Painting Your House To Sell

Whether in Nyack, Palisades, Suffern, Stony Point or anywhere in between, the look of your house will help to sell it. 

A fresh coat of paint is the fastest and most inexpensive way to make your property more attractive to buyers. It can make just about any room look stylish and new.

The challenge is determining what paint colors and options you should choose out of the hundreds available. Should you be daring and select “designer” colors? Should you consider stippling, ragging and other effects?

Experts say to keep it simple. Stick to just two or three traditional colors for your entire home. The simple consistent tones will make your property appealing to the tastes of more buyers.

You should also remove any "boisterous" wallpaper (big, bold prints, bright or dark colors, busy patterns.) That includes borders. It will be worth it when the house sells!
