Posted by Kelsey Publicover on Feb 26, 2018 11:00:00 AM

Sprucing up your home’s exterior can be an effective way to increase its appeal to potential buyers once you put it up for sale. Improving landscaping and making small repairs to fencing and other exterior structures may help catch a buyer’s eye. However, one of the most effective ways to improve your home’s curbside appeal is to touch up its outside with a few creative exterior painting ideas that can help it stand out in the competitive real estate seller’s market.

Consider Your Surroundings

If you plan to invest in having the entire exterior of your home repainted, you may want to consider the colors of the surrounding environment, which can enhance the appearance of your home if you pair the right colors. There are a few factors you can consider when it comes to making a color choice, such as:

  • The color schemes of other homes on your block
  • The flora and fauna that surrounds your home
  • Which hues might complement your area’s seasonal colors

Taking time to think about your home’s surroundings can help you choose colors that can stand the test of time and trends.

Make Your Front Door Pop

Even small color touchups can improve the exterior look of your home, such as painting your main entry door a bright and eye-catching hue. Ask your local professional painting company advice about colors and paint brands that are designed to stand up against the elements. Primary colors such as red, yellow and green can give your home’s exterior that extra touch of style that buyers might notice.


Choose Influential Colors

Colors can rouse a variety of feelings or reactions in each buyer who visits your home, and you can use different hues to influence what your home might say to them. Neutral warm colors may make some feel warm and comfortable, while a white exterior with a brighter trim may evoke feelings of nostalgia in others. This can improve your chances of attracting buyers.
