Popular Exterior Paint Colors for Selling Your Home

When you are in the market to sell your home, one of the most important factors to consider is your home’s curb appeal. When a potential buyer pulls up to your home, the exterior is one of the first things they will see. Like in life, first impressions are very important and can impact the whole perception a buyer will make of your home. Your favorite dream home might be a white with bright blue trim, but this is not everyone’s favorite. Using a bold and unique mix of colors can make a home stand out in a negative way. If you are trying to decide on a color for your potential listing, consider these tips for selecting an exterior paint color.

When choosing a paint color to use on the exterior of your home that you are about to sell, there are many things to consider. First off, remember that you are not choosing the color you want, but a color that would appeal to the mass. To figure out the best option, take a look at the color schemes of your neighbor’s homes, your home’s architectural style, roof color, stonework and landscaping and construction materials. You want to keep up with the trends, however, you do not want to do anything too stylish or off-the-wall. A good choice is to go with warm, earthy neutral colors that blend well with your home’s natural environment. A classic that never goes out of style is classic white which is both simple and traditional.

There are other options, but you need to consider them carefully to make sure they fit. Charcoals and blacks are popular nowadays, especially on a modern home, but make sure these are not too bold for your neighborhood. Navy blue has also become a popular choice and can be used on a variety of home styles. If you can’t go without a pop of color, think about adding a bold color to your front door such as red, yellow or blue.

Remember seeking out your Realtor’s advice can be a win-win situation. A local sales agent will not only be familiar with what is trending but will also know what will fit on your home in your neighborhood.

This Year’s Southern Living 2022 Idea House Is Located in North Carolina

This year Southern Living chose River Dunes which is located in Oriental, North Carolina for their 2022 Idea House.  The community features 14 miles of waterfront on the Pamlico Sound, Intercoastal Waterway and the mouth of the Neuse River.  River Dunes offers wonderful amenities which include a 400-slip marina.
The home represents coastal living at its best and was brought to life by a team including Jordan Maroules of SLD Custom Homes, Charlotte Lucas of Charlotte Lucas Interior Design and William Court of Court Atkins Group.
“Our vision was to create a Southern ‘coastal-inspired’ home that has a strong traditional sense of place-but a slightly more contemporary sense of detail,” says architect William Court.
The home features multiple structures instead of just one which includes a guest home.  The main house sits at 4,125 square feet and includes a wraparound porch for outdoor living.  The porch gives a nice harbor view with great space for outdoor entertainment.  The exteriors are constructed of James Hardie siding which will stand up to the harsh coastal elements.
“While we are blessed with unparalleled beauty in the Southeast, the climate comes with humidity, moisture, salt air and pests. We love using Hardie fiber cement products in southern coastal areas because they hold their own in rain, sleet or snow. This allows us to provide our clients with a great low-maintenance and sustainable alternative to natural wood siding. Anytime we can get the look and feel of natural wood without the headache of ongoing maintenance, that’s a win, ” says Court.
The siding design used on the home is the Artisan shiplap siding by James Hardie.  “In our more contemporary coastal designs, we want to blend the use of historical proportions and familiar colors with unexpected details and clean lines. Our design team relies heavily on the range of products by James Hardie to create realistic historical details, as well as updated contemporary profiles with a sense of weight and proportion. Using the Artisan shiplap siding with mitered corners was a natural choice to get a crisp clean edge-but with an elevated sense of detail,” says Court.
The 2022 Southern Living 2022 house will only be on tour until the end of the month.  Currently the home is decorated for the holidays and can be toured by purchasing a ticket. All the proceeds will go to local charities.
