Painting Your Home for Resale

Panache Painting Exterior - Painting Your Home for ResaleWhen it comes to selling your house, creating a great first impression is essential to attracting potential buyers to your property. At Panache Painting and Decorating let us help you with some simple improvements that can make a big difference.

Look at your house through the eyes of the buyer. When you first arrive at your home, what do you see? Is there clutter in your front yard? Are there decorative features that have become an eyesore, or perhaps are more to your personal taste than potential buyers?

Front Door

Whilst painting your front door may have seemed like a good idea at the time, there’s a good chance that your buyers won’t be in awe of your creative flair. Most likely, all they will see is work. Your front door is the first thing many potential buyers see. By repairing any damage to your door and painting your door in a high gloss black, or even red, can turn it into a feature. If you have a garage door, you may also consider matching your front door to the colour of your garage door. These are small improvements, which go a long way to enhancing your street appeal.


Of course the exterior of your house is more than an appealing front door. When it comes to your exterior it is about attending to an array of small projects which can make all the difference. Look at your gate, fence and letterbox. Do these need cleaning, repair and a repaint? Chipped, cracked and tired looking exteriors can put buyers off. Consider freshening up any painted surfaces of your home. Don’t forget the back of your house either. Whilst your entrance is critical to a great first impression, a tired looking rear of the house can undo much of the great work you have done to the rest of the home.


When buyers walk through your home, they are trying to imagine themselves in your space. There are simple jobs like a good clean and decluttering of your house, which help buyers see the beauty and potential of your space.

As with the exterior, it is important to look at your home through the eyes of the buyer. Are there wall colours and wall paper which remind them of their grandparents’ house? Look at your cupboards and woodwork. People notice tired looking and chipped cupboards and doors. A freshly painted home in neutral colours help buyers see your home as a blank canvas where they can add their own personality and style. At Panache Painting and Decorating we are able to provide direction on colour choices and advice on current trends in the market.

When it comes to selling your home, small investments of time and money can significantly increase the value of your home.
