If you’re a real estate agent, you probably know the importance of making a good impression on potential home buyers. Whether you’re trying to sell or buy a property, you know a home’s visual appeal can make or break a deal.
One of the most effective ways to impress homebuyers and sell a home fast is to update a home with a professional, high-quality paint job. A home with a beautifully painted interior and exterior instantly attracts potential buyers. Likewise, a home with outdated or dull paint will get pushed to the bottom of the pile.
Some things in life do not require quality. For example, if you’re thinking about painting one room in your house and you don’t plan on selling your home for many years, you might not need to hire a professional. It’s up to you. Painting is time-intensive and requires a lot more skill than one may think if you want to get the job done right. However, as a real estate agent, you want to address one of the most important, and perhaps overlooked, characteristics of a home — its paint.
A poorly painted room will show. You’ve probably seen homes with fading or chipping paint or paint spilled on woodwork, trim or floors. Buyers are less likely to have interest in a house that’s in disrepair, and fresh paint is one way to show the previous owners cared about their property. Fortunately, a professional painting service can complete a great paint job quickly without sacrificing quality. That’s what we’re here for.
There’s no doubt about it — you can benefit greatly from partnering with Shoreline Painting. Not only do we paint to perfection, but we also value customer satisfaction. You want a partner you can count on and who is a master at what they do. If you work with Shoreline, you know you’re working with the best painting contractors for real estate agents. As with any good business partner, you know you can depend on us. We want to see you and your clients succeed.
If you’re wondering whether a real estate agent should hire a painting contractor, we say yes — not just because it’s what we do, but because it will boost the value of your property. Our service will make the selling or buying experience run more smoothly, and you and your client will be able to rest assured the job will get completed with excellence. We look forward to working with you, and here are all the reasons you can look forward to working with us.
1. Rapid Turnaround Time
Shoreline Painting combines quality with speed. With more than 35 years of experience and a carefully trained team, we know how to work fast and produce amazing results. We make it possible to meet deadlines with confidence.
We have the experience to quickly and efficiently make estimates, propose our solution and deliver. You won’t have to anticipate our next move or wonder what you got yourself into. We make sure you understand every detail and expense in our plan of action, from start to finish. With us, there are no surprises, and we state all the details clearly with a degree of professionalism you can’t find elsewhere. All this makes it easier for you as a real estate agent to make your clients satisfied.
The quicker we work, the quicker you’ll sell. We understand how important it is to pay attention to detail. Homes sell when they:
Look desirable— By hiring Shoreline, your property will make a great first impression on potential buyers or clients. They will imagine themselves living comfortably and happily in their new home. We’ll team with you to help your clients throughout the staging process.
Are move-in-ready— A quality paint job lasts for years. Your clients will have peace of mind knowing they can enjoy their new home for a long time without needing new paint.
Have curb appeal— It’s extremely important to catch a buyer’s attention from the get-go. If a home has great curb appeal, it will entice buyers to come inside and see what else the home has to offer. Our exterior paint services make a home pop and stand out from the competition.
Take great photos— How else can you draw attention and create interest without gorgeous photos of a home’s interior and exterior? A fresh coat of paint will captivate people when they look through real estate photographs.
Have better appraisal outcomes — Make a positive impression on a home appraiser with updates that add a lot of value to a home, like quality paint.
The first step in selling a home involves marketing, and we’ll help you get started with the perfect paint job. With a lot at stake, you don’t want to take a chance with a less reputable paint company. It only makes sense to go with a name and company you can trust, depend on and know for sure will deliver high-quality results with speed, passion and pride.
2. Consulting With Experienced Painters
The right or wrong paint color can increase or decrease the value of a home. Our experienced painters are trained to determine the best color and type of paint for a home’s interior or exterior. We will also make sure you know exactly what to expect and how much time our services will take. Our goal is to partner with you to help you achieve success.
Our experienced painters will determine the best paint for your property, considering:
- Size of room
- Architectural detail
- Light exposure
- Furniture or trim in a space
- Color schemes already present in the home
- Current paint condition
Our painters will also keep in mind:
- Current color scheme trends
- Colors of other homes in the area
- Colors that help sell a home
We understand the right paint color can substantially boost a home’s value, and it is not always best to paint everything white. In 2017, an analysis by real estate website Zillow produced some interesting insights into the power of color. Zillow looked at 32,000 photos from homes that sold around the country and compared colors and sale prices with homes that were mainly white. From this analysis, they found:
- Rooms painted in shades of light blue or gray can sell for $5,440 more than expected.
- Living rooms of light brown or beige sold for more than $1,926 than expected.
- Dining rooms with slate-blue walls sold for $1,926 more, on average, than homes with white dining room walls.
- Homes with “greige,” or gray-beige, exteriors sold for $3,496 more than similar homes with brown or tan colors.
- White bathrooms sold an average $4,035 below similar homes.
Not every painting service provides expertise when it comes to choosing the right color. As a real estate agent, you need a painting team that is going to help you choose colors that will make a home stand out and entice buyers.
Our consultation is not just about color, either. We consider any repairs that may need attention to successfully paint a surface, whether it be a floor, wall or cabinet. We start all our services with a consultation to make sure we meet your needs and head down the right path together.
No matter what paint service you need to sell a home, we have you covered. We offer a wide range of services, all backed by our years of expertise. As a partner with Shoreline Painting, you can expect help with any of the following:
- Interior or exterior painting
- Specialty finishes
- Wallpaper installation
- Cabinetry finishing
- High-gloss application
- Drywall installation
- Drywall repair
Some homes may only need a fresh coat of paint on kitchen cabinets to make a sale. Other architecturally ornate homes need special care, consideration and painting mastery to add era-specific finishes or wallpaper. We can handle that, too.
We inspect all surfaces for imperfections, properly prime surfaces, fill holes and gaps, clean and sand trim and protect surrounding areas before lifting a paintbrush. Our duties do not end there. After painting, we make sure to clean our work area to a shine. Our work is our passion, and no job is too big or too small for Shoreline.
For example, we are a Fine Paints of Europe Certified Master Painter. This designation means we are qualified to paint with lustrous high-end paints — perfect for luxurious homes with high-style or antique woodwork. Our specialty paints will impress your clients, whether used for trim, walls, furniture or floors, and include finishes such as:
- Venetian plaster
Why bother going to several different companies for your painting needs when Shoreline does it all? We save you the hassle of searching for a great painting company because we’re right here and we’re happy to serve you.
4. Unmatched Quality
Although a professional paint job may not be important for a home you plan to keep forever, when it comes to real estate, you don’t want to skimp on quality. If a house does not make a good first impression, potential buyers will look elsewhere. Beautifully painted rooms are a must-have in the real estate world. Hiring a professional painting company is a smart move.
Painting is not something just anyone can do. It requires skill, the right tools and years of experience. A professional painter considers a lot of factors the average or inexperienced painter would overlook. If you take a chance with painting, you may wind up having to repair damaged floors, trim, windows or a bad paint job, which will take more time and cost more money in the long run. Even worse, the value of your home may decrease.
With Shoreline, you can relax because you know you’re getting unmatched quality. Not only is our painting technique the highest quality you can find, but our management is also the best in the trade. We value clear, consistent and considerate communication at all times, making us the ideal business partner. With Shoreline, you can expect:
- Trained and skilled painters
- Management expertise
- State-of-the-art tools
- Eco-friendly materials
As a real estate agent, you need a partner you can trust and rely on. We are here to provide a quality paint service and customer satisfaction. With Shoreline, you can expect a perfect paint job that demonstrates:
- Careful preparation
- Cleaning and sanding
- Lasting results
- Full cleanup
Plus, management is onsite at all times during a painting project, so you can rest assured we are providing only the finest service. If you work with us, you won’t have to worry about quality and can focus your energy and time on other business matters. You know you’re getting the best for your clients with Shoreline.
5. Genuine Values

Because we understand your needs, we’ll work with you as a team to seamlessly achieve success. You can trust we take great pride in what we do, and we prioritize customer satisfaction.
