Should You Repaint Your Home Before You Sell It?

Once you’ve decided to move, you have many items to check off on your moving list. One of the main things you should be concerned about is prepping your existing home for sale. One of the best upgrades you can make is bringing in a professional for a paint project. From exterior painting to interior painting, these painting professionals can increase your chance of selling your home faster and at a better rate. Here are some reasons to hire a painting company to repaint before a sale.

Curb Appeal

A fresh coat of paint can make a huge difference in how your home looks from the outside. Remember, regardless of how beautiful you have your interior walls, floors, furniture, or other interior upgrades, someone who’s approaching your home for the first time won’t see that unless they come inside. However, they may be hesitant to come further than the front gate if the outside of your home looks shabby and unkempt. So if your exterior paint has gotten worn down, is covered in mold, or has a faded color, let a professional painting company help you choose the right colors and finishes to give it the revamp that will attract anyone. They can help you pick a color scheme or palette that can match the scheme of your neighborhood while simultaneously helping your home stick out in a good way. Remember, your beautiful neighborhood may also have other homes for sale at the same time you put your place on the market, so you may be competing with your neighbors. A well-painted exterior can attract more buyers and increase the value of your home.


According to RemodelingExpense, repainting your living room offers a 125% return on investment. In other words, your interior color upgrade can end up giving you a profit. Your home is an asset, so that makes it an investment. What better type of investment to have than one that will give you a guaranteed profit, such as an interior paint upgrade? A painting company can ensure a high-quality and professional result that will last for years. As long as you choose the right color scheme to impress a potential buyer, you can let them know that you’ve made an upgrade they won’t have to worry about for at least a decade.


Painting is not only about aesthetics but also about protection. Your home exterior needs protection from the elements such as hail, snow, and extreme heat. Your interior walls need protection from dents, scrapes, and too much humidity. With the work of professional painters, your damaged walls can have their cracks sealed and receive a sealant that prevents moisture damage. High-quality paint can also help deter pests from getting in through the exterior and into the drywall. If vermin can get through because your siding is unprotected, they can dig into your foundation, through the drywall, and enter your home. As a result, the structural integrity of your home can be compromised, plus you’ll be dealing with an infestation. Potential home buyers can rest assured they would be buying a home that’s already properly protected from such elements or vermin.

Time and Convenience

The work of professional painters can save you time when you’re trying to sell a home. If a potential home buyer sees that your walls are smooth, flawless, and newly painted, it can encourage them to buy the home faster. After all, homes can linger on the market for weeks, months, or even years at a time due to competition. Expert interior and exterior work can help avoid wasting time having a home lingering on the market for too long. After all, when you move, you don’t want to have to deal with another home you’re trying to get rid of. Plus, if you’re waiting for your current home to sell before you can move, that can hold up your life plans.

Expertise and Advice

A painting company can offer you more than just painting services. They can also provide you with expert advice on color selection, design trends, and maintenance tips. Did you know that home color can go through various trends? According to the Spruce, green, gray, and black were popular colors in 2023. So, if you’re unsure which color you should direct your painters to use, you can rely on their expertise for guidance. They can advise you on the best trends nationwide or in your particular area. These professionals are painting other homes, and they can give you insight into colors that other homeowners are using. Plus, you may have a color you think looks good and they should just repaint it in the same color. However, they can advise you if that particular color is outdated or may not be popular with somebody who wants to buy a modern home.

Satisfaction Guarantee

As you go through your moving checklist, you may be concerned about wasting your time making certain upgrades that won’t help you sell your home after all. You may wonder if you’re wasting money on a painting service when you could be putting that money into the home you’re moving to. With a satisfaction guarantee or warranty, there’s no need for such a concern. A reputable painting contractor will always offer you some warranty or guarantee on their work. When they know that they can do quality work, they don’t have a problem offering such a guarantee in which they agree to come back to make additional repairs at no cost for a certain period. A guarantee usually means you’ll get your money back within 30 days or less. In other words, it’s a win-win situation where you won’t be wasting money as you will either get the results you want or get a refund.

Contractor for New Home

When you hire an exterior painter to revamp your home before a sale, you may be laser-focused on upgrading that home as much as possible. However, if they do a good enough job and you enjoy working with them, you may decide to use them again in the future. For instance, when you buy a new home after selling your existing one, you may also want to upgrade it with a quality paint job. Or at the very least, you may want a solid professional on speed dial when it’s time to make such an upgrade. By having a painting contractor do their expert work to help you sell this home, you can feel confident hiring them again to work on other properties of yours.

Hiring a painting company when you’re trying to sell a home is one of the best decisions you can make. These professionals know how to apply a quality paint job to your interior and exterior. Such an upgrade can make your home sell faster and at a higher price. After all, any potential home buyer can feel confident the home has protected walls that won’t need new paint for a decade or more unless they decide to change the color. There are so many things that expert paint jobs can do for your home, so don’t take this type of skill for granted.
