Ive been thinking a lot about life's purpose a lot the last week. I was watching some inspirational videos on Youtube, and it got me to thinking that I might be able to accomplish two things at once and enhance our service offering. What I will be implementing later in the day on our pricing page will easily outline this. To be honest it's just an idea and it may be geared more towards seniors and estate sales, but may have some wider reaching appeal.
Simply put were willing to delay our gratification for customers who may need our service the most. If a person needs to sell there property for whatever reason, but lacks the funds to 'spruce' it up, which includes complete paintwork and cleanup we will wait for payment until the property closes. Ive done some research on the idea, and the only painting companies that wait for payment are typically commercial painters on contract. This is different and more broad and open to the general public. The idea was born out of a conversation I had recently with a prominent local realtor. A client of there's, Ms. X. who managed to hold onto her property after a lengthy divorce, decided that she needed a new life and new scenery with her child. Her equity in that property was less than 25%. Her realtor advised her that she should really consider getting the house painted and carpets cleaned before listing, for maximum value. Not having money Ms. X headed to her local bank to secure a small sum of money for the necessary repairs. After speaking to her 'financial specialist' she realized that this was going to be an excrushiating process. And although she would ultimately get the funds she needed, it would waste precious time, especially listing in the brisk spring market. The delays and aggravation seemed like more than they were worth. But as we all know, in the end, financially speaking it's always worth it. Needless to say she got the money, got the repairs and sold her house.
But I would say, life should not be so complicated. So for the purpose of helping others, and greasing the wheels to speed up the process, if your short of funds and are selling your property or about to sell, we will help diminish the burden of securing alternative funds. I do hope on a personal level I'm able to help at-least one person, if not many with the idea. You will see the update shortly on my pricing page.
