How to quickly add $6,271 to your Canmore home

By December 3, 2018 No Comments

Today I found out how to simply add $6,271 to a Canmore home value. I was reading a Business Insider article where they looked at a major American study of the effect of paint colours on property value. They determined that by painting your front door charcoal, smoky, or jet black, you can fetch an extra $6,271 on the sale price of your home. With the low cost of hiring us to paint a door, this seems like a no brainer for anyone trying to sell their house in Canmore. If a quick paint job like this can add that much value to your property when it’s up for sale, imagine the value it can add to your life while you’re still living in the home.

The Zillow study also found that a Perriwinkle Blue bathroom can add $2,786 to your property value. For your living room they recommend light taupe “a warm tan with pink or peach undertones; darker peach to pink undertones on accent walls.”

The study also notes several colours which will reduce your property value.

Of course Canmore is a very unique place and not all doors and houses will look ideal in those colours, but it goes to show how the right paint selection can make a tremendous impact. Contact us any time to discuss timeless classic colours or the hottest trends to add extra value to your property.
