One of the top things you can do to spruce up your home before you sell is to give your front door a new coat of paint! A 2022 survey from Zillow found that buyers are very sensitive to the colour of the front door and that certain colours can increase your home’s value up to $6,449! Read on to find out the front door colours that help sell your home for more, and which colours will reduce the value of your home.
The survey found that a black front door brought the highest offer price. On average, the prospective buyers said they would pay $6,449 more for a home that had this colour door. This is a classic, statement making colour that gives a home clean lines and an air of sophistication.
This contemporary blue-gray is a calming attractive colour that wins buyers over. So much so that according to the survey, they are willing to pay up to $1,537 more for a front door in this hue.
Pink is a great colour but it seems for prospective buyers it is the most off putting colour for a front door. Described as ‘kind of shabby looking’, this colour could depreciate your home by $6,516 less!
Cement gray front doors received the lowest overall score. This color fell flat with the lowest purchase intention, and on average, actual and prospective buyers would offer $1,236 less for a home with such a door. Though cement gray is not as polarizing as some colors, the majority of those surveyed agreed they’d show this color the door.
