If you’re considering putting your home on the market (or you just want to be able to brag that you’ve got the best looking home on the block), you’re probably searching for every home-improvement that’s worth it to increase the value of your home and property. But did you know that something as subtle as the tone of paint you choose can affect how much your home is worth?
In a study by Zillow, one of the top websites for home buyers to gauge the worth and value of homes for sale, researchers compared the final selling prices of over 32,000 homes against their paint colors of choice and the results were pretty shocking. Before you call your our experts for exterior painting in Lower Merion, PA, consider adding one of these colorful features scientifically proven to increase the value of your home!
