Paint a brick fireplace for sale?
My Realtor would like me to paint my brick fireplaces before putting the house on the market. They are a little dated, but painted wouldn't they just look dated and painted? Like I couldn't afford to reface them? The brick itself isn't dated, just the arrangement which will not change.
Clearly I'm not a fan of painted brick. Unless you've got really ugly brick, to me, painting it is like painting tile.
It seems sort of low end starter home tacky cheap to me. I've never seen painted brick look good.
But the RE agent is experienced in the neighborhood. Do people really care? Does it really matter?
