    Thinking About Selling Your Home? Avoid These Painting Mistakes

    Painting. It seems like such a simple, straightforward home task—and, in many ways, it is. But it can also be a task that goes terribly wrong. If you’re not careful, that deep red hue in the dining room or the art deco-inspired accent wall in the entryway can cost you more than just the price of paint.

    There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to painting, but there are certain paint mistakes you definitely want to avoid if you’re thinking about selling your home (or if you just don’t want to kick yourself every time you stare at the wall). But what, exactly, are those mistakes? According to a recent article from Apartment Therapy, design experts claim baby-inspired hues (like baby blue or pastel pink), accent walls, and painting your ceiling in anything other than flat paint are major painting no-no’s—and if you want your house to appeal to buyers, you need to avoid those mistakes like your home sale is depending on it (which, ironically, it does).

    Bottom Line:

    You can paint your home in whatever way strikes your fancy. But if you’re thinking about putting it on the market, it’s not about what strikes your fancy—it’s about what strikes the fancy of potential buyers. So make sure to consider these tips, and paint with a potential buyer in mind.

    Davis is so professional, his local knowledge is unmatched in my opinion! We were shopping a very competitive market, needing to buy a house before my baby was born, and as a first time homebuyer I was unfamiliar with the home buying process he made it so easy and also was great council in many  instances! I truly value the representation I got from Davis and The Space Agency, I was able to ask him any question, communicate during odd hours, anything I needed he was right there! I’m so thankfu…
