Fix all leakages and waterproof the house

Choose no more than three colours for exteriors
The exterior of the house is the first thing that potential buyers will see. To create a good first impression, it is important to make sure the exteriors of the house look good and durable. If you are thinking of giving exterior walls a fresh coat of paint, follow the 60-30-10 percentage rule: 60 percent is the main body of the home, 30 percent is the doors, windows and balconies and 10 percent is the front door and shutters. Do not use too many colours on the exteriors since a variety of shades can be distracting.
Know which rooms to prioritise for painting
If you are planning to paint the entire home before putting it on the market, you need to plan the home painting in a manner that it is less stressful. Prioritise painting the living room, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and foyer.
