You'd be hard pressed not to find a buyer who doesn't appreciate a fresh coat of paint. Not only will it enhance your property's value on the market, but it will also help brighten up your rooms and hallways by giving them a clean, solid appearance.

Making the leap from renting a home to actually buying your own property is a big step. If you think you are ready to take the plunge, it’s best to look at both sides of the rental/homeowner equation.

Renters most often sign a lease to live in a certain property for a fixed amount of time, typically a year. That lease may have some restrictions as far as having pets or altering that property in anyway. A monthly rent goes to your landlord, which is fixed for the length of your lease and may be increased upon renewal. That rent might include some utilities, like water and heat, but you may be responsible for others such as gas, electricity or cable TV.

It is more complicated to buy a home, and if you go that route you will have more responsibilities.
