When Zero is a Good Thing

October 17, 2012

One of the most cost effective ways to improve the resale value of your home is to give it a fresh coat of paint. Most designers recommend using neutral tones picked from this year’s most popular color palette.

Eco-friendly” is a popular feature with today’s buyers. One inexpensive way to go “green” is to use paint with less of the VOCs (volatile organic compounds) that are found in standard paints. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, VOCs are chemicals that are emitted as gases from certain solids or liquids, some of which may have short or long-term adverse health effects. Low VOC paints are not only healthier, but they don’t leave that lingering paint odor inside your house.

The right paint job can take years off the overall look and feel of your home. Using low or zero VOC paint can be also be a great selling point. Be sure to talk to your REALTOR about what colors and paints will make the best impression.
