Color Analysis – What Works Best For Selling Your Home?

Getting ready to list that Park City home of yours on the market, but need to start prepping? One of the most important tasks is addressing the need for updating the look with house painting – inside and out.

Simply put, it is one of the easiest and thriftiest methods to use to improve the look, without spending much. In other words, this is a great way to attract interest, find buyers and get a positive Return on Investment, or ROI.

Colors, Shades & More – Painting Your Home to Sell

Be it house painting or interior painting, you want to make good choices about the colors. The right colors can sell your home in record time, while the wrong ones can end up slamming on the brakes for otherwise potentially interested buyers. Here are some helpful tips to get you through the process:

Lighter shades tend to make the space look larger and more cohesive. When you opt for neutral shades, it also helps potential buyers envision their stuff, and themselves, in this space. Neutral can make it easier for a professional if you are staging the house, as well.

The idea is to select colors that will appeal to a larger variety of people. Getting too specific and into a niche ends up leaving out too wide a market. You may have more unique taste, but you are trying to attract the home buying majority.

By neutral though, that does not mean white. In fact, white is something that you should avoid because it reads ad cold, sterile, uninviting and dull. Adding even a tinge of a shade of color can make all the difference. The only real exception is in uber modern homes using stark black white and gray.

Oddly enough, that also means opting for cooler tones over warmer ones. Cool shades do better than warmer ones, like beige.

Of course, the same color does not work in all spaces. For instance gray is the most popular neutral tone to use but only works in certain rooms. So, you have the option of colors like blue with a gray undertone. Gray, soft blues and greige (the combo of beige and gray) work well in bathrooms, bedrooms and kitchens.

Of course, make sure the colors you are considering work with the components already in place, such as flooring. Think about how you would like a home you were looking at and considering buying to look, and create that for others.
