Trim Paint – Home Sellers Forgotten Repair

Collier Swecker video blogs about how important it is for home owners that are preparing their home for sale to not to forget to make sure that they put a fresh coat of paint on all of the trim in their home. Most wood trim comes in the form of Crown Moulding, Baseboard, Chair Rails, and Door Entrys. Since most trim is painted white (or some sort of off-white color) in a semi-gloss finish, it often sets the tone for a room and when imperfections like scuff marks, dents, and peeling paint are present, buyers are often turned off and get distracted. Many folks may say that “trim can’t be that important”, but to prospective buyers every little thing is important to them, even things that they will not care about once they purchase the home. Hiring a painter and painting trim is such an easy thing to do and truly affects the sale of you home. If you have any questions or comments email me at or visit my website at
