Adding color can help your flat fee listing sell faster, or really any kind of listing. With 30+ years in the real estate industry, I’ve seen a lot of stuff and I get asked alot of questions. One of the most common questions is, how can I get my listing to sell faster? One of the easiest and least expensive ways is to add some color. Color is of course subjective. Some people like bright colors and others like more earth tones or subdued colors. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. After years in the business of selling homes, I can say I have noticed a marked difference between properties that receive a fresh coat of paint with a splash of color vs the “sell it like is” homes. I can tell you from experience the homes with the fresh paint sell more quickly and for more money. This strategy works well for Flat Fee Listing, FSBO’s, or Agent represented listings. Now before you go off and buy a paint brush and get started, remember this! Don’t do the job unless your qualified and can complete it in a professional manner. A bad paint job is worse than no paint job at all. So, my advice is to hire a professional. Unless your experienced and handy.

What color should I paint my flat fee listing?
When I’m working with a flat fee listing this comes up almost every time. What color do I paint my house? Now were talking interior painting here folks, not exterior painting. However, the condition of the exterior of the home is also very important. But let’s talk interior color. The color depends on the character of the house. For example you probably wouldn’t paint the interior of a victorian mansion purple. Well, unless you are a Minnesota Vikings fanatic. So, look for a color that goes with the character of the house. Maybe if you have a victorian mansion, lucky you, you would go with an antique white. Modern homes can often times go with more pastel colors or a wall of color but not the whole room. Another consideration is the location of the home. North woods in Minnesota will be forest greens and earth tones, while homes on the beach might have a lighter blue or aqua tones. Stay away from real bright colors, unless it’s just an accent wall. When your ready to put your home on the market try our Flat Fee Listing Service and you could save thousands.
