Have you ever put on a favorite outfit and the perfect makeup, then walked into a different room and just hated the effect? The same thing can happen with your paint choices. The play of light in your rooms can significantly affect how your color choices look. Natural light and artificial light reflecting around the room at different times of day creates a different visual dynamic. As you're preparing your house for sale, you want to keep that play of light in mind when choosing your paints.

Getting Started

It's probably been a long while but think back to prisms in grade school. Remember how each band of light in the rainbow reflects a light ray of a different length bouncing off of the water in the air? The same applies to paint. Your entire visual experience is determined by how the light reflects off the items around you, and how your eye interprets that light. Interpretation can be very different between people since humans have a wide variety of color blindness. As many as seven to ten percent of men are somewhat or entirely color blind in the red-green spectrum and an additional, those lesser, number of people are affected by blue-yellow color blindness. This color perception means that even without the changing light, a neutral color with a green or red undertone could appear different to different people. Combine that with the different light at different times of day or seasons and each person coming to view your home will have a different experience. 

Direction Matters

Throughout North America, the most consistent light both day- and year-round comes from southern exposure windows. That light will intensify whatever colors you choose, so pay attention. South-facing morning rooms and those where you want to be awake and active should have bright colors, while south-facing rooms where you want to relax or calm down at the end of the day should have calmer and cooler colors. Eastern exposure rooms will be brighter in the morning and darker in the evening, so you may want to complement that with blue or green undertones for balance. West-facing rooms will be the opposite: darker in the morning and brighter at night. For bedrooms especially, this can be important, since a warm color scheme can make it easier to get up and to go in the darker room. Afternoon sunshine has blue tones which can wash out your paint colors. That means stick to brighter choices with yellow undertones for rooms meant mostly for midday use. You can also complement, enhance or even override the natural light in a place by your artificial light choices. Keep the sun's light in mind when picking your bulb types and placement and watch what it does to your color choices throughout the day.

How to Choose?!

First, start by getting your color swatches. Visit your local paint, DIY, or home improvement store to get swatches in the colors and finishes that interest you. Get multiples so you can hang them up in different places along your walls to see how the light works with them. Check them through the day and with different artificial lights and window coverings to get the broadest idea of how the colors will look. Once you get down to just a couple of hues, get small samples of them and paint some swaths across the wall. Now, repeat the process of watching throughout the day and trying out different lighting as it will give you an even more in-depth understanding of how the colors will look. Once you make a choice, remember to use a primer to cover over your temporary swatches before doing the final paint job, or you could end up with sections that are slightly different colors.

Unsure about which colors are best for your home? Talk to your real estate professional about picking the right neutral tones to show your home at its best.

Want to add your house to the real estate market? Work with an expert real estate agent, and you can streamline the home selling process.

A real estate agent can make a world of difference for any home seller, at any time. This housing market professional will teach you the ins and outs of selling a home and ensure you can get the best price for your residence. Plus, he or she will be ready to respond to your home selling questions and provide consistent support as the home selling journey progresses.

Ultimately, it is important to understand what it takes to work with a real estate agent. This will allow you to maintain a positive approach throughout the home selling process. It might help you improve your chances of a quick sale too.

What does it take to work with a real estate agent? Here are three rules that every home seller should consider.

1. Hire a Real Estate Agent That Makes You Feel Comfortable

Selling a home can be stressful, particularly for a first-time property seller. Fortunately, working with the right real estate agent ensures you can receive world-class home selling guidance.

As a home seller, you should employ a real estate agent that makes you feel comfortable. This housing market professional will be able to alleviate your home selling concerns and guarantee you are fully supported at each stage of the home selling journey.

2. Keep the Lines of Communication Open at All Times

What good is a real estate agent if he or she won't keep you up to date about home showings, offers on your residence and homebuyer feedback?

For a home seller, it is paramount to collaborate with a real estate agent who can provide immediate assistance. This housing market professional should be ready to communicate with you via phone, email and text and provide regular updates throughout the home selling cycle.

Your real estate agent also should be unafraid to be honest with you. That way, you can receive unbiased suggestions and recommendations from your real estate agent that can help you make informed home selling decisions.

3. Understand That Problems May Arise During Home Selling Process

Although a real estate agent will do everything possible to promote your house to the right groups of property buyers, it is vital to remember that the real estate market offers no guarantees. In addition, problems sometimes may arise that may slow down the home selling journey.

Your real estate agent should be able to describe challenges that you may encounter before you add your residence to the housing market. This will enable you to plan ahead and allocate the necessary time and resources to reduce the risk of such problems.

Hiring a real estate agent to help you sell your house may seem difficult at first. But with the aforementioned tips, you can find an expert real estate professional who will make it easy for you to sell your residence.
