I would like to think that colors are what make the world fun. It is the essence of life and gives substance to a picture. Without it the scenery can be quite dull and lifeless. The same applies when marketing real estate.
Colors can give your service an identity. They can project a specific character or an aura that gives people an idea about your service or company.
We are all admirers of colors. You'll have to think twice if you want to establish your brand when marketing real estate. This can be a game setter when marketing homes.
The most important to remember when thinking about colors is that everyone likes blue. If you can't decide what to use, start with blue. Blue is also the most used color for corporate branding because it represents authority.
A good color combination for Blue is Orange. While Dark Orange can mean dull, the light (pumpkin) color can mean trendy. The websites Homes and ActiveRain should give you an idea of how Orange can blend well with Blue.
Another real estate color favorite is Green. The most common meaning for this color is nature and peace. You can take a look at Zillow and Trulia's logo if you want to see how a touch of Green can complement your brand.
So far I have discussed colors from listing websites but what about Realtors? If you're interested how realtors' brand their services, read below and enjoy.
While DukeRealty favors Black and Green, KellerWilliams and ReMax seems to favor Red. This color (Red) is most commonly associated with love. It can also mean excitement and goes well with White and / or Black.
Have you noticed that Keller Williams was using White to blend with Red? In case you're wondering, the color White usually means purity and balance.
If we look at Pulte Homes' logo we would notice the color Gray to complement their Blue text. Gray is an alternative of Silver that signifies a helping hand. It can also mean prosperity which is a good idea for a home.
Yellow is considered to represent brightness and optimism. It's not a real estate favorite but it does grab people attention. You might consider Yellow if you want people to turn their heads and take a look at your real estate brand.
Still can't decide which colors to use? How about checking Colliers International's logo to see how they made, Blue, White, Yellow, and Red work.
