5 ways to increase the value of your home (Step 4)

By Andrew Willink 


4. Paint 

Another tip to increasing house value is to paint the walls.  Are your walls chipped or ugly? Or perhaps you have outdated wallpaper that is peeling off.  By painting the walls a neutral colour, preferably bright white as opposed to yellow-tinged cream, the benefits are abundant.  A neutral colour can increase the size appearance of a room, create a more modern feel to the house, and be more physically appealing to a wider variety of buyers.  Whilst this job is possibly more time consuming, it is still a cheaper and faster alternative to making complete renovations to increase the value of your house. If you decide to paint feature walls, again, neutral colours are recommended. Not everyone will appreciate your “artistic” flair, and lime green walls are never, ever, in season.
