Paint Your House in Dollars
We all know how color can affect us without our knowing. Red flares us up, cerulean blue calms, while yellow is contagiously happy. People in the real estate business as a matter of fact use this knowledge not just to up the value of properties, but to convince their buyers to close the deal as well.
Painting or even just touching up can be the cheapest was to freshen up your home. However, don't get carried away with the whole painting business by buying gallons of paint in unpronounceable colors. "Blazing Avocado" or "Magenta Surprise" may initially seem like exciting colors to choose, but keep in mind that buyer will also have to live with it for a while and they may not like every color. It's wise then to stick with color schemes that are classic and safe but elegant, and which won't clash with the neighborhood. You can never go wrong with white, cream, pale blue, and other nuetral tones. If prospective buyers feel soothed by your house's color, then it's more likely that they'll be in a “buying mood”.
- Check out books and magazines about home design to have an idea of just how colors and their combination can give a dramatic effect to your house. The basics, of course, are: Light colors make a room seem large while dark ones make it small. Reds and oranges are warm, while blues and greens are cool. As much as possible, strive for harmony when choosing a color scheme; although don't let us stop you from experimenting. That is, as long as you know the effect you want to achieve.

So do a little homework. Don’t tire looking at swatches of colors and combining them. Make friends with your local hardware store. Invest on a good set of brushes and rollers, buy only quality paint, and have fun coloring! In the end, it all pays, and you’ll be glad you did!
