It’s a beautiful day in PARADISE!

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.

75% off at ST-TROPEZ HOME

Thursday, May 31, 2018
I love a fabulous sale and let me tell you St-Tropez Home at Waterside in Naples is closing its location and they have everything 75% off. 

I stocked up on staging items for the homes I am selling right now. The store closes on Sunday, June 3rd so make sure you stop by ASAP while they still have some good stuff left.  My girls were in LOVE with the cool light fixtures for sale as well. See below pictures to see some of the remaining inventory.  Sorry in advance for the wacky sideways pictures, I am still learning how to use this BLOGGING program. :-)


I couldn't help myself and bought all of those Seahorse plates along with the cream circular plates so I could layer the two and use them for a formal dining room which a great technique when setting your table.

The color in these blue plates are stunning and pairing it with cream napkins and pretty silver and gold napkin ring would be spectacular. Speaking of napkin rings... Reagan was in love with some napkin rings and the kind owner gave them to her and wrapped it up all fancy. It made her night. Happy shopping!
