Why a Paint Consultation is Important Prior to Selling Your Home

Here at Relux Decor we assist with all aspects of home staging and Paint Consultations are our first recommendation when a client is getting ready to sell their home. Updating the interior and/or exterior paint selections of the home is worth the cost and often brings in up to 50% to 500% return on your investment depending on your real estate market. If you are thinking about selling your home, a color consultation is a great first step to get your property prepared.

What is a Paint Consultation? It’s an onsite meeting with one of our expert color consultants to assess the current color choices of the home. We make suggestions on which rooms need updating in order to have the greatest impact on potential home buyers. Paint consultations start at $150 for an in-home visit.

Why are Paint Consultations Important? Neutralizing a space is an efficient way to appeal to many audiences (in this case new home buyers). Neutral paint colors generally support all existing furniture colors, create a calming mood, and work well in any room. The right paint color will work with any style home as well, whether it be traditional, contemporary, minimalist, or coastal to name a few. However, oftentimes paint colors are not what they appear to be on the tiny little swatch you bring home from the paint store. Natural and artificial light, along with placement, have a huge impact on how the color looks in your space. Paint consultations can eliminate any mistakes and save you money on having to repaint, before you commit the wrong color to your walls.

What if I’m not moving? Paint consultations are not just for those who are relocating. Color trends change and over time paint can become chipped, dirty, or faded. If you need help narrowing down your choices, or attaining that magazine worthy look, Relux Decor can help. Call us today to schedule an appointment!
