reVISION Custom Home Renovations’ Todd Senft contributes to Sarah Megginson’s article “5 DIY Renos to Get Instant Equity” in the October 2012 issue of Canadian Real Estate Magazine.
With a little know-how, a bit of cash and a whole lot of energy, you can transform a tired, bland property into an appealing home. We turned to the experts for advice on their most profitable renovations, where the largest investment is sweat equity Sarah Megginson reports.
It’s no secret that the quickest and easiest way to add value to your property is through painting it, says Todd Senft from reVISION Renovations. This is because your total investment on a DIY paint job will pale in comparison to the added value it creates, as Senft places the average return on internal painting at 73%, and external painting at 65%.
“Pending the square footage of the home, the paint materials would range from about $750 to $1,250 for a full interior repaint. This includes either a rental cost on a paint sprayer or purchasing rollers, pans and drop clothes,” Senft says.
I want to thank you again for the great service you have personally provided from start to finish of our project. It has been very much enjoyed and appreciated.
I would be happy to speak with any future prospective customers on your and your companies behalf.
We have undertaken several projects over the past couple of years using your company’s services and have found you to be attentive to our needs and concerns, responsive to our requests, and as efficient as the busy construction industry can under existing conditions.
