Here is my house/flip project.
I would leave it how it is and get it on the market sooner. Let the new owners paint if they want.
By the wayPainted brick is HATED in metro Detroit.
White trim, black shudders and a pop of color in the front door(s). Maybe take the storm doors off (store in the garage for the new owner). I would leave the siding above the garage door house color.
LOL Chris Silva. Good to know!
Don't paint brick, once you do its now a bigger maintenance issue. Add some color. A nice medium gray, black, maroon/burgundy could work. Pick a color that works with the roof too. Hard to tell what color the roof is. Go to a paint store and get a color fan wheel and look through there and hold up the fan on the house to see what works. Silver blue may be cool?
Roof is a brown with red tint. It further limits color selection! Thanks everyone.
a sage green will typically work with that color of roof, but you need to accent it and more than just the door, shutters and trim. Usually you want to paint other sections of the siding in a different color or install vinyl cedar shingle shake at the peaks with an accent color. Usually a brown, certain reds and sometimes a darker version of the green can be used.
In general, greens and blues are hard to do on the exterior without other pops of color.
A light to mid tone grey may also work and generally won't require major accents.
Look on Houzz for ideas.
Just wanted to follow up and show what we ended up doing with house. The process certainly has taken a longer on this project. 3 months dealing with eviction + another 3 months waiting for warm weather to complete exterior scope. Anyways, the house is on the market. We have had 30 showings BUT still are waiting for our first offer. Lots of good feedback for the most part. Can't please everyone as you all know!
I will have to upload original photos. It was gross everything 1970's. Nasty carpet/floors, terrible paint in all rooms, popcorn ceilings, trim/doors/hardware all outdated, brutal appliances, ugly light fixtures, bathrooms were rough; garage was a major eyesore, the list goes on and on.
We basically touched all interior surfaces with some sort of upgrade.
