PAINT COLOR CAN GET YOU A HIGHER SALES PRICE !
It can be difficult to decide what to update and remodel if your thinking of selling. While kitchens and bathrooms have typically been prioritized for their return on investment, the style in which you revamp your home can have a huge effect on its salability. One factor you may not have considered can have more of an impact than you think, and that's paint color.
Which paint colors will get you the most bank for your buck? Analyst examined over 135,000 photos from homes sold across the U. S. to see how sale prices compared for homes with color versus homes with white walls. The results varied depending on room type.
Homes that feature charcoal gray or back doors typically sell for $6271 more than expected. Low on the list for exterior paint colors? Yellow. Homes in this color reportedly sell for $3,408 less than expected.
Houses with kitchens that have a different color for the upper and lower cabinets, known as tuxedo cabinets, sell at a $1547 premium. The most popular color combination? Dark, Navy Blue or Black kitchen islands with white cabinets. In dining rooms, however, homes that feature oat brown to medium sandy brown walls and with yellow undertones, typically sell for $1684 less than expected.
As for bathroms. .. . .light blue or periwinkle blue paint, specifically with a gray-blue tint, increases the average selling price of a home by $2,786.
For a seller, painting a front door is one of the least expensive home prep prospects, but also one that can have a powerful impact on a home's sale price.
