Do you need a painter? I recommend the best one: Danilo

Danilo is my son in law and has been painting since he was 12, going to various
job sites with his dad. Weekends were often spent at work, and this is possibly the foundation for his work ethic.

He has mastered his skills since then, with over 20 years in the industry, and everyone who has used Danilo’s services is
extremely satisfied.

Danilo is also very professional, reliable, and leaves his jobs in a neat condition. I know this because I’m even hired him to paint my own house!
All my clients has reported their satisfaction too.

Aside from being a painter/decorator, his years in the trade industry have left him with other skills too. Need pictures hung, cabinets assembled, various things repaired, or just a fresh coat of paint around the place?

How to maximise your selling price

21 December 2016
Author: REIWA President Hayden Groves

Often home owners who decide to sell finally get around to completing jobs around the house they had been intending to do for years.

Fixing the paving, painting the front fence and repairing the side gate are typical examples of ‘little’ jobs that fit into the “I must get to that one day” category.

The little jobs matter
When preparing your home for sale, these ‘little’ jobs are important in achieving an expedient sale at the highest possible selling price. This is because buyers typically notice the little jobs too; an ill-fitting gate is easily and cheaply repaired, yet can loom large in the buyer’s mind as a more major problem that hints at other areas of the property being neglected.

Beware of over-capitalising
Of course, you need to be cautious about “over-capitalising” when preparing to sell. Replacing a bathroom and renovating a kitchen are expensive and, depending on the property and its location, may prove counterproductive in the effort to achieve the best price.

For example, if you were to take a quality home on a lot worth $700,000 in a suburb where the median house price was of that same value, then investing in a new kitchen and bathroom that cost, say, $80,000 may not be the best idea, as it is probably more difficult to sell that property at $800,000. This is partly because it is already above the suburb’s median house price.

Conversely, an original cottage in a well-established affluent suburb is more likely to benefit from renovations when preparing to sell due to the higher demand for “finished” properties in those sought-after areas.

How to present your home for sale
Obviously, each property and circumstance engenders a variety of options for sellers when preparing to sell, and opinions from real estate agents on the matter are, as always, subjective.

In general terms however, presenting a clean and tidy home is always going to help your cause in selling at the best price.

A client once suggested to me that you should “present it like you don’t live in it” – which is probably a fair description.

Paint out bright colours on internal walls, de-clutter by storing away trinkets and excess family photos, clear the fridge of magnets and kids’ school art and place items neatly in storage cupboards.

Small things do make a difference. Paint and gardens are two areas of focus that can make a disproportionate difference to the selling price (relative to their cost and the effort involved).

These tasks can usually be completed by the seller themselves which helps keep costs down and can make an amazing difference to the presentation of the home and therefore the price of the property.

I’ve just GOT to tell you about my 3 favourite tradesmen

Gilberto is my personal “Edward Scissorhands”

He is so talented! He has 5 hedges in his front garden shaped like chairs.
It comes to him naturally as I watched him shaping my hedges and trees in my garden.
Gilberto does a lot of things in the garden, so I usually recommend him to my clients.

Bob is my favourite A to Z  Handyman.

I recommend Bob for  fixing gutters, sliding doors not running properly or broken, small touch up jobs, or for practically ANYTHING that has broken in the house.
He puts the ‘handy’ in handyman with his knack of facing things!
He is reliable, honest and reasonable.

Danilo is the best painter ever!

He is my son in law but I am not biased when I say he is the best!
He has been painting since he was 12 years old following his Dad to work. That is a lot of experience as he has continued in that trade since then, recently branching off into his own business.
He works 7 days a week and never looks at what time it is when he is doing a job.
He is professional, clean, reliable and trustworthy.

Let me know if you need their expertise!

 

 

Do you need the best painter for your house. I have one to recommend


Danilo, my son in law, is a very hardworking young man.

He comes from a family of painters. His Dad and his uncles have operated painting businesses both north and south of the river for the last 40 years.

Danilo followed in his father’s footsteps starting with going to work with his Dad on weekends at the tender age of 12.

He is a very professional painter and now, after 20 years in the painting industry, he is starting his own Painter Decorator/Handyman business and that is the reason I am promoting him in my newsletter.

If you need a painter who is reliable, professional and clean, or just have some odd jobs around the house that need doing, give Danilo a call.
