Stick to neutral colors if you’re trying to sell your house fast

The color green may have been considered the trendy shade to paint doors, walls and furniture in the last couple of years and TikTok DIY’s highlight how attractive this can be in some cases. But when it comes to the real estate market, design experts say home sellers should stick with what appeals to most: neutral colors.

According to the Paint & Color Trends 2022 Report published by Fixr, a home improvement resource, 81 percent of interior design experts say whites and creams are the best colors to use when selling a house this year.

“Whites and creams make a neutral, clean, fresh backdrop for many rooms,” reads the report. “You can still include color in your textiles if you want to add personality to the space, but it can make it easier for prospective buyers to see their own furnishings in a space when looking at a white or light-colored wall.”

Today, conforming no-point 30-year fixed mortgage rates are averaging 3.625 percent and 15-year rates are near 2.875 percent.
