The best colour for your re-sale value buck

Here in Calgary, it’s not surprising to many to see that the recession is at it’s tail-end. More and more jobs are being created, which means people are finally starting to invest their money in things they love rather than just the necessities. That being said, the housing market in our fair city has seen a steady increase in the last year, but with demand higher as people flock to Calgary for work, inventory is lower. What am I getting at you ask?? Well, re-sale and home staging of course! Having your home look it’s best when trying to sell is more than likely to get your home sold quickly and for the best posisble price.

I’m often asked what’s the best colour for re-sale, and although there is no straight to the point answer, I have created a list of some of the more go-to options that seem to work in most conditions. Keeping in mind, that colour will look different in every application, based on lighting, flooring and furniture, so we do always recommend that you take a sample home and compare to what you are working with.

I’ve raved about this colour before, Revere Pewter HC-172, is a soft gray that can look warm or cool depending on what it’s paired with.

Shaker Beige HC-45

A warmer option, Shaker Beige HC-45, is a muted warm tone that gives off a nice amount of “colour” without being overly dark either.

Stonington Gray HC-170

A soft blue based gray like Stonington Gray HC-170 would pair very well with rich woods or stronger accent colours.

Pashmina AF-100

A little richer in depth, Pashmina AF-100 is a versatile colour that has the ability to pair with warm or cooler accents.

Bleeker Beige HC-45, tends towards a slight green undertone, yet is still very neutral.

As I mentioned earlier, these colours are all just options that are all very versatile and tend to work in most conditions. If you have found a colour that works best for you, I’d love to hear about it!
