Best Indoor Paint???

We are moving into our new house this weekend and the walls are terrible!. What is the best brand of paint to use? One that you only have to use one coat.

Welcome to the forums!

That's a difficult question to answer. A lot depends on what type of paint is needed. The best coating for one job isn't necessarily a good choice for another. You'll always find a better selection at your local paint store as opposed to a paint dept. Generally most any brand's mid line or better paint will give good results. The better paints tend to cover better than their cheaper counterpart but there is a limit to how much one coat of paint can do. I'd suggest going to one or more of your local paint stores and discussing your options with them.

Depending on the definition of 'terrible' the walls could need cleaning and/or priming before painting - it all depends on the condition of the walls. Some stains require a solvent based primer to seal them before applying latex paint.
