Every neighborhood has that one house that is painted a bold color and stands out like a sore thumb. Maybe it looks great or maybe all the neighbors secretly hate it. Regardless, homes that stand out as stylish or heavily renovated will be targeted because of the perceived value of what’s inside.

In order to make your house invisible in plain sight, you need to rely on neutral colors instead. Choosing neutral options for your paint, shutters, gutters and everything else will allow your home to blend in and become less of a target.
