There is nothing like walking in to a home for sale that has been freshly painted and carpeted. I’ve said it to you many times before that if you are thinking about selling and you have ANY thought that your carpeting and paint need to be redone then don’t give it a second thought-just DO it! You may think “well it’s easy for this guy to say that but it’s a lot of work and expense” but I am here to tell you that when you’ve sold thousands of homes like I have you KNOW with absolute certainty that this is the right advice. Congruent and light colors can change the entire look and flow of any house and many times the look cancels the need to do other things. For example, before I visited the home below I saw that it had laminate counters and I thought “there’s a big negative” but when I saw how perfectly spotless this home truly was everything in the kitchen just seemed to work-INCLUDING those counters. This agent should be commended for the fine job of coaching her clients.

Take a look at the video below to see how incredibly appealing a house can look with a little new carpet and fresh paint.

post It’s SMART to Paint Your Kitchen…But NOT PURPLE!

Kitchens should always be light bright and cheery-NO EXCEPTIONS! The effect you should be going for when trying to sell your home is to show off a ton of cabinet and counter space and to create a feel of a nice sunny area for the family to start their day. Also if you haven’t peeked your head inside a new home in a while then you may not have noticed that kitchens are BIG. When you are competing with as many new construction homes as we are in today’s market you MUST be fierce competition for them if you are serious about selling. This means that YOUR kitchen better be top notch. Paint is a great place to start but keep in mind that dark colors make rooms appear much smaller while light colors have the opposite effect of making rooms appear much larger. Take a look at the video below to see how this seller has invested in loads of upgrades but really missed the mark with color.
