Paint your industrial building to help sell or lease it quickly!

These days, with so many empty industrial buildings available, building owners and ICI real estate agents need all the help they can get to find a new owner or tenant. We've been told over and over again how critical our painting work was to improve the esthetic appearance inside buildings -- and make them sell.

Recently, an agent told us this:
"The interior was smelly, dark, dirty, and looked all broken up with some areas painted different colours or not painted at all. Painting the ceiling, walls and floor instantly took it from the 1950s to 2010. It now not only looks clean and bright, but it doesn’t smell like a dirty, oily factory anymore. Without doing this, we would never have moved this property. My client deciding to paint with my persuasion was the best thing he could have done. Painting made our building stand out from the rest as a location of choice. It was a quick, cheap fix for getting someone in."

Another agent recounted that he said to his building owner client that:
"He only has one chance to get a prospective buyer to a building. Bringing the buyer back after doing a cleanup is often a tough sell. First impressions are critical, so it’s imperative to do it right the first time. A lot of times, I only get one kick at the can."

We can't understand why building owners and agents don’t act faster to clean up a building when going to market. A lot of buildings are left looking terrible for many months before the owners realize what they are missing out on. They lose a fortune! Plus, in a declining market, the longer they leave it, the price they end up getting often just keeps getting lower and lower. Painting is always a very wise move and an excellent investment.
