If you’re planning on selling your Lake Nacimiento home this spring, you may be wondering what you can do to help your home sell. While the homes’ condition, price and view will come into play; how you’ve cared for your home can also be a determining factor for buyers. Yet giving your home an updated, well maintained look can be as easy as a coat of paint!
According to a HomeGain Prepare to Sell survey, the average price to paint interior walls is anywhere between $500 to $750, which may seem like a lot of money to put out for paint. However, the fresh paint along helped increase the homes’ price by an average of $1,500 to $2,000, which is about a 250% return on investment!
Karen Dembsky, president of Peachtree Home Staging LLC and Georgia’s Real Estate Staging Association, put together some basic rules of color for each room in your Lake Nacimiento home.
Repainting the Kitchen- Stay in the orange, red and yellow families because they are food related and work well. Just be sure to keep them soft, appealing and neutral.
Repainting the Bathroom- Since bathrooms tend to be smaller, the room needs to stay lighter. Accessories are a great way to put color and style into a bathroom, so you’ll want to stay away from bright or dark colors on the walls.
Repainting the Bedroom- It’s important to keep the colors in the bedroom neutral and calming, since this room is viewed as a sanctuary. Make sure the color works with the flooring as well as the master bathroom and bedding. You want everything to flow together naturally.
Repainting the Home Office- Warm, rich colors are great for a home office. If you are working from your Lake Nacimiento home, these colors make it an appealing place to work or relax.
Dembsky also notes that white is actually the one color to avoid. While some may think they’re painting a blank, neutral slate for the next owner; it’s actually a bright color that can make a home feel very sterile. Beiges and tans are a great choice if you’re looking to go with one color throughout the home.
Need help with which colors to choose? Sherman Williams just came out with a tool called Chip-it! This free program allows you to choose a picture that you like because of the color scheme, and will scan it and give you a color pallette of paints based on that picture.

Even if you’re simply looking to update your Lake Nacimiento home this spring; painting is a great and inexpensive way to do so!
