Precision Painting & Decorating Begins Accepting Bitcoin, Litecoin, & Ethereum

America’s First Painting Job Paid For Using Ethereum

 
In December 2017 Precision Painting & Decorating became the first painting contractor in the country to accept payment for a residential painting project in cryptocurrency. With the current buzz surrounding cryptocurrencies, the story was picked up by the International Business Times. The project consisted of an interior repaint in the Chicago suburb of Frankfort, IL. Here’s what homeowner Dan Lundstedt, who paid using the cryptocurrency Ethereum, had to say about the experience:

“Well I have been lucky to be successful with Ethereum in terms of ROI, so I thought why not use it repaint my house? I know Aaron from a previous painting job, we got to talking about it, and here we are. The whole thing was simple because we executed in coinbase without drawing or converting bitcoins into dollars.”

Why did Precision start accepting cryptocurrencies?

 
Sensing that cryptocurrencies, especially Bitcoin and Ethereum, are more than just a fad, Precision decided to make cryptocurrency payments an option starting December 1st. According to owner Aaron Moore, who has been interested in cryptocurrencies for over 3 years, it was time to get the painting world on board with what he sees as a long term trend. He went on to admit there is some risk to accepting the volatile currencies that can drop by 10%, 20%, or more in a single day.

“Cryptocurrencies, especially Bitcoin, are becoming part of the regular vocabulary of everyday people, no different than Uber. With more and more people interested in them and starting to buy them, we figured, why not let a customer pay us in them?” Now we just need to hope they keep increasing in value, or someone could get a once in a lifetime deal on a painting project.

 

What cyrptocurrencies do we accept?

 
Via Coinbase and www.coinpayments.net, Precision Painting & Decorating accepts the three major cryptocurrencies; Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Ethereum. Cryptocurrencies can be used to pay for any of the following painting services:
 

  • Interior house painting
  • Exterior house painting
  • Epoxy floor coatings
  • Commercial painting projects
  • Any other painting or coating service Precision offers

Why You Should Paint Your Home Before You Sell It

If you are preparing to sell your house, painting your walls and ceiling can be one of the cheapest ways to improve the look and atmosphere of your home. Potential buyers are looking for houses that appeal to them and chipped, dull paint does not accomplish this. If your walls need an upgrade, here are a few reasons why you should consider repainting before you put up the “for sale” sign in your front yard.

Attractive Pictures of Your Home

One of the biggest perks of repainting is that you can market your home online with charming pictures of the rooms and hallways. Lately, online searches have attracted more buyers than any other type of marketing platforms. With freshly painted walls, your home can look brighter and cleaner in digital pictures, which can help you find the right buyer.

Your House Can Look and Feel Nicer

A successful paint job can change a buyer’s entire perspective on the condition of a house. Peeling paint, ripped wallpaper, and discolored walls can all lower the value of your home. People who are looking for a new house are expecting a place that isn’t run down and doesn’t require much repair. When your house has a new, attractive layer of paint, it can create an atmosphere that feels welcoming and classy.

First Impressions Are Everything

If you want to sell your house, you’ve only got one chance to impress a potential buyer. As they tour your home or scroll through the pictures online, your goal is to make them feel comfortable and welcome. By painting your walls, you can boost the appearance of your house and increase your chances of getting a few offers.

Overall, painting your house before selling is a smart marketing move. By giving your walls an upgrade, you can improve your entire house’s condition. If you are looking for a painting company that can effectively boost the appearance of your walls with expertise and accuracy, contact Precision Painting & Decoration today.
