“Colour can be a powerful tool for attracting buyers to a home, especially in listing photos and videos,” said Zillow chief economist Svenja Gudell. “Painting walls in fresh, natural-looking colours, particularly in shades of blue and pale gray not only make a home feel larger, but also are neutral enough to help future buyers envision themselves living in the space.
“Incorporating light blue in kitchens and bathrooms may pay off especially well as the colour complements white countertops and cabinets, a growing trend in both rooms,” she added.
If a seller is adamant about keeping colour in the home, have them consider a pop of colour on an accent wall using Pantone’s Color of The Year, Greenery, or have them incorporate jewel-toned decor pieces throughout the home.
