Walls, Ceilings and Paint
Eliminate all water stains on the ceilings and floors. Water stains mean leaks, and leaks can mean costly repairs. Make these repairs before selling your home. If a buyer realizes, after-the-fact, that he or she has to sink money into a house, it could lead to litigation.
Once the repairs have been made you may need to paint. This is usually a good idea anyway, since clean, bright walls can make a big impression. A fresh coat of paint can be a great investment since it is inexpensive and you can do it yourself. If you do decide to paint, it is best to use colors that appeal to all, like white or off white.
