Sell Your Old Home Quickly with a Color Upgrade

You’ve found your dream home among Taylor Morrison’s houses for sale in Bee Cave in the Austin, TX area. Or maybe you are in the process of buying a house in Jacksonville at one of our popular West Florida communities. Now it’s time to sell your old house. What can you do to hurry things along, without spending on expensive remodeling? Simple: Spiff up the house with new paint inside and out.

Enhance Curb Appeal – Paint the exterior, choosing colors that fit the home’s style and neighborhood. Go two-tone, painting the trim to complement the main color.

Choose Neutrals – Neutral colors make people feel at home and relaxed and, in the right hue, can dress up a room’s appeal. Think shades of beige, gray, muted green, understated blue, pale butter yellow, and off white, for instance.

Remove the Wallpaper Boarders – Wallpaper borders can limit a room’s potential and dates the look. Besides, homebuyers don’t want to take it down themselves.

Use the Right Kind of Paint – Generally, use flat paint on ceilings; satin in the kitchen, laundry room, bathrooms and hallways; eggshell in bedrooms, the dining room and the living room; and semi-gloss for trim, molding, kitchen cabinets, doors and woodwork.
