The Best Interior Paint Colors To Use Before Selling (And Worse)

Paint colors can make a difference when selling. Buyers prefer current, light, and neutral walls. It is what buyers are looking for. Current wall colors are especially important for photos. Neutral wall colors not only look better but also provide potential buyers with a blank slate. They can envision their furniture, artwork, photography with neutral walls.

Neutral walls also appeal to the masses. When selling you do want your photos to stand out and neutral walls are a nice backdrop to make the property much more appealing. It is the least expensive investment for the greatest return.

Paint colors that you should never leave on your walls include yellow, red and orange. Stagers, designers, and the brilliant duo Property Brothers -Jonathan and Scott- recommend never using these paint colors on interior walls when selling. Yellow, orange and red are a hard sell. They look dated. They are not what buyers want. A sellers equity may be at stake and the property may sit.
