What does 3 days of freezing rain, in the middle of April have to do with? Well considering my phone hasn't stopped ringing for the last seventy two hours, I suppose it's the beginning of the real estate selling season in Halton. Ok so look potential customers, I'm easy and I'm flexible but I can't fit everything in all at once. So if your about to list give me a call, I will come over and do a walk through with you, and we can decide together whats most important to fix up. Yes holes in walls should not be over looked. Yes big nasty stains and black marks on kitchen ceiling should be cleaned up.
Obviously, because your not going to reap the benefit or long term pleasure of the paint work, your looking to minimize the overall expense. What I'm finding as I do walk throughs is some lower trafficked areas have held up well, and other high traffic areas, not so much. So if you have, the 'actual and original paint' we can cut corners and blend, saving money and time.
So heres a solution that seems to be working with these pre-sale homes. You cover the cost of paint and all materials, and I'm just billing my subcontractor and myself out at a flat daily rate. This way when you or your spouse or realtor change your mind and decide you need something else refinished at a moments notice, you will have a fairly good idea of what it's going to cost. Of course if you want those details your going to need to call me direct.
And yes in my humble opinion, homes that are showing as best in class will sell for top dollar, while homes that require work will be overlooked in this competitive market. I'm hearing this daily.
Sorry this is a short blog tonight, gotta work. Have a wonderful day, best wishes to you and your family and we hope to hear from you soon.
