When selling your home, we recommend neutral colors as they appeal to a broader range of people giving you more interested buyers. You can play around with colors by painting the trim a bolder shade, to make your property stand out. We recommend getting a professional paint consultation making sure you indicate you intend to sell the home. Remember, it’s not about what you like; it’s about what will appeal to the majority of buyers.
