Do I need to repaint my house to sell it?


Home owners hoping to sell this spring should ditch ambitious DIY plans and simply tidy up and repair tired paintwork.

While many may believe a last-ditch kitchen revamp or Ground Force-style garden redesign, would send their home to the top of potential buyers’ lists, experts say smaller tasks could make all the difference.

Many householders spend the Bank Holidays on DIY projects to help boost property value and saleability. However it is often the smaller jobs like painting the front door that can make all the difference when looking for a quick sale.
