Best paint colors for Selling you home!

Monday, June 04, 2018

Nothing makes me happier than freshly painted walls and baseboards when I'm showing buyer's homes. It's the little things in life! :-) A fresh coat of paint can go a long way when it comes to selling your home especially if you select the right color.

Homes with rooms painted in shades of light blue or pale blue/gray can sell for as much as $5,440 more than expected, according to a new Zillow report.

Zillow’s 2017 Paint Color Analysis looked at more than 32,000 photos from sold homes around the country to see how certain paint colors impacted their sale price on average, when compared to similar homes with white walls.

Curious what colors may help you sell your home for more money? Here are a just a few examples. If you are looking to sell your home, my real estate team is the best in helping our clients select the right colors for resale along with staging your home to sell for TOP DOLLAR!

Blue kitchens

Homes with blue kitchens, often found in soft gray-blue, sold for a $1,809 premium.



Light blue bathrooms

Homes with light pale blue to soft periwinkle blue bathrooms sold for $5,440 more than expected.


Brown living rooms

Turns out homes with light beige, pale taupe or oatmeal-colored living room walls sell for $1,926 more than expected.



Cadet blue bedrooms

Homes with light cerulean to cadet blue bedroom wall colors can come with a $1,856 premium.


Slate blue dining rooms

Homes with slate blue to pale gray blue dining rooms also sold for more money — $1,926 more on average than homes with white dining room wall colors.


“Greige” home exteriors

A home’s exterior color may also have an impact on its sale price. Homes painted in “greige,” a mix of light gray and beige, sold for $3,496 more than similar homes painted in a medium brown or with tan stucco.

Welcome to Paradise!

It’s a beautiful day in PARADISE! What is paradise to you? Is it a place, mindset or something you create?

Every morning since my girls were little I would open the blinds to their room and say, “It’s a beautiful day in paradise.” You may wonder why do I say this? I want my girls to think everyday we create our own paradise. My husband and I chose to raise our girls in Naples, FL which has been voted Happiest, Healthiest City in America along with having a piece of our heart still in Texas! (we own a real estate company in FL and TX) I would love to share with you what paradise means to me. Hopefully, this will help you learn a little about me.

My paradise is seeing the joy in my children’s faces and making my husband proud (our brokerage is Caine Premier Properties and I always want to represent his name well). I love seeing the excitement in my clients faces when they have achieved the dream of home-ownership and finding the perfect home they never thought existed or helping them create their dream home. I get great satisfaction empowering our Realtors in TX and FL with the knowledge, tools and confidence to grow their business. Designing our investment properties with love and unique TIMELESS character (nothing worse than a boring home) is also a source of great satisfaction. Growing in my faith with God and ending the day with my toes in the sand watching our beautiful sunsets with family or friends knowing that I lived the day with no regrets is my ultimate paradise.

In this blog, I will be sharing how I love to create paradise in people’s homes and backyards in my paradise of Naples, FL and North Texas.

I want to know, what is your paradise? Are you interested in creating your paradise and don’t know where to begin? Are you thinking of renovating your home or making it more functional and need ideas? Are you purchasing a new home and want ideas on how to give your home character? Are you about to sell your home wondering where to start? Using my “Design Techniques” I can help you sell your home quickly and for the most money.

My goal is to make you THINK... Are you living in your PARADISE? If not, how can I help you create your paradise? Paradise is a mindset, so let’s work creating your paradise together.

Paradise is not a PLACE it's a state of MIND!
