Does Color Really Matter When Selling a Home

Share this Page!

Do you paint those walls or leave them as they are when selling a house? It’s always a good idea in prepping your home to sell that the walls get painted and with a neutral color tone through out the home.

These deep eggplant walls won’t give buyers any room in their mind to envision how they can call this bedroom their own. With a neutral wall color and updated bedding this bedroom becomes a sanctuary and inviting place to sleep.

If you take the time to prep a little before putting your home on the market it will save you money in the long run. From having the house sit on the market longer than necessary, requests to drop the price to meet the buyer’s needs (because they’ll need to paint and fix those neglected areas, etc) and the impression that the room looks smaller than it actually is (with dark walls). With a little change this room was staged, as was the house, and able to accommodate a king-size bed, nightstands, and a private sitting area.

As they say a little work on the front end, pays off in the long run. To see more images of staged homes that are move-in ready, my gallery.
