House Painting Value

According to the National Association of Realtors, first-time homebuyers made up 33 percent of all home purchases in the United States in 2016. That’s the highest percentage since 2000, when first-time buyers made up 36 percent of the market.

It’s no wonder that many of these buyers are turning to house painting as a way to personalize their new space. But what does it cost to paint a house? And how long does a paint job last?

The average cost to paint a house in the United States is $9500. For a 2,400-square-foot home, that’s about $3.75 per square foot. The cost can vary depending on the size of the home, the type of paint you use, and the number of coats you apply.

The average lifespan of a paint job is about five to seven years, but it can last longer if you take care of your paint job and choose high-quality paint.

If you’re thinking about painting your house, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Choose the right time of year to paint. The best time to paint the exterior of your home is in the spring or fall, when the weather is mild. Avoid painting in the hot summer months, when the paint can blister and peel.

  • Prepare your surface. Before you start painting, make sure to repair any cracks or holes in the surface of your home. This will help the paint to adhere better and will make your paint job last longer.

  • Choose the right paint. There are a variety of paints on the market, so it’s important to choose the right type of paint for your project. If you’re painting the exterior of your home, choose a durable paint that can withstand the elements. For interior painting, you can choose a paint with a lower sheen for a more matte finish.

Painting your house can be a great way to personalize your new home and add value to your property. With a little planning and research, you can find the right paint and get the job done yourself, saving money in the process.
