Colors That Can Boosts The Value Of Your Home

Property Manager

Do you know that paint has a greater impact on buyers and can serve as a powerful tool for attracting prospective bidders? Home sellers are advised to paint your home before listing their properties. But trends may change over time which is why it's worthwhile to consider what tints are most favorable with would-be buyers. Desirable colors help future buyers envision themselves living in the space. To check out how your home might look with a new color, some paint companies offer digital tools that can upload your photos and apply different paint shades to the rooms.



Even front doors make an impression on prospective buyers.


Blue is now the most appetizing color for kitchens.




Prospective buyers are attracted to light beige, pale taupe or oatmeal living rooms.




Blue is thought to be a calming color, which may explain why buyers prefer bedrooms painted in these cool shades.



Navy blue is also popular in dining rooms that incorporate white color.



The biggest bang for your buck will be in the bathroom, where picking blue or purple hues will pay off.


While certain hues can enhance a home's value, some colors can also have a negative impact on prospective buyers. Those are the colors demanding your attention and you have the power to decide how to use them to your advantage. What do you think?

Trends DO change. I prefer warm colors throughout my home. As I look around my home office, deep blue may not have been the best choice but I love it! Most people have shifted to gray paint but I personal like rich vibrant color.

Consider paint as liquid equity! It's the best bang for your buck when preparing your home for sale!

Hi James... colors are very personal and I've found that the more neutral a home is when selling, the easier it goes.

The colors in your photographs look so soothing and clean! If all one can do to make an improvement is paint, than that is something doable and should make prospective buyers attracted to the fresh clean look.
