Color Your Flower Mound Home for a Quicker Sell

flower mound home

As experienced Dallas real estate professionals, we know the importance of color in selling a home – both interior and exterior colors. Color evokes emotion; some are calming, relaxing, or invigorating, while others – such as lime green – can actually leave you feeling anxious or nervous. If you’re planning to sell your Flower Mound home (or Dallas-area home) in the near future, you may want to reconsider the dark burgundy on your dining room walls, or the bright blue front door/window trim.

Certainly there’s no reason to paint every room in your home white or beige, but you can choose complementary tones that are a bit calmer and preferred by most people in the market to buy a home.

On the Outside

What is the first thing a potential buyer notices when driving by? The exterior of your home. Paint colors should reflect the colors of other homes in your neighborhood, usually sand, grays, taupes, and similar colors. Make sure your deck, entrance door, and even your mailbox post are freshly stained or painted. If the siding is molding or looks like the weather has taken its toll, give it a fresh coat of paint as well.

In the kitchen, you can’t beat white

A decade or two ago, homeowners loved rich dark green and burgundy shades in the kitchen and dining room areas. Today, it’s all about a clean, fresh, bright look. When it comes to cabinets, nothing is as ageless as white. In fact, white cabinets make it difficult for a potential buyer to determine the age of a kitchen – great if your kitchen is older. You don’t have to stick to stark white – any shade of white is a good choice.

Bright bathrooms

Dark colors make rooms appear smaller than they actually are, so stick to white, cream, pale butter yellow, or other bright colors in the bathroom. If you’ve painted the bathroom walls a soft shade of seafoam green, no need to worry – this is the one room where potential buyers are a little more forgiving.

Light, neutral, monochromatic colors for large spaces

The main rooms in your home (such as your living room) should contain neutral colors that aren’t too dark or busy. Colors such as cream, taupe, or gray are good choices, especially when they’re on the lighter end of the spectrum. Neutral shades make it easier for buyers to imagine what their own furnishings would look like in your home.

Considering selling your Flower Mound home? Keep these paint color tips in mind. While you may love that pumpkin colored bedroom, others may not find it so appealing. Painting is a simple, affordable way to make your home appealing to buyers.

  • Everyone we’ve dealt with at Team Nelson has absolutely gone above and beyond what we would have expected from any realtor. They helped us get our house sold quickly and painlessly for the price we wanted. When we didn’t move forward with the build we intended to and had ongoing issues with the builders even after the fact Bill and Tara have still been in close contact with us trying to make sure we’re still taken care of. They genuinely care about making sure their clients are happy. We appreciate everything they’ve done and would 100% recommend them to anyone.

    We used Team Nelson to sell our house and purchase a new one. The whole team was great. They gave us good advice throughout the process, our home sold over a single weekend of showing and they did a great job showing us many houses and working with us to find the perfect house for us.

    Casey was recommened to us by a family member. We were really nervous about selling our house in the middle of the COVID-19 shelter in place time period. We needed to sell within a month or so in order to proceed with our new build that we started back in 2019. With this in mind, Casey was ready to take the challenge.

    Casey and Bill showed up to the house on time, and we were all on the same page for listing time, price, and details. The next day, pictures of the house were taken, and the following day our house was on the market. The next 4 days, we had over 1,000 views, 100 saves, 12 showings, and 4 offers! None of that would have been possible without the expertise of the photos, details, and networking of Your Home Free. After a couple of negotiations with the assistance of Casey, we sold the house for a full price offer! Our house was on the market for less than a week! We are so glad we went with Bill and Casey, and would recommend them for any home sell!
