The Color People Offer Tips to Boost A Home's Sale Price with Color
Attractive Exterior Paint Schemes Can Increase A Home's Value and Hasten Its Sale
DENVER, CO - March 10, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Updating a home's exterior with a fresh and attractive palette
of color is one of the single best ways to boost a home's sales price and hasten its sale, according to James
Martin, president of the Denver-based architectural color consulting firm The Color People (www.colorpeople.com).
"First impressions are so important when selling a home and effective color use offers an extremely high-impact,
low-cost way to enhance a home's curb appeal," says Martin.
Spring is traditionally the time most would-be home sellers put their palaces on the market. This busy selling
period pits large numbers of homeowners against each other in a race to sell their homes quickly and profitably.
Color, Martin says, is a key way to make a home stand out favorably from the competition and ensure that it sells
for its highest value.
But many homeowners find making the right color selections a daunting undertaking.
Martin, whose firm works with
homeowners across the country, offers these tips to help make the process easier:
- Dark colors make a house look smaller but more substantial. Light colors make a house look larger but you
don't want to make a house on a tight lot look larger -- it will just look squeezed.
- Light colored windows look larger and make a house feel more open, airy and sunny.
- Try to add a punch color to your body and trim colors. Use it on the door or shutters or both. A punch color
is like the tie on a man's suit: a focal point which brings the whole look together.
