Putting your house on the market this spring? You'll need to polish it up. Some homeowners consider expensive improvements like new bathrooms, siding and more, but something as easy as painting can give you the best return on investment.

Here's how professional home stagers pick interior paint colors, and other expert painting tips for home staging that sells.
