When selling your home, exterior paint color (and curb appeal as a whole) plays a big factor in resale value. “Ever heard ‘don’t judge a book by its cover?’” Realtor Jessica Lingscheit of The Somerday Group asks. “We all do it! And your home will definitely be judged by the outside appearance.”
The reality is, aside from buyers looking for a fixer upper, the majority of people on the market for a new home aren’t interested in extra projects, like painting, once they move in. Plus, Lingscheit adds, not every home buyer can see the potential in a home when it’s an unappealing color. So, ensuring your home’s exterior is inviting is key to drawing buyers in, which is the first step to getting competitive offers.
