Should I Paint?

Should I Paint?

 Are you planning on selling your home in 2022? Choosing the right paint color can make a big difference. 

Today is all about painting your home to get top dollar. Studies show that painting your home before you put it on the market can be critical to selling it faster, and for more money. No matter what your decor style is, the one thing that holds true when selling your home is, it's not about you. Decluttering your home, removing personal objects, and ensuring your home is painted a light, bright, neutral color throughout, will go a long way to helping sell your home. Let's talk about the best paint colors when selling your house.

Neutral paint colors are far and away the best choice. Why? Because potential buyers want to be able to picture themselves living in that house. They offer a neutral backdrop, so that the potential buyers can visualize their belongings in your home. The past few years, the trends have leaned toward cooler grays. But in 2022, many homeowners are opting for slightly warmer grays, or a greige color- part gray part beige. These warmer, neutral colors keep the walls warm, while still maintaining the light bright feel.

Whites and creams are very popular this year, as well, but be careful. The wrong shade of white can make the home look dingy or sterile. If you want to go with white, make sure to talk to a professional. If your home is an open floor plan, I suggest picking one color for the walls, and one shade of white for the trim. Then, painting the entire space the same color. This creates a unified and cohesive feel, which is important when selling your home. This can also help with keeping the cost down, as you can buy your paint in bulk. As a general rule, the fewer colors the better.

Now, let's talk bathrooms. Bathrooms do well with a soft blue- gray paint, as it invokes a serene spa-like feel. Avoid white here though, bathrooms painted white sell for $4000 less than one painted blue.

Let's talk about the exterior. We are seeing a lot of stark whites and dark charcoals in 2022, and it looks like they are here to stay. Painting the entire exterior however could be expensive, instead you can opt for just painting your front door, The door color that sells homes the best is still black. People love a black door. It works with most styles of homes, and it is safe and classic.

But don't overthink any of this. As long as you pick a light, neutral paint color for the interior that will be bright and inviting to potential homebuyers. They will likely be able to envision their furniture, and their possessions, in your house.
