Are you planning to sell your home in the new year? A lick of paint may be in order to boost the appeal of your home to potential buyers.

Out with The Old

Experienced house painting services have seen many a décor fashion come and go. Some had “oh no!” written all over them from the get-go; others we embraced enthusiastically at the time. Either way, features that date your home also lower the resale value.

House being painted

Instead of settling for a lower house price, why not remove the offending finishes such as the popcorn ceilings and unfashionable wallpaper. Rather, replace them with a modern alternative.

In with The New

A fascinating study was recently done by a leading national real estate agency analyzing over 32,000 listing photos of homes sold across the US. Here are some fun facts about which colors performed the best:

  • “Kitchens painted light blue to soft grey-blue: home sold for $1,809 more on average.
  • Bathrooms painted light powder blue to periwinkle: home sold for $5,440 more on average.
  • Bedrooms painted light cerulean blue to cadet blue: home sold for $1,856 more on average.
  • Dining rooms painted slate blue to pale grey-blue; navy blue also found in dining rooms with white shiplap: home sold for $1,926 more on average.
  • Living rooms painted light beige, pale taupe, oatmeal: home sold for $1,809 more on average.
  • House exteriors painted greige - a mix of grey and beige: home sold for $1,526 more on average.
  • Front doors painted navy blue to dark grey or charcoal: home sold for $1,514 more on average.”
