Sell Your Denver Home Faster – Use Paint Color Psychology
When it comes to selling your home faster, Jeanette Joy Fisher, author of The Truth about Making Money Flipping Houses, is a top expert on using Denver house painting color psychology to influence buyers at deep subliminal levels. Does it work? Actually, the use of house painting Denver specific colors for psychological motivation is a best-kept secret among professionals.
When painting your Denver home for resale, choosing the right colors can make a huge difference in your paycheck at closing. For instance, did you know that the exterior color of houses selling most quickly is a certain shade of yellow, but that choosing the wrong shade of yellow can kill a sale?
You'll find many brochures in Denver home painting stores, showing various combinations of exterior paint colors. But most people don't realize that most of those combinations actually include three colors, and not just two. Limiting your Denver exterior paint scheme to just two colors also limits your income potential.
For a fast sale, think fun colors and go for a third, or even a fourth, exterior color. Think "Disneyland Main Street," where every shop is painted in glorious multi-colors. Adding more colors will also add definition to the various architectural details of your Denver home. Use gloss or semi-gloss paint on wood trim.
The Psychology of Exterior Colors
When choosing Denver home painting exterior colors, take the sales price of your home into account. Certain colors, especially muted, complex shades, attract wealthy or highly-educated buyers, whereas buyers with less income or less education generally prefer simpler colors. A complex color contains tints of gray or brown, and usually requires more than one word to describe, such as "sage green," as opposed to "green."
On the other hand, simple colors are straightforward and pure. Generally, Denver houses in the lower price range sell faster and for higher prices when painted in simple colors like yellow or tan, accented by white, blue, or green trim.
Always consider your selling season (the time of year you'll be marketing your home) and climate when choosing Denver home painting colors. Estimate the amount of time you'll need to get your Denver home ready for sale, and then add on extra days for unexpected delays. Use cool colors, such as blues, greens, and grays, to sell during spring and summer, and warm colors, such as yellows, reds, and maroons, when selling in the fall and winter.
When getting ready to paint your Denver house, look at the colors of neighboring houses and choose Denver home paint colors that harmonize, yet stand out from the crowd. Colors that clash badly with other houses will detract from the overall neighborhood.
At the beginning of the article, I told you that Denver homes with yellow exteriors sell the quickest. But which shade of yellow sells best? First, the yellows to avoid: yellows with green undertones look sickly to most buyers.
The best-selling yellow exterior color is actually a pale, sunny yellow, especially when complimented with one or more carefully-chosen accent colors. For instance, a semi-gloss white trim will give your Denver home a clean and fresh look, and adding a third color, such as green, can make your Denver home painting even more attractive to prospective buyers.
Colors affect human beings in many ways, and by using the principles of Color Psychology, you can make your Denver home stand out from the competition, sell more quickly, and at a higher price.
At DOWD RESTORATION we not only do a great Denver house painting job at a great price, we believe that its the "little" things like color psychology that can make a BIG difference in your overall satisfaction, whether you are selling your Denver home or plan to live in it for decades to come.
