Picking Your Color
Choosing the proper paint colors when preparing your house for the market can have a large impact on your potential ROI. It will invigorate the right buyer with a sense of warmth providing that home sweet home feeling they are looking for as soon as they step in the door. The color of your walls will set the tone, pun intended, allowing the potential home buyers imagination to run wild, thus helping them envision their future.
Where To Start
The first thing you should do even before deciding on any repairs to your home whether that be landscaping, intensive cleaning projects, the replacement of carpet and furnishings, or choosing the right paint color for interior walls is figuring out whether painting your house will bring a positive return on investment (ROI). Ideally, you want the return you receive from the whole project to be greater than the cost of the painting project itself. Otherwise, it won't make sense to make the effort going through the process, finding the colors you like and finding the right professional painting contractor for the job.
With that being said repainting the interior of your home is one of the most common ways to boost your home's value receiving great bang for your buck. This helps you land a buyer sooner than later so you don't have to go through the pain of your house sitting on the market while you're already packed ready to move to your next humble abode.
Paint Colors That Sell Your House Faster
Starting with the kitchen, try to avoid colors that will give you a headache if you look at them for too long. I know most of us have seen DIY projects all over the web with colors that seem to pop out of the picture. Now while they attract eyes and likes new buyers are more likely to go for something a bit more subtle. Zillow reported that using grayish-blues when painting your kitchen walls is having the greatest positive impact on prospective sellers. Moral of the story, avoid colors that make your eyes hurt, more pop isn't always better.
Next stop is the bathroom. Blue is not only for your kitchen, but it will also have a positive effect on your bathroom as well! According to Zillow, homes that have chosen to feature light blue colors have sold for approximately almost $1900 more than their counterparts that chose otherwise. If you can get that much bang for your buck for a simple paint job the hassle is worth it.
Moving on to the bedroom, the best color(s) that gives you the greatest potential return are matte cerulean colors. The calming cool colors give the effect of relaxation as well as a potential boost of 1900 dollars according to Zillow. A good idea when choosing these colors for your house is pairing them with white or cream baseboards and crown molding for a more modern, clean look that is sure to catch potential buyers eyes.
The last stop will be the bedroom. Majority of the time it is best to have a neutral color in bedrooms allowing future buyers to use their imagination. The bedroom is no exception in this case. According to Zillow, if you have a bedroom that is painted pink or colors similar to that exotic spectrum you have a high likelihood of your house selling for 210 dollars less than average. While that may not seem like a lot of money it's better to air on the side of caution and get rid of that alarmingly bright spectrum.
