If you’re selling your house, a fresh coat of interior wall paint is one of the least expensive and most effective updates you can do to help stage the home. The accepted wisdom for staging is to keep paint colours neutral, in the whites and beiges. The idea is that the neutral colours let prospective buyers picture their own décor ideas when viewing they house.
Staging a home is like marketing it. You present the house in the best way possible to improve how fast, and for how much, it sells. Marketers will tell you that the secret to good marketing is to highlight what’s different about what you’re trying to sell.
So if every other house on the market is painted in whites and beiges, what should you do when staging your home?
