How House Paint Can Affect Your Ohio Home Sale

This weekend many Ohio homeowners will take out their to-do lists to cross off home projects that have been in the works. Popular home projects during these late summer months might include tending to the landscaping, cleaning windows, tidying up the storage shed or garage and even painting the exterior of the home.

While you may be quick to simply choose a color you like, it’s important to think about how paint can affect your home sale in Brunswick, Hinckley, Medina or Strongsville this year. Paint can indeed transform the look of your home as well as the overall opinion of a homebuyer in Medina or Cuyahoga County.

Work with what you have
There are some aspects of your home’s current color that you cannot change— the flecks of gray or beige in the brick, for instance. When you work with what you have, including the color of the roof, you’ll end up with a much more cohesive color scheme and play to a homebuyer’s aesthetic tastes when you’re ready to sell your home.

Use an accent color
Unlike staging, you do not need to stick to an all-neutral palette when painting your Ohio home this year. In fact, choosing a contrasting accent color could make the home stand out amongst others in the neighborhood or even on the local real estate market. Dark colored home? Consider going with a light colored trim.

Think about the neighbors
While choosing a bold color for the intrigue may seem like a fun idea, homeowners should think about their neighbors’ homes too. You don’t want to choose a paint color that directly clashes with your neighbor’s house. It’s nice to stand out, but only if you do so in a way that works with their color schemes and doesn’t seem too intrusive.

Think about the home’s size
Medina County homebuyers will take note of the size of the home probably before they step foot in front of it, so be sure to choose a paint color that works in the home’s favor, not one that makes it appear smaller. Light colors make homes appear larger and welcoming, while dark colors tend to make a home look heavy and dominant.
