Paint colours can make a difference when selling. Buyers prefer current, light, and neutral walls. It is what buyers are looking for. Current wall colours are especially important for photos. Neutral wall colours not only look better but also provides potential buyers with a blank slate. They can envision their furniture, artwork, photography with neutral walls.
Neutral walls also appeal to the masses. When selling you do want your photos to stand out and neutral walls are a nice backdrop for making the property much more appealing. It is the least expensive investment for the greatest return.

Paint colours that you should never leave on your walls include yellow, red, and orange. Stagers, designers, and the brilliant duo Property Brothers -Jonathan and Scott- recommend to never use these paint colours on interior walls when selling. Yellow, orange and red are a hard sell. They look dated. They are not what buyers want. A sellers equity may be at stake and the property may sit.
