Paint No-No’s for Home Sellers:

Home Seller's Paint

To recap:

Black is too foreboding and not welcoming to buyers. This is definitely the number one color to avoid. Tree green isn’t for everyone, and will cause your home to blend into the yard, reducing it’s curb appeal. Lime green is unappealing, and a color best used for accents. Bright yellow is overwhelming, and although considered a happy color; it’s too much for your home. Dark brown is dingy & uninviting. Home sellers should consider a lighter, more neutral shade of brown. Purple is overpowering, and unless you have a Victorian home, this should be avoided at all costs. Pink is unwanted for the exterior of a home. Home sellers should consider painting a neutral color over all pink walls.
