PAINT YOUR HOME BEFORE RENTING IT TO GET MORE PERFORMANCE BEFORE AUGUST
Rentals are often bland, boring, lacking in architectural details and are usually identical to others in the same building or on the same street. When it comes to renting it out- especially for the summer vacations, it becomes hard to beat the competence. We are sure you would prefer to rent your property faster and for a higher price! When presenting your home to prospective rentals, first impressions are crucial. People begin judging your home the moment they see it. They prefer homes that are well- maintained, clean and clutter-free. So what can you do, without investing too much?
Paint is a relatively easy and inexpensive way to make a dramatic change…and with a bit of work and a few cans of paint, can also be “un-done” prior to moving out.
We believe in the power of paint to transform a space…especially a rental! There are just a few things you should remember about!
Let there be light.
Giving some light makes a major difference in nearly any space. One of the biggest giveaways in homes is dark, heavy color on the walls, dark corridors, and dirty walls. We recommend refreshing every corner of your property. For a truly cost-effective solution, always allow windows to bring in some natural light as well.
Choose sophisticated neutral colors.
Now is not the time to experiment with that “fun”-looking lime green. But that doesn’t mean you need to go all white, either. Rich mid-tone neutrals like mocha and “greige” create a sophisticated backdrop that makes everything look more pulled together.
Color trends have changed drastically over the last 5 years, so it’s critical to blend what’s currently trending into your home in order to freshen its appeal. The challenge with paint color is picking something that will work with your current finishes (counters, backsplash, and flooring). A common solution for example for updating a “brown” kitchen is painting your kitchen cabinets off-white to update a dark, dated kitchen instantly!”
Create a gender-neutral master bedroom.
Appeal to everyone with a clean, tailored master bedroom, free of personal items and clutter. Choose toned, fresh colors to give it an elegant and intimate atmosphere. Light blue, beige or some delicate strips on one wall would be a great choice!
