Moving or improving? Tips for a flawless painting project

(BPT) – Did you know spring is the best time to sell your home? And now that the housing market is bouncing back, there’s never been a better time to do it. But even if you’re planning to stay put for the long haul, chances are there are some much-needed touch-ups you could be doing to keep your home in tip-top shape. And you don’t have to break your back, or the bank, to do it. In fact, adding a new coat of paint is a quick, affordable, and possibly the most impactful, way to get your project done.

Prep, prime and primp

Misusing color can be a surefire way to turn people off from your home. For a more inviting look that nearly everyone can enjoy, opt for neutral paint colors. A subtle beige, slight grey or even white can do the trick. First, move furniture out of the room and place drop cloths to protect the floor. Remove any picture frames, outlet covers and wall decor. Then, gently scrub the walls with a mild detergent and water mixture using a soft sponge to remove any dirt, grime or lint. Don’t forget to prime your walls before applying color to ensure the best end-results.

Paint like a pro

For an ultra-smooth finish, try Purdy’s line of Ultra Finish roller covers. These premium microfiber roller covers, available in 9-inch lengths and varying nap thickness, provide an even release of paint and deliver a consistent application from start to finish. Plus, they work great with any kind of paint and finish, including satin, semi-gloss and gloss, taking the guesswork out of the DIY equation.

Paint your Dearborn Michigan home like a pro

When applying paint, start at the top and work your way down. For superior results you’ll want to fill the well of your roller tray with paint, dip the roller in half-way and then roll it back onto the tray’s angled platform to easily remove excess paint. This will reduce dripping and improve overall paint cover.             The best approach for applying paint? Use your roller cover to make an overlapping “W” pattern in a 2-foot by 2-foot area; then fill in and repeat.

For smaller interior paint projects or tight spaces, Purdy also has a variety of innovative mini roller choices that are versatile, lightweight and can quickly and easily deliver a perfect finish with smooth rolling action. These combined features make them the ideal applicator for a variety of projects like painting doors and cabinets, to freshening up tables, chairs and even bedroom furniture.

Keeping your color conviction

If you’re still feeling deprived of color after your painting project is complete, never fret. There are several ways to add a pop of color throughout your home without slathering the walls with offensive paint colors. Try incorporating fun accent pieces in your favorite colors – think lamps, frames, pillows and rugs. You can even include larger focal pieces like royal blue armchairs or a patterned couch to make a bolder statement. By keeping the overall aesthetics of your home neutral and inviting, and enhancing them with a few sight-provoking embellishments, house guests will be asking you for home decorating tips. And if your end goal is to get your home sold, consider these minor improvements a step in the right direction.

10 Tips for Getting Your Home Ready for an Open House

A great open house can often make the difference between many interested buyers and no interest at all. The house must impress prospective buyers as soon as they set their sights on it. Good first impressions are everything in the real estate industry, and homes sell based on their aesthetic appeal, which starts as soon as someone sees the house for the very first time. If you want to sell your house quickly and receive close to your asking price, keep the following tips in mind when preparing your home for the open house:

1. Remove clutter from your home.People enjoy houses that contain plenty of space. Selling your home also

Getting Your Home Ready for an Open House

becomes easier when you have less of your belongings to move out. Spacious houses with lots of room attract buyers that need a lot of storage for their own belongings. If your house seems too small to contain the things in it, they will probably look elsewhere.

2. Remove personal touches. Family photos should be kept in a location where guests in your home won’t see them. When people consider buying a home, they want to know if their own personal touches will fit in with the structure of it. Let their imagination run wild without your own personal belongings.

3. Replace carpets with hardwood flooring. Carpets attract nothing but messes, hair, and odors. Hardwood floors are easier to clean, and they look great no matter what else is going on. Hardwood flooring costs a bit of money, but the potential return on investment entices many people to do it. Kitchen flooringalso makes a big difference in the sale of your home, as more and more homebuyers are placing greater emphasis on hardwood flooring throughout the home to close a sale. If you have the time, energy, and necessary funds, this could be the “wow” factor your home needs.

4. Use a fresh coat of paint. Nothing improves a home’s appearance more than fresh coats of paint. To find out what color schemes are most popular, consult a paint specialist at your local hardware store. For small spaces, make sure to select paint that makes the room appear larger. Though it sounds like a daunting task, often all you need is a little elbow grease and a quick sweep of paint to freshen things up.

5. Create great curb appeal. If you know you have an open house coming up, mow the lawn the day before the visitors arrive. Make sure to rake up the loose grass. Try to plant flowers and cut down the weeds as well. Visuallyappealing homes can grab the attention of buyers even before they step foot on your property.

6. Decorate the interior of your home the day before the open house. Place flowers in vases and hang simple decorations on the walls. Look through design magazines for more ideas on how to make your home’s interior more interesting.

7. Clean the house top to bottom the day before your open house. Ask someone to help you because you will need it. Make sure to wipe down windows, windowsills, wax the floors, scrub the walls, run the vacuum, and more. Remove all pets from the house and clean up their messes as soon as possible.

8. Make your own treats or buy some for the guests. They will appreciate having something to eat while they get a feel for the nuances of your home. You can help them to feel more at home with some old-fashioned treats like chocolate chip cookies, brownies or fudge.

9. Make small cards that showcase your home. Use specific, concrete details such as location in relation to amenities, house size, yard size, and more. The more information that people have about your home, the more interested they might become later.

10. Get your hospitality on. Treat the guests as friends, and show them that your home can open up to them just as it has to you and the people you care about.
