Getting Your Los Angeles Real Estate Ready for Market
You probably already know that to give your Los Angeles Real Estate the best chance of selling quickly and for top dollar it needs to be visually appealing from the moment potential buyers arrive outside your door.
Getting your Los Angeles home ready for market, you need to de-clutter, clean-up, fix-up, and possibly make a few changes to give it a more modern appeal.
Small changes such as new cabinet hardware, new toilet seats, new faucets in kitchen and bath, and new light fixtures can completely change the “appeal factor” in a room.
So can fresh paint, especially if your current paint colors are dated.
So what’s the Los Angeles real estate latest for 2015?
Gray is the new neutral. In shades from pale to charcoal, grey is the backdrop for decorating themes from simple and homespun to outrageous or ultra-modern. It’s even showing up in hardwood floors.
And what about color? Sage green is dominating many color schemes this year, as is the Pantone Color Institute’s “Color of the Year” for 2015 – Marsala. You’ll be seeing this color in household design, fashion, and even marketing campaigns. Stock photographers are right now gearing up to work Marsala into the photos that will be used in advertising, on blogs, and in magazine articles. So what IS Marsala?
It’s a reddish/brown – not quite a maroon, but almost. Click here to see it for yourself.
Sage green is one you probably recognize – a dusty green that comes in shades from barely “not white” to deep. Since green is a restful color, use it in rooms made for relaxation. You’d be better off NOT using it in the master bath or the powder room, as greens aren’t the most flattering color for facial skin tones. A light shade of Marsala would be a better choice there.
