The Power of Color

Color is the easiest, most cost-effective, and most dramatic way to instantly change the look of your home.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve taken a buyer to see a home with the perfect floor plan, the best upgrades, location, and price BUT they just couldn’t get over the orange paint!

  • As sellers it’s important to remember that color has a huge impact on buyers, and not every buyer is going to share your unique taste.  Try to look at your home with a fresh pair of eyes, and decide for yourself if it might be time to refresh the paint.
  • As buyers it’s important to remember that a can of paint and an afternoon is all that stands between you and that orange wall!  Many times a home will stay on the market because other, less imaginative buyers passed on it based on the power of color.  This may mean that the perfect home might come with the perfect price tag.
  • And as homeowners it’s important to remember that our house is our home!  If there’s something not right about how you feel when relaxing in your living room, do something about it!  As is the case with the buyers, you need to remember that a can of paint and some elbow grease is a great combination to completely change the tone of your space.  Don’t worry about appealing to the masses.  When it’s time to sell your home, it’s easy enough to tone it down to a more neutral color scheme if needed.
