DC Realtor: 5 Tips on Color Can Help Sell Your Washington DC Home
Your home’s color palette will influence potential buyers – for the best or the worst. DC Realtor, Michelle Buckman, has 5 tips about colors that are more likely to appeal to your buyers.
- Set the tone for your home: the color scheme of your home, from the outside in, should be coordinated so that it sets the right tone for your home.
- Fit in with the neighborhood: your home should fit in with the colors and style of your neighborhood. White is a popular choice, and allows you to help your home stand out a bit, with accent colors on the front door and the trim. Beige with neutral-colored trim is another popular color scheme. Both beige and white are safe exterior colors. They don't turn buyers off.
- Paint or power wash the outside: before you list your home, make sure that you have a fresh coat of paint applied by a professional or pressure wash the exterior to bring back that newly painted look.
- Paint the inside, too: new paint helps showcase the home, and gives it a new-home feel. White or beige is always a safe bet. However, more homeowners are using calming earth-tones and sophisticated grey palettes, with white trim.
- Follow the advice of your DC Realtor: your DC Realtor, Michelle Buckman, has been selling homes for decades. If your DC Realtor advises you to change the color palette of your home, take her advice.
