The Color to Paint Your House Before Selling

It’s always a smart idea to paint your house before selling. You dramatically increase the chances of getting more for you home. Especially if you choose the right color in the right room. Homeowners who paint their bathrooms a shade of blue earn an average of $5,440 more than asking price, according to a recent Zillow survey.
