Ok… so this is NOT a blog on behalf of the Swiss Visitor & Convention Bureau.
It is a blog with another basic staging tip about color of and in a house
Q: What is the RIGHT color to use in a home that is on the market… most notably for paint and carpet?
A: NEUTRAL COLORS trump all others. WHY? Because they are non-offensive and are... well neutral. And just because it is a neutral color does NOT equate to it being BORING.
If you have an owner that is reluctant to paint back to a neutral… You might want to make these points.
1.Most landlords who EVEN ALLOW a tenant to re-paint a rental then REQUIRES the rented property be painted BACK to a neutral (usually white) upon leaving… or forgo the security deposit. WHY do landlords do this? Well they KNOW the unit will be easier to rent AGAIN.
2.Spec homes are full of neutral elements. Wall colors, wall and floor tile, carpeting, and plumbing fixtures. WHY? Because builders and developers know they can SELL properties easier that incorporate these colors.
I could go on… but those are two examples that might help you make your point to your sellers.
