Picking Paint Colors That Sell Houses
Ask any real estate broker and they will tell you the number one factor that still sells Boise homes is location, location, location. While that still holds true, and probably always will, there's more to it than just that.
Even though paint colors can be changed once a new owner takes possession of the house, they may not be wowed by the house enough in the first place. The psychology of color is a real thing, not to mention the last thing a home buyer wants is a list of tasks to care of once they own the place.
Make wise choices about paint colors and the painting company while you're getting your home ready to list on the market. This will not only help you sell your home, but it will also help you sell it at the asking price and in a much shorter amount of time.
Before You List Your Home Read This
Selling your home is about first impressions. It's also about the prospective buyers being able to envision themselves living in the home and creating memories of their own in this space.
Unfortunately, no matter how nice the home is, the simplest of details can end up being a turn-off. Sadly, this includes just the wrong color for your exterior or interior painting.
- A home that shows sign of wear on the outside is going to take longer to sell. Even if it's in good condition, it gives the impression it's in a state of disrepair and needs to be fixed up. Few homeowners are in the market for a fixer-upper, unless the asking price reflects that.
- For exterior colors, you're going to need something neutral but that also works well with the surroundings. Greige is the perfect combination of grey and beige, as well as the neutral color trend everyone loves. Whatever color you pick for your house painting project, it should work with the landscaping and neighboring homes.
- That also means going neutral inside your home. Too many homeowners pick trendy colors or colors that match their own personality. That isn't going to sell the home because all potential buyers will see is all the things that they are going to need to change about the house. A to-do list does not sell a home.
