If you’re considering putting your house for sale it’s time to look at your wall paint colors and decide if it’s time for an update. Not all buyers can visualize a space different from its current state, and a major deterrent could be paint color. Even though we know you can simply paint over the walls if the color isn’t your taste, buyers start adding up the costs and time in their mind to make those changes. Save them the trouble by giving your home’s wall colors a fresh, neutral update. It’s important to choose paint colors that appeal to the widest range of buyers so you can sell your home faster, and for MORE money!
We’ve rounded up our top 5 wall paint colors we know buyers will love when they walk in the door. But don’t just take our word for it, these paint colors are also favorites of HGTV’s star cast members.
#1- Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore
Reserve Pewter is an all time favorite of HGTV’s Flip or Flop Christina El Moussa. According to the show’s star “We use this in 90 percent of our flips –– for every room. It makes furniture look great, and buyers love it.”. How could you go wrong here!?
#2- Extra White by Sherwin Williams
White is so in right now- seems like everywhere you look homeowners are wanting bright, white and clean! This shade of white, Extra White by Sherwin Williams, was chosen by Anthony Carrino from America’s Most Desperate Kitchens. Anthony says “My pick for a totally no-fail white. It’s crisp with gray undertones, so it doesn’t look at all harsh.”
#3- Silver Strand by Sherwin Williams
Are you way to bored by neutrals and want to add just a little touch of color and depth to the space? Who better to trust with this color choice than Fixer Upper’s Joanna Gaines. One of her go-to wall paint colors for the entire home, Silver Strand, adds that subtle touch of soft green without being overpowering.
#4- Repose Gray by Sherwin Williams
And just because we love and trust Fixer Upper’s Joanna Gaines so much, we chose another one of her go-to colors, Repose Gray. While it is similar to our #1 pick, Reserve Pewter, it is a lighter color and gives buyers that bright feeling without being totally white.
#5- Green Smoke by Farrow & Ball
We’re stepping outside the lines just a bit on this color choice, but to add a little fun pop of color that will make your home feel unique we chose Green Smoke, a favorite of designer Emily Henderson. According to Emily, “I love this green because it is totally timeless yet still appropriate for something old world and classic. Using it on the island of my kitchen gives the room a fun expected hit of color while still keeping it traditional and allowing it to blend with the style of the home.”
Make sure you’re choosing the right colors so you can sell your Atlanta home for top dollar.
