According to Business Insider, the paint you choose for your home greatly influences the value of your property:
A new report by Zillow looked at 135,000 photos from old houses across the country to see how paint colors impact sales. They found that homes with charcoal, smoky, or jet black doors sell for $6,271 more than expected. Considering that a door paint job can cost approximately $100 to $400, a bucket of black paint is a stellar investment.
In their study, Zillow also found that tuxedo kitchens—where the upper and lower cabinets are two different colors—sell for more money too. Here are 15 more tricks to help you sell for home faster and at a higher price.
As for the rest of your house, cool and neutral wall colors are a big hit with buyers overall. Light blue bathrooms and taupe-colored living rooms were especially popular in homes that sold for more money. Meanwhile, homes with dark red- or brown-colored walls sold for as much as $2,310 less than expected. (Don’t miss these 31 home improvements that can double the value of your home.)
For home exteriors, houses painted a creamy, bright yellow sold for $3,408 less than other homes. Just keep in mind that painting the outside of your house can be an expensive job, ranging from $1,000 to north of $6,000, depending on the size of the house and the materials used.
New paint can only go so far whenever the application is messy! Many different factors can lead to a sloppy finished paint job, such as:
Imperfections under the paint
Humid and unventilated spaces
