The paint colours that can raise a home’s price

If you’re trying to sell your home and your front door isn’t painted black you might be leaving as much as US$6,271 on the table, according to some new number crunching from the U.S. online real estate listings service Zillow Group. The study, released in June, has a lot of caveats attached, but does suggest there may be bottom-line benefits to certain colour choices in certain rooms. To be clear, the data do not mean you should go out and start repainting every room in your house: For one, it’s derived from U.S. home sales only, and secondly, the data come from a statistical model that may not account for all the relevant variables.
