If youíre trying to sell your home, you probably have thought of everything from staging to pricing to when the best time for your realtor to hold an open house is. What you may not have considered is the exterior color of your home. Yes, both colors inside and outside of your home can attract or detract buyers from your home. 

Although it could seem silly for you to invest in a brand new exterior paint color right before you sell your home, it could result in some big returns when you head to sell the property. Below, youíll find some of the best exterior paint colors for your home and why these colors are great in attracting buyers. 

Colors That Blend In With The Natural Surroundings

This principle for color is fantastic. You have a wide range of choices in everything from a putty to a stone to shades of green. These colors all can blend in with the natural environment around your home. Depending upon what surrounds your home, the colors that you choose can vary widely. Do you have a home out in the woods? Choose a sharp shade of green or a bold shade of brown or tan. Everything from the type of foundation you have to the outer accents of the home should be considered when choosing these exterior paint colors.

Think Of The Type And Color Of The Trim You Want

If you really want white trim along the edges of your home, you should pair up that color with the base color of your home. For example, if youíre looking for a white trim, choose colors that will look good with that tone like shades of blue and gray. Remember that buyers will be attracted to complimenting colors.    

Neutral Is Best

When you really canít make up your mind when choosing an exterior paint color, always go with something neutral. This is the best way to play it safe when youíre putting your home up for sale and making changes. Buyers can always envision themselves living in a neutral colored home. It may be a bit more difficult to match the personalities of buyers with eccentric color choices. 

Examples Of Attractive Exterior Paint Colors

  • Taupe
  • Tan
  • Putty
  • Gray
  • Yellow
  • White
  • Light Blue
  • Deep Blue
  • Forest Green
  • Bright Red

While no magic combination of colors is guaranteed to make your home sell fast, youíll have a better chance of selling if the home appears pleasant from the outside in. Putting a fresh coat of paint on your home can really bring about more curb appeal, attracting buyers, possibly giving the property a bit more value. Donít hesitate to invest a little money in your home before you sell to get the maximum return on the sale.

Although you might have entered the housing market with a strategy to help you streamline your search for your dream home, it is important to remember that even the best-laid plan may need to be changed. And if you fail to discover your ideal residence after a comprehensive search, now may be a great time to revise your homebuying strategy.

Let's take a look at three tips to help you revamp your homebuying plan.

1. Consider Your Home Must-Haves and Wants

Creating a list of home must-haves and wants may be done at the start of a house search. Over time, however, this list may evolve. And if you update your list, you may be better equipped than ever before to reenter the real estate market with a fresh perspective.

Think about where you want to live in the foreseeable future too. Then, you can narrow your home search to specific cities and towns and accelerate the homebuying journey.

2. Review Your Budget

If you recently paid off your student loans or eliminated your credit cards, you may want to reassess your homebuying budget. That way, you can hone your house search and explore residences that fall within your up-to-date price range.

Of course, if you have yet to get pre-approved for a mortgage, you can still do so. Meet with banks and credit unions to learn about all of the mortgage options that are available. This will enable you to gain the insights you need to select a mortgage that matches your finances.

3. Learn About the Housing Market

The housing market may favor buyers or sellers. And if you have been searching for your dream home for several weeks or months, the market may have changed.

It does not take long for a buyer's market to become a seller's market, or vice-versa. As you consider your homebuying options, you should study the local real estate sector closely to determine whether the current housing market favors buyers or sellers.

Evaluating the prices of recently sold houses in a particular city or town usually is a good idea. This housing market data will enable you to find out whether sellers are receiving offers at or near their initial home asking prices.

You also should find out how long current residences in a particular city or town have been listed. If houses linger on the real estate market for an extended period of time, you may be operating in a market that favors buyers. Or, if homes are selling quickly, you may be operating in a seller's market.

Lastly, hiring a real estate agent often is helpful, particularly for homebuyers who are struggling to identify the perfect residence. A real estate agent can offer lots of tips as you conduct your search for your dream residence. Plus, if you need to revamp your homebuying strategy, a real estate agent will make it easy for you to do just that.
