but find a good
painter and it can make a world of difference.
- In other blogs I talk about how
finishing a project is the most difficult part of any job and aesthetically the
paint job is the finish for a home. The blending of colors and the lines
between trim and wall can be a very beautiful thing to experience when it comes
to a paint job. A good paint job can make or break the look of a home.
When Realtors have a
home painted, they are just trying to clean up the look of the home so it shows better and that
may be a good idea, but the sticking of the doors and windows is a sure sign of
a cheap paint job and tells any buyer that they will need to re-paint. I walked
into a home once and the painter had sprayed everything, even the screens on
the windows. I guess that painter was the lowest bid for the job. Now I
understand that trying to keep expenses down when a home is put up for sale is
important, but when it comes to painting, a little more effort should be placed
on getting a painter that may not be the most expensive but is skilled at what
The great part about
paint is that you can change the look of a home for a very reasonable price. I
do it all the time in my home, I get tired of the look of the bathroom, so I paint
it a different color. In My business of Property Management in Orange County Ca. I allow Tenants
to customize their rooms as long as they understand it must be changed back to
the original color when they move out, or it can be taken out of their deposit.
Paint can be a very personal thing and for Tenants it can make the house they
are renting feel more like their home and that will make retention of a
Tenant more probable.
