No matter what time of year you're getting ready to sell your house, by taking the time to touch up the paint in some strategic areas, you will be putting your home's "best foot forward". Not only will it make your home look well-maintained, but it will make it look and feel fresh and inviting...like welcoming the new buyer home. Here are some prime areas to consider.
Most people don't think too much about the stairs in their home...they are intended for function, to get you from one level of the house to the next. But if you give them the chance, stairs can be part your creative decorating.
Do you have an older home with a tired, worn out looking, brick fireplace? Maybe you have brick on the exterior of your home and you are just plain tired of it and want to change it up and liven it up. What are you going to do? Maybe you're tempted to throw a coat of paint on it...that shouldn't be a big deal, or should it?

We spend time energy and money painting and decorating the four walls in each of the rooms of our home, but few people consider the 5th wall in each room. Did you know you had a 5th wall? Look up! You may not have thought about your ceiling in that way, but it is "prime" space, and often ignored.
Many people love the "fresh" smell of a newly painted room, but in reality, that smell can be dangerous to your health. That smell is caused by the drying of the paint which releases the VOC's into the air. They can cause headaches, irritated eyes, nausea, and even cancer.
There aren't many things that feel fresher than a newly painted room or rooms in your house. It feels good, it looks good, it's a nice change, it's an easy way to spruce things up and it's an important part of home maintenance. Although painting is a relatively inexpensive way to accomplish all those things, it still costs money, which doesn't come easily for most of us.
