I received an email from a seller who knew she needed help when selling her home. When I called her back, she said she needed the exterior of her house painted. I sent my painter over to give her a quote and he called me and said, “The house is pink!” I replied, “And you’re a painter, let me meet you and we’ll choose the right shade of Johnson County beige.
You may have a beautiful red dining room, yellow kitchen and green master bedroom but when buyers don’t have your same taste in colors, they may pass your home by. I recently listed a home that had a blue kitchen and I suggested that they change the paint to Johnson County Beige. They told me they were ok with that but if their house didn’t sell, they liked the blue kitchen.
