Selecting the right paint color is one of many factors that may affect why a home sells faster or for more money. Walls painted in cool neutrals like blue or gray have broad appeal, and may be signals that the home is well cared for or has other desirable features.

Sellers can also consult Zillow’s Owners Dashboard to see in real time how their listing is performing compared to similar ones on the market.
