Teammate, Gina Barton provides valuable information on paint selections for 2022:

When preparing your home to sell, your realtor may recommend re-painting or updating the paint colors in some of your rooms. You may ask yourself, does this really matter? YES, it does! First impressions are everything and many buyers may not be able to think beyond what they see or have the vision to make it their own. Neutral colors can make a space feel larger and fresher which is why they appeal to a wide range of people and make it easier for buyers to visualize themselves living in your home.

Picking the right paint colors can feel overwhelming, but as part of the pre-listing process, your realtor can assist you on finding the colors that will work best for your space.There are also a multitude of tools available to help you with your decisions. Many popular paint brands like Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams have tools on their website such as free virtual consultations and 360 degree experiences that will allow you to fully explore colors before making a decision. Once you narrow down your choices, there are companies such as Samplize which allow you to purchase non damaging 9″ x 14.75″ peel and stick squares to help you make a decision you are confident with. Each square comes at a cost of $5 and the convenience of no clean up and an accurate depiction of what the colors will look like when actually painted on the wall.
