How A Coat Of Paint Could Make You Thousands!

STOP! Don’t sell your home until you read this!

If you’re selling your house, no doubt you want the highest offer possible, right? Of course! By turning a larger profit now, you’re securing your future!

Did you know, with a few professional coats of paint and the right paint specialist, you can actually increase the value of your home by thousands of dollars? Oh, you read that right… Not hundreds, but THOUSANDS of dollars!

Surprised? Don’t be!

It’s actually pretty logical when you think about it.

Imagine you’re a new growing family looking for the perfect home to start your life. You step into your dream home. It’s a spacious 4 bedroom house with 2 bathrooms, a large kitchen, big backyard, and a park across the street. It’s seemingly perfect with one small catch; the previous tenants had good taste, but the walls look a bit worn.

You begin to take a closer look as you tour the house, and it becomes clear: it needs a serious repaint. The back splash on the kitchen is stained from years of home-cooked meals, and you can see where the table sat against the wall. The baseboards are scuffed from years of rough play and crazy pets. You go to the bathroom, and instantly you see the built up damage from years of condensation. The master bedroom is great, but the closet door is peeling at the bottom, and the paint colour in the smaller bedrooms is a bit dark. Now that you have kids, you are set on having a bright room to help grow their even brighter minds! This is a well loved house filled with fond memories, but they aren’t your memories.

It’s an expensive buy, but worth it to invest in your long term family home! Or, is it?

You start thinking about the cost of renovations… You’re hoping to move in soon, and you know repainting is a big job. You can’t possibly do it yourself, and know you will have to hire a professional painter. Not only that, but if you invest in this home, you will have to take time out of your already jam packed day to research prices, trusted paint specialists, and non-toxic paint brands. You are looking to move in right after the current homeowners move out, but if you do, then you have to manoeuvre your family around for days while trying to keep the kids occupied. If you wait to move in, you will have to pay for either another month of rent, or a week at a hotel; neither of those are an expense you want to add to your budget.

The price of raising a family is already high, so you immediately start thinking of how you can cut down on costs. Since you have to do all this work yourself, the first thing you think of is asking for a reduced cost on the house. The second option is finding another house all together.

That doesn’t sound ideal for the homeowner, does it. That means it wouldn’t be ideal for you either!

Now, imagine you walk into the same house, but this time, the walls are stunning and bright. Each room feels more open and clean. It’s move in ready and perfect just the way it is! A fresh start for a new family to create exciting new memories! Now, this is worth the investment…this is a home!

You might be thinking, Wait? Now your telling me I have to repaint my house?!

Well, you don’t have to do anything, but it sure would go a long way in securing your sale at the right price for you! With the right paint specialists, it doesn’t have to cost you an arm and leg, and you will see a favourable profit return!

How To Choose A Paint Expert Like A Pro

You’ve finally decided it’s time for a change of scenery! The kitchen looks dreary, the living room drab, and we won’t even mention the bathroom: enough is enough! You pick up your phone and google Top house painters in Edmonton, Alberta, but there are so many to choose from. How do you decide? That’s where we come in!

You see, here at The Repaint Specialists Ltd, we don’t just care about your house, we care about you! The last thing we want is you feeling like you’ve made a poor choice in your investment. So, we are going to let you in on a little secret!

These are our ‘Top 5 Traits To Look For’ when choosing the best paint specialist for you! 

Do they:

1. Use High Quality Paints: When you choose to have your walls painted, you want them treated with the highest quality product there is. Don’t settle for cheap knock offs that save you a little money now, but force you to spend lots more later! Look for deluxe paint brands such as Benjamin Moore, Cloverdale,Sherwin-Williams and Behr, just to name a few.

2. Have A Warranty: A real professional takes pride in their work and puts their money where their mouth is! If you aren’t happy, they aren’t happy. If their work is as high quality as they are boasting, they shouldn’t be afraid to back it up with a guarantee!

3. Clean up: The worst part about hiring a paint contractor, or any contractor for that matter, is the fear that your home won’t be as clean as it was before you left. We’ve all heard the horror stories: “I came home and found paint chips on my carpet, I was cleaning up sanding dust for days, and they scratched my new hardwood while moving the fridge!” Make sure your paint specialist knows how important it is to keep your house as clean –if not cleaner– than it was before they arrived!

4. Act Reliably: Unreliability is a big deal breaker! When you choose a paint company, you need to know they will provide open communication, be there when they say they will, and won’t leave you hanging! Your time is valuable, and a true professional will know that!

5. Have A Good Reputation: When it comes to reputation, look no further than your own community! If you’re in Sherwood Park, then check out what the locals of Sherwood Park and St. Albert are saying! You want to make sure the quality is consistent, so don’t be afraid to ask for a list of references!

So, now that you know what to look for, you may be asking yourself where do I look?

Obviously, you can start by checking out websites, and reading google reviews! However, don’t discredit the value of word of mouth, and be sure to pick up the phone, and call the paint specialists your most interested in. When you get off the phone, you should feel that when you invest in them, they invest twice as much in you!
