Potential property buyers look for many things in real estate, like new windows, attracive exteriors and comfortable living spaces. As a homeowner who’s planning to sell your property soon, you want your house to stand out in the listing, and boost your potential sale value. As the saying goes, a first impression can last a lifetime, and that also applies to a house. And the best way to leave a strong first impression is to appeal to buyers’ visual senses by having a well-painted interior and exterior. How do paint and color affect your property’s appeal? What should you keep in mind? Trusted window installers from Austin Pro Siding, Windows & Roofing help you choose paint for your soon-to-be-sold property!
The general theme and color of a house leave a strong psychological effect on a guest and a potential buyer. If they see a specific color that seems off or a palette that doesn’t strike their fancy, it immediately lowers the rating of your property in their eyes and minds. Just like when buying their preferred apparel, buyers remember products that have designs and colors that leave impressions on them and those that don’t conform to what they deem is fashionable or desirable end up being classified with adjectives and descriptions like “so-so” or “awkward-looking.” So to immediately sell your house, an impressionable color palette that conforms to modern standards is a major factor to consider.
Exterior: Striking and Inviting
Getting a perfect balance between eye-catching and not intimidating is quite difficult for exterior painting. But in this case, there are tried and true color palettes that exude a warm and homely feeling to onlookers and guests. If you’re planning on immediately selling your house, choosing one of the following color schemes for your property’s exterior can easily attract potential buyers:
Red and brick color schemes give your property a classy and traditional feel. This is perfect for properties that are in areas filled with many trees and greenery.
Brown and earthy color schemes are a solid choice since brown itself is a neutral color that can easily match with most colors.
Shades of white like wheat or smoke are highly adjustable color schemes for your exterior and give your home a prim and proper vibe.
Blue and gray color schemes are perfect choices for any home, as they induce a calming and serene feeling when viewed from afar.
Interior: Keep It Neutral
As there are a multitude of types of property buyers, catering to every specific color preference is impossible. In this case, properties with neutral colors like beige, ivory, taupe, gray and white are definitely a solid choice in interior color and paint. These colors can easily match with other palettes and conform to most types of modern architectural designs. There are also undertones to neutral interior colors, such as:
Warm Undertones, which are usually from a base of red, yellow or orange. These colors produce an interior with an inviting, cozy and upbeat feeling.
Cool Undertones, which are usually from a base of blue, green or purple. These colors exude a calming, serene, and soothing vibe within interior spaces.
