Paint colors that will help you sell your house faster

Color is a very personal choice, and everyone has different tastes. We use light, neutral tones in our projects because not only do they help make spaces appear large and open, they also make it easy for buyers to imagine their belongings blending into the space. Furthermore, light neutral trends are least likely to be offensive, and are very on-trend in home design.

Our team has found that applying a fresh coat of the following colors can help you sell your home much faster—and for more.

Agreeable Gray

These colors are delicate and unobtrusive, allowing potential buyers to focus on the house without being distracted. How should you determine which of these colors to use? We’ll help you out during our pre-sale renovation process, but you should also keep these two tips in mind:

  • Consider the permanent fixtures – Unless they are also going to be updated, consider the existing floors, tile, and finishes (i.e. doorknobs, faucets, etc.) when selecting the best paint color to sell your house.
  • Don’t ignore lighting – The shade you select may look different depending on whether it is being lit by sunlight, florescent bulbs, or incandescent lighting.

We used Agreeable Gray in a recent project in Northern Virginia. This color makes rooms feel cool and contemporary, without seeming too trendy.

We often use Penthouse in basement remodels like the one we recently completed that you can see here. This color helps make the space feel as big and bright as possible.
