2019 | Best Paint Selections for Selling your Home

Every year we put out a blog post on the best new paint colors to help you sell your home. For 2019, you might be surprised to hear that gray is moving out and homes are selling faster with even more neutral tones in warm and cool white wall variations.

White walls (paler colors) and white woodwork are in and the strong dark colors of last year are out for selling your home. Neutralizing your home’s interior and exterior paint color is very important to your home’s selling success. De-personalize your space and go soft neutral colors throughout for the best and highest price.

It is the little things that count and spending a little money on painting taste specific rooms can advance your home’s resale by thousands of dollars. Selling your home for top dollar? Remember to appeal to what the buyers want.

Here are my favorite Pale White Wall Colors for 2019:

Benjamin Moore

  • Super White – Brilliant and Crisp
  • China White – Creamy and Warm
  • Chantilly Lace - Cool
  • White Dove – Creamy perfect for wood trim.
  • Sheep’s Wool – Sophisticated
  • Decorator’s White – Bright and Balanced
  • Cotton Balls – Neutral, Never Fail White
  • Simply White – Bright and Fresh, Clean and Versatile, Balanced

Sherwin Williams

  • Alabaster – Creamy, not sterile, no undertones
  • Pure White – Fresh and crisp for a clean slate
  • Extra White – Clean and bright
  • Snowbound – Soft and Warm


Don’t Forget the Trim!
Do you have 1990s oak trim in your home? Consider painting the trim to a nice white trim color to attract your buyers. Mequon is filled with oak trim houses and the buyers cringe when they see it. Consider painting your oak woodwork with Benjamin Moore’s Dove White in a Satin Finish to attract the best price for your property. Make sure all crown molding is caulked and painted professionally for your best results. Avoid semi-gloss finishes on interior woodwork, choose a satin finish instead.
