A fresh coat of paint is the most inexpensive and fastest way to give your home a “face-lift”. It can make your house look cleaner, newer, brighter, and more appealing to buyers. Since choosing paint colors could prove to be daunting for most, it is not overly difficult. When selling, it is best to pick colors that are calming, pleasing to the eye, and non- offensive to buyers.
99% of home buyers cannot see past an unpleasing paint color. These unsavory or bold color choices are a distraction and can be a big “turn-off” that could make your buyers walk away. This is a common mistake that can be easily avoided with just a trip to your local hardware or paint store.
Here are 5 reasons why neutral colors work when selling your home:
By using neutral colors, buyers can see the walls of your home as a blank canvas on which to paint their own preferences and style.
- By using neutral colors, you are helping your buyers to easily visualize themselves living in your home.
- By using neutral colors, you are helping your buyers to focus on the best attributes of the house.
- Neutral colors can open up the space and can visually expand the size of the rooms.
- Neutral colors are calming, non-offensive, and can easily go with any design theme or furniture your buyers might have.
When we talk of neutrals, the top colors are beige, tan, ecru, and other like-colors. While these are all certainly neutral colors, they aren’t the only shades that fall into this category. Neutral colors are simply those that blend well with others, and don’t overpower a room. There are neutral shades of blue, green, yellow, violet, gray, and virtually any other color.
Stay away from white walls if possible; white walls are dull, distracting, and boring, and they have the tendency to bring attention to any flaws or imperfections that can work against you.
