Best Exterior Colours to Help You Sell Your Home

If you’re considering selling your home, it may be in your best interest to give your home’s exterior a fresh new coat of paint. Selling a home can be a long, frustrating process. Making an investment before you decide to sell can expedite the selling speed and raise your home’s market value significantly.

We’ve identified several colours at the best options for selling your home. Even if you’re not looking to sell immediately, it’s never a bad idea to invest in home improvements that can increase the value of your home when it is put on the market.

White or Off-White

Whites look food for most homes and landscapes. In fact, according to surveys, nearly 40% of people like white as an exterior colour choice. An effective strategy with white paints is to use darker colours for the shutters and trim to make them stand out. Keep in mind, there are many different shades of white. Be sure to try a few different samples before making a decision.


Like whites, taupe will work with almost any landscape. Taupe is a warm, inviting colour that can convey that feeling to potential buyers of your home.


Despite grey’s connotations with rainy days and gloomy moods, grey is an extremely popular colour choice both on the interior of your home and the exterior of your home. It’s a strong, neutral colour choice. Light or dark greys can be used to suit your preferences.


Blue-grey is a richer colour than the neutral greys we mentioned, but still an excellent option. Blue-grey is a popular choice for many homes with waterfront lots, but looks great on homes even in the middle of the suburbs.


While it may be a surprising choice for some people, yellow is actually a popular choice for exterior paint on homes. Yellow creates a very welcoming feeling, but you should be cautious when choosing yellow to paint your home’s exterior. Avoid shades that are too bright, and stick with white trim.

Many newer homes are painted in lighter colours, such as the ones listed above. While it’s not a bad idea to paint your home with a darker colour, they tend to work best for older homes in more established neighbourhoods versus newer, modern homes.

When painting your exterior, be sure to keep in mind the colour you’re going to paint your front door. Some of the most popular front door colours are Blue, Green, Black and Red.
