One of the most important rules of thumb when you’re preparing to sell your North Shore home is to look at it from a buyer’s point of view, not just from your own. Nowhere is that truer than in the wall colors you choose. You may love strong colors and have a very stylish décor that goes with them, but color can present several drawbacks when it comes to sell your North Shore home.
Of course, that doesn’t mean you should always paint all the rooms boring beige before you put a house on the market. In fact, that could conceivably have the opposite effect, making a house seem plain-Jane (especially if it’s limited in architectural detail or is under-furnished). The ideal is to choose colors with just the right touch of life to them: neutral enough to present a blank canvas, but interesting enough to add some character. Some picks from the experts include the following colors for all around livability and great for resale on your North Shore home.

- Accessible Beige, by Sherwin-Williams
