If you are thinking about selling your home one of the best investments that you can make is a fresh coat of paint. Nickels for dollars paint has the highest return on investment. It’s the one thing that can instantly change the look and feel of a house helping it to sell for more money.
Addvaluetoyourhome.ca came up with a list of the top five colors for 2017. Many of these we have used or have seen in homes on the market. Here are the top 5 Benjamin Moore colors for 2017.
Ablescent Beige
Calming Cream
White Dove
Wickham Grey
Greige—Balboa mist I also love another greige called edgcumb grey
The beige and cream work great with natural woodwork, the grey, greige, and white work well with white trim and woodwork. Another couple of things to consider are what Zillow found in a recent study.
Bathrooms: Homes with off white or eggshell white bathrooms sold on average $4,035 less on average and homes with light powder blue to periwinkle bathrooms sold for $5,440 more on average.
Front Door: Homes with a navy blue to dark gray or charcoal front doors sold for $1,514 more on average. I have seen many accent colors on front doors work. These are the colors they found to help the sale price.
With a small investment in paint and a little elbow grease, you can definitely increase the value or your home!
