Selling A Home - Pink is the Most Expensive Color

Do you like pink? 


I lot of people - mostly girls, like pink.  Easter is right around the corner and those little pink Easter dresses are pretty, and what would the Easter Bunny do without his pink ears and nose.  Many flowers are pink. I saw lots of pink tulips last week and the azaleas are just beginning to peek out. In a few weeks, we will see pink everywhere. In fact, the world would definitely be missing something if we didn't have pink.

Pink Kitchen 

I showed a house the other day.  It was a great price for the neighborhood and was a foreclosure.  The house was a 4 Bedroom, gray brick, one level on a nice flat lot. When we walked up to the front door, my client pointed out that the mortar was a dark PINK.  I had NEVER seen pink mortar before.  When we got inside, the walls were a pale (almost white) pink - but paint is an easy thing to change.  We stepped into the kitchen and WOW there was a pink and purple border, a pink and purple faux finished accent wall, pink corian counter tops and a very light pink ceramic tile on the floor.  We didn't go any farther.  The price may have been good, but too much work!!  There is a hefty price tag associated with changing out all the counter tops and flooring in THIS house. Now, thinking back, I wished I had checked out the bathroom....

 pink Tub

I was in a DIFFERENT house and it DID have a PINK cultured marble jetted tub and pink vanities.  The house has been reduced over 50K just to compensate for the pink in the bathroom and is a STEAL.  Someone just needs to really like pink, or deal with ripping out the tub and vanity tops.  That CAN be done,  but most people don't want to do the work.  If YOU would like to tackle this depinking project, let me know 'cause this house is a bargin!!


The moral of the story is this....If you like pink - that is great.  You can even decorate your house with pink paint, accessories, rugs and even furniture.  But DON'T use PINK for anything that would be expensive or difficult to replace - it could cost you THOUSANDS.
