Using neutral paint colors to your advantage when selling a house is not something that should be overlooked. It can make a huge difference!
For example, did you know that color can be used to make a room feel larger? Dark colors feel close to you, while light colors feel farther away. By strategically painting the walls of a room with lighter and darker tones of the same color, you can open up a room and create a light, airy impression.
Paint colors can also be used to highlight the architectural features of a home. Painting every wall the same color can make a home’s architecture look flat, which can be unappealing. What you should do instead is use different shades of a neutral color to emphasize the architectural beauty of the home.
This technique is also effective in homes without a lot of architectural details. Paint can be used to create the illusion of architectural interest and turn a boring home into one that’s more appealing to buyers.
Realtors: Let Us Meet with Your Clients to Talk About Paint Color Ideas Before They Paint!
We’ve worked with a lot of real estate agents in our years as professional home painters in San Diego. Some of them have their favorite “go-to” paint color that they recommend to their clients, and in general, the colors recommended by real estate agents are good. Real estate agents have seen a lot of homes and talked with a lot of buyers. They know what colors have the broadest appeal and what colors are a turn-off.
Of course, we’re always happy to paint a house using the color recommended by a real estate agent or chosen by a homeowner, but if you’re a real estate agent looking for that extra “edge” to sell a listing in a competitive market, consider letting us help your clients (and you!) by creatively using lighter and darker neutrals in a way that will evoke an instant emotional response from potential buyers.
Our San Diego residential painting company has color consultants on staff that can meet with real estate agents and home sellers and offer suggestions for ways to use paint to help a home stand out from comparable homes on the market. If you’re planning on having the home painted anyway, why not take advantage of this free consultation and put your home in a position to sell more quickly and/or get multiple offers?
A fresh coat of neutral paint can do wonders for the interior of a home. But using colors that complement and enhance a home’s architecture can be a deal maker!
Contact us at PaintGreen to set up your free, in-home consultation, where we can offer color suggestions, as well as give you an estimate to have your home painted by our team of professional home painters. We look forward to hearing from you and helping you get on your way to receiving top dollar for your San Diego home!
