Buying an existing home in the Vancouver area? If so, congratulations! It’s an amazing place to live, work, and play, and we should know. We live here, too. However, there are a few things that you should know, and one of those is that painting that home before you move in provides you with some significant benefits. Why is that?
Why should you paint an existing home first, before you move in? There are quite a few reasons. One is that it helps ensure that you are able to get the perfect home with less hassle. In fact, it might be impossible to find the ideal new home otherwise.
It’s actually pretty unlikely that you’re going to stumble over a home that has the right number of bedrooms and bathrooms, square footage, yard space, location, and is the right combination of colours for you and your family. By painting before moving in, you can cast a wider net and choose from more homes.
Another reason is that painting before you move in helps to minimise the signs of the previous owners. Most of the homes you’re looking at are staged to make them appealing to buyers while the family remains living in them. They probably look very good right now, but once the owners move out, things change.
Pictures come off the walls, revealing nail holes and discoloured portions of paint. Walls will be nicked and scuffed. Baseboards will be marked. By preparing yourself to paint before you move in, you help ensure that you’re getting a pristine home – a blank canvas unsullied by the previous owner.
Finally, it’s a lot simpler and more affordable to paint before you move in, rather than letting it wait until afterward. If you paint now, there is no need to move furniture around, or rearrange your schedule to accommodate painters. You also save up to 35% on the costs of painting, which makes this a no-brainer.
Of course, one of the most important aspects of painting a Vancouver home is choosing the right painting company. At Elite Trade Painting, we have decades of experience working in the area and we know the neighbourhoods well. We can even visit the home you want to purchase during the buying process to inspect it and provide you with an accurate quote.
