Are you thinking of selling?

Here’s how to add value to your home with a residential painter in Sydney.

A lot of prospective buyers like to be able to just move in and not have to do anything.

So, if you have updated as much as you can in a strategic way that will add value to your property and make it sell faster than it’s a win/win.

Some people don’t want to buy their forever home it may be for other reasons that they move:

  • Job/employment opportunities
  • School
  • Downsize
  • Upsize

Whatever the reason maybe you want to get the best price you can for your property.

And the buyer will want to get your property at a good price to no doubt.

How to add value with a residential painter in Sydney

First impressions are everything and painting can add a lot of value to your home and for little effort compared to other options.

New paintwork and a fresh coat of paint can freshen up and give your home a new lease of life.

Keep in mind your target audience/prospective buyer and what would they like.

When it comes to colours keeping it neutral can be the way to go as it will still look fresh and beautiful.

And then you can decorate with some key pieces to add your own personal touches and colour.

Prospective buyers find it easier to imagine themselves in your home when things are more neutral.

It’s also more appealing and easier for the new homeowner to come in and add their own touch.

Exteriors and first impressions

As the exterior is generally what a prospective buyer will see first definitely spruce this up if it needs.

Stand back and look at your home as a prospective buyer would and evaluate the:

  • Walls
  • Doors
  • Gutters
  • Roof
  • Windows
  • Front door

A fresh set of eyes can do wonders to get a friend or family member to do a quick critique of the above for you.

Does the outside especially the front need some TLC?

Will a good clean be enough or do you need to take it a step further and do some repair work and a new coat of paint?

Also with the exterior of your home don’t forget the garden.

A bit of garden maintenance can do wonders whether it be a tidy up or a bit of an overhaul.

Our friends at CC&M Landscapes would be more than happy to chat with you about your garden needs so don’t hesitate to get in touch with them.

Add value with a residential painter Sydney with your bathroom and kitchens

Kitchens and bathrooms are always the most expensive areas of the home when it comes to renovating and these key areas usually help to sell a home too.

A new coat of paint to these areas can do wonders to freshen up an area.

Depending on the age of your home if the kitchen does need some updating you could even get a quote from us to paint your kitchen cupboards (depending on the material the cupboards are).

Freshening up the kitchen cupboards, adding some new tiles or even a coat of paint to wall tiles (using the correct paint type) can do wonders too.

This can be a great economical way to spruce things up and great for a shorter time frame too if time is of the essence.

Engage a licensed painter in Sydney

When you are ready to get some house painting quotes for your North Shore and Northern Beaches home make sure you use a licensed painter.

There are a lot of shonky people out there unfortunately and sometimes when you pay peanuts monkeys is what you get so do be careful and ask questions.

Declutter

If we can give you another piece of advice from a residential painter in Sydney that has seen a lot.

Declutter!!!!

Declutter!!!!

Declutter!!!!

Presentation really is key. And here’s a great selling guide from realestate.com.au.

So, use the time to spring clean and if you have the storage or garage space box up what you can live without while your house is on the market.

Your real estate agent will thank you for it, the prospective buyers will thank you for it as they’ll be able to see your beautiful home at its’ best and you won’t have as much to pack when it comes to that time.

Why not sell or have a garage sale with what you don’t want a raise a few dollars to put away for a rainy day.

It’s the start of spring: How to spring clean your walls and doors

It’s the start of spring and we have some tips by the best painter in North Shore.

What better time than to start a spring clean and take stock of your interior and exterior house painting.

Check those hard to reach places and areas you don’t normally see on a regular basis such as your roof, guttering and any other areas up high.

And internally why not have a spring clean and go through those cupboards and drawers that are a common dumping ground for things you just can’t find a place for.

We are all guilty of having one of those drawers or cupboards where we just shove things to sort/deal with on another day.

Anyway, it’s also a good time to clean off the walls and give them a wipe over and some TLC.

Check the ceilings for any areas of possible leaks/water damage.

Unfortunately, your plaster is normally the first place you notice any roof leaks once it finally shows up on your plaster.

And it can be water stains can be a horrible eyesore.

5 tips by the best painter in North Shore

Tip 1

Use a vacuum, damp microfibre cloth or for more stubborn stains spray and white or the like to clean your interior walls and doors.

You can check out our previous post “3 Ways to Look After Your Kitchen and Bathroom Walls Once the House Painters Have Been” to see what you can do with a vacuum.

Tip 2

Have you found some artwork on your walls from a little Miss or Master that shouldn’t be there?

Then try some magic erasers to remove.

They do normally work wonders but be careful if the wall is newly painted.

Also depending on how long the artwork has been there and what has been used to create the artwork you may or may not have luck with them, but fingers crossed.

If you do need the area to be repainted we are the best painter in North Shore so you know who to call.

Tip 3

Internal doors in particular also take the brunt of a lot.

With little children and their dirty hand prints through to them running into them on their little scoot along toys to older children and their balls and bags knocking them about.

A regular once over with a cloth will keep day to day marks at bay but when it’s time for something more heavy duty than a detergent or spray and white can work wonders.

Or if you like the more natural options then you can look at vinegar and water and some lemon adds a nice fragrance.

If your internal doors are a bit far gone then it may just be easier to repaint with the best house painters in North Shore.

Tip 4

Walls and ceilings in kitchens and bathrooms attract a bit more dust and grime given the steamy nature of their environments.

Hopefully, if your room is properly ventilated and the correct paint has been used then you shouldn’t have any mould problems.

It’s a good idea if you do at the first signs to jump on any mould though.

Tip 5

Now when it comes to the exterior of your home a high-pressure cleaner can work wonders and they normally come with some great attachments.

If you don’t have a high-pressure cleaner though a hose can work wonders.

Do be careful when cleaning the outside of your home especially if you are dealing with weatherboards or wooden windows.

If there are already some signs of damage you don’t want to add water into the mix unnecessarily.

If you do find some damage here’s how to handle it.
