As a real estate agent who has been in the realty industry for close to 30 years now, when someone or a couple or a whole family is looking sell their home, I have recommended that if the walls need sprucing up, a fresh job is a good idea.

On a diynetwork.com article, there is a list of great painting tips that I would like to share with all of you:

2. Paint like a pro.
Painting is your chance to show off your skills. Use an edge pad for clean lines around doorframes, ceiling edges and corners so your walls look great β€” down to every last detail.

6. Put your sandwich bags to work.
Slip a small plastic bag over your doorknobs and tape the edge to avoid getting paint in places it wasn’t meant to go. You’re so resourceful.

12. Take away the shine.
Paint doesn’t always adhere to glossy surfaces. We recommend using a light grade sandpaper to take the gloss off the surface so your new paint sticks like it should.

1. Paint!

Look for the rooms in your house that could use a fresh paint job. The last thing you want is to have potential buyers walk through your home and see get a sense the house comes off has too dull.
