We all know that paint colors can make a big difference. However, there are some paint colors that, when added to the right spot might surprise you with the amount they can actually raise your sale price.
Door Color: The typical Red door may not be as stylish anymore as you think. Sales hint that black doors may actually raise your home sale price by 2.9%
Living Room Color: You might think that white would be the big booster, however, research shows that a room painted with pink or tan undertones (Pinkish Taupe according to Zillow) could actually boost your home sale by 1.3% more than any other color.
Bathroom Color: Periwinkle blue is your magic color for the bathroom. This one will also raise your home price by 1.3%
Kitchen Color: This one may truly come as a surprise. A “tuxedo” kitchen – in other words dark colored cabinets and island with light wall colors could make an average of $1,547 difference in sales price. On the other side of the coin, the big no-no, despite what you may have heard is Brick or Barn Red. This color in the kitchen may cause the price to dip by $2,310.
If you are selling in Dallas-Fort Worth area, the following bedroom color could dramatically increase your home price. In fact, experts say that Khaki in the bedroom in these sister cities could push your sales price up by almost 10% (9.6 to be exact).
Selling in San Francisco? You may want to paint your living room Burnt Orange. This alone can boost your sales price by 5.2%.
In Tampa on the other hand, you may want to go a little more subtle. Painting your dining room a Greige (Gray + Beige) can kick up the sales price by a whooping 11.8%
Lastly, if you are selling in Portland, a kitchen painted blue can boost the sales price by about 6.8%.
Of course, you may not love these colors, but remember, you won’t be living here for much longer and the rise in sales price might just make it worth dealing with for a short period of time, and of course, you can paint your new home with whatever colors suit your whimsy.
