  Should I Paint?- Check the Roof.

House Exterior

The big decision is whether to paint or not to paint. When you look at
your house from across the street, does it look tired and faded? If so, a
paint job may be in order. It is often a very good investment and really
spruces up the appearance of a house, adding dollars to offers from
potential homebuyers.

When choosing a color, it should not be something garish and
unusual, but a color that fits well in your neighborhood. Of course, the
color also depends on the style of your house, too. For some reason,
different shades of yellow seem to illicit the best response in
homebuyers, whether it is in the trim or the basic color of the house.

As for the roof, if you know your roof leaks, repair it. If you do not
repair a leaky roof, you are going to have to disclose it and the buyer
will want an entire new roof. If you know your roof leaks and you don't
repair it and don't disclose it, look forward to hearing from lawyers at
some point in the future.

Otherwise, wait and see what the home inspector says. Why spend
money unnecessarily?
