Want To Sell Your Home? Consider Neutral Paint Colors
When planning to sell your home, real estate experts agree that painting your home in a neutral color will increase its curb appeal, help attract more buyers, and may even increase its selling price. Although we’re in a hot real estate market here in the Gilbert and Phoenix area, sellers are still competing with thousands of homes on the market.
Today’s savvy buyers prefer homes that are in move-in-ready condition. Therefore, if your exterior or interior paint is faded, outdated, or chipping, your home may linger on the market, which may ultimately decrease its selling price. So now that you’re ready to paint your house let’s look at the best neutral paint colors to help sell your home.
White is the ultimate neutral color choice because it pairs with any color, flooring, and furnishings in the home. It’s also a classy exterior color choice. On the inside, it makes rooms look larger and brighter with a clean, elegant appearance. To avoid making your interior space look sterile, explore different shades of white like Benjamin Moore’s White Diamond or Behr’s Snow Fall. You can also add a splash of color by incorporating gray and beige or black and gray in your palette.
Greige is the new gray and is currently the hottest paint color on the market. The cool gray hues are blended with warm beige tones in varying shades and blends. The neutral paint color pairs with virtually any color, flooring, and furnishings making it an excellent interior and exterior paint color.

When painting your home’s interior to sell, an accent wall can have a dramatic impact appealing to buyers as long as you stick to neutral colors. It’s an excellent way to introduce a coordinating paint color to your interior or exterior palette. For example, if you’re painting your living room in a light shade of gray, painting an accent wall in a darker shade is bold and exciting but not overwhelming. You can choose any wall for the accent, but those with an architectural feature or other focal point work best. Finally, you don’t have to limit accent walls to interior spaces. Exterior accent walls are just as impressive.
