… Okay, not literally, but you know what I mean. Everyone knows that a fresh paint job can make a huge difference in the appearance of the interior or exterior of a home. It’s pretty common for seller’s to touch-up the walls or even completely re-paint prior to listing their property. If you look around online for tips to help sell a home quickly, it won’t take very long before you find a list with the word “paint” somewhere near the top.
The other day while looking a paint trends I stumbled across a super interesting paint analysis by Zillow. They looked at 32,000 homes across the country that sold in 2017, searching for any possible trends in wall color and an increase sales price. The results of their findings are intriguing, but admittedly not too surprising. Blues, greys, taupes/oatmeals, and “greige” are subliminally catching buyers’ attention and ultimately their pocketbooks, too.
This color scheme has been popular for a while now. If you look at pictures of some of NorCal Home’s past projects, you’ll see that we’ve been a fan of it for quite some time – and we still are. We receive regular positive feedback on the interior wall color of our homes, with a fair number of people asking what the name/brand is so they can paint their own houses the same color!
I know, I know! You want to see the good stuff… THE RESULTS! Below is a breakdown of Zillow’s findings. Check out that bathroom price bump – JEEZ LOUISE!
