Preparing your home for sale this spring? Don’t forget to paint!

painter-2247395_1920If you’ve been paying attention to the real estate market here in Rockland County and Bergen County, you know houses are in short supply and selling fast! Whether you’re as far north as Suffern or Stony Point or as far south as Franklin Lakes or Fair Lawn, you know that houses that are move in-ready and properly priced are going from contract to closing in record time.

Even with a sizzling market, there are a few things successful sellers do to make their homes stand out and sell quickly. With several decades of painting experience in the Hudson Valley and north Jersey, here are a few of our takeaways for successful home sales:

  • Paint your home’s interior and, if necessary, the exterior. As the saying goes, there’s no second chance to make a first impression. We recently did exterior painting and interior painting in Park Ridge on a house that just hit the market. Home buyers are naturally going to opt for the freshly painted home when given a choice between that and the house in need of a top-to-bottom paint job.
  • Choose a realtor who invests in marketing your home. A home search can be a time consuming and exhausting endeavor. Do you really want to visit a home after viewing a listing with blurry photos or clutter on display? Do your research and don’t just settle on a realtor. There are some talented realty professionals in our area with an eye for photography, which allows your home to stand out from the crowd. One of our longtime customers in Nanuet sold her home in just a few days thanks to a realtor who took care of every last detail before posting the listing.
  • If decor isn’t your thing, hire a stager. Home stagers are a wise investment, no matter how small your home. While our well-loved furniture and knick knacks may be a beloved part of our home, they may not appeal to buyers who don’t share your taste. Using a professional, such as Sunflower Staging, is a minor investment that can yield a quicker sale and higher profit. Professionals such as Christine from Sunflower Staging, with whom we worked on a recent project in Suffern, are a tremendous resource no matter how design savvy you may be.

Why winter is actually a great time for house painting in Rockland and Bergen

Winter house painting in Rockland County and Bergen County
At Price-Less Painting of Rockland County and Bergen County, we believe winter is a great time to tackle house painting projects.

When you think about professional painting, you probably don’t envision welcoming painters to your home during the cold months of winter.

It’s time to reconsider. We’ve been at homes in Nanuet, Harrington Park and Ramsey this winter, among others.

House painting in winter makes great sense here in Rockland County NY and Bergen County NJ.

Here are just a few reasons why our Price-Less Painting owner Robert Young suggests you consider house painting this winter:

First, professional residential painters have more scheduling flexibility in winter. With winter being a slower time historically for professional house and commercial painting, that gives you the advantage! Have you decided you’re ready for some new colors on your walls? Chances are, it’ll be easier for us to make that happen for you when we get you on our schedule during winter. It can be good timing for you, as well. Imagine scheduling your winter vacation to Florida and returning to a freshly-painted home!

Second, the environment is right during winter. Summer can be a great time to paint, but winter has its advantages. Chances are good that your home has less humidity during the winter due to the dryness of forced air heat. With our team’s knack for giving you a professional paint job and leaving your home immaculate once we depart, the Price-Less Painting crew can give your home a facelift with minimal impact on you and your family.

Third, we can help you be ahead of the spring real estate market. Let’s face it, whether you’re selling your home in New City or renting out your investment property in Glen Rock, the competitive real estate markets in Rockland County and Bergen County make it essential that your home makes a positive first impression. Get your painting done now so your realtor can have your home photo-ready and get you the best profit!
