For years I’ve been keeping track of the popularity of house colors and their changes from year to year. Here are the results for 2013 and below that is the chart for the previous year so you can see the changes. Keep in mind that Sudbury is a leafy, colonial New England town with a total of 242 homes sold in 2o13 and that the residents generally tend toward colonial colors and furnishings.
You will see that compared to 2012, for the major colors: white has dropped slightly; tan is the same; and gray is up. For the minor colors: yellow and blue are down; green and brown are up; and red is the same.
In a follow-up blog I will be answering the question – “What color houses sell the quickest and is it worth it to repaint my house before I put it on the market?”
