We are almost done with January! I can’t believe it, but I can, ya know? It actually seems like it has dragged on for days, and that New Year’s was months ago. Maybe it’s just me? I can’t help but think of what we were doing last year at this time. We had decided to purchase a lot and met with a realtor in January to help us evaluate what we needed to do to get our home ready to sell. We were told that March was going to be the very best time for us to get market value, so we got busy.
We ended up selling our home in 2 hours! Partly, I believe to the timing of when we put it on the market.
My advice to anyone wanting to put their home on the market, do it in early Spring! Which means, you need to start getting it ready, NOW.
Paint color is a huge factor for buyers, so if you need some great color suggestions, Annie Marshall, a realtor from New York (@marshallhomes)put together some of her favorite colors that have helped clients sell their homes fast and gave me permission to share them.

These are all great warm grays that will compliment any room. They will open up your home, make dark rooms like bigger, and be pleasing to the eye. If buyers feel like your home is move in ready without a lot of projects, including paint, they are more likely to buy.
I did a post two years ago with my top 10 paint colors to sell your home – for more ideas and inspiration see here.
If you are in the market to sell, I wish you the best of luck. It can be a very stressful time. I’m hoping to ease that stress by helping with the paint color process.
Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
