Warren Buffet does tend to know a thing or two about real estate. And Warren believes (I can call him Warren) that employment will rise when real estate does. You think he’s right? It’s not just Warren that believes that, but many other economists do as well and for good reason. History has proven time and time again that the economy will rebound and employment will rise when the housing market recovers.

So what does all that have to do with putting some color on those walls? Well, if you believe Warrent Buffet and are making plans to sell your Portland home in 2012 and you look around the house and see all white or off white walls…please paint them before putting the home on the market. It’s one of those easy, low cost things you can do to make a home look a hundred times better. And I don’t want to hear, “but the buyer will just want to change them to their liking anyways! So what’s the point?” The point is getting the home sold. And a buyer will immediately feel more at home when they walk into a house with color on the walls than stark white cold walls.

Do you have a difficult time picking colors and knowing what would look best? Let me know and I’m happy to help and make suggestions. Above are a few photos from a home stager in Washington D.C. of rooms with color before staging and the rooms after staging.
