Neutrals sell homes

In today's trying economy, more people in the U.S. and throughout Canada are trying to down-size their homes in order to spend within their current means. When attempting to sell a home, there are certain tricks to up the buyers' interest, such as placing clutter in storage, or putting a fresh coat of paint on the walls in each room, MoneyVille.com reports.

According to the source, staging the home correctly is the best way to sell it. This means removing any trinkets or specialty furniture and putting it in self storage facilities, as sellers need the home to look like anyone could live there. In the same regard, sellers will want to keep the rooms neutral and appealing. A buyer might be shocked to find a house with a different color paint in every room and it may be crazy enough to turn them away altogether.

To curb this issue, sellers should either hire painters to bring their homes back to a place of peace and comfort or do it themselves. Part of this process may include storing certain pieces and if sellers are paying for painters, they'll want to look for the most affordable self storage in Toronto that also has great security and safety features.

The Marin Independent Journal reports that painting the walls in neutral tones leaves room for pops of color through accent pillows and area rugs without overwhelming potential buyers.
