Your home is your biggest investment, so it makes sense to want to make savvy color choices that will enhance the property value overall. That means every choice you make can help, or hurt, that worth. While this is even more important when you are planning on listing your home for sale, you should always want to maximize the value of your home.
So how does color play a factor in the worth of your home? Can’t you just pick your favorite color, when you schedule your house painting? Here is some of what our experienced Riverview house painters think you should know:
Currently, greige is most popular exterior color, especially for listing a house for sale. In fact, this neutral hue can increase the value by approximately $1,500. Bear in mind, brown can have the opposite effect and can decrease the value by up to $2,000.
Oatmeal is another popular exterior painting choice. While it may not increase the value as much as greige, it is a close second.
So what about the bathroom? Believe it or not, popular colors are light blue to periwinkle. The least popular choice is white, which can decrease the value of your home by as much as $4,000.
Living rooms do well with neutral hues, including oatmeal, but also taupe and beige. Stay away from grey or silver, as well as the colors that are actually popular for the lavatory.
Yellow may have worked in the kitchen in the 70s, or even part of the 80s, but not any longer. If you want to avoid lowering your home’s value steer clear of yellow and consider light blue.
If you are set on pink or rose for your bedroom, the value of the house will only decline by around $200. However, if you want to focus on increasing the value, cerulean to cadet blue can add over $1,800.
