It is a snap to paint your home to sell at a higher price. Are there best paint colors to use? If you look online for recommendations to get a house ready for sale, experts want to be a tiger about how important paint is to selling your home. Experts say paint the front door and then move inside and paint all surfaces painted in the past. Few mention what color of paint, just that painting makes everything look clean and fresh.
The upshot? Color, like the splash of a belly flop, makes a big impact on buyers and can serve as a “powerful tool” for attracting prospective bidders, according to Zillow chief economist Svenja Gudell. “But trends may change over time, which is why it’s worthwhile to consider what tints are most favorable with would-be buyers. Last year, yellow was a popular choice for kitchens, but another shade has taken its place in Zillow’s 2017 survey.”
“Desirable colors “help future buyers envision themselves living in the space,” Gudrell said in a statement.”
At the same time, Zillow warned certain colors, like double-bubble on your shoe’s bottom, can turn off buyers, especially darker colors. We have friends who painted their living room a dark purple. It is unique, but the average buyer would be put off by that color. Maybe even rejecting the house because of it.
Then there is the outside color for the house. Fortunately, many paint companies have equipment that will let you look digitally and apply different paint shades. To check out our house upload your photos. Sherwin-Williams’ (SHW) or Glidden’s (PPG) have paint visualization websites.
Maybe, you don’t like the neutral colors discussed here. You might think them boring. But remember, once you put the house up for sale, you divorce yourself from it. You want what is most pleasing to a new owner so they can imagine themselves living there.
