Staging Tips – Paint Colors That Sell

Paint Colors that Sell.

Did you know that using certain paint colors in specific rooms of your home can statistically increase the value by as much as $10,000? Sounds incredible, but it’s been proven true. According to an exhaustive study done by Zillow, they looked at more than 32,000 photos from sold homes around the country. They compared how certain paint colors impacted the sale price on average, when compared to homes with white walls.

Homes with Blue Bathrooms sell for $5,400 more than expected. Listings with cool, neutral colors sell for more money and homes with white, yellow or red wall colors can sell for less than expected.

Paint Colors that Sell: Blue Bathrooms, found in hues of powder blue or light periwinkle, sold for the highest sales premium of all colors analyzed. Walls painted in other cool, natural tones like pale gray or oatmeal were also among the top performing listings.

Blue Bathroom

They found that some colors may actually deter buyers; the darker more style specific wall colors such as terracotta Dining Room walls sold for $2,000 less than expected.

However, a lack of color may have the biggest negative impact. Homes with white bathrooms sold for an average of $4,000 less than similar homes.

Paint Colors that Sell: Oatmeal, pale taupe or light beige did better in the Living Room, selling for about $1,900 more than expected.

Greige Living Room Walls

Paint Colors that Sell: The exterior color that garnered the best price premium was
“Greige”, a combination of gray and beige with the front door painted in a contrast color such as dark Gray, Navy Blue or Black.
