Leland Home Builders is here to help you sell your house quickly, and new paint in the right color makes a home feel move-in ready to potential buyers. If choosing just the right paint color seems intimidating, have no fear. We have no-fail recommendations for you.


Neutral colors

Neutral colors are among the most versatile. Real estate professionals recommend neutral color palettes, which are universal and more flexible for new homeowners to picture their personal items with. For a minimal, airy look, check out Agreeable Gray, Accessible Beige, or Alabaster.


Warm whites

White paint makes a room feel more spacious and open, but the amount of natural and artificial light in the room may influence how the color you choose looks in your home. You can try a few small sample spaces and use the one that takes in the light the best to keep the space looking warm and clean. A few paint colors you can’t go wrong with from Sherwin Williams are: Whitetail, Creamy, or Ivory Lace.


Cool whites

Cool whites tend to be a more modern choice for home paint color. Potential buyers have a first impression the moment they walk in that often sticks with them, and bold, bright, or dated wall colors could deter them from the start. Repainting is a quick and inexpensive way to modernize your home and make the appearance aesthetically pleasing to buyers. Try Incredible White, Pearly White, or Ice Cube.


Consider the outside

Look at your home as someone brand new to the neighborhood would. If the exterior paint needs updating, look at your home and adjacent homes and choose exterior colors that will coordinate well. Dark colors and black are “in,” but you’ll want to make sure it works in your neighborhood. Consider these options for your exterior: Outerspace, Cyberspace, or Sable.


Quality matters

Investing in quality paint is a small investment for a larger payoff when you quickly sell your home to happy buyers. Skip cheap, flat paint, and choose something that will coat the home beautifully and will not scuff easily in your last weeks there. New paint throughout being included in your listing will entice buyers to take a look.
