Exterior Painting-Getting Ready To List Your Home

If you are considering selling your home there are few  home improvement projects that have as great an impact as a new coat of exterior paint on your home.  Modifying or at the very  least,  refreshing the exterior paint on your home completely revitalize the look of your home and makes it more attractive to potential buyers.

It’s the first thing buyers notice when viewing a home and exterior paint also…

  • adds value
  • is attractive to a buyer
  • painting is a relatively inexpensive repair that goes a long way
  • fresh coat of paint goes a long way with buyers
  • paint and flooring are 2 areas that buyers highly evaluate when home shopping

Getting this house ready to list.

 

Fresh paint adds curb-appeal. Even if your home is well-taken care of,  chipped paint and a not so well-taken care of exterior could give potential buyers the illusion that the interior / structure is not well taken care of and scare people away.

That being said, if you’re planning to put your house on the market in the near future, you’ll also want to consider which shades will attract the broadest range of buyers.

Exterior Post Lanterns On A Budget

 Exterior Post Lanterns

Add a touch of sophistication and grandeur with a pair of outdoor post lights at an entrance of a home or driveway. Exterior post lanterns  not only make a bold statement, they also enhance the beauty of any residence while providing years of maintenance free illumination.

If you’re on  a budget (and who isn’t these days) you can easily do some minor upgrades to your current exterior lighting that won’t break the bank, are relatively easy DIY projects, give you a high-end look and save you money.

For this project, we replaced the original post lanterns with new Hampton Bay Exterior Post Lanterns that we found on sale at a local home supply store.

3 Philips Duramax Blunt Tip Clear 40 watt bulbs were installed into each of these exterior lanterns.

We kept the original 6 foot aluminum posts but painted them with Tremclad metal rust paint, in a black matte finish to match the finish on the lanterns. 2 Coats of paint were needed to cover the original white paint.

Project completion time from beginning to end took about 2.5 hours. Materials and supplies  to complete this project-$120.00.
