“I would like to add to tip #7 about painting window trim. While it is certainly a nice touch to paint the window trim on the outside of a home, in New York City, owners have more control over the inside of their property as opposed to the outside, which is handled by the co-op or condominium. With that said, interior windows that have dark trim deserve a paint job in preparation for listing an apartment for sale. By painting the frame a lighter color, it offers a clean and softer look, which appeals more to buyers than a harsh dark trim. Curb Appeal House Painting
