In the game of selling homes, Paint color is more important than most homeowners could ever imagine. Starting with the psychology behind wall colors, and the emotions potential buyers feel, all the way to the increase in financial return for freshly painted walls, the right paint selection should never be overlooked as a key factor in each home!
“I picked this color because I thought it would be Neutral.”
Your agent advised you to paint your home a neutral shade before listing it? That’s great advice, however, you picked out this unappetizing shade of peanut butter (Thanks for that description Kristie Barnett!), and painted every wall in your home?? Unfortunately, this scenario happens far too often.
99% of people will scroll straight past the online images of your home, and onto the next listing. If you’re fortunate enough to schedule a showing, they are most likely to turn around and walk out. Most buyers are willing to pay more for a property that appears move-in ready, and since walls account for the largest surfaces in your home, the right wall color makes the entire home appear “finished”.
Let’s chat: Is Paint really THAT big of a Deal?
We know what you’re thinking….
“It’s just paint, the next owners can choose whatever color they would like when they buy it.”
“I’ll just google the most popular paint colors and paint a few walls.”
“My house has other good features once someone sees it, they’ll realize the wall colors can be overlooked.”
Here’s What We Know…
Over 60% of the first impression of your home, is based on wall color alone! We all know what they say about first impressions, you only get ONE! As far as your home’s other good features, it’s not likely potential buyers will ever make it far enough to see the good in your house. The market has always shown, buyers are looking for neutral, freshly painted walls.
Lastly, a quick google search of the most popular neutral colors to paint your home, is still a gamble, and here’s why, the permanent fixtures in your home have certain undertones, and contrary to popular belief, not all colors considered “neutral” will complement the design and structure of your home. The good news is, as your home stagers, we also offer paint consultations, unlike anything you’ve seen before.
