If you are planning to list and sell your home in the Ottawa Real Estate market or if you are buying a new house consider painting before buying or selling as a good investment.

Paint colours can have an impact on how the prospective buyers visualize themselves living in your home once they have purchased it and if it is your new home you will want to personalize it with your own personality.  You want the potential buyers to feel comfortable and right at home from the moment they drive up the driveway to the first steps they take inside.

Today’s trending paint colours are very popular and any of them come in neutral shades.

New home buyers are looking for less gender oriented paint colours and falling more for just neutral greens, grays, blues.

Neutralizing all the rooms with a clean and simple paint colour palette gives the home the perfect canvas for the new owners to envision themselves living in it.

Using colours such as  Decorator’s White or Simply White from Benjamin Moore Paints for example create the feeling for a smaller room to look larger and adds more light to a space.
