Bright colors scare most prospective buyers.
“How many coats will it take to cover that?”
“Will it bleed through?”
Once their corneas have been seared by your must-have color of choice, they won’t see anything but that wall. They won’t notice the hardwood floors or the granite counter, your house will forever be known as, “you know the one with the _________ colored wall.”
Better to handle those objections ahead of time by painting it over in something much more muted or neutral. Grey is the current color preference. You want the people buying your house to be able to imagine their items in the space – the bright fuchsia wall may interfere with that visualization.
Instead add a bit color through a few well-placed accessories; pillows, vases, floor rugs, art.
Oh, and if you paint like the person in the image… do yourself a favor and hire a professional. A shoddy paint job with too few coats and uneven edges, suggests you don’t pay attention to details; the prospective buyers will wonder where else you’ve cut corners.
