Getting your home ready to put on the market can require a lot more than a deep clean and reorganizing some furniture. Depending on the state of your home, it could need a fresh coat of paint in a bedroom or a complete overhaul of your kitchen. But before you start ripping out kitchen cabinets, there are other ways you create a more appealing look and keep costs down. Colors play an important role in real estate home staging, and knowing the different ways to use them can get you that “SOLD” sticker on your “For Sale” sign a lot sooner.
Prepare a Real Estate Home Staging Color Plan
Selling your home requires a plan of action that involves property marketing and staging. This plan also applies to the color scheme you intend to go with. When getting your home ready for market, it’s a good idea to take stock of the predominant colors in your home. Consider whether or not you can work with your current colors, or if big changes need to be made. If you decide on the latter, refer to a color palette to find the combinations that will best bring out the beauty of your home.
Choose Colors That Ooze Personality
Believe it or not, it was once very common for someone selling their home to paint the walls white. The idea behind this was to present a blank canvas to prospective buyers and allow them to visualize their ideal concept of the colors they’d prefer. But times have changed, and so have the expectations of sellers and buyers. Nowadays, the residential Utah real estate properties that sell above asking are the ones with color schemes that enhance the interior and complement the furniture. Choosing the right colors to paint your home is a valuable tool that can get your home sold faster and possibly add a few more dollars to your sale price.
No Color Clutter Allowed
The term “color clutter” refers to an item that simply does not mesh with the overall color scheme of your home. When trying to sell a home, remember that each room should tell buyers a harmonic story that flows nicely. A living room with earth tone walls and carpets should not contain a turquoise loveseat. It draws attention away from the spirit of the home and is just plain tacky. Don’t be afraid to ask a friend and get a second opinion about items and colors that are outdated or unappealing. These subtle changes will make a huge difference in the overall appearance of your home – and are very cost-effective.
