I'm thinking of using this paint. It's called Property Advantage Flat Maintenance 5g I/E White Latex Paint. It's less than $40 for 5 gallons.
It's a flat / latex. The interior is white. I'm repainting it the same color.
The lowes reviews say it's "good for rentals" .
Have you used it?
Here's a link. https://www.lowes.com/pd/Property-Advantage-Flat-M...
I only use Behr or Sherwin William's paint.
It is very expensive to use cheap paint
I love that particular paint - for ceilings. It's a good, flat white but I wouldn't use it for walls. Walls and trim get Sherwin Williams satin and semi gloss in my houses.
I suggest glossy light colored paint even in living area. Wipe off the finger prints when tenants leave. Easy to maintain.
The only paint worse than Behr (their paint/primer combo isn’t as bad as their regular paint) is Glidden IMO. They’re like water when you brush them on. I vote for Sherwin Williams as well, even if it’s the Lowe’s version.
yes. we use this paint in our flips. small linen /coat closets, garage walls and ceilings. people love how "clean" it makes the garages look.
good for ceilings
Looks like it would be good to whitebox a vacant REO to protect from rain, and so it does not look so crappy. i have seen lathe whiteboxed where plaster was missing. cheap short term fix.
Sherwin Williams. Sikkens on the decks and porches.
Save a little now or save a lot latter.
I don't like cheap paint on my rentals, but I do keep an eye out at Lowes for their "oops" paint - 5 gallons for $25. If it's a light pastel, it's great to keep for rentals when needed and I just take the paint back to shake it when I am ready to use it. Single $5 gallons of "oops" are great for accent walls or small bathrooms. I used to use Behr, but Home Depot changed their paint discount policy a couple of years ago so now I mainly go to Lowes.
For the paint snobs - this paint is *made by* Sherwin Williams

@Rema W. You can even take it one step further... Home depot has maintenance paint here in Florida for like $28 a 5 gallon but it is flat white so I buy one quart of high gloss white for like $7, dump it in and mix it all together and when I paint it looks like semigloss and performs well...and I am all in for $35 for 5 gallons.
That sounds like something I gotta try. Thanks for the tip!
