Color me Staged!

Home Stager with Decorate To Sell - Merrimack Valley Real Estate Staging

Color is amazng.  In real estate especially!  Statistics tell us that yellow houses sell faster than other houses!    

  • Are you prepared to discuss color with your homeowners and Realtors?
  • What do you say when Realtors ask you about color?
  • Do you have color chips available for their selection?
  • Do you dismiss any questions regarding color?
  • Is color the differentiator for the house you are currently staging?
  • Is color a business differentiator for you and your Staging business?
  • Have you added color consultations to your staging business yet?

 Real estate - the business that is dominated by statistics, interest rates, cma's, credit scores, multi-million dollar producers!  But what sells the house?  Emotion!

And color gets those emotions moving at breakneck speed!  The buyer falls in love!  In a business filled with statistics and banking and mortgage - emotion sells the house!

And, of course, if 2 yellow houses are for sale on the same street, the yellow house that is Staged will sell the fastest!  Color me Staged!

I totally agree with you on Color, Margaret. It can make a home look inviting and warm or cold and unfeeling.  Color has alot of impact, inside and out. Thanks for sharing that!

Great advice, thanks!  I also wanted to add that the color yellow is the color our eyes see grabs your attention.  but be careful in the shade of yellow being used!!!!


For curb appeal- if painting the exterior of a house yellow is out of the question, have plenty of yellow flowers to grab attention:)

for a great shade of yellow try Benjamin Moore's Antique Lace...I love it and use it just about all the time. It is creamy, soft and RICH looking

Thanks for the post.  I didn't know that about the color yellow.  I think I'll use it next week at my staging.
