2018 Best Paint Selections for Selling Your Milwaukee Home

They say jewel tones are back. That may be true, but when selling your home for top dollar, those jewel tones have got to go. Neutralizing your home’s interior and exterior paint color is very important to your success in selling your home.

It is the little things that count, and in this case, spending a little money on fresh paint and making the right paint choices can increase your home’s sale price by thousands of dollars. The buyer’s opinion is the only one that matters when you are selling your home, and this is what buyers want:

White Painted Trim Woodwork2018 Top Paint Colors - White Paint Colors

Buyers want a light, bright, contemporary look, not the darkness that comes with oak woodwork (or worse, dark paneling!). Mequon, as well as some other communities, are filled with homes with oak-trimmed interiors, and buyers cringe when they see it.

So, if you have unpainted oak trim, strongly consider painting your oak palace with Benjamin Moore’s Dove White in a Satin Finish to attract the best price for your property. It’s the perfect white for your trim and for your ceiling.

In addition, professionally caulk and paint all crown molding for the best results. Avoid semi-gloss finishes on interior woodwork; choose a satin finish instead.

Flat Gray Paint or Beige Neutrals

And for your home’s walls, it’s still all about gray in 2018. It’s a contemporary color that often communicates style and elegance. Gray also gives home owners and designers a neutral palette for interior decorating and provides depth for subtler colors and makes bolder colors stand out. Here are my top wall paint choices when staging homes for sale:

1. Kilm Beige – Sherwin Williams

2. Revere Pewter – Benjamin Moore

3. Grayish – Sherwin Williams

4. Agreeable Gray – Sherwin Williams

5. Antique White – Sherwin Williams

6. Popular Gray – Sherwin Williams
