Painting Condo Unit for Sale: What is the Best Colour?

The best colour to use for sale of condo is white.

Below are our reasonings since we have painted condos and HDBs in Singapore for several years.

Firstly, white makes your room look bigger than it looks. You could use other colours like off-whites, light neutrals, pales, and pastels to make your room have a bigger effect too. But we will still recommend using white as we continue on our reasonings below.

Second, it makes your room bright. Even if one particular room is shadier, the white would help to bright up the room when you switch on the room light.

Third, when a potential buyer comes to view your condo, they could easily paint over their new condo with their preferred colour, if they decide to purchase from you. Strong colours like red, yellow, and black are not recommended. It will be best to use a neutral colour like white when selling your condo.

Fourth, it makes your room look neater. Of course, you will have to do your part to pack things up, so when a potential buyer views, they would have some assurances that you takes care of your condo, and most probably would not have any pest or maintenance issues.

Lastly, it makes you more money from the selling of your condo. If your condo’s initial price is $2 million, and you deal at $2.1 million. You made an additional close to $100 thousand when you spent less than about $2 thousand for painting.
