Pre-Sale House Painting

A fresh coat of paint is often cited as the cheapest and easiest way to significantly improve the sale price of your property.

Not only is pre-sale painting an excellent way to spruce up the old, but it’s also the best time to fix any minor cosmetic issues that could raise alarm bells in the minds of buyers.

With over 45 years of experience in painting residential and commercial properties throughout South-East Queensland, we know exactly what buyers want and you, as a seller, need. From conducting an initial colour consultation to repairing, sanding and finishing the interior and exterior of your home, we offer the complete property pre-sale painting service to make the process simple and efficient.

In combination with our sister company, Rochele Decorating, we can also provide advice and/or a full interior decorating service to maximise the appeal and sale of your property.

Invest in pre-sale house painting

At Rochele Painting we get numerous requests from customers to have their house painted prior to selling. Many people think they need to spend enormous amounts of money renovating before they sell. However, in the current market over-capitalising can often occur when a seller spends too much money on building works in a gamble to achieve a better sale price. In the current market a seller must be smart and spend money where they know they will get a return. Professional painting is an affordable and a sure way to get a better sale price on your property.

After 40 years in the industry we have seen enough DIY disasters to allow us to tell sellers not to attempt the painting project themselves. Selling a house is one of the most stressful experiences of peoples lives. Attempting to paint a property prior to a sale can often push people over the edge.

Another benefit a seller gets when painting just prior to selling is that often we are painting once the furniture is removed. Painting a property bare of furnishings reduces the price of painting an interior, because it allows our painters to have uninterrupted access and therefore they are able to complete the job more quickly.

  • It is a fact that painting a house or unit prior to it going on the market maximises the sale price for the seller and agent.
