Seth Godin, one of my favorite marketers, writes a thought provoking blog which I routinely read. Seth’s doesn’t specifically write about the real estate industry but his ideas can be applied to just about any industry.
The other day, Seth wrote a post titled “Don’t forget about the color”. In Seth’s post, he said “You don’t need to make a big deal of it” and “A little goes a long way”. Seth didn’t write this post about real estate but what he said about color is good advice for home sellers.
A little color goes a long way. If the walls in your Spring Texas house look like the colors of the rainbow, you have too much color. I know, I know … it is just paint you say. It’s easily changed. And I agree it is easily changed but what you are forgetting is buyers want a move-in ready house. Buyers do not want to repaint your walls.
If you want to get the most money possible for your Spring Texas home and I assume you do, then cater to the desires of buyers. We still have plenty of new construction homes in Spring Texas where buyers do not have to make any changes. A little color but not a lot will bring more buyers to your door and will get you more money for your house.
What’s the best wall color that appeals to buyers? Kilim Beige by Sherwin Williams. It’s the new neutral that numerous Spring Texas home builders are using.

From the beginning she was extremely up front and honest about exactly what we would need to do to get our house sold. We had an incredibly tight timeline, that she explained would be difficult to make - but she helped us make it happen and our house sold in 2 days! She had recommendations for all our home repair needs and they were all professional and fairly priced. She worked hard to really sell our offer for our new home - she was able to pull off the tight timeline, securing a rent back from our old house so we had time to move out, and a contingency for our new home. Definitely exceeded our expectations. She was so helpful along the way - as first time home sellers we really relied on her and we feel lucky to have worked with her! You will not regret working with Jill! read less
