Zillow: Paint colors that can add value to your home

  • 0

SEATTLE, WA (WWSB) - Real estate company, Zillow, recently conducted a study on how to sell your home for more than expected. 

Zillow looked at 135,000 photos from sold homes around the country to see how certain paint colors impacted their sale price.

According to Zillow, homes with tuxedo kitchen cabinets and black front doors can sell up to $6,000 more than expected.

"For a seller, painting a front door is one the least expensive home prep projects, but also one that can have a powerful impact on a home's sale price," says Kerrie Kelly Zillow Home Designer Expert, in a press release. 

Zillow says, listings with neutral wall colors accented by dark pops of color sell for more money.  Homes with red or brown wall colors can sell for less than expected.  White cabinets contrasted by a dark navy blue or black kitchen island were some of the most common tuxedo kitchens in top-performing listings.
