Just Slap a Coat of Paint On It

It’s amazing what a well-chosen new paint color scheme can do for the exterior of your home. It’s the least expensive major upgrade you can invest in and actually expect to make money on when you sell your home.

Really. It’s amazing what a well-chosen new paint color scheme can do for the exterior of your home. It’s the least expensive major upgrade you can invest in and actually expect to make money on when you sell your home.

Look at these:

1135 Rock View Ave, Eagle Rock

AfterThis sold in 2009 as the pale beige seventies house it was. The new owners painted it a tasteful dusty gray-green and really transformed it.

 

 

 

1312 N. Avenue 57, Highland Park

I sold this in 2005 as a major fixer for $475,000. That buyer did little to it and resold it for $575,000. The current buyer has done much more including the really great fence, but you couldn’t see much change until he painted it these nice colors.

1319 Las Flores, Eagle Rock

This is a really good example in terms of showing what effect the paint has on value. When this house was white, it was towards the beginning of the major slide in prices. I sold it in 2007 for around $489,000. It just sold again at the end of 2009 for $470,000. Considering that the average price in Eagle Rock went down about 32%, this property held its value incredibly well. I credit the paint job for a major influence.
