Paint Colors to Sell Your Home

Posted on February 16, 2022

If it’s time to sell your home, you want to be as prepared as possible. Nothing goes further in the selling process than a new exterior color. Let the first impression potential buyers see from the road be a pleasant one. Picking a color that is not bland but has wide appeal can be a challenge. Here are our best paint colors as well as some additional tips to sell your home.

The Classic White Walls

neutral interior paint colors

White is without a doubt the most popular color for home sales. Whether it is the kitchen, the living room, or the bedrooms, it is hard to go wrong with white. The blank canvas allows prospective buyers to envision whatever they’d like on the walls. The color also makes spaces look larger than they are, which is admirable for prospective homeowners. Some of our favorite white paint colors include:

The Neutral Tones

Our next paint suggestion for home sales is actually along the same lines. Neutral tones, such as grey and brown, are extremely popular. While you may not want to paint your entire interior walls these paint colors, they are great for accents. Wood is also extremely popular right now and we expect it to be for the next 5-10 years. Sure, these paint colors may be on the boring side, but prospective buyers will love them. Our favorite neutral tones include:

Other Painting Tips

Start with the Exterior

Our first tip for painting to sell is to always start with the exterior. The outside of a home is the first thing buyers notice, both on real estate apps and when driving down the street. Even just a fresh coat of paint on the trim of your home will make your house pop.

Paint in the Right Places

It isn’t always necessary or practical to paint the entire interior of your home. Sometimes, just a few touch ups here and there can get the job done. You’ll really want to focus on high-traffic areas, such as the living room, kitchen, and main floor bathrooms. Of course, if there is any “sore-thumb” paint in your house, such as hockey-team colors, camouflage, etc., you’ll want to deal with these first.
