According to Zillow analysis, listings with cool, neutral wall colors sell for more money. Homes with rooms painted in shades of light blue or pale blue/gray can sell for as much as $5,440 more than expected, according to their report.

Zillow’s 2017 Paint Color Analysis looked at more than 32,000 photos from sold homes around the country to see how certain paint colors impacted their sale price on average, when compared to similar homes with white walls.

 

See below for the full results of the 2017 Paint Color Analysis.

“Greige” home exteriors

A home’s exterior color may also have an impact on its sale price. Homes painted in “greige,” a mix of light gray and beige, sold for $3,496 more than similar homes painted in a medium brown or with tan stucco.

Navy blue front doors

For a pop of color, homes with front doors painted in shades of dark navy blue to slate gray sold for $1,514 more.

Walls painted in cool neutrals like blue or gray have a broader appeal. Homes with darker, more style-specific walls like terracotta rooms sold for $2,031 less than expected. However, a lack of color may have the biggest negative impact as homes with white bathrooms sold for an average of $4,035 below similar homes. Zillow’s full report can be found here.

If there is one site that carry's no weight with me it is zillow.

They are not a professional real estate sight, just a site that takes your listings, gets people to sign up with them and then sells that person to you for a huge some.
