You don't have to be ready to sell your home to be thinking about keeping your home resell friendly. If you are like us, most of the painting occurred when we first bought our house. I don't particularly love painting, so I wanted to land on some colors that would work well if/when we wanted to resell.
If you have been actively looking at houses on our market for a while. You will see that most houses that get flipped will go with a light grey interior with white trim. This is probably your most neutral and safest bet. That being said, not everyone wants only these colors. So what colors should you avoid?
Colors To Avoid
According to Realtor.com, you should avoid orange, black and violet. This doesn't mean you cant use these colors. They should just be kept as accents and avoided as all over wall colors.
Colors To Choose
We already discussed the popular use of light grey with white trim as favorite for flipping. Again, this is because it is very neutral and people can best imagine their lives and furniture in the house. If you want something other than neutral, natural colors are popular; particularly blue and then green.
