Park City and Deer Valley Real Estate Tip: Paint Can Highlight Existing Finishes
Whether you are looking to purchase or sell a home or condominium in the Park City or Deer Valley area, one thing is certain....real estate buyers and sellers lean towards new, fresh and clean. At first glance, achieving an updated look can seem like a complicated and expensive project. Some buyers, when looking at older real estate feel like they will need to refinish the entire home in order to get it up to par. On the flip side, some owners may feel pressure to take on a remodel project prior to listing their property for sale.
Something for both real estate buyers and sellers to consider: The smallest change can make a huge difference! For example, I was touring a lovely residence in the Empire Pass area of Deer Valley yesterday. The Larkspur residence, built in 2007, has beautiful finishes, but leans more towards the Mountain Rustic design. This design tends to be on the darker side of the color palette. While this remains somewhat popular in Deer Valley and Empire Pass, lighter colors that highlight finishes seem to appeal to the most Buyers. Since the finishes were classic throughout the home- darker woods, natural stone tile, stacked stone fireplaces- the owner simply painted most of the walls in the home a lighter color. The paint was enough to highlight some of the nicer finishes, and transformed the residence.
So the moral of the story... when buying or selling real estate in Park City and Deer Valley, don’t become overwhelmed…sometimes the smallest change can create a big impact and add value to your real estate. Think paint before thinking about any other change to the home. The outcome is magical.
