They say a person’s favorite color can say a lot about their personality. So I was thinking that if agents paid attention to the colors of the walls in a home when we are at a listing appointment they just might give us insight as to the kind of clients we will be working with. What do your walls say about you?
White: White represents sterility, purity, innocence, freshness and simplicity. You must be simple right to work with right?
Red: Red is the color of strength. This color is usually chosen by aggressive, outgoing and impulsive individuals. They may be athletic and have a zest for life. These people are usually optimistic therefore bringing positive energy to the selling field. However, if you love red and your real estate agent loves red you just might see red!
Pink: Pink is tranquil and symbolizes love and affection without the passion. These people like to feel loved and secure. Share the love with your agent.
Orange: Orange appeals to fun loving and very social people. These people usually get along well with others are good natured, popular and try hard to be agreeable. You would be a fun client!
Yellow: Yellows go with the flow. This is the color of happiness, intellectual, cheerful and optimistic. They usually have a strong sense of humor and a good business head on their shoulders. Sounds like my kind of client!
Green: Green symbolizes nature, calm, relaxing and restful. It is the color of harmony creating balance. This color also represents hope and peace. These people tend to be affectionate, moral, and loyal. Security and stability are important to them and they finish what they start. You will be in it for the long run!
Blue: Blues are faithful, compassionate and caring. They are self-controlled, patient and sensitive, but are often worriers and can be too cautious, and suspicious. You may need me to take you by the hand and help you make decisions.
Purple: Purple is eclectic. These people are witty individuals with a strong sense to be unique and different. They love wealth and sophistication and may be artistic. I may want to hire you to decorate my home=)
Brown: Browns tend to be very solid, conscientious, dependable, reliable and kind. These clients will have stamina and patience for the long run, but can be inflexible. Scheduling showings may be difficult, but when you say “Sure, come on over.” I can rely on you to have a clean home.
Gray: Grays are cool and professional. They are characterized as having good business abilities and work too much with little reward. Gray is the color of caution and compromise so you will probably be able to close the deal!
Black: Black symbolizes authority and power submissive. They have the appearance of being dignified and private without being flashy. You will gladly let me take the reign and handle my business.
What if the walls were already painted when you bought the house? What are they saying about you? Do you need to paint=) Maybe you should consider asking a real estate agent what their favorite color is before you schedule that appointment…LOL!
