We’ve all heard that it is the kitchens and the bathrooms that sell a home. For the most part, that is true. However, there are many other factors that play into the ability to sell a house and the value that a shopper will place on it. Whether or not a kitchen remodel is needed varies from home to home. One of the biggest waste of money and effort (IMHO) is when new granite is installed on top of outdated cabinets. Have you heard the phrase, “putting lipstick on a pig?” So, before you run out and start making changes, let’s look at 10 ways to increase your home’s value that makes sense.
A few weeks ago, I posted an article on which paint colors would increase your home’s sale price (at least for 2017). However, several of you were very interested in knowing which colors should be avoided – i.e the worst paint choices. Well, I prefer to only write positive articles. So, it took a little bit of considering, but I did finally decide to go forward with writing this up. Just keep in mind, as you read this, that this is purely a statistical analysis. It is, by no means, intended to suggest that these colors are ugly.
Color is very subjective, and in the right design, any color can be beautiful. However, we must start somewhere. Therefore, I would say that you should avoid these paint colors when selling your home.
Getting a house ready to put on the market can be stressful. What with all of the cleaning and organizing that needs to be done to get things ready, who has time to think of doing anything else. But, you really should. It need not be an intensive renovation project, but you may want to consider painting. A fresh coat of paint makes a room fell fresh and new, and with the right colors, you can see a higher return. According to Zillow‘s 2017 Color Analysis, you can increase your home’s sale price with these paint colors.
