When it comes time to sell your home, one of the most important things you can do to impress buyers is freshen up the paint in your home. The new paint helps showcase the home and gives it a new-home feel. Because color can be very personal and choosing a color palette which will appeal to your potential buyers is tricky, here are a few things to consider:

Neutral Colors
Earth tones and neutral shades such as soft greens, grays, and tans are warm, inviting, and evoke an atmosphere of relaxation. Rooms with a lot of glass, wood, stone, or metal are especially complemented by earth tones of green, brown, orange, and blue. Coffee is a popular earth tone which goes beautifully with hardwood floors. Browns can also add warmth to small spaces. Gray has emerged as a highly popular neutral shade with urban sophistication. You can also never go wrong with white. It evokes a clean space and helps potential buyers imagine their own stuff there.

Bright and Dark Colors
For many potential buyers, strong colors evoke strong reactions in people and is therefore a major consideration when selling your home. Colors to avoid should include pink, dark/lime green and purple. You want to avoid a dark, closed-in feeling.
