If you plan to sell your house, you are probably wondering how to get a good offer. The answer is pretty simple: a home make-over that sells. The discerning taste of the buyers and the big number of similar properties that are on sale provide tough competition in the market.

Simple repairs such as getting rid of clutter, adding fresh flowers, or re-carpeting your home may do the trick. But if you are up for a deal that will command a good price, prepare yourself for some other intensive repairs. The good news is that you can actually take some steps so that can assist to get the best offer at a top price.

What are the possible make-overs needed?

There are two features of your home to consider: exterior and interior.

Exterior Painting

There are things that you should consider when doing your exterior paint:

The Weather

Summer is the best time for you to do a home brush-up. For best results, start painting early in the morning or late in the afternoon when the sun is not too harmful to deteriorate the paint.

The back of your paint can or tin may provide you with important details on your paint application. Recommended thinning rate, spreading rate, and weather conditions when followed properly leads to optimum paint results. Make sure to follow these.

The Surface

More often than not, people tend to focus more on the house paint’s finish. But if you want your crisp-looking newly painted home to last, do not underestimate the importance of surface preparation.

Before starting any other work, the surface must be cleaned from dust, dirt, mildew, and carbon. Moisture which is also a culprit in paint deterioration should also be addressed. Older structures require primer application prior to paint.

If you are handy, you’ll be able to do repairs by yourself. However, hiring professional workers may provide you with a more professional finish. Hire professional painters that are well-adept in a wide range of painting skills for a long-lasting house paint job.

INTERIOR PAINTING
Painting your home interior is less challenging than its exterior. Some things to consider are the following:

The Surface

A brief knowledge on your wall surface can save a lot of trouble. Choosing the correct paint for the correct substrate is vital. But no matter what type of surface you are working on, make sure it is free of dirt, grease, and mildew before primer application. Smoothing irregularities such as little holes and hairline cracks can avoid dampness in wall surfaces.

The Primer
Pick a finish!
Priming is applied for two sole reasons: to seal the substrate and to bind the finish coat. Pick the right primer and it will be your best choice for your best painting job.

The Painting Sequence

Always paint your interior starting from the ceiling to the cornices, and down to your walls. In this sequence, paint drippings will not ruin the newly-painted areas.
