  1. This is disturbing evidence considering we spend most of our time indoors. Interiors have much higher pollution levels, and toxic paint is a big cause of that. Airborne chemicals are released during painting, after the paint is dry, and as paint is removed. Harmful compounds in the VOC category range from formaldehyde to pesticides to cleaning chemicals. It is therefore important to choose low-VOC paints which are in any case comparable in price to other paints. ™ Environmental concerns and eco-consciousness have influenced home-owners to seek out paints that are low in volatile organic compounds and have minimal impact on the environment. In fact all house paints sold in the US need to follow laws regarding volatile organic compounds to ensure they release the least amount of toxic emissions. Earlier generations of lead-based paints posed a definitive health risk. While removing old paint from walls, test for lead and if the old paint tests positive for this harmful toxin, contact a professional paint company to clear your home of this contaminant. Painting contractors are receiving increased requests for eco-friendly paints. Major paint manufacturing companies are stocking up on environment friendly paints. Green paints that contribute to a sustainable environment are developed while conserving precious natural resources, with less energy consumption, and less pollution producing processes. Allergies or sensitivities to these paints are less and are the safest for you and for the environment Choose house paints that do not emit toxins and contain no harmful solvents, preservatives, dryers or other irritants that can contribute to poor indoor air quality and endanger human health. In other words opt for paints that emit little or no VOC's. If you are looking out for house paints that care about a sustainable environment, approach a paint company that will be amenable to finding alternative materials to satisfy your eco-friendly preferences and which have a range of eco-friendly options. Custom Painting, a Bay area based painting company offers a palette of rich, warm hues using the highest quality Kelly-Moore Paints. e-coat paint by Kelly Moore contains 50 to 80 percent recycled paint. Kelly Moore developed the e-coat operating division to provide a safer, more environmental friendly way to dispose of leftover latex paints. Custom painting undertakes paint jobs of both commercial and residential properties and uses paints that contain 'low', 'minimal' or (as classified by the US Environmental Protection Agency) 'Zero VOC' levels. They have been in the business for over 25 years offering quality painting solutions from its experienced team of painters, delivering customized quality painting solutions to each and every project. In the age of the Internet, especially with the ability to see a home through a complete virtual tour, more people

  2. are using the online sources in order to "view" and find homes that they're interested in buying more than any other method. However, don't write off the classic open house quite yet. A study conducted by Realtor Magazine showed that 20% of potential buyers looking at low- to mid-range homes use open houses to decide what home they actually want to purchase. That number jumps to 30% for luxury and upper price range homes. This shows that there's still value and advantages to holding an open house during your selling process. But this isn't the end of that decision. Now, the real work begins. An open house means allowing a large amount of strangers into your home in hopes that it will convince them it should become their home. The best way to do that is to make them feel comfortable, show them the best parts of the home, and help them visualize themselves living there. How do you do that? A real estate agent is a great asset for planning, organizing, and staging your home for an open house since they've done this before and they know what the potential buyers are looking for. There are things you can do in order to prepare your home for an open house to make it as successful as possible. Keep reading for a brief open house checklist to help you get started. Beginning a few days before the open house, it's time to put in a little (actually, a lot) of elbow grease. You want to wash the floors, wipe down your windows/mirrors, clean the counters, vacuum, and more to make everything look "spick and spam." Put in that little extra effort to really impress the potential buyers. Not only will the cleanliness make your home look and feel better, but it will also help you to highlight some of your home's best qualities. Does your home have amazing hardwood floors? Putting in that extra effort to make sure they're buffed and shiny will highlight that attribute. What about a skylight window or large windows that overlook an amazing view? Ensuring that these are clear and streak-free will brighten the home and show off an awesome quality. Don't forget about cleaning the outside of your home, too. Power wash the driveway, mow the lawn, pick up any trash/twigs/branches in the yard, dispose of any dog poop, touch up any chipping paint, etc. On the topic of the outside of your home, curb appeal is extremely important for your open house. Curb appeal refers to the impression your home makes as someone looks at it from, well, the curb. The exterior of the home, your yard, your driveway, your fence, your mailbox - all of these make impacts on the

  3. first impression your potential buyers have of your house. Take the time to get these things perfect. As we said before, wash your driveway, mow your lawn, keep up with your garden, and other cleaning tasks like that. But you should also take note of the overall appearance. Has it been a while since your home's gotten a fresh coat of paint? Consult with an exterior paint color expert to see whether a new color palette or even just some new trim can improve your home's look. Also make sure you maintain your pathways, update your plants, clean your gutters, and touch-up paint on your fences, railings, and mailbox. Speaking of paint, it's a good idea to update (or at least think about updating) your interior paint as well. Color trends and themes have likely changed since you bought your house, not to mention that it's likely there are scuffs, stains, and fading after the home has been lived in. Think of colors and themes that are classic for the market you're going for. Perhaps you're aiming to sell to young families who will appreciate millennial pink. Or maybe, on the other hand, you're aiming at older generations who prefer a more mature or simple color scheme. This is where a paint color specialist will help you. They'll be able to tell you what colors will work best for your market as well as which colors will make the rooms look their best. Color can increase light, highlight important aspects in the home, and add life to the space. A color expert will help you make those decisions and get your home in the best shape before the open house. As you spruce up your home and make it look as good as possible, you also want to be creating as neutral of a space as possible. What do we mean by that? We mean that you need to depersonalize the space. Take down your family pictures, remove specific or personal trinkets/decor, and have your pets/kids leave the home for the day of the open house. In fact, unless you're selling the house on your own, it's best that you not be present, either. Some agents even ask homeowners to leave the premises completely during a property's first listing weekend so the house can be clear for follow-up visits after an open house later on in the weekend or even the same day. Potential buyers want to see themselves in the home. Seeing images of the current owners disrupts their visualization of themselves there, which can hinder their experience. Also, if you're present, they may not be honest with how they feel or honestly inspect every aspect of the home for fear of offending you/your home. Your best bet is to create a blank slate that will allow viewers to truly see themselves living there and start to feel like it's their home. It's not easy to prepare your home for an open house, especially with work, kids, and life taking up most of your time. Staging services can help you set up your home in a way that will be best suited for selling. These types of services will help you arrange furniture, create that "blank slate" we mentioned earlier, place candles, remove decor/trinkets, and other things to create the perfect open house. It's hard for the homeowner to take a step back and be unbiased when setting up the open house.

  4. Why should you remove your favorite art piece from the living room or rearrange your furniture in the bedrooms? You like it that way! But staging services are experts and will be able to view each room with an unbiased eye to give you the best chance at impressing potential buyers. List open house checklist is far from comprehensive, but it does give you a general idea of the things you'll need to think about and do in order to have a successful open house. The big things to keep in mind are: keep things tidy, keep things neutral, and make the potential buyers feel, well, at home! If you can do those things, you're setting yourself up for a successful sale.
