just sell it program
Selling your home?
Repainting your home prior to selling is one of the most cost effective ways to increase the value of your home and/or improve your chances for a quick sale. In this program, our superior service commitment is matched with a quick turnaround. Upon your request, we will have a crew at your home within 2-3 days. Our experience in real estate and flipping homes will provide the expertise to focus on areas for improvement.
In terms of painting your home prior to selling, less is more. If your walls are already light and neutral but are looking worn consider matching the color and applying only one coat. Touching up woodwork and doors if they are only a little marked up is also a good idea. As a result, potential buyers will not be able to discount the price of your home. Our goal is to make your home move-in ready.
Check out some of our past projects below:
We purchased this home in November 2006 for $350,000 and then sold it in July 2006 for $435,000. It was a fun project and as you can see from the pictures we totally transformed this home.
This home was listed in June of 2009. After a month on the market and no offers and unfavourable feedback, most of the home was repainted with a neutral grey tan colour. A week later the property was sold.
When we purchased this house in 2002, the basement was unfinished. To maximize the 1,369 space, we had to remove some walls and add some posts and beams. We also had to do some jack hammering for plumbing purposes. In the end, we ended up with a bachelor suite that rented out for $650 a month, a powder room for upstairs use, an office, and a recreation room, with a wet bar utilizing the space under the stairs.
This was a really fun project. When we purchased this home in 2008, the only way to access this room was from the outside; the 400 sq ft space had been added to the home a few years prior. For $700 we had someone saw through the foundation making the accessible from the main part of the house.
There were bulk heads on 2 of the walls of the room to provide for ducting so we added bulk heads to the rest of the walls to balance out the room. We also installed numerous pot lights on 2 different sets of dimmers for mood lighting. We matched the slate flooring from the main part of the house to establish continuity. The coffered ceiling really finished off the room. We painted all the mouldings to match the bar we had purchased from Home Billiards.
Shearwater Great Room
When we purchased this home in 2008, the coffered ceilings and columns were already installed and painted. However, settling had occurred and there were cracks where all the wood was joined together and caulking issues. We used a combination dap and bondo to fix all the issues and then spot primed and re sprayed all the wood work. As you can see there was a lot masking to do.
The cabinetry in the dining area was white with knobs so we painted them brown, antiqued them with black and then clear coated them. We then replaced the knobs with handles.
The kitchen cabinetry was a little worn in areas so we antiqued them and clear coated with a satin lacquer finish.
