When you’re getting your home ready for resale, one of the decisions you’ll have to make that will have an enormous impact on the cost and resale value of your home is the color of your siding. But, does siding color really matter? The short answer is yes. After all, your home’s exterior is the first thing potential buyers will see, and if they don’t like the color or don’t have the desire to repaint it, then they may ask you to lower your price or skip over your home completely. Neutral and traditional colors — such as white, off-white, cream, taupe, gray and some shades of blue — are a safe bet and appeal to most home buyers. Others appreciate more unique colors as long as the siding and trim colors complement each other.
How to Choose the Right Color
When it comes time to upgrade your home’s siding, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from. It’s easy to want to choose a color that suits your own personal preferences, but you’ll also have to consider what colors will appeal to potential buyers. Take note of the most popular shades in your neighborhood and select a color that fits that aesthetic. While standing out isn’t a bad thing, it’s best to stay within the same color range as the rest of the homes in your neighborhood to improve curb appeal. If you live in a homeowners association (HOA) community, this may also influence your siding color choice. HOA requirements may limit the shades you can choose for your home, and you’ll have to get pre-approval if you want a color outside of these options.
