What Color House Sells the Best According to Experts

If you’re planning to list your house, we’ve answered the question of what color house sells the best. If you’re wondering what popular paint colors buyers are searching for, try these paint colors.

It’s always smart to paint your house before selling. You dramatically increase the chances of getting more for your home. Especially if you choose the right color in the right room.

For example, homeowners who paint their bathrooms a shade of blue earn an average of $5,440 more than the asking price, according to a recent Zillow survey.

Real estate agents and Paintzen color consultants find that neutral paint colors are best when selling your home. Zillow says that cool neutrals, “have broad appeal, and may signal that the home is well cared for or has other desirable features.”

A neutral coat of paint gives the buyer a blank canvas to imagine what their life would be like in that space. Additionally, lighter paint colors look better in online pictures.
